    I think the explanation might be that its just how Klingons look now, that the Kelvin-verse changes are changing everything because the Klingons existed before the new timeline formed so in actuality there should be no reason they look different. Kinda like if they wanted George Kirk to appear in Discovery he would still be Chris Hemsworth or Pike would still be Bruce Greenwood. They are supposed to be the same characters as the original and thus should "look" the same as their Kelvin-verse counterparts. It would be weird but imagine they had Spock appear but it was Quinto but he acted and wore the clothes of Nimoy's.

    I think that a good portion of older fans of Star Trek were wanting and expecting something more along the lines of Axanar, which is kind of why Axanar was made. It was solely for the fans. Discovery appears to be geared more toward drawing in new audiences, rather than making the old timers happy. Being one of the old timers, I can understand the decision, but it will certainly affect how much I'll enjoy the series, if at all. Here's hoping that they'll throw in just enough consistency to make it's position in the Prime Timeline "believable". :)

    Personally, I'm hoping that it's a time travel thing and they're actually from the 2390's or later; only they're stuck in the 2250's. ;)

    Yeah, that's the only way that slick ship and uniforms makes any sense.

    I wish I liked what I'm seeing in this trailer...but it's just not doing it for me. Are there any "real" Trek people working on this show? Writers, directors, producers? Like Berman, or Frakes, or Ronald Moore?

    I'm still sad that they killed Enterprise right when it was hitting it's stride....:(

    But I get it, we just simply can't have a show like Star Trek anymore, no one would watch it.
    And those Klingons...

    The original show runner Bryan Fuller mapped out the story (not sure if he wrote scripts), he got his start writing on DS9 and Voyager.
    I agree 100% Enterprise was only getting better before it got the axe. This new series is supposed to be an anthology (every year is a different story and cast) so lets hope they revive Enterprise and let it have a proper ending.

    As much as I am skeptical I thought the trailer was pretty decent and I'm actually more interested than I was before.

    Yeah. The guy in gold kinda reminds me of Apophis from Stargate SG-1. :)
