You Romulans and Klingons and all other 'tough' races out there who believe Starfleet to be soft. Take note.
Don't cheer too loudly. In an objective universe the Klingons and the Romulans would still kick the Federation's ass.
Fighting tenaciously when your back is against the wall is a matter of instinct, not a battle strategy. Every living thing makes a last stand against death. Lots of them die anyway.
