Most untrustworthy race in the galaxy?

Cardassians? Romulans? Ferengi?

Re: Most untrustworthy race in the galaxy?

Do you mean to say "government" rather than "race"? Or are we not judging by individuals rather than racial stereotypes in the future?

Re: Most untrustworthy race in the galaxy?

I was going to say Ferengi, but it would not be in their best interests to do so. If they were, and word got out, nobody would ever do business with them.

Humans, though? Really? In my also HO, there is no such thing as "most untrustworthy race". Every race, fictional or otherwise, has its good and bad.

Pre-DS9 finale Founders. Way to prove all the stereotypes and prejudices against your species were totally on the money guys.

If we're talking governments, definitely humans. The Obsidian Order and the Tal Shiar have got nothing on Section 31.

Re: Most untrustworthy race in the galaxy?

Lot of human guilt going on in this thread. Yeah, if we're judging entire races by their worst members, humans, but then we should all be Muslim-bashing right about now.

If we're judging by the average member rather than the absolute worst, then Vorta.

Romulans would have to be up there.

overall though this is a racist stereotyping thread, and i'm sure all individuals deserve to be judged on their own merit rather than pre-conceived notions :-)

Oh yeah, I forgot about them. Poor Vorta. They basically have no choice in the matter. They're genetically programmed to be sneaky little rats.

I'm gonna go with Yridians. They're like Ferengi, but without the charm.

Beguiling bunch. Of all the races, Humans are the most root-beer like.
