Nearly a year after launch, Star Trek: Bridge Crew is finally getting what Ubisoft tells me is its most requested feature by far: The Next Generation-themed content. But on top of the androids, Borg cubes, and swanky wood-paneled interior, the DLC will also bring a new player role that’s essentially like playing FTL on the Enterprise-D.
While using this iconic new ship, the usual Engineer role gets swapped out for Operations. You still have similar responsibilities to the Engineer - charging warp coils and allocating power - but Operations is also given a side-view map of the Enterprise and a hand full of generic crew to move around it. Moving them to certain systems will provide different bonuses to your ship, and is basically a little mini-game in itself.
