Are Klingons Making a Comback?

Burger King Klingons

With filming just weeks away, new rumors are starting to surface regarding J.J. Abrams’ upcoming Star Trek sequel. Early rumors claimed the film would focus more on crew itself rather than pitting them against as single adversary, while others seemed to suggest that the Kirk and company could match wits with a classic villain like Harry Mudd or Trelane. Sources recently claimed that Abrams had approached Benicio Del Toro to fill that void, but we’ve yet to hear anything further regarding his involvement, if it’s indeed happening. This latest rumor, however, seems to suggest that we might even see the return of the Klingons.

If you recall, they were originally part of the 2009 reboot, but were ultimately cut from the final film. A shame really, but it was probably for the best. The scenes they originally shot seemed a bit out of place and their inclusion might have ruined the film’s pacing. Those Klingon prison costumes also seemed kind of silly to me. If the Klingons end up making their official Abramsverse debut in the next film, I have to wonder if they’ll go through another redesign. I’m not even sure how they would improve on the last one.
