With just over a month to go, Ubisoft has once again delayed its upcoming Star Trek: Bridge Crew virtual reality title, pushing its launch back to the end of May.

Part of Ubisoft's commitment to launching cross-platform virtual reality games, including Eagle Flight and Werewolves Within, Star Trek: Bridge Crew was originally to launch towards the end of 2016. Ubisoft's decision to commit to making all its VR games cross-platform compatible, including Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and PlayStation VR, though, hit it hard: The launch date was pushed back to March 14th, a date Ubisoft has been working towards since.

Sadly for those eager to take to the bridge of a starship, that delay was apparently not long enough to finish things off: Developer Red Storm Entertainment has confirmed that the game is to be delayed once again, this time until May 30th.

As a trade-off for the delay, Red Storm creative director David Votypka has confirmed the addition of a few familiar faces to the game: the original crew from Star Trek: The Original Series. 'We felt it was important to include a part of classic Star Trek with this game, especially during Star Trek's 50th anniversary,' claimed Votypka. 'The original USS Enterprise is such an iconic part of the franchise - it's the ship that started it all. 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.'

Star Trek: Bridge Crew is now scheduled to launch simultaneously on Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and PlayStation VR on May 30th.
