Genetic disease during a hundred years or so of history in the Star Trek universe which resulted from the use of genetic modification to produce stronger warriors, as and Klingons always wanted the strongest warriors a lot of them were affected by it.
There was a cure for the physical mutilations developed later on in the story though.

(though in real life terms they just got a bigger budget after the original series and got a proper makeup team :L )

Half of the klingons later on with the ridged are that same tan colour. The ones placed by white actors usually.  Worf stole the show for klingons, and so did many other characters played by black actors, so many people don't noticed the relatively few tan klingons in TNG and beyond.

... I feel like that was phrased wrong as I am not sure what your trying to correct me on. The fact is that the Klingons even when they started had brown/tan skin. The originals may not have had ridges and were played by Caucasian actors, BUT the entire time they were brown (it was crappy makeup but it was there).

Furthermore Tan is usually defined as a shade of brown when referred to as a color. In its active form it can refer to becoming peach or red colored but most times it still stands for the whole of a browning effect in the skin. Like at very best Klingons are a Mediterranean tan skin color and that's with the minimal makeup.

So the question still remains why isn't this depiction of a Klingon not sporting at least the brown or tan skin and or the noticeable eyebrows.
I'm sorry i am a nerd and i really like this ST.

Oh sorry, I thought you were asking me to give an in-canon explanation why the average Klingon had much darker skin after TOS.

I think the 'genetic disease' answer basically had human DNA assert itself, though not fully. Got rid of the spine and forehead ridges and made most klingons a shorter build.

Really it's a crappy explanation and something like a fashion trend or a diplomatic move would have been better, but it's what we were given, so have to roll with it for canon.

if a true klingon saw this woman they'd most likly ask where are her ridges on her head?

the one I remeber was the one with the entity of hate and violence, I forget the name of the episode. and I guess I've gotten used to the klingons from STNG and beyond.

The Original Series Klingon women had no Klingonian crest on their foreheads, therefore no Klingonian bone inside their bodies
They looked like Earth girls.
Or even worse, Romulan girls...

I know. That's why I'm saying this is a TOS Klingon.

And don't underestimate Romulan women. They're firecrackers in bed, trust me.

although I must admit, ten doesn't make for a great statistical sampling.

Romulan women have kick ass "visages" French for face.

And those eye brows make me yell MERCY !

I actually dated some galls which had those romulan eye brows.
It made their Earthling bickering a tad more
easy to bear.

But still, Klingon girls are berserkers in bed.
If you taimed them, you feel powerfull.
Only John McLane can mate with multiple klingon girls at once.

Geez, I love talking about virtual species inter relations.
Thank u very much for this rare ocassion!

Нали! ;) Попадна ми подходящ модел и веднага се възползвах! Девойката е ново лице на Ивет Фешън и според мен има много красота в нея! Това и е първата сесия, но се държа като един професионален модел!
