Howard Day said:That cummy compression covered a multitude of sins. That and really good lighting. Still - when I think Kilrathi, WC2's Thrackath pops to mind, before any of the others. But that's just probably because I was young and impressionable when I first saw WC2.
It's because... uh... back in early 2654, Prince Thrakhath got so furious about the fleet's poor performance that he ordered everyone to shave off their fur in atomenent. This was a one-time thing, though, and once the fur grew back, it grew back to stay. And then just kept on growing and growing, until in 2673, everyone looked like Melek.Howard Day said:I prefer to think of them as all the same Kilrathi - just with a wide variety of various builds and looks. Like terrestrial Big Cats. The particular cats in the WCM were like any other - they just happened upon a shipment of Human Nair at Pegasus. Either that or they just got out of their yearly flea treatment.
Utterly ridiculous, I know. Makes no sense at all.
Then just imagine every cat in any WC looks like the WC3 ones.Mace said:because in WC3 cutscenes, the cats look real impressive.
Improper gamma correction is the reason the Kilrathi look different in the movie ?What's wrong with the theory that the Kilrathi in the movie simply replace those we've previously seen until now?
The same reason the sky is black in WC4 and not blue like the other games.
I've never seen this in Enterprise. Where did it happen?Nomad Terror said:In Enterprise, the Klingons eventually became infected with a plague, and only a cure made from human DNA was able to save them, and among other things, this human DNA removed their forehead ridges.
That was what I was talking about with my "We do not discuss it with outsiders". Enterprise wasn't around at the time of that episode. So the answer would have been "we've got a bigger budget now". So to cover it up simply, he avoids answering the question. It should have been left at that without getting too technical.In DS9, when questioned why 23rd century Klingons looked so different, Worf explains that it is something Klingons are very embarassed about. This is why.
