I can relate, I can't understand it sometimes. I could understand it was Klingon, but it was a little deep and hard to understand.. I like it over the annoying Starfleet one though.

oh boy, I have yet to use sound, it is not necessary, i always understood that there was no sound in space so why use it? on the other hand, keeping the sound turned off lets me be in space without waking my 2 year old daughter.

The Klingon computer reminds me too much of CABAL. It doesn't really feel Klingon at all.

I'm not sure we ever heard a Klingon computer say anything in any Star Trek episode. I'd actually rather prefer to hear the voice sound like a living Klingon bridge officer is the one giving status reports because of that. And even if I'm wrong I still think that would be a better idea.

They should also throw in some broken Klingon with the various warnings.

Well ... no!

Insted we got an evil robot voice telling us ... something? Definetly not Klingon, maybe it is Borg? (definetly not sweedish)

I honestly do not like the new voice. I would like to know where to switch over to the old one, or better yet, just turn the whole damn thing off! (Would it have been to much work to get a proper (female) klingon voice?)




P.S. Thanks for the exploration missions, finaly something to do, yay!
Sounds like someone stuck in slow motion to me.

What cryptic should have done was made the voice a Moody Klingon female that would swear at you in klingon when your shields failed.

You know, I don't recall the computers on Klingon ships saying much of anything in any of the episodes or films. It seems as though Klingon shipboard computers are meant to be seen, not heard. Alternately, if they're deceptively intelligent as Starfleet machines sometimes seem to be, maybe they've figured out that it's in their best interests to be quiet. (Imagines frustrated Klingons shooting consoles in response to being told that which they'd rather not hear by their computers.)

Giving them the option of setting their computers text notification only modes, or simply turning it off altogether, might be more realistic.

hahaha. yeah. I have a liberated borg Klingon and I kept on thinking to myself "Why would I be talking to myself saying that there ar issues going on".

Now i realize it is the "klingon voice". And that is hilarious.

Getting Michael Dorn to do some Klingon voiceovers would truly be awesome. I mean, he just did some voiceovers for Bioware, so it'd certainly be possible. Why not reconnect with the franchise that made him the man he is?

Although I would also approve of this:

I think you are spot on!

Something like:
"Qua'pla, we have engaged in battle!"
"Those taHqeqs have brought our shields down!"
"*Growl* ... Our hull is below 50%!"


P.S. ArlanKels, thank you!

To quote Scotty recently.

"I like it, this ship is exciting!"

Granted the computer would not actually speak klingon ( although that would be kewl )

" So'wI vIchu'ta!!"
