Its a small village the Aegean coast.
Even Google didn't like that.
Take that Google!!!
If Google can be trusted "Andient" is a German word. "Andient is an inflected form of andienen"
It is a German word, yes, but not in common use anymore. In fact I have never encountered it before and had to look it up in a dictionary just now.
sigh. I'm sorry. I've really been trying. Honestly, I have. But these KINO's (Klingons In Name Only) are a deal-breaker for me. I hate them. Utterly. To the point of not bothering to try to watch the show. I hates 'em even more than I hates SID's "Blingons". sigh. Once again, I am everything that is "wrong" with Trek fandom. You kids go on without me...
Did you dramatically announce your departure in 1979, too?
He sent a letter.
The story context might help.
im not a fan of the new Klingons either, but an explanation seems likely with the "sarcophagus" ship that we have known about for months. I think it would be awesome if we saw a fleet of straight up no-ridge TOS klingons occupy the ships we didn't see and the redesign are for the sarcophogas ship.
I think it's funny he made a big deal to trek fans but framed it like he was talking to CBS executives. Delusions of grandeur...
There's no need for this. Please stick to criticizing the content of people's posts instead of making ad hominem attacks.
I was just saying that I want to like Discovery, that I was going to make every effort to embrace it, but Klingons are a centrally iconic element of Trek and I, personally, can't accept that radical a change to an established and central part of the franchise. Yeah, 1979 was a bit rough, but I was younger then and there was less Trek to be had anywhere so I adjusted. Eventually. I'm not knocking anyone who likes or doesn't care overly much about the design. I certainly don't have "delusions of grandeur" (hmm if I could just get Tin-Plated and up that grandeur to "delusions of godhood" I'd be back in canon territory...)
The original poster asked for this specific opinion. Since I am used to getting bashed every time I express a dislike of where Trek has gone of late, I "framed" the comment as a slightly sardonic bit of self-deprecating confession.
Humor. It is a difficult concept..
Actually, I am really hoping that something like this turns out to be the case. That would have me back onboard in an instant and enthusiastic. I just don't think it seems very likely, give the comments that have been made about redesigning familiar races and such. But I will keep an eye on developments, just in case.
The DSC Klingons are closer to the TMP+ Klingons than the TMP+ Klingons are to TOS. I can easily see them as part of post TOS "evolution" of the Klingons, so I'm having a hard time parsing what's so "radical" about this iteration.
In text form, yes.
The comments don't mean there can't be an explanation for the redesign.
I will say this minor redesign I find acceptable, but if this doesn't have an explanation it would be a huge letdown for me. But The last three trek movies show that a letdown for me is irrelevant to its success.
Klingon Reavers perhaps. Flying that old boat without core containment might explain their look.
