    Ohhhh noooooo!!!! :drama: :weep:

    Come on, that's nothing. :rolleyes:
    That's a tweak.

    Do I need to show the comparison between the original TNG Trill and Dax again?

    It was unnecessary.

    You cited PIC, there's lots of him there.

    Hey, at least he's giving his opinion for a change rather than linking to Youtube.

    Baby steps, D.

    Of course there is. I'm among them, and I'm enjoying DISCO and think PIC is among the finest Trek ever made.

    And if Worf appears you’re fine if they drastically redesign the makeup to fit the look of the DSC Klingons you’re fine with that?

    They've pretty much painted themselves into a corner, so they'll have to find some compromise. I'm not over the moon with the original choice at the beginning of DISCO, but I do get why they tried it, and it's miles away from pissing me off in any substantial way.

    *Worf comes out as an an Imperial Klingon. Fangs, wide nose, weird irises, the whole deal*

    Worf- *Speaks untranslated Klingon through his fangs*

    *Q appears*

    Q- Whoops, forgot to put that back!

    Worf- *Turns back to regular Worf speaking English*

    Q- Left over ripples from the Q civil war. Pay it no mind. In fact...

    *Little Q flashes on everyone's foreheads erasing everyone's memory*
    *Q leaves*

    Star Trek: Online currently has a thing where the time-displaced sister of T'Kuvma and the grandfather of Gowron are up against Martok. They don't look terrible altogether.

    And their updated Worf model looks more or less the same.

    I have a head canon that explains it if they would simply ask me.

    Klingons are constantly fucking with genetic manipulation to try to fix the augmentation thing we saw in Enterprise and in the process they have ended up creating a number of offshoots which are constantly churning through who's at the top of the heap, plus at a given time an individual can mutate from one to the other (i.e. TOS smoothies later seen as ridgiees) either as part of their characteristics or via individual manipulations.

    Supposition is that either the Disco sort fell out of power by TOS or they are the "elites" still and the smoothies are the rank and file military sorts... at least until TUC

    All sorts of suppositions but the point is, don't look at the augment experiments in ENT as a one off but the beginning of a generations long obsession with genetic manipulation that had varying degrees of success.

    All of this would be so much easier if they didn't have to make a point out of saying that the holo conference at the very beginning of DISCO spsnned all the factions. Then the other factions could yet have looked different.

    Well, the leadership of every faction looked a certain way. I imagine the leaders of every Earth country in 1901 weren't necessarily representative of their people either. :async:

    Federal Freshman's bullshit aside, I dunno how many new fans it *could* pull when all three series are so heavily steeped in canon history. Theoretically, I suppose one could jump into DIS without knowing much on TOS, but.... :shrug: I wouldn't be surprised if there were more fans brought in from the Kelvinverse films tbh.

    All that said, trying to cater to only the 90s TNG fans is what killed this franchise the first time. Kurtzman was wise to shake things up and bring the show into the 21st century.
