Alien Cultures in Star Trek

I am someone really curious about the various alien cultures in Star Trek. But I wanna start off this thread with one of the most popular cultures in Star Trek and thats the Klingon Culture. I guess I will start off with a sort of easy question and that is how do fellow klingons if they do show each other a sign of respect? And do humans also have to do a similar thing to show they have respect for the klingon as well?

Well if you're talking about the headplate banging, lots of extreme sporters bang safety helmets before hurling themselves off a cliff, etc.

As a sign of respect, Vulcans use a particular hand gesture.

As a sign of respect, Klingons insult and threaten to kill each other.
