    Or they're like the Reavers from Serenity.

    The Klingons are probably in some places where the Federation and the Romulans used to be.

    Since time was very different there in DIS (though apparently normal in TNG), Tenavik could still be there XD

    Qo'noS is the cultural and political capital of the Federation. A centre of learning and diplomacy and the ideal of all Federation member planets.

    They don't want the Discovery crew to know, because the Discovery era was a dark age in early Klingon-Federation relations.

    Picard had both types, one of each were staying at his house. I think it referred to the ridged ones as Northern Romulans.

    We really get the full spread, with some Romulans apparently compensating for their embarrassing lack of ridges by applying tattoos. What we're missing so far is a Vulcan who would sport ridges while admitting to no Romulan blood... Possibly the original rift back in the days of Surak was more about the ridges than about logic vs. emotion?

    They were all wiped out in the great Tribble War of 2765.

    They are too ashamed of DIS track record with Klingons to include them

    Looks like we won't see the Klingons this season. Weren't they supposed to be V'Draysh or something?

    We don't know who the V'Draysh were beyond possibly being the Federation.

    Disappointed we didn't get to see the Klingons. Glad we got to revisit something else though.

    Isn't that a little premature? There are three episodes left after the current 2-parter.


    Yes, in both its uses it appeared to be a corruption of the name "Federation" used by humans unaffiliated with it or in conflict with it. I did something similar in my first Trek novel, Ex Machina -- the people of Yonada called people from the Federation "Fedraysha" as the approximation of the name in their language's phonetics. (I suppose that's why I immediately recognized it in "Calypso," because I'd done almost the same thing.)

    I reckon they're saving them for season 4, and they'll all be peace loving monks now or something silly like that.

    Future Ferengi are gonna be fun too.

    No, that was the name for the Federation in "Calypso".

    Anyone else kind of hope they do a MAJOR redesign of the Klingons just to troll the Discophobes? :lol:

    What I really want/need is some mention of the Dominion. With the Federation in tatters, surely that would have been a huge opportunity for the Dominion to muscle back in? It makes me sad that CBS Trek has given DS9 such short shrift while celebrating Voyager so much.
