Star Trek The Video Game Reinvents a Classic Star Trek Villain
Peter Donnell / 5 years ago
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 released today by Paramount Pictures delves further into the mythos and the mystery of the Gorn, and their reinvention for the new game.
