Re: Season 2 Klingons

I understand the practical reasons for a fanflim to have a recurring character moreso than a prefessional TV series like Star Trek.

The problem with the 2nd season Klingons was the writing, not the actors.

Bah! You haven't really heard Conway Twitty, unless you've heard him in the original Klingon.
LOVE IT!! Glad I wasn't taking a drink when I read that. Well done!

Re: Season 2 Klingons

I've always liked the idea of the John Ford Janissary-style hybrid Klingons better than the "You have no honor" schtick TNG gave us, much less the augment virus idea (though I did like Brent Spiner's use there). The turning point was decided when they did the Albino thing, of course, so it was lost.

I never minded the Season 2 Klinks, though.

Yeah, this was about as low-grade as you could get.

Re: Season 2 Klingons

Can someone Photoshop an Amish straw hat and a pitchfork into that Tige Andrews image?

That would be perfect.

Extra credit (a pound of topaline ore) for inserting a stem into his mouth.

This was the point that Adam Greer decided that he couldn't pass as a young hippy a need to recruit a "mod squad" to go undercover.

Re: Season 2 Klingons

To be fair, they did make the Klingons a little swarthy in the second season. Just not as much as the first and third.

Re: Season 2 Klingons

According to one of those VHS intros done by the cast for UK VHS releases in the 90s Tigh Andrews (Bob the Discount Klingon, above) was supposed to be the Klingon in Tribbles but but was unavailable, which is why the role went to William Campbell. This may be apocryphal, but there you go.

^ Doesn't make sense. We saw Kras get killed by the Keel the Capellan in "Friday's Child".

Re: Season 2 Klingons

Time to drag out that old copy of Gerrold's book on the subject.

I don't remember any reference to Andrews...

They didn't say he was going to play Kras. They said he was going to play the character that ended up being Koloth.

Re: Season 2 Klingons

Those looking to take offense and act all high and mighty aside, I have enjoyed watching this discussion go down. And while I see the point made about "low grade" Klingons, for my money the worst of the worst was William Campbell....a MARVELOUS actor...improperly utilized and arguably miscast in his role as a Klingon.

He was BRILLIANT as Trelane...but as a low budget Klingon.....sorry.
