    Kol-Sha’s Hair and beard did remind me of DS9 Kor

    The video in Tuskin38's post above shows a side-by-side comparison. She no longer has the "Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" elongated cranium like in S1.

    Though some of the other Klingons in the episode still had longer skulls. L'rells was the most drastic change.

    ...And thankfully it was not quite given in "Point of Light". The quip about the hair, "postwar", could mean just about anything.

    They're basically the same set of Klingons, though - the ones associated with the crazy fanatic T'Kumva and his family. Perhaps crazy fanatics and their followers shave? Which basically just leaves Kol as suffering from unfortunate natural baldness, a fact that no doubt adds to his personality that last drop of utter disdain towards the rest of the world...

    But I really say fashion. Which, since this is the future, extends to skulls.

    What about all the representatives he talked to over the holocom? They were all bald, and they didn’t seem to like him very much.

    Could be because most of the Houses were fighting each other. The civil war might also be the reason why there is a orion embassy on Qo'NoS. There is no central government at the time of the war and the Orions are also dealing with weapons, the houses might by.

    Well in TNG we know that the Homeworld appears to be neutral ground. Remember during the Civil War the different factions were drinking with each other.

    Apparently it could have been the same way during "Will You Take My Hand". All kind of Klingons, belonging to different houses, drinking and amusing themselves together at the orion embassy.

    I've felt for awhile that baldness was more of a choice in Trek. just a look you go with. (except for one person. Captain Robau is too awesome for hair. It ignites from his aura as soon as a hair follicle attempts to spring forth.)

    Klingons from the war era are just trying to honor the image of the great and awesome Captain Robau

    The one Starfleet Captain to earn such awe and respect from the Klingons.

    Admiral Robau needs to show up on DSC. I'm just saying. You know I'm right.

    the fact that his name wasn't on Saru's list of greatest captain's was wrong. People complaining about a D7 with some extra gold leaf and rebar braised on for bling but Robau isn't on the captain's list.

    The query was actually "Greatest Captains other than Richard Robau who needs no introduction."

    But, I agree, it is a grave oversight. Hopefully Saru gets to meet Admiral Robau and make up for the exclusion.

    I just realized that the actor who played Robau also played the Ten Rings terrorist Raza in the first Iron Man movie.

    Yeeep. He also appeared in Alias and Lost, both JJ Abrams productions.

    Impossible! That would mean that Tony Stark defeated Robeau in battle - this CANNOT be true

    Well, Robau was defeated by Nero. The actor who played Nero once played the Hulk. Tony Stark defeated the Hulk in Age of Ultron. It still works.;)

    With Klingon politics obviously playing a role in Discovery, it would be interesting to see Kor (how odd that the House of Kor is seen and talked about so much, yet the man himself never shows up).

    I know Discovery has yet to mention the Augment Klingons, but L'Rell's situation does seem precarious and it strikes me only as a matter of time before her deception of the High Council is exposed when Ash/Voq and Voq Jr. are inevitably discovered to have survived (Section 31 themselves can use this info to blackmail L'Rell whenever they want). Voq Jr. will also then be set on his way to become the Albino from DS9.

    If Kor shows up leading a group of Augment Klingons with evidence of L'Rell's deception, he might lead a coup where the Augment Klingons are given a shot at leading the Klingon Empire. Especially if L'Rell's T'Kuvma policy of "Remain Klingon" ends so disastrously the Klingon populace might just be ok with letting a bunch of smooth-headed Klingons run the show. It would neatly tie into why all the Klingons in TOS were the Augment virus ones.
