Please let Misfit Toy and I deal with this stuff. Thanks.

And yes, Xzpezer, I appreciate your enthusiasm and interest in the forum. Why not take some time to read the active threads, read the FAQ, get a handle on how the site works, and so forth. Starting up a bunch of threads right away is usually not a good way to begin. And certainly, don't start 5 a day like you did yesterday.

Thanks.

Re: Klingon first contact

Conquered humanity lol..

Given the Klingons, I couldn't see them doing anything else.

Most likely, they'd leave us alone, as at that technological level we would not be a threat to them. And Kahless said it's dishonourable to attack a weaker opponent, so if they're god says as such, it stands lol..

But didn't the Klingons also murder their gods?

Cochrane would have shot the Klingon leader, then the crowd behind him would have stormed the Klingon ship. By the time the next Klingon ship showed up, we would have reverse engineered their technology and built our own fleet.

Kahless isn't their god - he's more like a founding father. And Klingons are just as capable of hypocrisy as humans. (Worf was more like a Klingon archetype than an actual Klingon, because he learned how to be one looking in from the outside.) If Earth is as rich in dilithium as I believe it is (mostly non-canon reasons, but still, it makes sense), the Klingons would have had us doing slave labor in mines PDQ.

I'm not trying to contradict, but I want to mention two things:

1. Xzpezer is 15.
2. I'm actually enjoying his topics. I was a little annoyed at first, and he could still use some guidance on which forum to put some topics in (and on grammar and punctuation), but once I stopped taking things so seriously and decided to *play*, they've been pretty good.

Just my two quatloos.

We might have had an entire generation of humans calling them "Klingots".

I don't know, I kinda got the impression by the time of TNG that Kahless is considered to be the Klingon version of Jesus.

Kahless was more of a societal prophet than God.

To be fair, I think Jesus seemed to have a much bigger Messiah complex than Kahless. I'm not aware of Kahless making the level of outlandish claims that Jesus did, but it seems like the Klingons still treat Kahless as a pseudo-Messiah. The dude has entire religious orders that fixate on him.

Whatever Kahless said, it came out of him, and it was not about some divine stuff. He's a philosopher at best, because Klingons don't have gods.
