Not sure if Cryptic will be happy i'm disclosing this or not.... buuuuut
at the end of august i went to Dragoncon in atlanta. Micheal Dorn was there, and i got to talk to him. according to him, he's already working with Cryptic right now. he wouldnt go into more detail, but the only reason i can think of that cryptic would higher Micheal Dorn is to do voice work.
Soon my klingon comrades, we shall have some epic voice overs of our own to taunt the federation with!
sidenote: anyone else noticed that they're highering voice actors in order of security chief of the enterprise? first tasha, then worf.... probably just a coincidence.
If Michael Dorn is coming aboard for some voice work, I can only hope that means alot of good things for the KDF. It may not necessarily mean KDF exclusive, but things to put the faction in a better spotlight. And with more attention, you know... more development. We'll see, but I know that's wishful thinking.
Lastly, I hope Cryptic makes better use of Michael Dorn than the devs of Fallout New Vegas did. Dorn's Super Mutant was a character originally from Fallout 2 and brought back for FONV, but the quest involvement with him was very minimal.
I think the problem behind the Klingon lifespan debate is actually a slightly different one: the old FASA materials claimed Klingons had a much shorter lifespan than humans.
60 being about the maximum on average and the human-klingon "fusions" (FASA's explanation for the forehead problem) getting a few more years, so it was based on genetics and not combat attrition.
And since people don't tend to check where certain information comes from they just grab stuff they found somewhere written by someone and run with it.
however TNG states that K'empec lead the klingon high council for more then a century and tv/films trumps all other sources.
