One of the most exciting destinations for San Diego Comic Con fans this year is the Star Trek: Discovery exhibit.
The Michael J. Wolf Fine Art Gallery has a display of costumes and props from the new series in the legendary sci-fi franchise.
One of the most talked about points of the show is its new take on the Klingons.
Discovery has changed the look and backstory on the most famous aliens in the franchise. Showrunner Aaron Roberts told Entertainment Weekly the changes were made so viewers could get invested in the Klingons.
“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.”
Roberts also stated that original showrunner Bryan Fuller helped design the new look.
Whether they like the idea or not (and most longtime fans don’t), the exhibit gives them an up close look at the new costumes and props Klingons will be sporting.
Note: The photo captions were taken from the description that accompanied the piece.
Star Trek: Discovery airs Sept. 24 on CBS before moving to the network’s streaming platform CBS All Access. The show’s first eight episodes will air in the fall, followed by the rest of the season in 2018.
Do the new look Klingons make you more or less excited for Star Trek: Discovery?
