This trailer offers a new look at Star Trek: The Video Game, the upcoming Kirk and Spock co-op action game. The clip features gameplay footage, and commentary from Paramount's Brian Miller, executive producer on the game. "Kirk is this brash cowboy character, whereas Spock is the exact opposite – and when you break down Star Trek to those elements, you had to make a co-op game," Miller explains. "There was no other game we could possibly make."

The game looks like a crude movie tie-in game designed to be little more than a cash grab. I hope I am wrong, but I did not see any deep component to the game and it reminds me a lot of other tie-ins.
As for the new Star Trek, it is a good popcorn flick, but I think it is probably is a poor Star Trek film. It focuses on action and style, it feels like a generic science-fiction film wearing Star Trek clothing, it certainly does not respect the core ideas of Star Trek/Rodenberry, has a few absurd or illogical moments, etc. More than these items, they neither continued the Star Trek world nor refreshed it - they just tossed out yet another time traveling story, changed one point, and then basically agreed to retell the existing stories, but with minor tweaks.
It is a fun, stupid action film, but I really have no idea what it has to do with Star Trek or what it added to the overall story/series. DS9 is the best in the series. Hands down. Trying out Crossfire for the first time, Ray
