Re: Uhura - A message from Harrison & first look at Klingon with no he
Like previous post-TMP Klingon designs, it stays true to what came before while giving it a fresh slant. Although it's starting to look like there's a pattern of familiar Trek aliens becoming bald in the Abramsverse.
Also neat that they kept the classic Klingon trefoil insignia.
And before anyone asks, there's no continuity error here. ENT: "Divergence" established that only a percentage of the Klingon population lost their ridges to the Augment virus. Indeed, I'm wondering if they later adopted the masks as a way of equalizing the two types of Klingon, so that one couldn't tell whether another Klingon was ridged or not.
