It's okay, man...the Obsidian Order is very, very thorough in its infiltration techniques. Don't let your altered biology upset you.

And just how did you find out about THAT citizen? Our operations on Earth are deeply classified and we can't afford to... I've said too much.

Romulans!

No, Vulcans.

Romulans! Rihannsu ones especially, not the TNG garbage.

But what about those Vulcans?

Romulans, I say!

Vulcans. The TOS variety (amazing how TNG and beyond did such a $*#@ job with both Vulcans and Romulans.)

Oh, what can I say. The pointy-ears, smarts and passion of both races get me every time.

Romulans-Vulcans

(But definitely not those bikers of the galaxy, the over-used and overrated Klingons.)
Oh, T'Bonz! I would back you up if we were ever at a con together, I'm 5'11".

Yes, well, after a lot of thought and deep consideration...

My fave race: Vulcans

My fave "villains" Romulans/Rihannsu

Not terribly original, but I've felt this way for 40 years and I'm too damned old to change.

I wish there was more Vulcan?Romulan language around. I have no desire to learn Klingon.

Re: Favorite alien race

TNG era Klingons for sure . Ron Moore helped flesh out these guys for 10 years on both TNG and DS9, and he did an amazing job of it. Michael Dorn and J.G. Hertzler made Worf and Martok two of my favorite characters in all of trek, and KRAD (primarily) continues to make them kick ass in treklit. The Romulans/Rihannsu from treklit come in second place. The Romulans from the various tv series were never fleshed out nearly as much as they have been on the page

Re: Favorite alien race

I would definitely have to say my favorite race are the Vulcans, followed by Andorians. I'm not really sure I've read any heavily Vulcan centric books though. Any recommendations?

I will have to go w/ the Andorians. Enterprise made them a very interresting species to follow.

Re: Favorite alien race

The Klingons are easily the most developed race and culture in the ST universe. While I don't think they really fascinate me, I sure get a kick out of them every time they're onscreen.

My favorite race, though? Vulcans. Spock simply made them the coolest.

Is the Borg Queen a race?

Ask a difficult question...

My vote would be, no, she's
attempting to absorb trillions of other beings, from multiple species, into one pseudo-race.

That sounds like kinda like she's a race of one. As "singular" as it sounds.

Klingons can be fun...but...

Ah...how dull of me, but I love the Vulcans best always have, always will. Spock made them very cool, and Sarek made them sexy.

Runner up race would be the Rihannsu - basically Vulcans unbuttoned.
