William Shatner, the original face of James T Kirk, returns to facedown an old foe in this new trailer for Digital Extremes’ Star Trek, a tie in to the rebooted film series. This is pretty much the best thing. Star Trek is due on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on April 23 in the US and April 26 in Europe.

Before you freak out, no, this isn’t who you think it is.
William Shatner’s lawyers have issued a cease and desist to developers of Shatter, Sidhe Interactive.
It comes due to the developer apparently using Shatner’s likeness in the game as well as using the song “Mr. Tambourine Man” by Bob Dylan as well as the rights to the Captain Kirk of Star Trek.
Studio head for Sidhe, Mario Wynands, replied back saying: “The GameConsole “report” you reference is what is commonly referred to on the internet as a “joke”. The article is a parody of our game, and has no basis in reality in that it does not in any way reflect our intentions for further development of the Shatter IP or relate to any official statement we have made relating to the game.
“We have the upmost respect for Mr William Shatner and the licensing process, and if we had any intent of using rights related to either Mr Shatner, Star Trek, or Tambourine Man (which we do not) we would do so using the appropriate channels.”
All we’re saying is… woops.

According to the Sony Europe PSN release schedule, on the 19th March William Shatner is set to follow in the hallowed footsteps of David Hasselhof by appearing in Sony PSN title, PAIN.
PAIN was PSNs most downloaded title in 2008 and a celebrity such as Captain James Tiberius Kirk will only serve to keep the juices flowing…or maybe that’s just us?
