Check Out This Amazing Virtual Enterprise-D Built For The Oculus Rift

As you can see in the video above demoing his work so far, no detail has been spared. From the glorious entrance on a shuttlecraft, to the model Enterprises in the observation lounge, it’s a very faithful duplicate.

According to Jason, he wants his version to be completely explorable; to serve as a “virtual museum”. It’s currently being built in Unreal Engine 4, which going by the visuals here, certainty has the graphical chops.

The only issue — other than Jason having enough time and willpower to finish it — is how license owner CBS feels about the endeavour:

There is also the matter of licensing. I will seek CBS’ blessing to continue to create this. But to release it as a product, licensing will have to be procured. More people hired, a serious road map put into place. Games aren’t cheap. But, for now, the project exists to build a truly immersive Enterprise experience. If there is interest, I will take it all the way.

Fingers crossed CBS doesn’t shut it down.
