Product Description

From the Manufacturer

In this holodeck adventure, you are Pok, a young Klingon warrior caught up in the dangerous circles of Klingon clan politics. On the day of your Rite of Ascension, your father is murdered in his own home. It is up to you, with the help of Gowron, leader of the Klingon High Council, to find the murderer and close the circle of vengeance. Along the way you will encounter strange aliens and treacherous friends and even serve aboard the mighty Bird of Prey, the Tagana.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for any Klingon fan, female or male December 18, 1999
This interactive, multimedia, CD-ROM story-game is designed to appeal to females, primarily. The idea of the game is not to beat the game as quickly as possible to get to the end, but to explore all avenues of every choice you must make. If played properly, it will keep you in stitches, and on your toes for hours. Robert O'Reilly, (who rightfully earned Best Actor for Multimedia presentations) as Gowron, leader of the Klingon Empire, and mentor of this Federation training program, is magnificiently fatherly and funny at the same time. When you play this game, you honestly feel as if you ARE Pok, the initiate to Gowron's mentor. Woefully, the writers return Gowron to a two-dimensional trickster in the end, but the game definitely overcomes this single flaw.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Unique Experience February 6, 2000
Verified Purchase
A unique experience. A rowdy band of Klingons drags you along in a well-acted movie tale of honor and revenge with a couple dozen interactive points for you to advance the action. However, before the adventure begins you must learn and be tested on 8 lessons in Klingon language and customs. The two segments take several hours each to complete.

3.0 out of 5 stars You have to be a hardcore fan of Star Trek, or Klingons September 3, 2004
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I'd say the game is great. But I'm a fan of Klingons - I'm even learning their language.

So unless you're really interested in their culture, you might not have much fun with it - as others said, it's basically a movie, you only sit and watch.

For a game, there are far too few interaction points - mostly it's obvious what you have to do anyway.

Still, considering it's one of the few good sources of klingon culture, it's worth the buy.

A special bonus to those learning the language is the Klingon Language Lab - a vocabulary trainer. A good one. It even features a rought voice-recognition, allowing you to train your pronounciation. Video examples of Gowron speaking a word are the icing on it IMO.

Now to the bad side of it:

The graphics are mediocre at best - whoever did the digitalisation was VERY careless(resizing from 320x240 to 320x200, distorting the look slightly), so don't expect "movie quality". The MACIntosh version has better graphics, btw, so I'd go for that one if possible.

Also, the game won't run on any system than Win3.11 or Win9X . I've tried to run it on Win2K with compatibility, without, etc.. Didn't work. My guess is that the program uses some video functions that aren't supported by Win2K anymore - I got audio once, but no video.

Even if it would run, the game cannot adjust to your resolution settings - it's hardcodec on 320x200 - so it'll rest on the upper left.

Annoying, but nothing serious.

The language lab, however, DOES run on Win2K without problems. Which might be reason enough to buy it - if you are interested in tlhIngan Hol.

Bottom line:

If you like Klingons - buy it. If not - think twice about it.

2.0 out of 5 stars A movie, nothing more. November 23, 2000
Star Trek Klingon is a short "made for TV" movie where you control the outcome. There is nothing more to it.
While the game features good direction by Frakes and at times, you do feel a part of the story, you will get bored rather quickly.
What keeps the game from being a total bust is the Klingon Language factory, where you get a chance to speak Klingon into the microphone and be graded on the pronunciation. Quite fun!
As a Star Trek Fan, this is a collector's item, but I don't find myself playing the game often.

Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
the pic here states, when enlarged , for win95/3.1 by SSI/viacom, like my box here, yet the descritption posted with it says for it is by Pearson Software & for win95/98/ME. I'ne alerted amazon & hopefully this will be resolved soon and the 2 versions posted seperately.

If you have win98, don't expect this to install on win95 [unless u have some magic vid-card???]. It shoould work in XP as i was told those people can alt click to a menu at install to choose under which of any of the older operating systems it should format itself

However , the language lab is much, much fun, and good graphics, and it is rather excitingly funny, such as "Continue to install if you are klingon, or leave if you are ferengi!" and "Remove that honorless disk and insert the correct one!" It will make you laugh for sure, and with some surprises. I can hear the first opening dialogue, and the characters race through their lines, all in klingon, so you better invest a lot of time and not be rusty in your interactive listening skills.

...However, with win98, if you have the win95/3.1 SSI version, the actual game CD [2 of 3 CD's are the game] only displays a colored bar at the top of the screen , on my Nvidia GeForce FX5200 128mb vid-card.

-continuing... The "learn klingon" cd program has several modes: recognizing phenomes, vowels & consonant sounds, and words/ vocab. It also recognizes your voice too, with a dragonspeak(R) program, and grades you as if you were a cadet in a class. Totally self-paced. You can click the instructor or one of the B'etor sisters to have them repeat the word or phrase as often as you like before choosing an answer in klingon letters or picture of an item.
