Klingons Aren’t Awesome Enough For New Trek
Knowing that Nero is a Romulan, I didn’t really expect to see any Klingons in the new Trek flick. But apparently, there are Klingons on the cutting room floor. AZM Ally Greg writes with word that there was a scene shot on the Klingon prison planet Rura Penthe where there are no guards, no stockade, only a magnetic shield to prevent beaming, where if you work well, you live, and if you work badly, you die. The scene would have explained where Nero had been for a few decades and possibly why he’s so ill tempered.
I would have liked to have seen a little more of Rura Penthe. Those scenes were some of my favorite in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. But I’m not entirely sad to see no Klingons. Hopefully, the scene will make it on to the DVD as an extra or integrated back in as part of an extended cut.
