Star Trek Klingon Academy For Mac

Star Trek Klingon Academy was the second old Star Trek game that I had for the windows operating system. This game was difficult, fun, and gave a deeper look into General Change and the Klingon Empire. At this point, our family had Windows ME (Millennium Edition). For those who don't know of this OS, it was short lived because of all the bugs associated with it. To make matters even worse, this game also had many bugs as well since the dev team on it was let go shortly after release and only 2 patches were released for it.

Enjoy playing The Old Star Trek Game - Klingon Academy On A Mac!

This was one of the games that I had the most fun with. As a kid, I saved up my allowance and did extra chores around the house to save up enough money to buy this game. I was estatic to to play this game and I was hoping that the next game would be Romulan Academy. I loved the new VOS (Verbal Orders System) and how the ships FELT big. The larger ships turned much more slowly and had weapons pointing out of the sides and the rear while the smaller ships usually had only a forward weapons array and were faster and could out maneuver the larger ones. Watch out though as the larger ships could destroy some smaller ones in a single salvo!

I did like the demo. It felt much faster paced than the later game. It was like a breath of fresh air. But at times it did feel like you were in the seat of a fighter instead of a starship. The weapons were much more accurate as well.
