Star Trek: Bridge Crew is a lot of fun, but sometimes it’s very difficult. There are plenty of ways your team can run into trouble early on, and since this is a heavily online multiplayer game, this means you can let your entire team down!
Consider this a crash course in bridge brigade readiness, cadet. These five tips will ensure you’re ready to go, no matter the scenario!
Triple Check Your Tracking Controller
No matter which VR system you use, you need to be absolutely sure that you won’t run into tracking issues in the middle of a mission. The good news is to solve this problem before choosing a position on the Bridge.
When the game first starts, you are in a small vessel with menu bars all over the place. While in this main menu, make sure you can reach this entire area without interruption. Try to reach under the console, on the far left and right, and of course the menu above the console. If you are sure that everything works well, you are ready to play without problems with the tracker.
Complete the tutorial. All this.
It cannot be stressed enough, individual position training for this game is very important. Even if you are unlikely to use any one position, you should learn how they all work so that you understand what your team is doing while you are at the station.
Every position on the Bridge can be mastered with minimal training, but learning all the little secrets around each position will make you vastly more efficient when things get a little crazy.
Practice AI Command Patterns
Unless you are playing a match with a full Human Bridge, some of your positions will be controlled by the AI. The captain position has the ability to give basic commands to this AI, and anyone can take over this station when needed.
It is important to learn how the different AI command templates work. Some of the captain’s commands can be given to multiple crew members at the same time, such as charting a Warp course while loading coils, or moving to attack the enemy by arming torpedoes. Think of a better way to use these commands so that you don’t have to constantly jump into AI positions to do everything yourself, and the game becomes much more fun!
