I do notice that everyone who keeps putting the Klingon "steriod" ridge explanation as Enterprise's fault shouls remember that this was initially brought up in "canon" on DS9 in "Trials & Tribulations" when Worf said "it is a long story".
I think ENT did a great job of completing that story. I was always hoping that it would get explained at some point. So if the ENT bashers want to use that, then maybe you should direct your hostility towards DS9....they started it (nah nah nah nah nah nah).
As a fan on ENT, I will say not in defense of its story, but rather objectively that if the issue was never brought up in DS9 (even if it was meant to be solely for purposes of comic relief), most Trek fans would have simply disregarded ridgeless Klingons of the TOS era as a byproduct of a low production budget and not needed any further explanation. Since DS9 brought it up and ENT later became a series, the issue needed to be resolved, whether you like ENT or not (since it is a canonical Trek TV series). I, like many others, agree that the story and explanation on the "Affliction"/"Divergence" arc was fantastic and explained the continuity gaps as best could be done onscreen.
