Hilarious Star Trek: The Video Game Trailer Stars Shatner

Reprise of legendary 1967 TV battle between Shatner's Captain Kirk and lizard-like alien Gorn puts spotlight on the upcoming release of STAR TREK: THE VIDEO GAME.

In the nearly five decades since the U.S.S. Enterprise first ventured into space, her crew has encountered untold foes, but few enemies have been quite as memorable as the Gorn.

The savage, lizard-like race has been seen only fleetingly on screen, most memorably in the TV series' first-season episode "Arena" -- but STAR TREK® The Video Game is about to change that.

Looks like a poor mans Mass Effect.

Love Start Trek but this will be a rental or bargain bin buy.

I dont think Mass Effect would exist were it not for Star Trek...

Surprised to notice Fred Lubens wasn't used for the more "intense" portions of that fight scene. :P

Pretty funny video.

This commercial was made with pure Awesome!

I bet Shatner kept trying to get killed during the game because it's Chris Pine and not him.

Yes yes I'm down to play this so badly.

anast255d ago

Oh, f$%&! They better not mess this up. Trek is miles better than any other Sci-fi franchise.

JackBNimble255d ago

I agree, at the same time no one can seem to make a decent StarTrek game.

I'm with you ... they better not fk this up

Solitariussaint255d ago

Keep up the good work!

They listened and made a physical version of Star Trek Resurgence, which I've pre-ordered, and I hope they make this new game both offline friendly and physical as well!

Immediate reaction - excited for new story driven Star Trek game.

Then I go and check GameXcite's website and see that the only thing they have released are a few Asterix games.

Set expectation to low

This is very cool. I played many versions of Super Star Trek, some text based and some with rudimentary graphics. Back in the day, you’d get games like this off a floppy disk from a friend. I also played the 25th Anniversary Star Trek game. Cool to see a melding of the two.


This fan remake of a Star Trek text game from 1978 is way better than it has any right to be

Super Star Trek 25th is a remake / conversion of the strategy game Super Star Trek, written by Bob Leedom and David Ahl and published in the book BASIC Computer Games in 1978, mixed with the graphics of Star Trek: 25th Anniversary and the voices from ST The Original Series
