Deep Space Nine hosts the Enterprise and Gowron for talks between the Federation and the Empire. At night, after the official negotiations have ended, Gowron tells the tale of a young Klingon warrior's quest to avenge his father. Pok's story weaves beautifully with the intrigue of the political situation.

On the other hand, this book needed an editor it did not get. Unless people in the future really do take percussions to avoid fights.

Crossovers rarely work, period. That is one of the constants with working with a spin-off series concept.

“Star Trek: Klingon” is a novelization of the CD-ROM with the same title, which I should note I've never played. In the novelization Gowron tells the story of the CD-ROM in Quark's bar. It also just happens that the crew of the Enterprise-D are present.

The novel doesn't offer any insight to the characters. And- most disappointingly- we learn absolutely nothing new about Klingons. In fact the

A few days ago, I posted a review of a Star Wars novel that discussed how far computer/video games have come in recent years, so, even though Klingon is reportedly based on a CD-ROM, I won't get into all that again. What I will say is that Klingon was a well-written "Star Trek" novel, which is to be expected from the husband/wife writing team of Kristine Kathryn Rusch and Dean Wesley Smith. However, I'm not 100% sure that such a story would make a good computer game. True, the book had an engagi ...more

This is a book that is also a PC game. Here's what I did and you may find equally enjoyable. The PC game is an interactive movie basically where choices are given to u that decide the story. You play as Pok a young Klingon. It is described as a holodeck program to train you in the klingon way. The book takes the game and tells its story through Gowron (klingon on the cover). Gowron is on Ds9 for a treaty conference with picard and several other well known characters in TNG. The book flips ...more
