William Shatner fights a lizard for Star Trek: The Game

Gorn but not forgotten

It may be Chris Pine's James T. Kirk who will face off against the reptilian Gorn in the upcoming Star Trek: The Game, but it was William Shatner who first fought these scaly buggers back in Star Trek: The Original Series.

Shatner's hilariously awkward scrap in "Arena" is one of the most iconic TV fight scenes, primarily for how absolutely awful it is. To promote the new game, the now portly ex-captain has a rematch against his old nemesis, and it's just as well choreographed as their original battle.

Star Trek: The Game comes out on April 23 for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360, and it doesn't sound like it's going to be very good.
