as part of our little anniversary celebration (or evisceration) of star trek into darkness, i’ve been thinking about those klingons. i think the scene they're showcased in is the best sequence in the movie and the costumes, helmets, makeup and yeah even the piercings make the klingons look pretty badass: neville page designed them as well as the klingons in star trek: discovery. they share a lot of traits, but the disco klingon is obviously more extreme, with elongated heads, extra nostrils and all sorts of other flourishes. the into darkness klingons are more restrained. page did design even more ambitious klingons for into darkness before pulling it back to something simpler and easier to accomplish with prosthetics: funnily enough, even the more ambitious klingon still isn't as extreme as the discovery version. so what are your thoughts and preferences? i remember folks being upset by the portrayal of the klingons in the kelvin timeline, but in hindsight, they were pretty conservative compared to what we have now on CBS all access.
