Description

Welcome to the Klingon Language Immersion holodeck program. You will be guided by Gowron (his hologram, actually) in this true immersive experience in the Klingon culture. You will participate as Pok, a young Klingon about to take his Rite of Ascension. You start at home getting ready to entertain guests of your father. Be ready to participate in this interactive adventure, so you can truly experience what it feels to be a Klingon.

Klingon is basically a full-motion video click-your-own-adventure. At certain points in the game, you will be given a few seconds to make a decision on what to do. You perform action by clicking on the object onscreen, or do nothing (which is sometimes appropriate). Make the right choice, and the game continues. Make the wrong choice, and Gowron scolds you for not learning, and gives you another chance as the program was "rewound" back to that decision point.

The game also comes packaged with a Klingon Language Lab, which helps to teach you about the Klingon language, complete with speech recognition to correct your Klingon pronunciation.

Nice episode, but way too short, and way too easy! Windows Kasey Chang (3654)
