You two are spot on.
I know....I was as shocked as you were.
Ostensibly. Kelvin's alternate universe does allow for Nero to look different as well as negating what transpired in NEM to lots of possible degrees, so I'm not expecting stern continuity to NEM either. Which is also the best or lots of possible reasons... Where they go from here is more important.
Thank the 90s fans for wanting an explanation to TOS vs 80s movie/TNG Klingon look too. More money to pay for latex and sticky note glue instead of boot polish... Where they go from here is more important. Silly 25% claim or otherwise, though I'd hope for the claim because Enterprise uniforms in DSC were laughably bad with that disjointed if not schizoid-looking collar...
And it'd be fun to pop more than one. Oh, that's Pringles, not Ruffles...
The effects, for the smallscreen are anything but shoddy. I sat through enough of the show to tell that nobody needed to look up producer count* to tell those scripts were uneven at best, utterly careless at worst, and condescending at times in between. Shows ostensibly about hope in the future should be better than some scenes without compellingly good reason...
* with two hands and feet and more if co- and exec- and consulting- and other splinter producer roles are included
What, no one mentioned this? Want some ST09 style romulans? Shave heads and add tattoos, everybody wins
Yeah, the first two or three years of TNG were pretty ridiculous, on screen and behind the scenes.
Those are really the only Romulans I want.
I would think that the Romulans would have some genetic diversity.
Some Ridged Forehead, some Ridgeless, etc.
As an evolutionary feature all adaptions would serve a purpose, even if the purpose was in the species evolutionary past. Perhaps the ridges developed to keep the rain out of their eyes?
All Vulcanoids have an auxiliary forehead that is activated in times of stress. Romulans are very stressed.
These types of Romulans need to come with Harley-Davidsons.
They seem more like the fullsized pick up type.
They also have bigge brows
If we see Remans, will anybody care whether they look like the ones from NEM? Or is there more wiggle room since we didn't see a ton of them to begin with?
Plenty of wiggle room for me.
I wish they would tone down their nosferatunesh a bit, they look like season one Discovery Klingons! Whilst it was not stated on screen, I understand that the idea was that they're mutated Romulans. In theory I like that background, but it would work better if they wouldn't so radically different from Romulans.
We also saw a couple in ENT, though they were just background extras
Separate names with a comma.
