For the fans of Star Trek we have news direct from www.trekcore.com We saw a brief glimpse of her royal style in the Star Trek: Discovery trailer that arrived at New York Comic Con earlier this month — but today we’ve got our best look yet at Chanceller L’Rell (Mary Chieffo) and her new warrior mane! First released through the actor’s social media accounts, this production photo from the upcoming second season of Discovery features the newly-minted leader of the Klingon Empire in Qo’noS-inspired high fashion from costume designer Gersha Phillips, and – most notably – with the restoration of the classic Klingon hairstyle for the first time in the series. Mary Chieffo explained at New York Comic Con that the restoration of Klingon hair for Discovery Season 2 is tied directly to lore surrounding Kahless the Unforgettable, and how the ancient warrior created the first bat’leth weapon from a lock of his own hair — as told by the cloned Kahless in TNG’s “Rightful Heir.” The Klingons of Season 1 shaved their heads “in a time of war,” Chieffo explained, and now that a relative peace has returned to the Empire, they have grown it back — and the new aesthetic created by prothetics specialist Glenn Hetrick has come with it. We’ll see more of L’Rell and the Klingons in the season premiere of Star Trek: Discovery, returning on January 17. So what do you guys think? Sure looks more like the classic Klingon we know and love, is it enough?
