J J Abrams in his infinite wisdom DID NOT include William Shatner in his reboot of Star Trek – but that’s not stopping the makers of the new Star Trek video from including Shatner in a new promo.

Shattner parodies himself in this clip (and for good measure we’ve put the classic 1967 clip of his first encounter with the gorn too!)

the new game is set for official release on April 26th 2013


and the classic episode bit that is being parodied:

Star Trek: Typhon Pact #2: Seize the Fire is technically speaking a Typhon Pact book – but really it’s mostly about our favorite starship – the Luna class – Titan – commanded by the mammal known as Captain Riker.

Seize the Fire benefits from the skilled hand of author Michael Martin who understands better than most how to craft true Star Trek tales.

From beginning to the end, this was one of the best Star Trek novels we’ve read all year with some twists, and a consistent sense of urgency and drama that made this book impossible to put down.

We’ve never really cared much for the Gorn, but this book will change that – we know have new insight into their cast system and their sense of honor and obligation to the ‘legal casters’.

The mystery of the Brama-Shiva artifact is also not yet done – and likely will re-emerge in another Titan tale, just like White-Blue – from the last Titan book – Star Trek Titan Synthesis – made a return in this book.

Not a whole lot of advancement in the Typhon Pact storyline though – at the end a Typhon Pact fleet is racing in … it’ll be interesting to see how this book ties into the great whole…
