Following a leak over the weekend, Ubisoft have announced a major new entry in the Star Trek Gaming Franchise yesterday.
Star Trek Bridge Crew is being developed by Ubisoft in partnership with Red Storm Entertainment and is the first Star Trek game being developed for virtual reality headsets such as the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.
In Star Trek: Bridge Crew, the Federation dispatches you and your crew to command the new vessel U.S.S. Aegis as part of a critical initiative. Your 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. The Trench contains stunning beauty and undiscovered wonders, but also strange anomalies and dangers yet unknown. The Klingon Empire is also active in the region, and their purpose is undoubtedly a threat to the Federation’s plans. It’s up to you and your crew to chart the sector to determine the Klingons’ aims, and to secure a peaceful Federation presence.
Star Trek: Bridge Crew puts you and your friends in the heart of a starship, where- as officers of the Federation- every action and decision you make together will determine the fate of your ship and crew. Developed specifically for VR, Star Trek: Bridge Crew is the only game to offer a true-to-life level of immersion in the Star Trek universe.

Star Trek Gaming has been making a cautious resurgence in 2014 two new official games announced. This follows the release of Star Trek: Trexels for mobile devices in 2013 and the ongoing existence of Star Trek Online.
In April 2014, Disruptor Beam, a Boston-based game developer, announced the development of Star Trek Timelines, a multiplayer strategy RPG set in the Prime Universe that will cover every era of the franchise’s history, from the Enterprise-era through the TNG-era.
Disruptor Beam CEO Jon Radoff explained:
Temporal anomalies, mirror universes and time travel have been recurring themes throughout all the Star Trek series and several of the films. This will form the basis of Star Trek Timelines, and gives us the opportunity to explore a lot of “what-if” scenarios: what if Spock and Jean-Luc Picard got to serve on the same ship? What would it be like to have members of the mirror universe’s Terran Empire on your crew? This game will allow you to join forces with your favorite characters from across the many eras and universes from Star Trek lore—and then make decisions that impact the future of civilizations, star systems and the galaxy itself.
On September 12th 2014, Star Trek: Alien Domain was announced on StarTrek.com.
Star Trek: Alien Domain, a new multiplayer online strategy game, will launch later this year via GameSamba, in conjunction with CBS Interactive and NGames. Playable by web browser, the game will be set in the mysterious, extra-dimensional realm of Fluidic Space – as seen in Star Trek: Voyager. Players will make strategic decisions to maintain control over limited resources, balance defensive spending with research, establish colonies and prioritize power distribution for optimal efficiency. Also, players can opt to participate in such PvP encounters as raids against player-controlled outposts, one-on-one skirmishes and large-scale, guild vs. guild Alliance Battles.
Alien Domain will unfold after the most chronologically recent Star Trek canon and thus will feature a new Star Trek story, with players able to use a variety of starships and technologies native to their chosen faction. Starships will include Defiant-class and Constitution-class starships for the Federation, and D7 Battle Cruisers and Bird-of-Prey for the Klingon Empire. Players will even be able to craft and pilot unprecedented super-starships created through emerging technologies. Forming a diverse starship fleet will be essential for exploring the deep reaches of Fluidic Space and quelling its threats, as
