Favourite Klingon !!!

Who,s your favourite klingon in TOS?

Mine has to be Kang in the episode called Day Of The Dove . His character shows great strength and plotting and also i thought that he was a great nemesis and villain to put against Kirk pity they only locked arms in combat once in the series .

I also find that now i have come to like the TOS klingons .

Your thoughts who,s yours.?

Where's 'Bob the Klingon' (named Kras in a transcript I've seen) from Friday's Child?

How can he not be the favorite.

Well, for me it's a toss up between Krell and Kras.

No love for Korax?

Did that Klingon captain played by K.L. Smith ("Elaan of Troyius") ever get an off-screen name?

Can't you have ONE conversation without bringing up Drek09?

I vote for Kor. He was so sinister and slimy. Kang is a close second. I can barely tolerate Koloth--maybe if he'd been in something more dramatic.

I also got to meet John Colicos in person once a couple of years before he died. It was a treat and I got to shake his hand and get his autograph.

I voted Kor but I easily could have gone with Kang. Those two defined the Klingons almost as much as Spock and Sarek defined the Vulcans.

Re: Favourite Klingon !!!

In TOS it's Kang. He is the only one who acts like a Klingon should act. Later on it is Kor, he is the only one who acts like an old Klingon should act.

A Klingon as defined by what? They show distinctly different characters of a race. That makes the Klingons as a whole seem more complex. That's a good thing as opposed to being mostly the bikers of the galaxy as expressed throughout much of TNG, DS9 and ENT. And, yes, I know there were exceptions.

As an actual warrior with a sense of honor. Most other TOS Klingons, with the exception of Kor, were played as cowards and schemers. That might have been TOS's intentions, but I personally preferred them as a warrior race.
