What Do the ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ Klingons Look Like?

Star Trek into Darkness klingon
Paramount Pictures

J.J. Abrams filmed a scene for 2009′s ‘Star Trek’ that featured Klingons but the scene was eventually cut from the movie. While Abrams has been cagey about Khan, he’s always been up front that there would – finally – be Klingons in ‘Star Trek Into Darkness.’ Up until now, we’ve only seen a fleeting glimpse of what a J.J. Abrams Klingon looked like with its helmet on. But today we get our first look at the ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ Klingons without their masks. And the verdict is?

Abrams has said that you won’t need to know much about ‘Star Trek’ history or Klingons to understand ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ but that hardcore Trekkies will notice a difference in the Klingons in this movie. “Their role in this is definitely adversarial,” explains Abrams refusing to elaborate as he does so often.

But in a new featurette, we get to see at least one way the ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ Klingons are different: their look.

If you blink, you might miss it, but in a brief feature on Uhura is about a half-second glimpse of a Klingon sans-helmet. And because we’re quick with the screengrabbing, we caught it for you.

We ran this by our resident ‘Star Trek’ expert Jordan Hoffman who had this to say: “Ahhh! It looks…different? What’s with the lips? And what’s with the earrings? I have never seen a Klingon with earrings. A bandolier, yes, but an earring, no. It looks a little more like the Klingons from ‘Star Trek: The Motion Picture’ than the Klingons we’ve come to know from ‘The Next Generation’ or ‘Deep Space Nine.’ Klingon Empire insignia is legit though.”

We’ve included a screenshot of the Klingon in question plus the original video where we captured it. What do you think? Let us know in the comments below!
