The aesthetic is full of Klingon iconography and details that offer a narrative reveal for those who look closely. 3D printed entirely by 3D Systems at its Gentle Giant Studios location, and designed and fabricated at Alchemy Studios under the guidance of Glenn Hetrick, this unique partnership afforded the production a specialty costume unlike any other in the Star Trek franchise.
