Re: Did Klingon culture become too stereotyped by the end of DS9?

The depiction of the Klingons in ALL of the later Trek series is so far from the original idea of them (I believe from Gene Coon). The description of the Klingons from TMOST:

"The number one adversary of the Federation is the Klingon Empire. More powerful than the Romulans, the Klingons are less admirable characters. Their only rule in life is that rules are made to be broken by skrewdness, deceit, or power. Cruelty is something admirable; honor is a despicable trait."

Interesting that most of those traits eventually were given the the Feringi race.

Alien strength has been so inconsistent in Trek. I cringed when Archer punched out Vulcans in Enterprise, and cheered when someone remembered that Romulans should be as strong as Vulcans in STXI.
Archer also got his ass handed to him by a Vulcan in Fusion. I think he simply caught the one off-guard in The Andorian Incident.

Re: Did Klingon culture become too stereotyped by the end of DS9?

Have a watch of some of General Chang's briefings, from Star Trek: Klingon Academy:

General Chang talk's about the Federation's political system

General Chang explains how to drive a wedge between Federation members


General Chang explains tradition, family, lineage, mean nothing in his academy

That game did more to make the Klingon's look rational and clever than all of DS9.

That still is a very good game, too bad i can't play it anymore on my PC.
I also never understood why there never was a sequel, something about the TNG era Klingons or the romulans.
