Honor, Courage, Glory and No Fear of Death...

Are you ready to walk the path of a Klingon warrior?

General Chang, the Empire's greatest living warrior, has established an Elite Command Academy to prepare a new generation of warriors for the inevitable conflict with the United Federation of Planets. As your mentor, Chang will instruct you in the ways of battle tactics and teach you the rigors of warship command. Prove yourself worthy and you may be recruited to fight with Chang in an even greater, real-life conflict - a conflict that will decide the fate of the Klingon Empire.

Death will have its day...

Game Features:

Epic Story - Star Trek Klingon Academy is a prequel to Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, reprising Christopher Plummer as General Chang and David Warner as Chancellor Gorkon.

All New 3D Engine - Stunning visuals and dramatic lighting effects create a realistic 3D universe to explore and conquer.

Solo Play Campaign - 25 action packed missions put you in the middle of all out war.

Multiplayer Gaming - Blow your friends out of the stars via the Internet in a Deathmatch, or join with them to defend the Empire in Cooperative missions.

3D Interactive Space Terrain - Fight in dense nebulae clouds that disrupt sensor data, maneuver through Saturn's rings, and battle within the accretion disk of a black hole.

Command Capital Ships - Command a variety of warships: from the relatively diminutive 'B' rel' class of bird-of-prey, to the enormous 'Accuser' class Dreadnought nearly 3 times the length of the Enterprise!

Innovative Gunnery Chair - Control all your ships' weapons (forward, port, starboard, and aft) while your helmsman maneuvers your warship into position.

Cinematic-Quality Ship Detail - Blow apart an opponent's hull to reveal individually burning decks. Lights flicker as electrical power is disrupted. Plasma belches from twisted and mangled warp nacelles. Scorch marks show the scars of battle.

Over 40 Warships New to the Star Trek Universe - Be the first to battle with never-before-seen ships from the Federation, Klingon, Romulan, Tholian, and Gorn races-as well as that of a new race, the Sha'kurians.

10 New Weapon Systems - Defend the Empire with new weapons technology such as the Antimatter Field Projector Device, the Frequency Modulated Particle Accelerator Cannon, and even the dreaded Assault Phaser!

Welcome to Klingon Academy

From: General Chang, Commandant

To: All New Students Cadet:

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the Elite Command Academy. As you are well aware, attendance at the Academy is by invitation only. We have no standardized tests, no entrance exams here. Your exemplary record of previous service aboard starships in the Imperial Navy has served as your only prerequisite for your acceptance to this institution. Upon examining your record and interviewing your commanding officers we selected you to join us because you have demonstrated the characteristics necessary for starship command. The instructors at this academy, every one of whom walked these halls as a student at one time, will either mold you into a fearless and deadly instrument to ensure the future of our Empire or break you and leave you behind. You may succeed, and success is rewarded with a command upon graduation, but most likely you will fail, which means dismissal and immediate return to your previous posting, but in either event your attendance here places you among a select group of the finest warriors in the Empire. Glory and honor to you, and your house.

Qapla'
General Chang Commandant,
KDF Elite Command Academy

Reviews:

DailyRadar.com by Chuck Osborn

"A sequel of sorts to Starfleet Academy, Klingon Academy is a 3D space battle sim based on the Klingon Empire instead of the namby-pamby Federation. Losing the Starfleet moniker is freeing for the series, since Paramount normally frowns on gratuitous violence between the factions of their beloved Federation, leaving the Klingons to battle willy-nilly in their plans for universal conquest."

"The most oft-mentioned critique of Starfleet Academy was the feel of the ships. Gigantic starships moved and controlled more like sleek starfighters than the huge, lumbering space yachts seen in the TV show and movies. Well, let's just say that Interplay was listening to your complaints. This time around, it really feels like you're commanding a battle cruiser, not a runabout; it takes a few seconds to regain control after collisions, moving 180 degrees seems to take an eternity, and strategic maneuvering requires planning..."

"Likewise, the graphics impressively recreate the space battles in Star Trek VI... And in a non-gameplay aside, the FMV and acting is high quality and wouldn't be out of place on TV..."

"Klingon Academy's biggest accomplishment is making the player feel like an integral part of the game world. For example, in a mission to kidnap an Andorian ambassador, you'll lose him amidst a battle with the Tholians and Federation. You can join in battle or be clever and scan the wreckage for clues to the ambassador's whereabouts, completing your mission without jeopardizing your ship or crew."
