"300"-style Klingon Mythology Epic Movie?

Maybe a 1-off, just to do, the story of how Kahless came to power? I mean, if you're looking to do a cool sci-fi action popcorn blockbuster, wouldn't that be a logical way to do it? I mean, a Eugenics Wars mini-series or movie series would be pretty badass, too (an adaptation of Greg Cox's books would be f'n awesome if done right). But a Klingon Battle Epic?! I mean, short of getting carried away (which could be easy), what do you think?

In a few years fans will be able to do this on their laptop.

Re: "300"-style Klingon Mythology Epic Movie?

I guess so. I was thinking (since I live on freakin' Endor) that I could do a Kashyyyk or Endor based fan film, but that's playing for the other team, and I don't know if I like that idea.

Seems silly at best. Though non stop fan production fight scenes might make a good gag reel.

"Again with the Klingons."

A whole film about Klingon honour and battle would be really tedious I think, they've been overused.

I agree. The Klingons are two dimensional. They always remind me of Animal in the Muppets. It would be boring.

I'd rather watch a 300-style epic filled with Animal, at least I'd get a few giggles.

I think it would be a cool way to give Klingons some depth and show some understanding of their culture, why they turned out they way they did, maybe what they were like before they killed their Gods.

I would have the movie told as a story by an elder, an over the top 300 style epic action/adventure.

Re: "300"-style Klingon Mythology Epic Movie?

The visual style would be fine with me as long as it has real depth.

Re: "300"-style Klingon Mythology Epic Movie?

I always enjoyed the over the top style of all those Klingon mythical stories when the characters told them in TNG or DS9. A heavily stylized, R-rated fantasy epic about how the Klingons slayed their Gods and how Kahless came to power and all that would be pretty enjoyable.

Narrated by James Earl Jones.

Re: "300"-style Klingon Mythology Epic Movie?

It could be done. Many years ago in the early 80's, FASA (or perhaps it was John M. Ford in "The Final Reflection") came up with the concept of the Kinshaya (and apparently carried over into various Trek novels decades later), a warrior race that gave the Klingons a serious nosebleed for centuries, fighting to relative stalemate, but existing in an almost perpetual state of war. It would be interesting to see something like this (called something else, obviously) in a 300-style format.

Re: "300"-style Klingon Mythology Epic Movie?

A couple of potential problems if this is meant as a major motion picture--

Would enough of the general public be willing to go to such a film to justify the cost? Fans might go see it, but what about Joe Blow from Kokomo?

Your box office stars would be unrecognizable under the heavy makeup. Planet of the Apes pulled it off, but a human character was the focal point.
