Star Trek The Video Game is attempting to succeed on its own merits, and unlike most titles that are simply afterthoughts after watching movie, this shooter/space explorer has been three years in the making. But visually does it really go boldly where no gamer has gone before, especially with the recently released new images? See for yourself.

Although a plethora of images have already been released for Star Trek The Video Game, the key to its success partly lies in its storyline. With God of War writer Marianne Krawczyk crafting the story, chances are the narrative has a shot at excellence. Whether gamers play as Kirk or Spock, their mission is to take down the Gorn.

Star Trek The Video Game comes out on the PC, PlayStation 3, and the Xbox 360 on April 23rd. Do any of these images entice you to embark on a special trek? Say something or else Kirk and Spock will continue with their respective death stare.
