Re: Is Klingon honor a bunch of hooey?

I always looked at it that not all Klingons are the same.

It's also possible that what is honorable for Klingons isn't the same as what is honorable for Humans. For a Klingon warrior, the use of trickery and deception may not be considered dishonorable if it's done to further the glory of the Empire (defeat or capture in battle, a major display of cowardice, or anything that brings shame to the Empire might be regarded as a stain on a Klingon's personal honor--if it's something really big, it could even extend to his entire House).
