I got in a minor debate with someone on Facebook about this last night. He sees this Klingon as being reptilian looking. I do not see it all. Than he admitted he could accept the rest its just eyes that really bother him.

Once again its goes to the human varieties. Maybe its because usually we have seen Klingons with dark eyes. So this seems different to some???
Let's remember that Roddenberry was glad to completely redesign the Klingons for TMP, and asked fans to accept that they'd really looked that way all along and the makeup on TOS just hadn't been up to depicting it. Just imagine how the fans in 1979 must've felt. It was an adjustment, but we got used to it. And this redesign is minor by comparison.
