CBS Consumer Products and ReedPOP are bringing a gamer’s dream to this year’s Star Trek: Mission New York with Star Trek: Bridge Crew, an all-new virtual reality video game from Ubisoft. Star Trek: Mission New York will take place September 2–4 at the Javits Center, the birthplace of the original Star Trek Convention. To help celebrate the 50th anniversary milestone of the franchise, Ubisoft will be headlining the new interactive Star Trek Gaming Zone on the show floor along with other top gaming exhibitors.
Star Trek: Bridge Crew takes fans onto the bridge of a Starfleet ship where players will operate as a crew. Players assume the positions of Captain, Helm, Tactical or Engineering while navigating space and working together to complete their objectives. In Star Trek: Bridge Crew, developed by Ubisoft’s Red Storm Entertainment, the Federation dispatches crew members to command the new vessel U.S.S. Aegis as part of a critical initiative. The mission: explore a largely uncharted sector of space known as the Trench, in hopes of locating a suitable new home world for the decimated Vulcan populace. Star Trek: Bridge Crew is described as an immersive experience that puts the fate of the U.S.S. Aegis and its crew directly into players’ hands.
Along with Star Trek: Bridge Crew from Ubisoft, there will be other exhibitors occupying the Gaming Zone that Star Trek fans can choose from, including:
- Star Trek Online developed by Cryptic Studios
- Star Trek Timelines developed by Disruptor Beam
- Gale Force Nine
- Mayfair Games
The three-day event will be the ultimate destination for Star Trek fans, filled with interactive exhibits, exclusive merchandise, celebrity guests, panels, screenings and more. Its creation adds to a year filled with Star Trek events and experiences celebrating the franchise’s milestone 50th anniversary. Star Trek: Mission New York will take place September 2–4 at the Javits Center in Manhattan. Additional details about the event, including ticket sales, hotel information, guests and exhibitors will be revealed very soon.
