Shatner reprises Gorn fight for Star Trek game commercial

For any fan of the old Star Trek series, one of the better episodes was Arena, where Captain James T. Kirk fought against a lizrad-like Gorn. Namco Bandai has gotten William Shatner and the Gorn to reprise their roles in a new TV commercial for the upcoming Star Trek video game. Well, sort of.

Shatner doesn't look bad for 82, even if he doesn't move that well, which is part of the fun. The commercial is a nice tribute to the old series, while showing off the Gorn's return in the new game with a more vicious look. The game, which will follow Chris Pine's Kirk and Zachary Quinto's Spock, is hitting shelves for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on April 23.
