How would you change or redeem them? If they would show up in the JJverse of course.

I would personally make the Pakled superstrong slave warriors of a more inteligent species, who are somewhat resistant against blasters like the Brikar. They would still be dumb but at least they would not be a bunch retards. They would have new more bada... look of course.
The Breen. The Breen are one of the most mysterious and apparently powerful of the Trek species that we know little about.

In terms of overall redemption - isn't it obvious, The Q

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

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.

Species that need redemption in the JJverse...
How about the symbiotic life-form (snot monster) from "Vox Sola"? Give it some actual lines, this time - maybe a little character arc.
As for literary criticism in general: I have long felt that any reviewer who expresses rage and loathing for a novel or a play or a poem is preposterous. He or she is like a person who has put on full armor and attacked a hot fudge sundae or a banana split. ~ Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.

Considering how much they look like cum a new look might not hurt.
