Star Trek VR games Dark Remnant launches at Dave and Buster's

VR Studios have announced the immediate release of Star Trek: Dark Remnant, a new Kelvin timeline VR game available to play at Dave and Buster's venues across North America. Here's how they describe it:
“Star Trek: Dark Remnant”– an interactive intergalactic experience that is now available to play nationwide, thrusting players into a perilous rescue mission alongside the Enterprise at the edge of Klingon space.

Star Trek: Dark Remnant puts you in control of the U.S.S. Galileo, Starfleet’s latest and most advanced stellar research vessel, accompanying the U.S.S. Enterprise on a routine mission to evacuate a stellar observatory located in the middle of the Klingon Neutral Zone and learn more about the decaying neutron star it orbits. When the neutron star collapses prematurely it leaves the Enterprise incapacitated. It’s now up to YOU to protect her from stellar debris – and the unwelcome arrival of a Klingon ship out for vengeance.

With several completely different endings combined with other elements of variability, including subtle differences in gameplay, randomized player characters, and dialogue that responds real-time to your performance, Star Trek: Dark Remnant is never the same experience twice. You might even observe the fate of a poor redshirt ensign!
Developed by Strange Reptile, the game lets multiple players (the promo released seems to suggest four at a time) control the Galileo's phasers, deflector shields, and sensors as the story unfolds, all while strapped into a VR simulator and wearing VR headsets to be completely immersed in the action. Continue below for preview images and video:


Sadly we don't get a look at the USS Galileo (unless it is also Constitution class), but here are the Enterprise and Klingon ship from the game:


And here's a trailer:
