Star Trek: Bridge Crew (2017) just got its first big content expansion, now including the late ’80s, early ’90s-era U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701D—the very same captained by Jean-Luc Picard in the iconic TV series Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987-1994).

Created by Ubisoft’s Red Storm Entertainment, the TNG expansion is a $15 DLC which includes two new mission types—Patrol and Resistance, and of course the show’s beloved Bridge, walnut panels and all.

Patrol mode is a bit like the base game’s ‘Ongoing Missions’, letting players roam the galaxy freely and engage in any mission types against the Romulans, while Resistance mode offers the meat of the update—a frenetic cat-and-mouse game against the Borg Cube which takes you on the hunt for three prototype ship modules which ultimately help you defeat the Borg.

A new role, Operations, is also a part of the expansion, which essentially works like a miniature version of FTL (2012) by letting you allocate crew members to 10 different stations: thruster control, main engineering, torpedoes, shield generator, transporter room, astrophysics lab, computer core, phaser control, scanners, and sickbay. These are red shirts, so expect some casualties.

The TNG update will hit HTC ViveOculus Rift, and Windows “Mixed Reality” VR headsets on July 21st. Star Trek: Bridge Crew can also be played on traditional monitors.

The game’s retro launch trailer is certainly a fine touch to what promises to be a nostalgia-induced head trip of Delta quadrant proportions.
