It looks like William Shatner will be doing a voice over for an upcoming Star Trek video game:

“WILLIAM SHATNER is hoping that his voice over work for the next Star Trek game could spark a renewed interest in the franchise. Shatner, who played Captain James T. Kirk in the original series, has agreed to reprise his role in the new Star Trek: Legacy game which is due out in October. Interest in Star Trek is waning after Star Trek: Enterprise was mercifully canned last year and no feature films planned until 2008.

Shatner told Reuters in a telephone interview that interest was waning because Trek has been around a long time. He thinks it needs something new and different. Shatner, who doesn’t play video games, hopes the gaming medium can keep the “Star Trek” flame burning. He added if Legacy was a good game, keeping true to the characters and having an interesting story that branches, it could bring freshness to a franchise like ‘Star Trek.”
