Klingons are one of the most iconic Star Trek alien races. In 51 years they have evolved from deceptive villains to honorable allies — and now, with the arrival of Star Trek: Discovery this week, they're becoming spiritual warriors once again, at odds with our heroes. Here's everything you need to know about the past, present, and future of Qo'noS's finest.
Star Trek: Discovery is set 10 years before the events of the original Star Trek, but that wasn't always going to be the case. It was almost an anthology show that was going to take fans from the pre-Kirk Federation into Star Trek's future.

There's a weird problem that keeps popping up with Star Trek: Discovery and I can't tell whose fault it is. Is it journalists writing about the show who don't know its background?

Whatever the cause, the effect is that Discovery is constantly marketed as groundbreaking when it should be marketed as following in Star Trek's footsteps.
It's getting close, now. On September 24, the first new Star Trek series in years will debut. Star Trek Discovery is said to take place in the Prime timeline, setting it in the same continuity as everything else in the Trek-verse save the Abrams movies. Which means it's a good time for a history lesson.
Welcome back to Toy Aisle, ours weekly roundup of the coolest collectibles around. This week: Star Wars!

But there's more than the galaxy far, far away to tempt your wallet this week.
After this morning's fun, the folks at Netflix came back to me with one small additional fact: the number of accounts in Australia that have watched all the Star Trek episodes on the streaming service.
An official, high-definition remaster of Star Trek: Voyager will almost certainly never happen. While arguably less popular than TNG and DS9, the show, which followed a Starfleet crew stranded in the Delta quadrant 70,000 light years from Earth, still had its moments — particularly any episode featuring Robert Picardo's holographic doctor.
