So it is possible for a Klingon to loot bodies an be totally honorable, because what is considered honorable can differ between cultures.
If Feds can't "loot" we'll "explore" the corpse, try to pull some diplomatic strings on it and integrate it into the federation ...and everything goes to us Feds It all depends on the point of view
