The Gorn fights back

An image appeared earlier on my facebook timeline showing The Gorn and William Shatner, AKA Captain Kirk sitting on a sofa playing a computer game.

It seems to be a trailer for the upcoming Star Trek Video Game. It’s also a great homage to one of the most famous fight scenes in the original series of the show.

If you’ve been in a cave for the last 46 years then this is the famous scene.

After a bit of digging around the Interweb I discovered it was a trailer for the upcoming tie-in computer game for the new film.  This time it’s your chance to play Kirk and defeat The Gorn in combat.

The Gorn gets his revenge

With a storyline occurring after the events of J.J. Abram’s 2009 Star Trek reboot, the Star Trek video game puts players in the shoes of seminal heroes Captain James T. Kirk and Mr. Spock, inviting them to work together to take on the ferocious Gorn in this epic action adventure. Built from the ground up as the ultimate co-op experience, players are set on a journey of immense proportions across unexplored planets and enemy battleships with the latest 23rd century weapons and gear. Kirk and Spock’s complementary personalities result in the most fully realized and varied co-op experience for this console generation.

Available for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 from April 26, 2013
