Real Klingons eat MEAT! Preferably raw. Sometimes still moving.
Gagh, in particular, is supposed to be best when still alive and healthy. If the worms aren’t moving much, it’s not good gagh.

There’s a scene in The Challenge, with Scott Glenn and Toshiro Mifune, in which Glenn’s character is having dinner with Japanese who are eating live worms. They goad him into trying it, and after swallowing it he said, “I can feel it moving around!” obviously very disturbed, and he grabbed a vessel of sake and started guzzling. The Japanese all laughed at him.

Anybody know anything about live worms in Japanese cuisine?

(Actually, I’m not sure it was worms. It might have been eels or snakes or something. Definitely something long and wiggly.)
