One, he has a ponytail thing behind his head. Two, that man is more uniquely Klingon than many of the other warrior self-parodies of the week that claim the name.

I knew I should have left the "5" on the end instead of putting the 6 there. I figured I was wrong and that Worf and Jadzia didn't start getting things rolling until early Season 6, but I twas wrong about being wrong, and that was wrong.

The uniforms really gives it away. It was halfway through season 5 that they switched to the gray-shoulder uniforms from First Contact, which they wore throughout all season 6. Picture shows Worf and Jadzia in a relationship and has them wearing the uniforms with department colour on the shoulders is clearly season 5.

I was super happy with the Klingons, obviously affected by the virus. Not dissimilar to the style if VI. Excellent.

Ethnic subset. No biggie, IMO.

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

The character who speaks looks exactly like a Klingon with no hair - just a vastly improved and heightened makeup design.

He doesn't look a thing like Kryten, other than being bald.

I hope that they ditch the hair from here on out - this looks better.

Some of the ones still in the helmets appeared to have hair. I'm guessing the Hair Club for Klingons doesn't have honor.

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

I think you are missing the point. This new reboot is Star Trek reimagined. They are not going to make every thing as it was. They are going to mix a little bit of old with a little bit of new. I think the movie gets bad reviews from "fans" because of ideas like this. The movie is NOT wrath of kahn. It is NOT ST TOS, it is not TNG. It is JJ's star trek.

Most fans don't seem to have problems with it. It seems more of the issues crop up among Trek purists, or as I like to call them, people who think Star Trek isn't what it was because what it was isn't what they think it is.

These Klingons looked bad-ass, not just some hairy biker dudes. I wouldn't want to mess with these guys.

I agree, they had a fearsome look to them.

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

They had a pants-shittingly terrifying look to them. I wouldn't want to mess with these guys in the light of day surrounded by a dozen troops, let alone in a back alley.

I object to the premise. They looked like badass, regular Klingons.
