Not if there are a group of soldiers all thinking along the same lines. Still, whether hung out to dry or not, the act of one does not define the act of many.

The Ferengi being greedy is true, though it has exceptions (Nog). The Cardassians being evil has exceptions (already explained). The Romulans being militaristic, that one I'll give you cause I can't think of an example that shows otherwise. Klingons are proud and aggressive, again true, though they aren't all the same. Think, Gowron was Arrogant (to the point he became jealous and risked lives). Duras (and the entire family) were as dishonourable as they come. Martok was open to diplomacy and friends with the Federation. The Borg, they're essentially one person.
