...favouring Robin Curtis over Kirstie Alley and disliking 24th century Klingons.
I did'nt think Kirstie suited those ears as well as Robin.
I've been watching DS9 recently, on some level the Klingons are a little one-track minded, but not unrealistic in my opinion, I know some battle re-enactors who follow the 'way of the warrior' and they have do go on about their honour as well. They can't have got it from star trek (except unconsciously as none of them like sci fi).
I prefer the later Klingons to the early, they just seem more believable. Someone mentioned about 'moustache twirling bad-guys' but as far as I remember of TOS, scraggily beards were all in vogue (Shaggy from Scooby-doo anyone)?
