  •  BTW, that "reimagined" version sucks. (5+ / 0-)

    Klingons are warriors, not soldiers.  Warriors go out of their way to demonstrate their individual superiority with bright heraldry, insignia, awards, honors, etc all over themselves.  They're not Spartans.  Proving once again that JJ Abrams still doesn't know what the hell he's talking about.

    Democracy is a habit, not a circumstance.

    •  Very good distinction (6+ / 0-)

      Warriors seek individual glory while soldiers fight as a team.

      There are many examples in history but I'll use the Romans here:

      One on one a barbarian warrior would probably kill a Roman soldier.

      Ten on ten it was an even fight.

      A hundred versus a hundred it was Romans all the way.

      If the pilot's good, see, I mean if he's reeeally sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low... oh you oughta see it sometime. It's a sight. A big plane like a '52... varrrooom! Its jet exhaust... frying chickens in the barnyard!

      •  And just in general, why does the Abrams Trek (0+ / 0-)

        have to make everything suck?  Why are Romulans just mean assholes, Vulcans are just verbose jerks, and now apparently Klingons are low-rent Spartans?

          It was a decent action flick, but it wasn't Star Trek.
