Re: Klingons in STID--why do they look like [SPOILERS]?
I have to admit, the 2009 design that was kept under the helmets and never seen was a little better. That said, both are great tributes to and interpretations of the look we've been used to since 1979 and I'd have enjoyed seeing either one in the newest film.
Human instinct is pretty strong. You can't expect us to change overnight.
