Star Trek: Bridge Crew getting 'The Next Generation' expansion on July 21

Star Trek: Bridge Crew is going all in on The Next Generation with a new DLC pack. While PlayStation VR players will be able to step into the shoes of Captain Jean-Luc Picard a little earlier on May 22, Windows Mixed Reality, HTC Vive, and Oculus Rift owners will get their chance on July 21.

While Star Trek: Bridge Crew launched with access to the original U.S.S Enterprise bridge, The Next Generation will let players step into virtual reality to helm the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701D. The DLC also includes a new command role, Operations, which focuses on managing the crew, Ubisoft says.

The Romulans and Borg are also introduced in this DLC as new enemies. That's alongside two new mission types, Patrol and Resistance. From Ubisoft:

In Patrol, players are free to roam the galaxy while exploring random encounters and answering distress calls for hours on end. Resistance mode offers more frenetic gameplay, as you and your crew are chased by the seemingly unstoppable Borg Cube and must collect three prototype ship modules before you're able to face the Borg head-on and expect any chance of success.
