William Shatner's Tekwar is a 1995 cyberpunk FPS set in the TekWar universe. It is notable for featuring footage of Shatner reviewing the player's mission performance via a selection of FMVs.

This game is one of the first licensed to use the Build engine, and as such uses an earlier version than Duke Nukem 3D.

The game's source code was made available in 2006 by a former developer.[1]
