Re: Star Trek: Sigils and Unions--The Thirteenth Order

Its alive!

Lovely comparison between humanity and our Cardassian brothers from another mother, especially that little detail about the eyes. To look downwards is a sign of shame for Cardassians who actually seem quite direct in their body language (ironic when one considers their reputation), whereas for Humans it is a sign of dishonesty. Both negative preconceptions but for different reasons.

A brilliant touch in an excellent story.

I also like the rather sinister hint at the end that the foul serpent that has corrupted Cardassia may yet still live...

(Am I right in thinking that in the 24th century the British diction has taken over European English?)
