Star Trek: Discovery, the latest addition to the Star Trek universe, warps onto our screens in September and it seems the more fans see the more they dislike. First up the idea that the first officer, not the captain, is gonna be the centre of the show rankled some fans. Up next was the design of the USS Discovery, which caused some sections of hardcore fans to go into complete meltdown. The release of the ship design was closely followed by the reveal of how the Klingon’s look on the show and to say fans weren’t pleased is an understatement.
As can be seen in the image at the top of this article, The Klingon’s look nothing like the Klingon’s we have come to know and love/hate. Now before you jump into the comments and argue that the Klingon’s in Enterprise didn’t look like the “traditional” war mongering, honour bound enemy of the federation that fact was addressed in the show and has now been accepted as canon. That could well be the case here but after show runner Aaron Harberts spoke to Entertainment Weekly that doesn’t look so likely.
When asked how the Klingon’s can be so different to anything we have seen before, considering that Discovery is set between Enterprise and the original series, Harberts responded with:
“In the different versions of Trek, the Klingon’s have never been completely consistent […] We will introduce several different houses with different styles. Hopefully, fans will become more invested in the characters than worried about the redesign.”
So there you have it! Stuff your canon and your arguments, your gonna love the characters not what they look like…….Apparently
