A updated look at the bridge of the Enterprise D that some incredibly talented fans of are creating in virtual reality.
A few weeks ago we told you about one of the most incredible Star Trek projects to date. There are so many quality Star Trek fan creations out there, but this takes things to a whole other level. Using the Unreal Engine a developer who goes by the internet handle of Scragnogs is painstakingly recreating the Enterprise D. This means there will soon be an Enterprise that you can walk through and tour on your computer, or even more impressively in virtual reality.
Now Scragnog and his team are back with an updated look at the bridge of the Enterprise D and testing out the real time lighting. The video is a little shaky, but it doesn’t matter, this project just looks fantastic.
This is using a more advanced version of the Unreal engine than the rest of the project is built on, but Scragnog says he’s considering doing a release on this engine for folks with high end computers.
If you haven’t seen the rest of this project it’s certainly worth checking out.
think I speak for all Trekkies when I say HOLY TRIBBLES THIS IS INCREDIBLE! Seriously this is already blowing my mind, but it gets better, much better.
Take a look at the battle bridge.
So I’m sure you’re ready to get your hands on the Enterprise D, and the good news is that there are already downloads of the project, which they are calling Stage 9. Just visit the Stage 9 subreddit for more information. The project isn’t complete yet, but it’s already something very special. We are going to have to toast Scragnog’s victories with blood wine and sing songs of his mighty deeds after this.
This is really is a fantastic day to be Trekkie. I hadn’t yet bought a VR headset, but this just pushed me over the edge.
