I liked the look of the Klingons in J.J. Abrams' Star Trek Into Darkness. They kept the classic design that we all are familiar with, but here's a collection of alternate concept designs, showing us that the look could have been very different. The concept art comes from illustrator Neville Page, who had this to say,
"JJ Abrams ("Mission: Impossible III") was kind enough to have me on board another Star Trek. It was not too dissimilar to the first experience, other than I was too busy to be cast as an Alien this time. Then again, I did go down with the ship in the previous one.
This first round of images are some of the development of the Klingons. This was a very important assignment for me because I knew how important it was to the fans of the franchise. It was a delicate balance of respecting the established looks from previous incarnations yet delivering something appropriate for JJ's film."
Look over the alternate designs below and let us know if you like any of them better than what we saw in the movie.
