To boldly go with Apple Vision Pro

Apple Vision Pro is launched today in the US, and Star Trek fans (myself included) will soon be able to explore Gene Roddenberry's beloved sci-fi franchise with an exclusive spatial app.

In conjunction with OTOY Paramount Game Studios, the Roddenberry Archive spans the entire franchise.

"Through our multi-decade collaboration with OTOY, we have been working to push the frontiers of immersive technology to fulfill my father's legacy, creative intent, and ideas," Rod Roddenberry, President of Roddenberry Entertainment, said in a statement to Deadline, "in ways that can be experienced today and by generations yet to come."

"This release also fulfills one of my mother's greatest wishes," he said. "She recorded her phenoms in 2008 before her passing, to have her voice live on in posterity."

Majel Barrett-Roddenberry recorded the voice of the ship's computer in Star Trek, foreshadowing Alexa and Siri voice assistants.

"It is deeply moving for me to be able to have her voice now narrate portions of the archive," he continued.

Stay tuned for Nick Smith's hands-on with Apple Vision Pro, the Cupertino-based tech titan's spatial computing platform, at his local Apple Store.
