Star Trek Villains: The Gorn

TREK GALLERY

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.

“When we started development on the game more than three years ago, one of the first decisions we had to make was: Who was the enemy?” says the game’s executive producer, Brian Miller. “The Gorn immediately jumped to the top of the list. And now, as gamers and fans ourselves, we couldn’t be more excited to bring one of the most popular and iconic science fiction villains of all time to the video-game space.”

A new video feature by Paramount Pictures delves further into the mythos and the mystery of the Gorn, and their reinvention for STAR TREK THE VIDEO GAME. Grab some popcorn, children and witness their labors.

STAR TREK The Video Game releases April, 23 and is now available for pre-ordering.  Pre-orders include a special “Elite Officer Pack” with exclusive weapons and uniforms.  In addition, GameStop PowerupRewards members who pre-order STAR TREK The Video Game for Playstation 3 or Xbox 360 will also receive an exclusive KRE-O mini-build of the U.S.S. Enterprise and a collectible poster.

Now you’ve seen the video, comment below about the gameplay and the newest rebooted Star Trek villains. I, for one, am interested to see how they handle story-telling with enemies like this who have no lips. No lips, no humanly-understandable language. Do they text their threats? How is their grammar and spelling? Or will the developers just give us voice-overs regardless of the Gorn’s physiology like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? What about the third-person perspective? Let’s chat in comment below, shall we?
