I thought all the talk was that Discovery would be set before the JJ Trek so it's still in the "prime" timeline.  At least I'm hoping that's still the case.  

I can accept that the producers (and actors) don't want a show that looks like "The Cage" pilot form the classic series.  Designers continually want to "put their own stamp" on things and re-design uniforms and sets.  That I can live with.

But are the aliens in the trailer meant to be Klingons or something else?
They are in fact Klingons, the writers have stated that the design throughout the history of trek has varied so dramatically that any further designs designate family head crests (paraphrased quote) each house has a particular style of forehead.

Ehh, if it's not broke... But as I said before getting top talent means they're going to get folks who want to do their own thing. Sometimes it works like Classic Klingons into Movie/TNG Klingons and sometimes you get Daleks transforming into Fatleks/Skittles. If they keep the Gene Roddenberry vision alive then that's what keeps it Trek versus generic sci-fi.
