Gowron, the eccentric Klingon chancellor, has concluded that humans just don't understand Klingons and the best way to change that is to teach some humans about Klingon customs and warrior culture. For this reason, Gowron has chosen the player to be his first human student. The player and him enter a holodeck simulation about a young Klingon, who is about to become a warrior. During his coming-of-age party, his father is killed while attempting to save the guest of honor, Gowron, from a cowardly assassination attempt. Gowron makes a blood oath with the young Klingon that they will find and avenge his father's killers and his would-be assassins. During their investigation, the player learns through the eyes of the young Klingon about the ways of the Klingons. The game comes on three CDs, but the third disk is actually an in-depth language lab, where Gowron and Marc Okrand, the creator of Klingon language, teach the player Klingon in fine detail.

Not bad.
28 March 2005 | by See all my reviews

This game plays out in a very similar fashion to Star Trek: Borg. It's basically a running video and every now and then the action semi-pauses (not like a VCR pause, mind you...basically the characters, action, and environment allow you a few moments) for you make a point-and-click decision at specific times.

Overall, the only role that can be considered well-acted is that of Gowron, a character seen in several television episodes of The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine. The other folks, despite the fact most of them have played at least bit parts in Trek episodes themselves, overact far too much (even for Star Trek fare).

As with most "quest" style games, the re-playability post winning is going back and seeing how many different ways you can die. People who have played Star Trek: Borg will note the quality of the video and interface are decidedly grainier. Though both games were released the same year, Klingon was apparently developed using cheaper or older formats.

Worth a run-through or two, at least for Star Trek fans, pedestrian or otherwise.
