Star Trek: Captain's Chair is a virtual reality tour of the bridges of five of the most famous starships in the Star Trek universe. Featured are the bridges seen in Star Trek: The Original Series, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: Voyager, and the Sovereign-class first seen in Star Trek: First Contact.
The following bridges are featured:
- USS Enterprise (NCC-1701)
- USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-D)
- USS Defiant (NX-74205)
- USS Voyager (NCC-74656)
- USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-E)
While on each bridge, the "visitor" can interact with full 360 degree views, along with the ability to control each and every station including (but not limited to):
The user is not limited to each starship's bridge, as one can visit adjacent locations such as the captain's ready room and observation lounge. The captain's chair on each starship bridge also features buttons that reveal personal greetings from actors who narrate the tour of each bridge, such as George Takei, Avery Brooks, and Kate Mulgrew.
- Majel Barrett (Computer voice)
- Jonathan Frakes (William T. Riker)
- Avery Brooks (Benjamin Sisko)
- Michael Dorn (Worf)
- Kate Mulgrew (Kathryn Janeway)
- George Takei (Hikaru Sulu)
There are several "Easter eggs" on each bridge, such as visiting the bridge of a Klingon Bird-of-Prey, with a limited (and translated) interface, and a tribble on the floor, as well as a "memory"-style game matching similar weaponry and equipment.
