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

Back in the 90s at the height of the Trek craze the idea was that if one were to stick a Star Trek label on something the trekkies(trekkers) would buy it. Read morePublished on February 3, 2010 by General Pete
No manual included. Tip: click on "dagger" symbol in middle at bottom of screen to speak. Doesn't look like the game runs on windows 2000.Published on May 18, 2007 by JohnA37
It was fun to play a Klingon and feel the honor and glory of the culture. I never thought that they had so much going for them. Read morePublished on March 20, 2000
