    That's actually...brilliant. I'd love to see something along those lines!

    If the augment Klingons ever did show up, I imagine they'd have human shaped heads with very subtle ridges like the TUC Klingons or B'Elanna. This would be enough of a change from the DSC Klingons to clearly demonstrate that they've suffered as a result of the virus.

    Ah yes, time to bring in General Chang and Azetbur...

    Unironically, I would love to have young Chang in the show if the casting was perfect.

    On a rewatch of last week's episode, I noticed one of the Klingons is wearing a TMP/TNG-style uniform and squeed a little.

    Also the moustaches on the nu-nu-Klingons looked awful. The mohawk Klingon and Kol's dad looked awesome, though. And I loved L'Rell's... face tiara?

    Let's find a 20-something Christopher Plummer lookalike who can act and we have a deal

    Really? I missed that uniform! Do you have a screencap of that one?

    Can't get on Netflix at the mo cos it's being used twice elsewhere, but it's during the scene with the fake Ash/baby heads where L'Rell declares herself "Mother". It doesn't have a sash and the material is slightly different, but it's unmistakable.

    here's a group shot from "point of light" (btw, klingon on the left hand side is apparently house of mogh):

    Thanks! Yeah, that does look a lot like a TMP/TNG uniform only without the trimmings and the baldric. That's pretty close to what the Empire will begin using aboard its warships within the next fifteen years.

    Kor in TOS (and DS9) isn't necessarily the Kor that the house was originally named after. In the STDisco timeframe, ten years before TOS, Kor definitely wouldn't be a senior member of his house. Kol-sha was the head of the house at that time. And DS9 "Once More Unto the Breach" said that Kor was "the last son of the House of Kor."

    Klingons seem to repeat certain names in their lineages (some human families do this too, of course), such as Worf being a descendant of Colonel Worf. Another example would be the House of Duras, seen in TNG and ENT. Duras in TNG was named after his ancestor.

    I doubt that they would go to the trouble of naming a house after a prominent character and not have it be a reference to that character. Deep Space Nine established that Kor came from an aristocratic family, so that's another reason to believe that it's the same house.

    I do wonder about the actual family tree however. Kor is the son of Rynar. Perhaps Kol and Kol-sha are cousin and uncle respectively, running the day-to-day business at the house while Kor serves with the fleet.

    it's not a question of whether it's the same house is it? isn't it just speculation that kor is named after house kor rather than vice versa?

    Thats it! Just looks a little odd without a sash.

    startrek.com or somebody needs to run an article explaining the visual differences between houses, because it's clear the costumers and makeup team thought this out.

    so far i've picked up that:
    • house mo'kai wears red armor (see ujilli and the guards aboard l'rell's "prison ship" in "choose your pain"), plus scarification (l'rell didn't participate i guess)
    • house d'ghor wears green and gold (see dennas and her cronies in "lethe")
    • house kor wears TNG-ish armor (kol-sha and his guards wear similar costumes to what kol wore during season 1 in "point of light")
    • house t'kuvma and those pledged to him wore those godawful pointy outfits
    • house antaak was apparently distinguished by prominent chin ridges, but i'm unclear on what they wore...
    anybody else pick up any characteristics?

    T'Kuvma's group was made up of a bunch of Klingons from different houses, and some without houses.

    Remember L'Rell is Mo'kai. The Member of House Antaak they show was wearing a T'Kuvma uniform.
