My favorite version of the Klingons, thus far.
I was going to make the same point. And even now, even after Enterprise, I still like that idea. Although I imagine, if these are Klingons, It'll just be presented as a straight forward retcon, but there are some in-universe explanations for the new look. Either way, I kind of dig the design.
I'm a hardcore fan and I'm not annoyed one bit. Just because you do not like them, doesn't mean you can claim that other "hardcore fans" won't like them either.
Are we sure that they are supposed to be klingons and that the guy just didn't make a mistake in identifying them?
if they are klingons though...yeah not a fan of the look. I do remember something from that ds9/star trek crossover where Work mentioned something or other about the difference in klingons from Kirk's era to ds9 era, it could be related to that, been awhile since i watched that episode so i could be wrong.
Didn't the two different species idea kinda fly out the window when Kor, Kang and Koloth showed up on DS9?
Honestly, just the fact that Fuller made a comment that DSC was in the prime timeline and took place ten years before TOS was really rather stupid. All that did was make a small percentage of trufans happy and gave them unrealistic expectations that the show was going to look exactly like "The Cage," with silly '60's felt uniforms, beehive hairdos and Klingons that look like humans with oily skin and go-go boots.
In regards to Smoothies vs Knuckleheads, I always had the idea that maybe the smoothies were either cast out by Klingon society because they were considered to be impure or weak. On the other hand, I think they could also work to infiltrate Starfleet, or go undercover - like Darvin did in Trouble with Tribbles.
Either way, Klingons are Klingons to me. I like both versions of them and am totally fine with whichever depiction Discovery uses. As I've always said, I'm tuning in for good stories. That's my number one priority.
I know and they are VERY vocal about it........I mean maybe some "tip of the hat" type inspirations from that era but I don't know why anyone would actually think that they would make the sets and uniforms look like 1965 is just beyond me.
This is a modern Klingon redesign.
This is a modern Draconian redesign.
It's easy to get the two mixed up. (#NOT)
We really don't know WTF it is.........guys sitting around craft service table? Are they waiting on some hair? Who knows, but I'm worried about Andrew Mackay's job security after posting this!
I'm just wondering if these are "lost in time" Klingons from the Empire's distant past?
Don't know about "lost in time" but I'm definitely getting a Lost In Space vibe from them!
Cannot believe they cut that scene, Nero was a great character but he needed more to to his story.
Not in the Discovery Timeline.
We will get the remastered director cut in Ultra HD 4K HDR in 2021 with the missing scenes cut in
It appears this actually confirms this is a reimagining and not a reboot. Very happy about this. The more angry Trekkies the better. Shows they are on the right track.
You've kind of missed the point really. Oh well. I guess deflection means you really had nothing of value to say.
Robert fletcher's original Klingon uniform design for sttmp. Their look was meant to seem reptilian. Amazing how similar they are to the new ones. Also no hair.
I said my piece, and made my opinion clear. That;'s all I ever intended to do, and it had just as much "value" as anything anyone else has said.
