The Blu-ray release plans to go where no home entertainment release has gone before with a bonus feature that’s on the packaging. An interactive tour of the Enterprise.

Variety describes it as this:

With the packaging feature dubbed “augmented reality,” consumers will be able to hold their disc packaging in front of any standard webcam to unlock an interactive hologram on the computer screen, through which they can tour five cabins on the Enterprise, even shooting enemies from the ship’s deck.

Users will have to log in to a website to access the feature, but they control the hologram by holding the disc packaging.
