    The Remans are more like orcs. Nothing like that with the DSC Klingons.

    Also, nothing DSC does takes away from DS9 or their Klingons. I would argue its additive.

    The Remans always seemed intentionally modeled on nosferatu to me.

    To me they feel Ork-ish. I'm not the only one too, alot of people online have made that same observation. It's not like I'm looking at a tree and seeing a bulldozer. But hey, what something looks like can be subjective and opinion based. Feel free to disagree. As for your second point - I can only hope you are right.

    I'm pretty sure Frakes said in an interview that Riker and Troi are no longer in Starfleet either.

    Which sucks. To better contrast with the starfleet-free Picard, Riker should still have been in there.

    One of the things "All Good Things" got right. In the future, almost everyone from the ENT-D crew had moved on from Starfleet except Riker, which felt totally in character.

    Retired Riker is a boring idea.

    There's literally zero chance they would have "redesigned" Worf.

    Just like they didn't put Kor in 90s Klingon makeup? Worf would look a little different even if they tried to do the same thing. If it were really 0 chance of putting Worf in some kind of compromise makeup, then they may consider it not worth putting him in at all.

    I knew some would bring up Kor. Completely different thing. Kor didn't have an established look across 282 episodes, so not really a fair comparison.

    There would be literally zero need to put him in "compromised" make-up. None. They wouldn't "not bother" with Worf over a make-up issue. Either they want the character or they don't, that wouldn't be a factor, just as Brent Spiner's advanced age wasn't a problem, either.

    Plus at that point in Trek history, the Movie/TNG Klingon design was still a retcon of the TOS design.

    Well they can still ask him kindly to talk to his old Captain. Not an order, but a personal request.

    Well if they didn't change him here with some photoshop, I doubt they'd do much in the actual show. They'd want him to be recognizable to the older fans they're trying to draw in with Picard. They won't change him to be unrecognizable.

    The Disco season 2 Klingons look essentially the same as TNG Klingons. It would be an easy update that everyone would recognize -- kinda like what they did with the TOS Enterprise.

    No. The second sentence of your post is false because the first part is true.

    My guess is the Enterprise was destroyed during Picard's rescue mission, taking everyone--except Picard-- with it. Think about it. The only returning characters we've seen so far were not aboard the Enterprise prior to this mission. Data was gone, Riker and Troi were off on the Titan, and Seven was dong her post-Voyager thing. Worf, Beverley and Geordi are dead, and Picard blames himself.

    I find it hard to believe they'd kill off all three of them, one of them sure, but I could see them wanting to keep at least most of the alive for appearances in future seasons.
    I think it's more or less confirmed at this point that it is Alison Pill as Dr. Agnes Jurati. She's an expert in positronics, so I'm assuming they're at a lab or something where she's been studying Data's remains.

    Unless.. a resurgence of the “augment virus” takes place, and now Worf just looks like Michael Dorn.

    I don't think I'd go that far, I could see someone higher up deciding that that they want all of the aliens, including the Klingons, to look the same across all of the shows no matter what era they're in, or what they looked like in the past.

    I don’t think they’d want him to be unrecognizable to older fans.

    It is the Klingon Empire, after all. There were likely many planets absorbed into the greater Empire over the centuries, so logically there would be several different species of Klingons. They don’t all have to look exactly alike.

    Exactly. Worf's been in more episodes of Star Trek than ANY character, they're not going to sacrifice that for a bit of minuscule continuity. Especially, as others pointed out, Discover S2 Klingons were well on their way to resembling the ones we know from the 24th Century shows.

    I don't put any stupid decision past the Hollywood suits, I could see them insisting on a consistent look across all the series. The suits wanted rock bands to perform on the NX-01 on a weekly basis back when Enterprise was on the air. Obviously it's not the same suits, but I've heard a lot of similar horror stories in interviews with TV writers and producers.
    I don't want it to happen, I just wouldn't put it past the people in charge to force them to do it.
    Do the heads of the streaming services take the same kind of control that network execs do, or are they more hands off?

    In this case, they are hands on. They have to be, as they are entering the streaming war as outsiders and underdogs.
