pemStar Trek: Klingon/em was a computer game published by emSimon & Schuster
Interactive/em in 1996. It was available in two versions, one for emWindows/em and
one for emMacintosh/em. The game features a video based interactive story with
quite limited gameplay. Packaged with the game came a bonus CD with a
standalone piece of software, the “Language Lab” – a limited language course
for learning Klingon which features the voice of Marc Okrand./p


pIn the package you’ll find three CDs, the first two of which contains the game
“Star Trek: Klingon”. The game is more of an interactive video, and less of an
actual computer game. (In todays standard – as of 2013 – the resolution of the
video is subpar, but that’s to be expected considering the relatively long
playing time and the limited space.)/p

pThe video (or game, if you want to call it that) features all the actors we’ve
come to know and love from TNG, and gives some insight in the Klingon culture,
but apart from that there isn’t much be gained there./p


pThe third CD, the “Language Lab,” is an interactive language course with a
Klingon style interface. It teaches Klingon words, divided into several
different categories. This emLanguage Lab/em also contains a tool to help you with
your pronunciation – speak to it and the computer will aid you and give
suggestions to help you improve (I have not tested this feature myself)./p

pEven if you manage to get a hold of a copy emStar Trek: Klingon,/em getting it run
might pose a bit of a challenge, since the game will only run under older
versions of emWindows/em (such as emWindows 3.1/em, emWindows 95/em or possibly emWindows
98/em or emME/em – it is known to not start under emWindows XP/em and later versions).
However, there are many audio files on the emLanguage Lab/em disk, and video files
from the two game disks, which may be viewed even without running the game.
(Though the video files are in an uncommon format, and may require special
tools to be made viewable.)/p

pThe game was published by emSimon & Schuster Interactive,/em and was available for
emWindows/em (ISBN nobr0-671-52873-4/nobr) and emMacintosh/em
(ISBN nobr0-671-52872-6/nobr)./p
