Star Trek: Bridge Crew has once again been delayed, with publisher Ubisoft telling Trek fans the game will now be released in May.
Strangely, the delay has been attributed to the addition of additional content in the form of The Original Series‘ U.S.S. Enterprise bridge, seen in part above.
“We felt it was important to include a part of classic Star Trek with this game, especially during Star Trek’s 50th anniversary,” said Red Storm’s David Votypka. “The original U.S.S. Enterprise is such an iconic part of the franchise – it’s the ship that started it all.”
Trek fans may be scratching their heads a bit — Bridge Crew has been confirmed for the new film franchise’s Kelvin timeline, featuring Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto as Kirk and Spock rather than stalwarts William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy. Despite the continuity problems, Red Storm says the original series needs to be honoured.
“The adventures and relationships that took place on the ship are a special part of Star Trek history, so we were determined to give players the opportunity to create their own adventures and stories on this classic ship,” Votypka continued.
