Honestly, I would have thought the Klingons would have been more recognizable and the ones with more merit to be called Trek's "defining villains" and STID should have been about them.
The Klingons were overused villains in the TOS movies. For most people that watched them, they were nothing special. Khan's rivalry with Kirk was more memorable.
My point is, walk up to random John Everyman or Average Joe on the street and ask them who the bad guys in Star Trek are. I'm sure more will say "the Klingons" then will say "Khan."
You know aome people say that VOY killed off the Borg as mysterious villains.
TNG killed the Klingons off as villains. They're now our 'friends'. Our allies, frat boys.
I know nuTrek is set before that happens but the Klingons that are so well known by Average Joe will be the 'friendly' TNG/DS9 Klingons not Kor or Colonel Chang.
