Star Trek DS9 Harbinger: Video Captures, Page One

TREKCORE > GAMING > HARBINGER > Video Captures, Page One

Star Trek Deep Space Nine Harbinger was the first DS9 game created for the PC and Mac. It is one of Star Trek's few multimedia adventure titles and features some of the best dialog, voice acting, and plot you'll ever find in a Trek game! The purpose of this collection is to expose Harbinger to a whole new audience in recognition of its tenth anniversary. Please note that this first page covers the beginning of Harbinger in great detail, and these videos allow you to fully explore this part of the game without revealing any major spoilers. For the rest of the game, please see the link at the bottom of this page. DS9 Harbinger and its "Holosuite Missions" demo CD can still be found on eBay, and actually playing the game is still recommended.

All of the following video files use the DivX codec (v5.0.5) with MP3 audio in an AVI wrapper. If you experience problems playing these videos then you may have to download DivX version 5.0.5 HERE (Linux) or the newest version from Except for the opening movie files, all videos are 480x360 in size. We recommend you start with the introductory teaser/OCS ("Harbinger1") and then move on to either the combo file ("Harbinger_ActOne") or the video right below it ("Harbinger2_Beginning").

For optimal viewing, treat these videos as you would a movie being watched on your computer: Turn your speaker volume up to a comfortably loud level, so you can hear as much as possible, and remove sources of light from behind and around the video to improve contrast; an open, mostly light-colored browser or file window as the background would not be a good idea, nor would a physical room window letting in a lot of ambient light.

Enjoy! To save a file to your computer, right click on the link and select "Save Target As..."
