Re: Klingons in STID--why do they look like [SPOILERS]?

On a related note I found it interesting that the Praxis "incident" seems to have already happened in the Abramsverse.

Still like the look of the Klingons in STID!

Ugh.
Seriously, if I could burn the master film for that episode, I would be happy.

Re: Klingons in STID--why do they look like [SPOILERS]?

I saw that! I'm actually surprised somebody hasn't started a thread on the shattered remains of Praxis orbiting Qo'noS.

Unless that's a different moon. After all, in TUC Dmitri Valtane calls Praxis "a Klingon moon" before Sulu goes into detail about how it's a key energy production facility.

Re: Klingons in STID--why do they look like [SPOILERS]?

I would say it's one of those "There if you get it, but doesn't have to be" references. I assumed it was Praxis. And it's not the only TUC reference/nod in the film.

Re: Klingons in STID--why do they look like [SPOILERS]?

The appearance looked similar to the Excelsior's long-range sensor image of Praxis from the Prime timeline. There were differences, but even Qo'noS itself hasn't been depicted in completely consistent terms since the very first time we saw it on TNG during the third season of the series.

I'm going with "that was Praxis" unless we read otherwise from the producers.

Re: Klingons in STID--why do they look like [SPOILERS]?

It looked like a real version of the computer enhanced graphic in TUC, to a tee. That's why it reminded me of that. Good homage, don't care if it is 'too soon' for that to have happened or not.

The Klingon's were fine, much better than I thought they'd be based on the screen cap.

Re: Klingons in STID--why do they look like [SPOILERS]?

The probably began overmining Praxis earlier because of Nero and Starfleet's buildup.

I liked this movie so much I really don't care whether they're consistent with much of the previous timeline or visual continuity at all. Let these guys do what they want as long as they stay entertaining.

No.

Heck, even an official explanation in a press release as to why the Klingons look as they do would be nice. It wouldn't have to be explained on screen. A documentary on the evolution of the appearance of Klingons would be sweet.
The first three are different actors but are understood to be the same person, the 4th is because of a bigger budget and perhaps Starfleet spent more on ships in the alt. timeline because of Nero's attack, the 5th one makes no sense at all and the last one is because the Kahless that Kirk etc. saw was his idea of what he would have looked like, not what Kahless actually did look like.
Surely this comes under bigger budget too? It's why the Klingons were given bumpy heads in the first place.

I thought the film was pretty meh, typical Hollywood action film, no brain required... but I completely agree with you 100%.

Re: Klingons in STID--why do they look like [SPOILERS]?

Meh. Most films of any genre don't require a lot of brainpower to get through, great story or not. It doesn't matter. What matters is that it's smart enough and is engaging for the audience.

Re: Klingons in STID--why do they look like [SPOILERS]?

The less harsh and more plush-looking uniforms remind me a little of the ones sported by many of the Klingons in TUC and some of the warriors depicted in Enterprise.
