Latest Star Trek: Discovery Trailer Previews a New Look for the Klingon (VIDEO)
The heroes in the various incarnations of Star Trek have all had their fair share of enemy factions, from the Romulan Empire to the Borg Collective and the Tribbles, but none have come close to the classic Klingons who have been ever-present since the original series in the 1960s. This alien race has had some slight variations in their looks across each TV and film series, but their conflict with Starfleet remained the same. Now, a new Star Trek: Discovery trailer has arrived, which gives a quick peek at the latest look for the Klingons in the new series:
A new Star Trek: Discovery promo has been released, as seen above from the Nacíon Trek YouTube channel, focusing on the new series’ Klingon leader T’Kuvma played by Chris Obi. The new promo is narrated by Obi as T’Kuvma, and has close-up shots of various parts of his body and weaponry before revealing his face. While some aspects of the new physical appearance for the Klingons, such as the skin tone and facial structure are different, the classic forehead ridges are still intact. It also seems that the race’s war against Starfleet continues to prevail, according to his line from the Discovery trailer:
They are coming. Atom by atom they will silence us. Cell by cell our souls will become theirs. We must fight for one thing above all – to remain Klingon.”
Could this refer to a new version of the virus from Star Trek: Enterprise, which gave human elements to the Klingons, or could this refer to something different and new? The new series will reveal this as it starts streaming on CBS All Access on September 24th, 2017. What do you guys think about the new Star Trek Discovery trailer? Let us know in the comments below!
