More details of the new Gorn in latest Star Trek video game updates

The Star Trek: The Video Game twitter repsonded to a question about that having not surfaced with the final release:
During development, we felt Move wasn't making the game better, so we focused STAR TREK on the PS3 game pad controls.
Might have been fun, although I don't think we're missing out in terms of ergonomic design with that thing! While we don't ahve a real-world phaser to play with, there are of course loads of extra weapons among the bits in the pre-order bonus pack:
