The uniforms actually seem almost Cardassian to me.

Just a diffrent Klingon look. It not like it has not been establsihed that Klingon looks differ as much a how dogs differ.

I posted this in another thread:

The Klingons should have subdued ridges during this time period, as per their dealings with Eugenics DNA manipulation, during TOS they didn't have ridges at all, but slowly gained them back. So, I would have preferred that the ridges be more subdued than they were here, but still, they aren't as ridgy as we see in TNG, so overall not overly disappointed. Just think they should have been even more a bit smoother.

Also, it makes perfect sense that they'd wear helmets, I think the Klingons were pretty embarrassed at first when they lost their ridges, wearing helmets to cover this disgrace makes sense, so I liked the fact they were wearing helmets.
Agreed.

My only complaint about the Klingons is we did not see enough of them.
This!

Not quite on topic, but no other good thread for this. I enjoyed the little nod to Martok with the Ketha Province.
Me too! When they said it was unihabited I knew something was up because that's where Martok is from.

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.
Exactly.

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

The uniforms seen in the battle in the Ketha Province do look sort of Cardassian in a way. Hadn't noticed that at first.

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

Didn't we discuss the new Klingon look in another thread? Well here is my post from there. Dare to compare the Klingons through the ages to the ones in Into Darkness.

Starting canonically with ENT
Klaang


Antaak

Antaak Ridgless


TOS

Kor


Koloth


Korax


Kras


Krell


Kang


Kruge


Chang


Azetbur


TNG-DS9-VOY

Worf and the Klingons behind him


K'Ehleyr: Half Human


B'Elanna: Half Human


B'Etor and Lursa



Abrams Star Trek





With what we've seen before, I see nothing wrong with JJ's interpretation of Klingons. Creative liberty aside, JJ has stayed true to what defines Klingons in the fans eyes.

Let's hope we see a lot more Klingons in the next one.

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

The main difference is an extra "ridge", somewhat diamond shaped that the top ridge sits on, and it looks almost like one piece...the eyes were a great touch. This is my favorite look for the Klingons..they're more menacing here than ever.

The Klingons have never looked more like bad ass mother fuckers than they did in STiD. Those guys would make the TOS to TNG era Klingons take humongous shits in their leather pants as they collectively cried out for their mommies.

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

I still think the K'tinga battle cruiser crews destroyed by V'Ger are the creepiest Klingons ever, but these new ones are pretty close.

Were my son and I the only ones hoping against hope that when the lead Klingon removed his helmet it was going to be Micheal Dorn as Colonel Worf?

Indeed.

Agreed. That was always my favorite look. They seemed really alien in a way that Christopher Lloyd with ridges did not.

I actually wouldn't mind if Abrams would make the Klingons even more severe, some like Fek'lar from TNG's "Devil's Due."
