"(...) And though I had slain
A thousand foes less one
The thousandth knife found my liver;
The thousandth enemy said to me,
'Now you shall die, now none shall know.'
And the fool, looking down, believed this.
Not seeing, above his shoulder, the naked stars,
Each one remembering."

It is an ancient Klingon belief — the naked stars remember acts of courage performed under them. Find out why, and find out hundreds of other fascinating facts about the Klingon Empire in this expansion set for Star Trek: The Role Playing Game.

More than a supplement, this set provides not only a complete creation system for Klingon player characters, but complete technological, cultural and physiological background of Klingons and their society. Klingons are among the most fascinating of Star Trek's "villains." Now, they make fascinating player characters as well!

Ford (author of the upcoming Star Trek novel The Final Reflection)and Guy McLimore, Greg Poehlein, and David Tepool of Fantasimulation Associates (designers of Star Trek: The Role Playing Game), this expansion set extends the horizons of Star Trek and serves as your official guide to the vast Klingon Empire.

Included are a complete rules and background sourcebook and a Klingon adventure. Even if you don't play Klingon characters, you'll want this material for your Star Fleet-based campaigning. Star Trek enthusiasts everywhere will want access to these never-before-revealed secrets of the Klingon Empire.

"Intrusion" Cover

While patrolling an area near the Romulan/Klingon border, the player's D-7 battlecruiser enters orbit around a previously uncharted planet. Investigation shows a small Romulan landing party which had apparently been deposited for a survey mission. With an unparalleled stroke of luck, the Klingon crew manages to capture all five of the Romulans for later interrogation. Subsequent sensor scans show no other activity on the planet, nor any Romulan ships nearby. As the hour is late, the five Romulans are placed in separate cells in the cellblock. Guards are placed, and the ship settles down into third-shift routine, with most top officers on sleep period.

However, things are not quite as they seem. The five Romulans are, in reality, highly trained centurions. At an opportune moment, one of the Romulans manages to catch one of the guards unaware, and kills him quickly and silently. Relieving the dead guard of his electronic key and his disruptor, the Romulan quickly frees his five companions. Together they dispatch the other guard on duty (with the same efficiency) and quickly locate four more disrupters. Realizing that the security office is probably being watched, they move off in the other direction, soon coming to the Elevator Repair Facility. A plan begins to develop in the mind of the Romulan commander...

FROM: Imperial High Command
Area KZL-1456
Admiral Klen zantai-Rvellin
Bureau of Agricolony Security


Your vessel is hereby ordered to divert immediately to Imperial Agricolony LGXT-455M (native nomenclature: Delleren V) and investigate Imperial Security reports of native unrest. Vessel's commander will inform local Governor that a routine spot inspection is being made. In actuality, though the pretense of a spot agricultural inspection is to be maintained, commander or representatives of ship security are to meet with Imperial Security agent Avarn vestai-Levest, operating undercover.

Agent will seek out commander or security personnel in capital city marketplace 1030 hours second day of visit, with usual identification papers. Investigate agent's claims clandestinely, and — if situation warrants — replace local Governor as temporary Military Governor, act to preserve order, and report situation. Further orders will then be issued.

Commander is advised to protect the interests of the Empire in this matter, proceeding with discretion and decisiveness. Discussion of current situation with top officers left to discretion of commander.
