If they want to side-step the whole augment virus thing, fine, but the Klingons in the new movie don't resemble Klingons at all, from any movie or TV series. If it wasn't said that they were Klingons, I wouldn't have known that they were. Was there a period in Klingon history where a Volcano erupted on Qo'nos and the population was severely burned? Their heads have a cube-like shape and no ridges in this movie. What's up with that?

Um, they look like completely normal Klingons...

He doesn't look anything like a Klingon.

Looked like Klingons to me, if anything they look better on screen than the screenshot that was released before showed. The ridges look a little sharper and detailed and the head has a slight angle to it at certain spots. It makes it look less like a latex piece and more like an actual head.

He looks more like Darth Maul than a Klingon. The head has a cube-like shape, that thing running down the head doesn't resemble a ridge, the whole head looks like it was dunked in BBQ sauce and put on the grill and he doesn't have any hair.

That's what a Klingon should look like.

Did you actually watch the movie? There were ridges and anyone with functioning eyes could see them.

Yup, I saw it and my eyes work just fine. I enjoyed the film, but I just didn't think that he looked like a Klingon.

I wouldn't use Worf as an example. His makeup changed many times over the course of TNG, DS9 and the movies.

This doesn't even count the movies. So Worf's appearance is different, as is his appearance compared to the Klingons from the Trek movies.

In any case, none of them look like Kryten, so you are mistaken. The Klingons in STXII have clearly defined ridges. It was very easy to see in the movie.

Just do a search for bald Klingon...

Maybe we need someone to explain why Worf's ridges changed over time, perhaps because of some imuno-agumento-cyber-bio-skeletal-puncuto-flavo-virus... instead of just brush it off as a simple budget/make-up issue.

My point is simply that there is no such thing as a 100% standard Klingon, and that using one particular Klingon, like Worf, as the standard of an example, is a poor idea and easily dismissed as inaccurate.

They look like Klingons by way of Uruk-Hai.

Agreed.

Martok is the standard. All others are wannabes. :klingon:
