Added DiffLines:

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: K'Mpec abruptly disappears without any explanation late in the academy segment of the game. Presumably he screwed up, got kicked out, and figured he was better-suited to politics than starship command, eventually leading to his becoming chancellor.

* EvilCannotComprehendGood: Played with, since from the player's standpoint it's the Federation which is "evil"; the reason why Jaghjech and K'Poraq mock K'Mpec's idea to use a hijacked Starfleet ship in a "trojan horse" tactic is because a Klingon starbase would not lower its shields in such a situation, therefore they don't believe a Federation one would either. If the strategy is carried out however, the battle station does lower its shields, with fatal consequences for them.



* ReassignedToAntarctica: After playing a key role in the civil war against Melkor, Torlek's star is rising pretty high. [[spoiler:Then Chang, still smarting over the fact that Torlek forced him to ally with Gorkon, blocked Torlek's promotion to the High Command, and Torlek spends the rest of his career commanding an exploration/survey fleet searching unclaimed and unused star systems for resources to replace those that were lost in the system that Melkor destroyed.]]

** Of course the station would lower it's shields. It's a ''Federation'' space station.

Added DiffLines:

* MilitaryAcademy: Half the game takes place at a n academy for prospective commanding officers that Chang founded. Success means instant promotion to Captain and one's own command. Failure means return to one's original posting, without any black marks on one's future prospects (one can always work up the ranks the hard way).

** But averted in some manners. Chang's curriculum clearly emphasizes that a warrior's pride should not be synonymous for foolhardiness - there is no shame in calling for help when facing a fight you can't win alone, and a warrior should be willing to come to the aid of a brother in arms who needs assistance.



* KlingonPromotion: Chang created the Academy to get around the consequences of this trope: invoking it too often results in ships being commanded by people skilled in dueling rather than shiphandling, so Chang created a school for advanced shiphandling skills to counter this problem. In the backstory, Poktarl got his first command this way.

* YouAreInCommandNow: Part of K'Mak's backstory. He was a junior officer who wound up in command after his ship took a direct hit to the bridge, killing all other officers present. He successfully fought the ship to a successful conclusion to the battle, and then surprised the Executive Officer when he got back from Engineering by turning over command without even attempting a KlingonPromotion.

* InsaneTrollLogic: Chang mocks the Klingon Empire's FantasticRacism (while engaging in a good deal of it himself) by stating that Captain Kirk is actually a Klingon. Becauee he's defeated the Klingons before, he can't possibly be "merely" human. He then gives a JustJoking defense and says humans used to be warriros but we fell from the path.

* PassedOverPromotion: Jaghjech barely graduated, and as such did not receive a particularly impressive command upon graduation. [[spoiler:He goes over to Melkor when Melkor promises to give him a squadron command.]]

* ForegoneConclusion: All of the game is building up to Chang's treason against Gorkon in ''Film/StarTrekVITheUndiscoveredCountry''.

* BigBad: Melkor takes up this role after his brother is killed.


Added DiffLines:

* DeliberateValuesDissonance: Chang gives us an explanation for why he hates the Federation and it amounts to the fact he loathes democracy, multiculturalism, and peace. He states a proper empire should be ruled from the top down and conquer their foes rather than reach accords with them.

Added DiffLines:

* RefugeInAudacity: Melkor, rather than seeking the Chancellorship of the Klingon Empire, decides to declare himself Emperor. While this seems like an insane political move to Chang, it frees him up from needing the support of the Klingon High Council and means he can rule directly if he defeats the Empire militarily.


Added DiffLines:

* WeAreStrugglingTogether: Chang and Gorkon can't agree on anything, which is why the Empire is badly divided against Melkor.
