Having enjoyed 'The Cleanest Food...' I'm looking forward to this. Scene 1 was well written and amusing.
, although I can't recall the term 'Civil Insults' being used, ENT certainly established that Tellarites enjoy a good argument. Complaints are a good way to start an argument. If there's nothing to complain about, they would start throwing insults about.
The proper course of action when being insulted by a Tellarite is to respond in kind. When a Tellarite first came on board the NX-01, he pointed out that he found the ship 'small and unimpressive'. Archer's response was 'That's funny, I was thinking the same about you.'
