Most Star Trek fans will know the long, tumultuous history of the Klingon “look”. Since their first appearance in TOS to Star Trek Into Darkness, this race of warriors has had their facial designs, wardrobe and even their teeth tweaked many times over the years.
While they didn’t play a large, effective role in Star Trek Into Darkness, it’s comforting for the fanboy to understand that the production design team took great care in bringing these characters back to life on the big screen. Hopefully, in future Star Trek films, we’ll seem more of the Klingon / Federation War and eventual peace within this alternate timeline.
Below, we have some early tests for JJ Abrams’ Star Trek Into Darkness. You can see influences from each generation of design.
