Possibly, we'll have to see what is supposedly going to be explained/shown in season 2 of Discovery.
Season 4 of Star Trek Enterprise via retcon explained why the Klingon's in ToS looked like darker skinned humans with goatees, instead of the crabheads we're most used too. Virus/Genetic mutation. Episodes: Borderland, Cold Station 12, The Augments and Affliction and Divergence.
Before that, Worf touched on it in DS9, but dodged:
^ Nah. Next Gen and DS9 are the superior television IMHO.
But the only movies worth watching are ones with the original crew.
Honestly there was no need for Enterprise to address that. When DS9 touched on it, they obviously couldnt avoid it given how the episode took place, but it was also handled as just a very comedic moment. Worfs line - we do not discuss it with outsiders - was all the explanation required Imo.
It would be like Star Wars going back and explaining why Vader vs Ben was so slow in ANH. Just no need for it Imho.

But I did enjoy how they did it, working in Star Trek's most iconic villain, Khan, in a roundabout way and bringing in Brent Spiner with the TNG/Data tie-in. Also some of the better five episodes of the series.
