    Except that Cato the Elder finally got his wishes. Carthage has been destroyed to a point that there's nothing left of it.

    There's a time patrol story by Poul Anderson named "Delenda!" where someone dickered with the timeline, Carthage was the victorious city and Rome had been destroyed in its place instead. The world was of course completely different. As there isn't a country in the world that hasn't been impacted by the predominance of Rome for several centuries. One detail: the Christian religion in that timeline didn't exist. At some point, the hero asked himself if he had a moral right to change the timeline back and wipe out all the people to serve his own interest. It was an interesting point.

    Maybe I should've used the analogy of poor Mr. Worf instead.

    Seriously, did the guy ever make any suggestion that Picard followed?

    I guess when Picard saw him trying to shoot a viewscreen it removed a lot of the guy's credibility.:D

    This is actually the subplot of First Contact is realizing Worf was right.

    I thought it was about Picard getting (very) delayed PTSD and getting over it in a matter of minutes.:D

    As opposed to family where he had PTSD and then got over it by the end of the episode ;)

    Personally, I'd much prefer watching something like this in the show...

    Who knows, it's the Disco era. Perhaps the 25% different crab monsters will be really dashing and alluring crab monsters even when they're not in the human form.

    To think that in MIB a giant Cockroach the size of a double-decker bus can stick his entire body inside the skin of one human being, and not even a fat one at that.:guffaw:

    Hey, it was a very alluring and dashing Edgar Suit. It's not his fault that us humans can't truly appreciate bug fashions :lol:

    Between his bad parenting, bad suggestions, refusal to live with his neighbors on DS9, his knockem-sockem private life with Jadzia, the creepy jealous ex thing with Ezri, the "this is sex" thing etc, Worf is this amazingly strange flawed character.


    But he DOES have hobbies

    I think his double stomach can handle it ok. Or it's twice the mess.

    Klingon restrooms are filled with cries of victory and Harley-Davidson V-twin throttle cacaphony of Klingon doublebutts dealing with worm, meat, and blood diet.

    And here I was thinking that Hoshi vomited merely because of the smells in that Klingon latrine she had to search through in Observer Effect :guffaw:
