What's is this?
This is an interactive FMV game set in the Star Trek universe. It plays almost exactly like Star Trek: Klingon. We watch a variety of cutscenes and within each one we need to make a correct choice to advance the game further. There are no Klingons or Holodecks in this game. But we do have a new host, one that you will probably recognise:
We play as Qaylan, our father died in battle and Q gives us a unique opportunity to relive and possibly change the outcome of what happened. John de Lancie reprises his role as Q for this game. For anyone who doesn't know who he is, I will copy and paste this entry from Wikipedia:
He is an extra-dimensional being of unknown origin who possesses immeasurable power over normal human notions of time, space, the laws of physics, and reality itself, being capable of altering it to his whim. Despite his vast knowledge and experience spanning untold eons (and much to the exasperation of the object(s) of his obsession), he is not above practical jokes for his own personal amusement, for a Machiavellian and manipulative purpose, or to prove a point. He is said to be almost omnipotent, and he is continually evasive regarding his true motivations.
How does it play?
This is an interactive movie, we watch one or more cutscenes in each scenario and are presented with a choice to make. Only one choice in each scenario is correct, each scenario contains at least one or more wrong choices. If you make a wrong choice a variety of things can happen, either the scene resets, we get chastised for making the wrong choice, or the game ends in some situations. Not making a choice is also a valid option in some of the scenarios.
This will play out pretty much exactly like Klingon. This LP will only contain two videos of the main playthrough as without commentary, this game is less than forty-five minutes long. There will be three additional videos to go along with this LP.
There are plenty of wrong choices to be made. Some follow alternate pathways which ultimately lead to dead ends, some of the wrong choices are the only way to find the answers to several of the puzzles and some of the wrong choices are there for amusement. There are a lot of wrong choices, I have separated them into two videos to accompany each part of this LP.
In this game, Q gives us a special tricorder which enables us to pause a scenario and gather pieces of information. This function is the only way to solve several scenarios within the game, there are plenty of other things that have tricorder entries too. I'll be compiling them all into one video at some point.
