    I thought the film was pretty meh, typical Hollywood action film, no brain required... but I completely agree with you 100%.

    Meh. Most films of any genre don't require a lot of brainpower to get through, great story or not. It doesn't matter. What matters is that it's smart enough and is engaging for the audience.

    The less harsh and more plush-looking uniforms remind me a little of the ones sported by many of the Klingons in TUC and some of the warriors depicted in Enterprise.

    The uniforms actually seem almost Cardassian to me.

    Just a diffrent Klingon look. It not like it has not been establsihed that Klingon looks differ as much a how dogs differ.

    Agreed.

    This!

    Me too! When they said it was unihabited I knew something was up because that's where Martok is from.

    Exactly.

    The uniforms seen in the battle in the Ketha Province do look sort of Cardassian in a way. Hadn't noticed that at first.

    Didn't we discuss the new Klingon look in another thread? Well here is my post from there. Dare to compare the Klingons through the ages to the ones in Into Darkness.

    Let's hope we see a lot more Klingons in the next one.

    The main difference is an extra "ridge", somewhat diamond shaped that the top ridge sits on, and it looks almost like one piece...the eyes were a great touch. This is my favorite look for the Klingons..they're more menacing here than ever.

    The Klingons have never looked more like bad ass mother fuckers than they did in STiD. Those guys would make the TOS to TNG era Klingons take humongous shits in their leather pants as they collectively cried out for their mommies.

    I still think the K'tinga battle cruiser crews destroyed by V'Ger are the creepiest Klingons ever, but these new ones are pretty close.

    Were my son and I the only ones hoping against hope that when the lead Klingon removed his helmet it was going to be Micheal Dorn as Colonel Worf?

    Indeed.

    I thought they looked cool, especially loved the eyes.

    Agreed. That was always my favorite look. They seemed really alien in a way that Christopher Lloyd with ridges did not.

    I actually wouldn't mind if Abrams would make the Klingons even more severe, some like Fek'lar from TNG's "Devil's Due."
