Star Trek: Klingon is an interactive movie/computer game set in the Star Trek universe. It was written by Hilary Bader, directed by Jonathan Frakes, and featured music by Gregory Smith. It was released in 1996 by Simon & Schuster for Windows 3.1, Windows 95, and Mac OS.

Plot and gameplay[edit]

In order to dispel common misbeliefs regarding Klingons, Gowron (Robert O'Reilly) creates a holodeck "immersion studies" program to teach humans about his people's culture.

The player assumes the role of Pok, a young Klingon about to undergo the Rite of Ascension.[1] The celebration is interrupted, however, when Pok's father is killed during an assassination attempt on Gowron's life. Gowron and Pok then swear a blood oath to find the killers and bring them to honorable justice.

Because many of the choices in the game depend upon either Klingon cultural situations, or on explicit instructions given in the Klingon language, the game provides the player with a variety of educational tools. Within the game itself, the player can pause the story and examine objects in each scene to learn more about their significance. The third disc of the game features a language instruction program with a voice-recognition engine by Dragon Systems, in addition to the audiobook Power Klingon, a cultural primer narrated by Michael Dorn.[1]
