Yeah, I saw that on Trekmovie.

The Klingons look like a cross between TOS and the TMP version (rather than the entirely different post TMP dinner-plate sized bony-head Klingons), with the TOS side favored more.

Looks like the klingons have the same sort of "Alien Eyes" the Romulans had in the movie.

It also looks like the "masks" they wear hide their shame from the augment virus. Very exciting.

We don't know for sure what a helmet-less new-style Klingon would look like though - we've only got that one pic of the actor in partial make-up. Under the helmet, we can see a lot of heavy, layered skin with a more mottled complexion than the usual - kind of neat, and less human than previous versions.

Ah dammit, I didn't see this thread because I only looked for "makeup" and "aliens"...

Ok, we know that there are smooth and ridged Klingons. What we saw in the pic makes sense, we can assume the two kinds mate.

I'd like to see diveristy in the Klingons we see, that way they are not all so "cookie cutter."

And more implying of an "empire."

StarTrek empires only ever seem to contain the "mother race," I thought the existence of the Remens was one of the best things about Nemesis for this reason.

They spent all the money and effort on complex designs for background aliens and Klingons just get a nose and a tiny head piece?
Seems as if someone did not understand that humanoid TOS aliens only looked so human because they had no money.
