Star Trek Experience for Apple Vision Pro (Source: Deadline)

The new Star Trek Spatial Experience was created specifically for the new Apple Vision Pro and features two hours of high-quality footage from every era of the series and its films.

As Apple briefly mentioned in its review of Apple's own Vision Pro apps, the Roddenberry Archive brings a Star Trek feel to the device. In collaboration with OTOY Paramount Game Studios, the new Gene Roddenberry Estate project covers every Star Trek show over the last 60 years.

According to Deadline, users can sit in the Quark bar from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine or browse the shelf in Captain Kirk's quarters from the original show.

“Through our long-standing collaboration with OTOY, we have worked to push the boundaries of immersive technology to bring my father's legacy, creativity and ideas to life,” said Rod Roddenberry, President of Roddenberry Entertainment. in a statement to the publication: “in ways that can be experienced today and by future generations.”

Calling it “a wonderful milestone in realizing my father's vision for the Holodeck,” Roddenberry says the project also fulfilled his mother's dream.

“This release also fulfills one of my mother's deepest wishes,” he said. “She recorded her phenomena in 2008 before her death so that her voice would live on for posterity.”

“It’s very moving to me that now her voice is telling parts of the archive,” he continued.

Apple Vision Pro reportedly uses 1 x 1 meter light field cubes that are displayed at 90 frames per second and 4K resolution for each eye.

It includes a number of what Deadline calls downloadable holographic objects. This will mean Star Trek objects that users can react to in the same way that Apple, in its tour of Apple Vision Pro, showed a headset user interacting with a butterfly.
