Question about [a planet] in Into Darkness (SPOILERS).

I wouldn't really count this as a spoiler, since it's just a question about looks.

My question is, does the surface of Qo'noS look like how it did on TNG/DS9? Was just wondering. Thanks.

Re: Question about [a planet] in Into Darkness (SPOILERS).

I don't know that we ever saw the surface in TNG/DS9 to compare, did we?

There was "Sins of the Father," but that was the First City. What we see in STiD is specifically described as being an uninhabited wilderness, not a city, so it wouldn't be the same anyway.

Oh...and apperantly when new timelines are created, then the correct spelling of stuff changes to. It was "Kronos" on screen ;-)

Just the same, I concealed the name in the title and spoiler tagged it for people who have been avoiding the trailers and other info.

That's neither a new thing or a mistake, though.

Qo'noS (transliterated to Kronos in English)

The Klingon homeworld remained canonically unnamed until Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, in which it was identified as "Kronos", spelled that way in the film's script. The spelling "Kronos" was also used in most of the scripts of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episodes. It was also used in the script of the Star Trek: Enterprise episode "Broken Bow". According to the pronunciation guide in the script of DS9: "Tears of the Prophets", KRO-nos is the phonetic spelling of "Kronos".

"Chronos" was a more rare alternative spelling used in the scripts of only two Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episodes, "Once More Unto the Breach" and "Extreme Measures" The spelling "Kronos" was however identified as the correct one, when it was seen on screen in Star Trek Into Darkness.

Hard to tell because we only saw a region of the planet (namely Ketha province, home of Martok) up close that we haven't seen before. It did look sufficiently Klingon to me, though.

Re: Question about [a planet] in Into Darkness (SPOILERS).

I always thought that after TUC it was a different Kronos? Or was that a fan thing?

Re: Question about [a planet] in Into Darkness (SPOILERS).

That was a fan thing or a book thing. In Star Trek VI there is some talk about a possible evacuation of the Klingon homeworld but it was never mentioned again. In TNG some parts of the capital are supposed to be very old so it doesn't seem likely it's a newly settled planet.

Re: Question about [a planet] in Into Darkness (SPOILERS).

We saw that a fragmented moon had impacted Kronos. With that in mind, it looked to me like the surface had been devastated. Maybe the mining accident from Star Trek VI came early in this timeline and the empire is in a bit of trouble.

Re: Question about [a planet] in Into Darkness (SPOILERS).

I wonder if Nero destroyed Praxis with a frakton of cluster missiles on his way out of Klingon space?

Kronos did appear to be mid-apocalypse when Kirk and co. came to get Khan, with the ash raining down.

Re: Question about [a planet] in Into Darkness (SPOILERS).

Are we of the consensus that the fractured moon likely was Praxis?

I don't recall there being any other moons nearby and I don't know if their world has multiple moons.

Re: Question about [a planet] in Into Darkness (SPOILERS).

I took it as being Praxis.
As for Kronos, it looked like the Klingon homeworld to me.

Re: Question about [a planet] in Into Darkness (SPOILERS).

If you read through the blacked out (redacted) text in the "leaked" Harrison bulletin there a reference to a "Praxxis Project" there is an extra "x" in the name but it seems Section 31 may have sent Harrison out to do something to cause Praxis to explode earlier than in the main timeline.

Me too. The resemblance can't be accidental. It's early for it to look that way but, really, I don't care.

Re: Question about [a planet] in Into Darkness (SPOILERS).

I don't recall seeing a clear shot of the 'homeworld', just the scenes inside those ruins[?] where the fight happened. I need to see it again.

On the Praxis sub-topic, that blown out planetiod instantly reminded me of this
