"Wantonly Warlike"

Sure, in the Star Trek universe, you've got all sorts of aliens. Romulans and Ferengi, Nausicaans and Vulcans... the list goes on and on. But the original badasses of the intergalactic highways were The Klingons! The Earth-based, mostly human Starfleet met its match early on, in these raucous, tough-as-nails, bumpy-foreheaded bastards!

It's neat that, once humanity reached the stars, we ended up going to war with a species even more prone to violence than we are. But I have a soft spot for Klingons. They've got a samurai-like honor system, a fine appreciation for booze and Shakespeare, and they're into rough sex. If you ask me, they're the perfect adversary for the clean-cut, shiny uniformed, imperialistic space nerds of Starfleet.
