10/15! I'm shocked that I missed 5 [forgot that TV Klingons only spoke English], 6, 7, 13, and 15!
12/15. Missed #'s 7, 9, 11. I am rather surprised that you missed #5. The picture should have, [it obviously didn't, otherwise you wouldn't have missed it;] given you a clue as to which year. The Klingon unis of '69, {I can't remember if they were even in an episode, that year} were more knit like, closer fitting.
Trivia Tidbit: the GIF {I think it's called,} is from Season 5 Episode 1 "Adios, Johnny Bravo."
The years "69, and '79," have special meaning for me, {as I'm sure they have for others.} In '69, my sister was in the first graduating class of Wilmont Junior High, [in Deerfield IL.] In '79, that's when I graduated high school at Woodlands Academy Of The Sacred Heart, Lake Forest, IL. Aren't these trivial bits of trivia, just utterly fascinating?!?!
