Description

Klingon Honor Guard is a first person shooter set in the Star Trek universe. It uses the Unreal engine, with all its accompanying visual eye candy.

As the name suggests, this game stars the Klingons, those lovable growling, bellowing, live-grub scarfing fellows who as a whole are probably more suited to be the subject of a first person kill fest than the peace-loving can't-we-all-just-coexist Federation folks.

As the game starts out you're a new freshman inductee into the Honor Guard, the Empire's most elite group of warriors and bodyguards to the Emperor (of course the Klingon Empire hasn't HAD an Emperor for a couple hundred years, but that's another story). It seems someone has made an assassination attempt on the Empire's head honcho Supreme Chancellor Gowron. The conspiracy runs deep, and not even the members of the Council or the Honor Guard can be trusted. Except you, of course, since you just got here and have no idea what's going on. That's why Honor Guard leader Korek has assigned you to track down the assassins and give them a taste of vengeance, Klingon style. What follows is a sonic disruptor bolt filled, pink blood spilling spree through various Klingon locations such as a Klingon suburb, the penal asteroid Rura Penthe, and even the interior of a Bird of Prey spaceship. Although the way you'll be alternatively taunted and ordered around by your commander Kurn, fight your way through an alien conspiracy, and ultimately face off with a pair of familiar faces from Generations who you'd think would be dead by now.

German version

The German version of this game is censored: the blood effects and the kill cam have been removed. An unofficial "gore-patch" that restores those effects is available however.
