If you want to wring maximum pleasure from this post, I suggest imagining every word coated in the tendril-like glue that is the movie/TV slow-mo deep voice sound effect. It is, after all, only fitting, given that the grand majority of the new Star Trek trailer drives well under the warp speed limit. Running, seemingly suicidal cliff diving, and a bit of covering shooting are the orders of the day here, but with the grace and poise of the creature we humans so desperately envy: the sloth. Admittedly, the whole thing looks a bit Gears-of-Star-Trek-War-ish, but well, not every game can be FTL. As is, I’m anticipating some light, easily digestible shooting action with the occasional heartwarming Kirk-Spock co-op BFF moment. Beam past the break to watch the full trailer.
Star Trek’s looking to launch shortly before the second reboot movie drops early next year. Apparently, Spock and Kirk will pool their brains and brawn to “stop a legendary enemy race bent on conquering the galaxy.” Hardly boldly going where no game has gone before, but I’d still spend a king’s ransom on this thing if it included an unlockable William Shatner skin. Even if it was pre-order bonus.
