Are you as excited as I am about the news of Sir Patrick Stewart returning as Jean-Luc Picard in a new Star Trek series? Well, now you can nerd out in style with Stage 9 which let's you explore the Enterprise-D from Star Trek The Next Generation.

Sent in by a reader, who also happens to be one of the people working on it, Stage 9 aims to recreate the entirety (inside and out) of the Enterprise-D using Unreal Engine 4. They also gave me a little fun fact, that the Linux version seems to be more popular than the Mac version.

You can see a recent release video below:

Performance is a bit hit and miss and at one point I had to perform an emergency transport, as I seemed to fall out of the Turbolift into space—quite amusing. I also got blown up in a warp core breach, so that was certainly something. 

Also, they recently shared an update on progress towards the next version:

A fun idea, will be interesting to see how far they can push it. As much as I love some fan projects, I do fear the eventual copyright hammer coming down on them.

Find out more on their official website. You can download the Linux build here, once you extract the archive find the "Stage9Linux.sh" file and run it. They also have a Discord Channel you can join.

Getting an error about vulkan-1.dll missing? Click me to download!

But why? Even if that was a MoltenVK wrapped game , is it still needed?

By the way, is the new PatStew series at all related to the next season of 'Discovery'? In the latter they're introducing time travel, so Captain Pike seems to be a regular character -- and if that is so, then Spock is certain to be introduced. (So much for 'a completely new direction', I guess; though I haven't watched Discovery at all yet.)

I think I saw online somewhere that you can. There's lots of fun functionality, like practicing at the phaser range or flying a shuttle out of the ship. SO excited this is coming to Linux!
