Picking up where their battle in the classic 1967 “Star Trek” episode “Arena” left off, Shatner and the Gorn trade the show’s rocky desert setting for a comfortable living room and toss pillows instead of stones.
Shatner got into it with his old adversary again to promote Star Trek: The Video Game, which pits Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock against a new and radically redesigned race of Gorns. So it was the ideal occasion to re-create one of the most memorable moments from the original “Star Trek.”
Talking with the production/creative team following the shoot recently,
Shatner said, “It never ceases to amaze me how many people still ask me about that scene. It’s 46 years later, and he hasn’t aged as well as I have.”
Set in the new canon of director and producer J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek (2009) reboot, players will be immersed in the game’s rich story and action-packed combat!
Star Trek The Game will be released on April 23, 2013 – US and April 26, 2013 – UK.
