The highly-anticipated Oculus Rift virtual reality system, which has already been shown to have such creative uses as controlling aerial drones, immersive therapy for the sick, and even experimental body-swapping, has now been extended to the world of Trek with a new digital demo for touring the bridge of the USS Voyager.

Oculus developer tmek released the demo on Saturday, which allows the user to walk through the Voyager bridge, examine the many display consoles and stations, and even activate a few familiar audio cues from the series.


The last major virtual Voyager venture was Star Trek Voyager – Elite Force, the first-person shooter game released by Activision nearly fifteen years ago.

Oculus, which began through a Kickstarter campaign which raised nearly $2.5 million, made headlines last month when the startup was bought by Facebook in a $2 billion acquisition.
