The Gorn species has a major role in the upcoming video game, which will be released for Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and for Download on April 23, 2013, and is set in J.J. Abrams’ rebooted Star Trek universe. The game even features the likeness and voice acting of Chris Pine as Captain Kirk and Zachary Quinto as Spock, both of whom will be seen next month in Star Trek Into Darkness.
The Gorn species was introduced in the original 1967 Star Trek episode “Arena” and last month, the original Captain Kirk, William Shatner, recently had a rematch with the Gorn captain.
In the 1967 episode, Captain James T. Kirk is forced to battle the Gorn captain to the death. In the new video game, the species in reimagined and we get to see more characters from the lizard-like enemy alien race.
The game begins when players choose to become either Kirk or Spock, leading these iconic characters on an incredible story that launches when the USS Enterprise is called to assist a crippled space station near a binary star. What they discover there brings them face to face with the vicious enemy alien race of the Gorn as they try to stop a relentless attack and recover a mysterious device known as Helios — which can bring great progress or, in the wrong hands, wreak unimaginable destruction. The game features the voices of Chris Pine as Kirk, Zachary Quinto as Spock and the leading actors from 2009’s “Star Trek” and the upcoming “Into Darkness,” including Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg, John Cho, Karl Urban and Anton Yelchin.
Star Trek: The Video Game will be released on April 23 in North America and April 26 worldwide by Paramount Pictures and NAMCO Bandai Games.
