Quick question for any boomers out there. Were there any complaints about the rebooted Klingons in the Motion Picture, like, were people angry that they didn't look like the TOS or TAS ones?

Nobody here's that old and if they are they're lying if they say they remember. Fact of the matter is nobody complains about stuff like that when there's longing and when the movie isn't a piece of shit, both of which were the case for TMP. Fans were probably just happy to get their crew back and get a decent film; updated designs would've been a tertiary concern. There were no doubt pockets of complainers, the same type of overanalyzers who've always existed to sap joy from popular things, but it's only today that people whine ceaselessly about stupid shit like Klingons.

It was such a minor part of TMP. People mostly complained about the endless wank shots of the 1701 and the Spock meets the spacebaby knock off scenes.

I know I've seen some archived nerd rage from Starlog and... I think the Weekly World News or somebody with a similar AMI tabloid layout regarding that new "Next Generation" show.

Maybe check letters columns of SF mags and zines from back then? I know I've seen scans of a lot of random mags through the 50s and 60s. I recall one had James Blish (yes of TOS book fame) doing editor work and saying that he was putting his foot down about this nerds vs scientology stuff that kept getting in the way of normal nerding.

At least you can make an argument that the post TMP generation of Klingons were deeper and more interesting than the previous ones.

I'm not sure what they were trying to accomplish by changing their design again but it just came across as changing them because they could.

They didn't have the budget for TOS that they did for movies. That's why so many aliens in TOS are just people with a silly hat or whatever.

The thing I don't get it, if it truly was a budget issue, why didn't they revamp them in TAS, cartoons aren't constrained by a costume department.? Don't get me wrong, I like all Klingons, apart from STD ones, and I'm happy with the augment virus explanation.

They probably didn't think about it until the movie because the movie was meant to try and siphon some money from the newly minted Star Wars crowd. People tuning into TAS would have been previous trekkers and children, and the simpler the design the cheaper the characters would be to animate in the stiff pseudo-hanna-barbera style. But the movie needed to have more razzle dazzle to attract the widest possible audience.

Not TMP and not Klingons but semi-related

yeah that's the AMI-looking dude I was talking about
might be Enquirer or a non-AMI but that's totally a tabloid layout

In the future they must have virtual animation. With that control they would remake the Klingon and draw over all the other masterpieces.

Graffiti and vandalism to draw over a painting permanently, so the original would be preserved intombed. Then a perfect micro analysis synthesised creation with the Industry approved tick signature would also be given at the auctioneers, they would have on record all the scans of the original and any updates in the manufacturing processes would be passed on.

So in theory in the future the T.V's would be so advanced they would have to start over and remake molds, if the wanted to replicate it.

Yeah it's not surprising at all that every screenshot of that doesn't show which publication it's in. Most say at the header or footer.
