Check Out L'Rell's New Look For Star Trek: Discovery Season 2

Mary Chieffo’s Discovery Character L’Rell Gets Hair in Season 2

CBS has released a detailed look at Mary Chieffo‘s Star Trek: Discovery character L’Rell, as she’ll be seen when the series returns for a second season this January. The most glaring alteration to her season one look is the addition of hair. This look is, of course, much more aligned with how Klingons have been represented on screen in the franchise, since Star Trek: The Motion Picture, in 1979 and throughout The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine and Voyager.

While we got our first glimpse of the character’s new look in the trailer that was released as New York Comic Con, CBS revealed this new image during Destination Star Trek, which took place in Birmingham, UK over the weekend.

Check out L’Rell’s new look for the second season of Star Trek: Discovery below.

    On Star Trek Enterprise, the human look of the TOS-era Klingons was explained by saying they were exposed to genetically engineered human DNA. I wonder if the writers of the show will say L’Rell was treated with something similar to repair her facial scars.

    They’re backpedaling.

    They are backpedaling because fans HATE the Stupid new look. However, there are still unreconciled discrepancies due to their Arogant I-don’t-care-about-continuity-I-want-to-leave-MY-mark-on-it-at-all-costs attitude.
    Nevermind the Fact that the long debated question of why TOS Klingons looked different was Settled in Enterprise. Nevermind the Fact that Klingons in Enterprise looked like Next Generation Klingons and NOT like insect/lizard people. Never mind the Fact that they were shown to already be a United People in Enterprise. Nevermind the Fact that it has Consistently been stated and shown throughout the series that Klingons first got cloaking tech during Kirk’s time as Captain of the Enterprise. No, nevermind ALL that Established history because THEY wanted to be ‘New’ and make their mark on an already Established and Profitable Franchise built by Other People’s Hard Work.
