    I wouldn't really count this as a spoiler, since it's just a question about looks.

    My question is, does the surface of Qo'noS look like how it did on TNG/DS9? Was just wondering. Thanks.

    I don't know that we ever saw the surface in TNG/DS9 to compare, did we?

    There was "Sins of the Father," but that was the First City. What we see in STiD is specifically described as being an uninhabited wilderness, not a city, so it wouldn't be the same anyway.

    Oh...and apperantly when new timelines are created, then the correct spelling of stuff changes to. It was "Kronos" on screen ;-)

    Just the same, I concealed the name in the title and spoiler tagged it for people who have been avoiding the trailers and other info.

    That's neither a new thing or a mistake, though.

    Hard to tell because we only saw a region of the planet (namely Ketha province, home of Martok) up close that we haven't seen before. It did look sufficiently Klingon to me, though.

    I always thought that after TUC it was a different Kronos? Or was that a fan thing?

    That was a fan thing or a book thing. In Star Trek VI there is some talk about a possible evacuation of the Klingon homeworld but it was never mentioned again. In TNG some parts of the capital are supposed to be very old so it doesn't seem likely it's a newly settled planet.

    We saw that a fragmented moon had impacted Kronos. With that in mind, it looked to me like the surface had been devastated. Maybe the mining accident from Star Trek VI came early in this timeline and the empire is in a bit of trouble.

    I wonder if Nero destroyed Praxis with a frakton of cluster missiles on his way out of Klingon space?

    Kronos did appear to be mid-apocalypse when Kirk and co. came to get Khan, with the ash raining down.

    Are we of the consensus that the fractured moon likely was Praxis?

    I don't recall there being any other moons nearby and I don't know if their world has multiple moons.

    I took it as being Praxis.
    As for Kronos, it looked like the Klingon homeworld to me.

    Me too. The resemblance can't be accidental. It's early for it to look that way but, really, I don't care.
