    They just need to send in Khan to deal with the Klingons; he made mince-meat out of them single-handedly.

    Again with the Klingons. They were overexposed in the original universe.

    Do something with the Romulans instead and tie it to the mess Vulcans have been left in.

    No more freakishly large super-villain ships.

    Something that completely casts doubt over that having been Khan in the last film... but that's not going to happen.

    A Vulcan conspiracy to retaliate against the Romulans... With red matter or something.
    Use Klingons as co-conspirators.

    I know something like this was done in the comics, but who cares.

    We are set up for Klingons buuuuuuut...why not have the Federation and Klingons have a few spats over territory where each thinks the other is decimating colony worlds only to find out that it is the Borg. An alliance is formed and we have a nice blockbuster type battle at the end where we get to fight beside the Klingons and witness the blossoming alliance that always seems to be underlying between the two Alpha Quadrant powers.

    I know, right? Can you imagine the Borg injecting something under the skin to alter someone's appearance, or assimilating someone with a tattoo, or wearing headgear, or being into piercing body parts at all? As if!

    No, your post just didn't make any sense.

    Sorry, that was a typo. I meant to say that they weren't EXCLUSIVE to TNG. They popped up briefly in DS9, they were in Voyager, and I believe that they were also in Enterprise (I didn't watch much of that).

    It's a joke, dude.

    And I understood your post just fine. You're complaining about how the Klingons were adorned with piercings and helmets and how the Romulans had facial tattoos, and then extending that to any possible future Abramsverse appearances of the Borg. Your post wasn't exactly the Enigma Code. Hell, it wasn't even the da Vinci Code.

    I just found it somewhat amusing that the things you would object to have sort of already been covered by the Borg in the past, with a little creative license.

    Also, the Romulans in Star Trek XI were much different from Romulans that we've seen before. They were miners, not soldiers or politicians, and the tattoos were explained in the Countdown comic book. Who cares if the Klingons has piercings, they're a warrior culture. Plenty of warrior cultures have piercings, its not that hard to believe.

    To be perfectly honest, I'm actually surprised that JJ Klingons are the first ones we've ever seen with piercings. It's a natural adornment for, as you say, a Warrior Culture.

    I was thinking that too when I rewatched the movie. About time the Klingons actually looked like warriors. The new Klingons look like primitive warriors; asskicking mofos that just happen to have access to starships. Not the sort I'd want to run into on the battlefield.

    I kinda do like your idea though.

    Kind of a new Kittomer...

    Feel free to justify it to yourself anyway you want.

    I don't care for either.

    I like the Klingons minus the piercings.

    As far as the Romulans, did the countdown comics before the movie came our depict Nero with tats?

    Yes. The comics actually explain the tattoos. They were from ancient traditions where the Romulans would adorn themselves with a mark that would fade to symbolise the passing of grief. They made sure theirs would not fade, though, because Romulus was destroyed, and all that remained was vengeance.


    As far as Klingons with piercings. I don't see the issue. It was one Klingon. It doesn't mean they all look exactly like him. Let's not turn this into another case of bowl cuts ala Spock and the Vulcans.



    As far as The Borg? Eh... No, thanks. If they're gonna use something from Trek i'd prefer they stick to pulling things out of TOS to play with. Things we haven't seen a lot of since TOS.
