    Ah, yes several cutting remarks that did great damage to his ego. Superior Cardassian intellect wins out again.

    Seriously, we lost a war to THAT rabble?:wtf:

    I'm going to mention a race no one else has, even though no one has really written a book that truly featured it: Caitians.

    The Rihannsu. The Romulan Way is my second favorite Trek novel.

    Lost???

    More like the Federation refused to take a stand when their "allies" got out of line. And who knows--we had it down to a stalemate before Dukat the Traitor took over...we could've won yet!

    Of course our superior tactics and strategy where winning the day but the Klingon's cloaks give them a big advantage in Ship to Ship combat.
    Damn Romulans...

    And yeah the Federation should have payed more attention to their unstable allies, the KE is a extremist state based on a blood stoaked ideology of 'honourable' combat. That's not going to end well for anyone. (except for the Founders...)

    Indeed. And how dare they condemn Cardassia for subjugating and attacking other worlds, while ignoring the less-than-kind actions of their "allies"...

    I suppose it's only so they can keep the Klingons on side due to their effectiveness as shock troops againist the Federations enemies.
    Humans, so predictably treacherous:devil:.

    Or they could just be bloody fools.

    A mix of both. So foolish and naive they don't even REALIZE they're treacherous. And that's what makes them dangerous.

    and

    Changelings/Founders - because they are actually different, and because formerly oppressed people who become the ultimate oppressors and conquerors makes for a great story. The only problem is that their physical representation wasn't all that convincing (they've imitated solid humanoid form too much, and too often with Odo-like shapeless face - it would have been more interesting to see them either in non-humanoid shapes, or posing as members of other races for infiltration purposes; both were done, but rarely).

    Whoa, those Humans sound like a real menace to anyone who comes across them. Glad I'm not one of 'em.

    ::reassuring pat on the back::

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

    :lol: 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 :vulcan:

    My fave "villains" Romulans/Rihannsu:rommie:

    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.

    TNG era Klingons for sure :klingon::klingon:. 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 :)

    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?
