Are you out of your Vulcan mind ?

Only last week we walked around the bridge of Voyager and wished somebody would create an Enterprise demo. Well we didn’t have to wait long as only a week later young Irish developer Enda O’ Connor has released his version of the original 1960s USS Enterprise.

Enda has said he has spent somewhere between 100 and 150 hours creating this demo in Unity and it shows that he is a true Trek fan as it looks fantastic. Unlike the gorgeous Voyager bridge demo which was created with Unreal 4 this Enterprise demo has a less realistic look but is still just as striking as the lighting effects are similar to what you would have seen as a child viewing the original TV series. The set design looks pretty close to perfect to me but I’m sure some of you diehard fans will be able to spot some small inconsistencies.

One of my favourite parts is viewing the bridge from the viewing screen as this would have been the location of the main camera from the original TV series. It really is a trip down memory lane and I can visualise the crew going about their business as Kirk throws out the orders and Spock makes some comment on being illogical.

I love these nostalgic demos and I’m sure soon enough we will get an Enterprise next generation demo but if you’re like me and love the original ship,  why download this demo as it will bring a smile to your face. I’d also like to say a big thanks to Enda for creating this demo, May you live long and prosper.
