Trek has always indulged in a casual kind of racial stereotyping with its aliens. Early on I think it was a matter of being able to afford only a few makeup and costuming cues to indicate difference from human beings. Over time, as the Franchise gave up all pretense of treating alien species as other than representing human national/ethnic differences the whole "they all look alike/dress alike/act alike" thing got really annoying.
"They laugh alike, they walk alike, at times they even talk alike. You can lose your mind. When Klingons are two of a kind."

These Klingons are the coolest yet. With all the different versions seen on all the different shows and movies, it creates a more realistic diversity in the species. It's SERENDIPITY people!
