gamescom: This Star Trek trailer reintroduces the Gorn

While it had been previously announced that the Gorn would be what Spock and Kirk get to shoot at in Digital Extremes' Star Trek, this isn't what I was expecting. Can you blame me? This game, due out early next year, picks u...

E3: Star Trek hands-off event was NOT like Disney World

It's kind of unfair to compare Star Trek to Star Wars 1313, and I know I'm only furthering the Star Wars vs. Star Trek rivalry, but there's no way I could not think about my hands-off LucasArts session. Whereas the Star Wars ...

There are a lot of good antagonists in the Star Trek universe, most notably the Klingon Empire and the Borg Collective. But ever since William Shatner dodged polystyrene rocks being thrown by a man in a lizard suit, people ha...

Preview: Star Trek is shaping up to be something special photo
Preview: Star Trek is shaping up to be something special
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

The stigma of bad videogame tie-ins with movie franchises is very hard to overcome. Often rushed to coincide with the corresponding film's release, movie based games almost always suck. So you'll have to forgive me for initially ignoring everything related to Digital Extremes' Star Trek, set to take place between the fantastic 2009 film and upcoming sequel.

Namco Bandai showed off the latest at a recent press event and I honestly have to say I was a little blown away. The game is looking pretty great in the visuals and it actually looks like it could be a fun third-person shooter experience.
