A Trekkie's Lament

Hello all,

For many years, I have been hunting for a first-person spaceship simulator that allows you to both travel the galaxy AND walk around on board a moving spacecraft. Star Trek TNG gives me the itch and the franchise titles are pretty dated and/or not player friendly.

Steam has been flooded with low-effort examples for years now. And sure, there are many excellent space titles that approximate this (e.g. Mass Effect), but alas no cigar.

In the last Autumn Sale, I managed to get a discount copy of Empyrion which does a great job with survival and exploration mechanics. It helps that the game looks absolutely magical at times. To my disappointment, however, I learned pretty late that you cannot walk around while your ship is in motion. (The physics of vehicles in general are pretty gross, too.)

Will I ever live out my spacefarer fantasies? Or is trek a lost cause?

  • A game you could look into is Star Citizen.  While I dont know much about it or have played it, from what I have seen is it is pretty immersive, huge world, and vast.  It has spaceships you can travel in to explore different enviornments. Another you could look into off the top of my head would be No Mans Sky.
