Already sort of happened with the Gorn.
Which doesn't make it right. Really, if you're just going to change a race to such a radical degree, why not just create an enitrely new race? "Pakled" doesn't really carry any actual name recognition in Star Trek anyway.
It might not be right in your eyes but it is the future.
There are three defining characteristics of the Pakleds:
1) They look like Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum
2) They steal things
3) WE ARE NOT SMART

They're comic relief. I don't see how you can possibly make them "badass," and reconcile that with what we already know.

The way the Gorn appear onscreen has changed, but that's due to improved animation effects. The nature of the Gorn, the way the Gorn appear in-universe, have not changed.
