‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Showrunner On Why The Klingons Were Redesigned

Star Trek: Discovery
Star Trek: Discovery will be the latest entry in the science fiction franchise and the Klingons will be given a new look in the upcoming series. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, showrunner Aaron Harberts explained the reason behind the redesign of the classic Star Trek species.

Harberts explained that original showrunner Bryan Fuller was in favor of giving the Klingons a new look, adding that redesigning the Klingons is nothing new to the franchise:

“In the different versions of Trek, the Klingons 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.”

A new image featuring the Klingons was also released. You can check it out below!

Top 10 Movie Trailers From This Summer That Will Fire You Up

Previous1 of 11

TrailersEvery year, an avalanche of trailers, teasers, TV spots flood the Internet, trying to grab the attention of busy and overstimulated audiences. It’s gotten to the point where now, trailers are such a commodity, that the trailers themselves have teasers. There’s a reason: trailers, when they’re good, can be an artform all their own.

I love trailers, being the guy who is always rushing his friends and family to the theater early “so we don’t miss the previews.” Every summer, I make a YouTube playlist of my favorites that acts as my own personal radio station because frankly, sometimes, I vibe more to how the trailer is cut than the music in it or, in bad cases, the movies themselves when I finally catch them on-screen. It’s gotten to the point that I imagine and dream in a trailer format, with music setting the pace for a smash-cut of scenes that I want to write or just enjoy the fantasy of.

If you love a good trailer like I love a good trailer, this list is for you. Here’s what I consider the top 10 trailers for the summer 2017. Click Next to start!

    In other words.. “Just because!”

  • Huh…. Maybe Vulcans should also have extra brains hanging out the back of their heads like brain testicles… because they are all smart n stuff right?…. This seems a bit too much of a redesign considering how iconic their look has been in the last twenty years… Just do a different alien if you want to do something else?
