Today's share day is for the Star Trek fans. (You don't have to be a fan to share) Here we go, I just read that there will be Klingons in the new Star Trek Movie. So today let's talk Klingon.(Not in Klingon, because most of you know I have a hard enough time with English) What do you really think happen to the Klingons of the original show? I think that they were genetically altered Klingons, made to look more human in order to infiltrate the Federation. As you know, it didn't work. They were then sent to another planet to live out their lives as outcast, because they failed. This planet was later destroyed to forever hide the truth. Sounds good to me, does anyone else have any idea what happen to them?

The Secret Lair
Didn’t they all land jobs @ Comicon sighning autographs? They could have also started a death metal band since they sing all throaty. I think the Klingons need a press agent! I think they should they got hurled into the Star Wars universe and became the Sand People, but that will not happen.
Waen’t that all explained during that terrible prequel show with the qyantum leaper?
@Skybandit: Yes, it was “explained” during the prequel show Enterprise. As I remember, it was some king of genetic experiment that was eventually terminated. The fact that during the entire run of TNG (The Next Generation) and DS9 (Deep Space 9) it was not mentioned, except as a joke (even during the time traveling episode) is a little weird. There is, however, another sequence of episodes in DS9 where 3 Klingon captains (Kang, Kor and Koloth from the original series) appear WITH the “new look”. That at least gives us an idea of what happened to them. They all became Klingons of the “knoby headed” variety.
Now I could sit here and write paragraph after paragraph on Trek, but I’ll stop here… For now 😉 If any1 has any Trek questions please send them my way and I’ll endeavor to answer them.

@HK: Were you trying to bait me with this topic? 😀 😛
I might have to check out the Enterprise where they explain the genetically-altered Klingons. Not really into Star Trek, I always thought that Enterprise was AFTER ST: TNG!
@The Atomic Punk: Chronologically within the ST universe it would be, Enterprise, Original Series, Cartoon Series, Next Generation, Deep Space 9 and Voyager, with some overlap of the last 3.
Chronologically within OUR timeline, Enterprise was the last one to be produced.
I have been a life long Trek fan, and the theory that has been written about that always made since to me is that the Klingons from the TOS were actually a seperate ruling class of Kligons, while the more familiar Klingons from TNG on were a lower class that rose up and took control sometime after.
Worf, I thought the correct answer from you was, “We do not discuss it with outsiders.” 😀
Worf, I would of never guessed you were a Star Trek fan. lol Thanks for clearing that up for us. I started watching Enterprise a few times but stopped because of the time it was on didn’t work with my job. Now that I have Netfixs and I am retired I’ll have to try it again.
The official explanation (in the show’s 4th and final season) was this: the appearance change resulted from an attempt at Khan-style genetic engineering, which failed. In fact, it backfired, creating an rapidly-spreading disease whose “cure” left them more human-looking. Worse still, it was hereditary, although Dr. Phlox held out hope (presumably fulfilled some time before the Kirk-era movies) that it could be reversed someday.
I succession of 4th-season episodes details it all. First, a 3-parter dealing with the escape of the genetically engineered (“Borderland,” “Cold Station 12,” “The Augments”), and then a 2-parter dealing with the Klingon reaction to the incident (“Affliction,” “Divergence”).
That should get you started. These eps are really quite informative about the Klingon’s changing appearances, their hostility to the Federation, and even the origins of Cmdr. Data!
