Re: Chakotay, A True Maquis?

Until they didn't.

Once they all became human augment hybrids they got a more rational sense of function.

A book I read claimed that Klingon Armour is sometimes centuries old, and that the older it is, the more honour it has, and obviously the more falling apart it is and the less effective it is, and the harder it is to fight in.

I suppose after their IQ doubled, they said "Fuck this".

But modern 24th century Klingons, are they still augments who have been surgically altered, or has the genetic deformities been reversed?

Re: Chakotay, A True Maquis?

This is from that how to/do it yourself Klingon advice book... The reason why Klingons have beards is because it is so easy to win a fight by grabbing your opponents bead and pulling it, that only a coward would shave his beard off. A bare chin is the ultimate sign of cowardice.

But that doesn't explain the blip that lasted between at least 2267 and 2293.
It was retro day at Imperial Fleet Command during Nemesis.

The first 100 fans to show up wearing a 200 year old uniform got free Admiral Valdore bobbleheads.

Re: Chakotay, A True Maquis?

Chakotay had a skill set that made his usefulness more important than loyalty requirements.

Although it's as if the writers of Voyager didn't know anything about the Maquis.

Are they kill happy mentally unstable criminals or are they beleaguered farmers desperately trying to hold on to what little they have?

The Maquis were Cardassian Citizens, so you would think that the Volunteer rabble attacking their farms would have had a name, and also been a target of the swift carry on of Cardassian Justice?

...That is if they at all existed.
