Klingons

I recently heard that there are klingons in the new movie, they don't show them in the trailer, but would their presence make the movie better?

Re: Klingons

Apparently they...


(*Spoiler Ahead*)















Capture and imprison Nero after he travels back to the 2230s, meaning we get to see "smooth-head era" Klingons in a pre-TOS timeframe. The question will be...how many will have smooth heads and how many will sport ridges?

Re: Klingons

Klingons always make a movie better.

But then, I'm speaking primarily as a DS9 fan. So there you go.

Re: Klingons



Here they are, with their ridiculous S&M masks that could've come out of a TNG episode.

And the masks hint that we'll be getting at least SOME ridged warriors in this movie even if the timeframe in which Nero is captured and imprisoned happens during the pre-TOS "smoothie era."

I don't know, they may still be ''ridgeless'' And the hellmets they have on cover that fact up!? I mean a Klingon's head is TOUGH enough as ''is'' I dont see why they would need to have masks in the first place?

Well, only if they take a couple of Cardassian ships with 'em and go out in a blaze of glory. You know...die in glorious battle and all that.

But hey...thanks to Martok, I'll always have a place in my heart for the Klingons. Maybe I should have phrased it differently: Martok always makes a movie (or episode, or show, for that matter) better.

I agree Martok is an honourable Klingon, I really liked the part in DS9, when worf killed gowron, making Martok the chancellor.

I keep getting told that the smooth canon will be respected in this timeframe and we'll see the results of the Levodian flu virus mutation/Augment DNA from the Archer era carry over into this movie...but then I see costumes like this and it makes me wonder how many Klingons will be the ones most people WANT to see(ridged, more alien and badass). Abrams appears to be making this movie to appeal to the most people possible, after all.

That I do agree with! If only they made a DS9 movie, oh well.

There's always hope of fan films with Nana Visitor, Cirroc Lofton and/or others participating...or straight-to-DVD or Internet projects.

Hmmm....

"Any suggestions, Admiral?"
"Prayer, Mr. Saavik; Klingons don't take prisoners."

I guess they kept him so they can coax the secrets of his ship out of him?

Perception and reality aren't always one, nor should we assume when a character speaks they are delivering an objective truth rather then an opinion.

We've seen Klingon's take prisoners/hostages before to reach an end Star Trek III.
