Details are scarce, but here is what we know:  a mysterious creature has crossed a fissure in time and entered the Atlantic Ocean.  The creature, which has been described as a giant sea monster, appeared in 1915 and destroyed many German U-boats, including the one that would have sunk the Lusitania.  As a 

result, the U.S. never entered World War I, and Germany conquered Europe.  World War II never happened, 

and the United States never fully recovered from the Great Depression.  Democracies were destroyed, and important advances in science, technology, and medicine never happened. You must travel back in time, find the mysterious creature, and stop it before it can destroy the German U-boat.  It must sink the Lusitania in order for the timeline to be restored!

Hololab Champions

Grab your safety goggles and set out on a chemical-burning, liquid-stirring, camera-whirring competition in HoloLAB Champions, a virtual reality chemistry game show.  HoloLAB Champions is a virtual reality chemistry game show, where you complete lab experiments to become a Champion of lab practice. Interact with equipment and materials that you'd find in an actual lab. You must finish your experiments safely and accurately to earn points for entrance into the Hall of Brains. Scoop, pour, and burn your way to mastery in the HoloLAB. Your holographic host Earl and his sidekick Meyer guide you through a series of mini-labs that lead up to an ultimate lab challenge. Score achievements and do your best to earn an elemental trophy in this amazing Labstravaganza.

Star Trek Bridge Crew puts you and your classmates in the heart of a starship.  As officers of the Federation, every action and decision you make together will determine the fate of your ship and crew.  The federation will dispatch you and your crew to command the new, USS Aegis (Eee-gis), as part of a critical initiative. 


Your mission: explore a largely uncharted sector of space known as the Trench in hopes of locating a suitable new homeworld for the decimated Vulcan populace.  The Trench contains stunning beauty and undiscovered wonders, but also strange anomalies and dangers yet unknown.  The Klingon Empire is also active in the region, and their purpose is undoubtedly a threat to the Federation's plans. It's up to you and your crew to chart the sector to determine the Klingon's aims and secure a peaceful Federation presence.

However, it's not just the Klingons you'll have to worry about, you will test your combat skills even further against the stealthy cloaked Romulan fleet and the virtually unstoppable Borg.
