So the New Klingons

Will we get the new klingons from Discovery as a character creation option? we sort of got one from the Into Darkness klingons. I know alot of people hate the new klingons and i can understand why. I personally like them except for their outfits but i like diversity and the klingons need more customization options.

    Not for a while I imagine. Maybe the appereance thing will be explained maybe it will not. The devs arent putting out any DSC related stuff beside uniform that have been revealed for a very long time.

    False. They actually have some Discovery related content in development right now.

    Did you get the head pointy on the back? As for the Uniform try the Xindi Reptilian from the Lobi store to help complete the look.

    Wait. Why aren't you asking the guy who claimed they WON'T be releasing Discovery content "for a very long time" for his source? He is the first guy in this thread to make any kind of "claim" one way or the other, so I think he needs to "put up" before anyone else.

    Well, during the Ten Forward Livestream about the new colony holding, Borticus said they weren't planning on any Discovery stuff yet.

    They'll do TRIBBLE stuff just for the fact that that means they don't have to design ships or etc. People being lazy is a good bet to take. ;)

    They should update the Klingons to the new design, both player and NPC.

    i expected as such, it's a little too early for Discovery content at this point. See what happens in a few months from now when more episodes have aired.

    That won't be a popular choice if Cryptic did that. Making it an addition to the typical Klingon appearance would do.

    When I first saw the nu "Klingons" I Thought to myself cool new alien species. Then I heard them and realized what they were supposed to be. They look to me like a Xindi Reptilian cross breed with an Uruk'hai. I think I will call them Xin'hai.

    As for making them the default? I would delete my Klingons immediately. Probably keep my alien KDFs but thats it.

    "Why would anyone pierce their forehead ridges if they contain extra-sensory receptors?"

    I hope the author of that article realizes that:

    * They walk through a line of Klingons with pain sticks getting zapped as a right of passage to adulthood.
    * Their mating habits tend to require a visit to the medical bay afterwards for dislocated appendages.
    * Their bachelor parties are basically heat exhaustion and starvation.

    Do they really have to ask why a race would pierce after seeing their culture like that?

    Also Discovery Klingons? #NotMyKlingons

    I don't think there's any prospect that Cryptic will force players to adopt any Discovery add-ons in STO.

    Based on your avatar, which I found later to be one of those so-called Klingons (like, seriously?!), I guess it could be possible since the looks already exist in the game...

    ...in the Na'kuhl assets folder.

    Seriously, this is a goddamn Na'kuhl, what was the character design department thinking?

    Because he said "The devs arent putting out any DSC related stuff beside uniform that have been revealed for a very long time.". He doesn't need a source to demonstrate what has not been revealed. I can see that it has not been revealed myself, as can everyone else. Therefore the notion that they are not working on something is much easier to believe.
    On the other hand, if something had been revealed, it would be evidence that they are working on something. Hence a source.

    And again, I meant no disrespect. If there is a source, I'd seriously like to read up on it.

    well, that would be ONE way to get a lot of people to delete their Klingons-unless it's purely an option. Some of us aren't fans of the arthritic, wheezing, awkward, slow-moving, inept, blundering, lizard-man-looking NuKlingons.
    Isn't that another way of saying "I like space orc barbarians"? :p

    You know, the ones that look (and act) more like fictional Bikers than fictional prison, aryan nations skinheads.

    Can't upvote this enough. They need to stop re-discovering things that are well known already. Galaxy is wide enough as it is.

    I kinda got the sense that the Discovery Klingon armor was mostly ceremonial, not practical. While it may not hold true for the entire Empire, this group felt more religious than those we saw in the past.

    And the look... I feel that not all Klingons were affected by the Augment Virus. We could very well see the more human looking ones at some point as well as more traditional and some of these new ones. Maybe they were affected by environment. We don't entirely know if this is supposed to represent the entire species or one particular, older branch.
