What's this game all about?

Harbinger is a first-person adventure game, with some action elements, which takes place on Deep Space Nine. We take control of Envoy Bannik, a young Tirrion envoy of the elite Federation Diplomatic Corps, in training to be an ambassador. We arrive at the station during a turbulent time, in a tumultuous way, and it can only go downhill from there. This game plays like your typical first-person adventure. The graphics are very lovely and detailed but unfortunately, there isn't a whole lot to interactive with. Five of the main cast members lend their excellent voice acting to this game, but we do miss out on cameos from some sublime characters. The technical reasons for the lack of the main cast are down to the time and cost of using "pre-rendered" images. There is an in-game explanation that ties into the plot, I won't spoil anything in the OP.

This game was developed in 1995 and released in March 1996. Memory Alpha confirms that the game is set between the third and fourth seasons: "The stardate given by Envoy Bannik, combined with Sisko's rank of captain with his goatee and unshaven head, firmly places the game between "The Adversary" and "The Way of the Warrior"."

This is another game from my youth that I played numerous times, but I always stopped and gave up at a certain point (If you have played this game you'll probably guess where.) I'll always have a fondness for this game, I'm still amazed that it even exists in the first place.

LP details

This will be a video LP in eleven parts. I'll be uploading a video once every three days. Usually, I record as I go but I've pre-recorded this LP due to the fact that my free time will be very limited for two or three weeks soon. I have made a few small faux-pas during commentary, I'll try and rectify them as I go along.

I aim to show off alternative dialogue and scenes in additional videos.

If you want to discuss or suggest anything that could be considered spoilers, please use the appropriate tags.
