The K Word ?

Ok i didn't mean khan for the sequel i was thinking about those greatest arch villains the Klingons .?

I know that JJ left them on the cutting room floor but i would love to see them in the sequel.

But if you had choices to do something to make them different wot would you do .?

I thought of making them more physically larger may be taller than humans keeping there appearance very similarly to TOS klingons but with some physical appearance of the ridges maybe keeping the helmets we saw them in the first film .

It would make the fight scenes interesting . ?

Your thoughts people !!

What I'd really like to see from the Klingons is some sense that they really are the cunning, brutally effective warriors they are supposed to be, as opposed to the idiotic, metalheads/space pirates we've seen over the past 15 years or so. Fighting the Klingons should be terrifying.

The way the Klingons looked and felt in ST:TMP should be revived to a large extent. Make them scary looking again and give them the old TOS attitudes about wanting to take on the Federation and beat it in open warfare.

Re: The K Word ?

Honestly, I'm sick of Klingons. They were fine in TNG, were starting to get overused in DS9 once Worf became a crewmember, they went away for a bit in Voyager only to come back to annoy us at the end, and Enterprise used them way, way more than they ever needed to (I'm of the camp that they should never have been introduced in a FC type of situation in ENT at all).

Quite frankly, Star Trek '11 should just do away with a "baddie" altogether, and focus on a good story that doesn't need one. Star Trek IV was one of the most successful Trek films ever made (until Star Trek '09), and there wasn't any "baddie" in that movie (unless you count the whale probe, but I don't).

Re: The K Word ?

I'd love to see smart Klingons, as depicted in the old novels The Final Reflection or Pawns and Symbols. I far prefer both types to the "Hulk Smash!" TNG/DS9 versions.

I loved the helmet/trenchcoat look from the deleted scene (as well as the soft-spoken interrogator), but I'd put the important Klingons (i.e. not the grunts) in the Klingon gear from the Nero comic. It was a neat update of the TOS look with what seemed a hi-tech futuristic ultra-lightweight kevlar mesh instead of the (utterly useless) heavy armour from TMP onwards.

I'd like a mix of Klingon forehead looks (a few in TMP "spine" style, STVI, TNG/DS9 etc) as well as a few human-fusions. There would be no different treatment between the types of Klingons. I like the idea that that the Klingons treat all Klingon racial variants as equals (above all other aliens, of course). It sort-of applies Trek values to the bad guys too.

the klingons, being klingons, should be at war with the romulans in the next one, since a romulan ship destoyed 47 klingon ships. and of course I want them to kill a young version of carol marcus.

Re: The K Word ?

Again with the Klingons!

They have been used way, way too much already. Let them be. When you think about it, in the original TOS, there were only about a half dozen or so episodes that had Klingons. There must be many other interesting races and characters to serve as antagonists for the Enterprise crew.

If they want to reuse a heavy from the series, how about Dr. Sevrin or Harry Mudd?

"MMMMUUUUUUUUUDD!"
