Star Trek: Klingon Academy is a simulation game, published by Interplay Entertainment in 2000. You play from the perspective of Torlek, a cadet of General Chang's elite command academy. You follow him as he makes his way through trial after trial. He eventually catches the interest of Chang himself, who recruits him to help in discovering the nature of a growing insurgency in the Klingon Empire.

Setting and StoryEdit

This game occurs just before the first Khitomer Accords as shown in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. General Chang is but Brigadier Kerla's predecessor, as Military Advisor to Gorkon's predecessor in the Chancellery. He also doubles as the lead instructor in the Klingon Defense Forces Elite Command Academy. Gorkon himself is but Chang's predecessor, as Chief of Staff.

The story starts with an attempted coup against then-Chancellor Lorak, who is gravely ill. In a heated battle above the Klingon homeworld itself, General Chang foils this attempt.

The game is divided into two campaigns. The first is but a simulated campaign in the Academy: a hypothetical war with the Federation. Starting with a blitzkrieg, the war shifts deeper into Federation space, as you are to exploit the weaknesses inherent in the Federation's greatest strength – diplomacy – which renders the enemy "a brittle unity" in Chang's eyes. The war ends on Earth's doorstep, as the Federation's response to the diversionary blitzkrieg and to its diplomatic weakness leads to conflict within the Sol system itself – and the unleashing of one of humanity's "greatest scientific achievements" (Project Genesis) of mass destruction on Earth itself.

During breaks from the Academy, you are called to spy on treasonous elements in the Klingon Empire, elements with ties to the recent coup attempt against the Chancellor.

Upon graduation (a great honor, given the atrocious failure rate), Lorak dies, and the worst civil war in the history of the Empire – none other before or after as devastating (including the 2368 war that saw Gowron's ascendancy) – ensues, with radical ramifications to come...
