Star Trek: The Next Generation - A Klingon Challenge

A card from the game
A Klingon Challenge is an interactive video boardgame published by Decipher in 1993. The players try to stop a Klingon destroying the Enterprise D.

On the included VHS tape, Robert O'Reilly played the Klingon Kavok, who prompts the players to perform actions to impede the players. Only one card has a Klingon word on it: the card bIj (punish), which usually causes problems to the player. Kavok appears once in a while on the video and speaks a few klingon words.

Spoken Klingon

The pronunciation of the Klingon is very bad. It is easy to see that Robert O'Reilly didn't receive coaching by Okrand like he did for the language lab on the klingon Klingon CD, because there he pronounces everything correctly.

A cooperation with Marc Okrand is not known. In the video Ronald D. Moore and Dave Rossi are given credit as "Klingon language advisors".
