Warp Five 15: Klingons Don't Do Pretty / by Trek fm

Klingons on Enterprise.

They're the best-known villains in Star Trek, born of The Original Series and appearing in every series and every film. Yet they're not the most fleshed-out alien race in Star Trek despite their longevity and rich warrior identity. Enterprise did wonders for our knowledge of the Vulcans. Could the series bring anything new to the Klingons? In this episode of Warp Five hosts Christopher Jones and Kate Walsh take a look at the Klingons' eleven appearances on Enterprise and discuss how they were introduced, what the writers did with them in episodes like "Sleeping Dogs" and "Judgment," and whether it was really necessary to explain the lack of forehead ridges in The Original Series.
