How many of those human varations have tails?
The STO novel explicitly states the Gorn don't have tails, it's not really that complicated.

Oh, BTW we're talking about the fat that the size of the JJ-Gorn mouths leaves no room for a brain of any credible carpacity..

The Federation has not managed to contain.
The Klingons were were not willing to go to war with the Feds.
In "Yesterday's Enterprise", the Klingons did and they won.
What does that tell you?

Let's see, "battle-mad barbarians" tells us you're unwilling to actually discuss the Klingons as a species.

"The Klingon's get most of their technology by stealing it from other races", I'd like to get an actual source for this, or is it just some BS you came up with?

Lets not even count the time when a whole Fleet of Klingon Ships were incapable of overcoming one Cardassian space station... says better things about the Cardassians to be honest.

HMM, the Fleet you talk about was only a minor part of the forces the Klingons sent into Cardassian space since the rest was still fighting the Cardassians at that point.
Gownron says as much when he orders them to stop their invasion afterwards.
The Klingons sent about a 3rd of their military and they basically wiped the Cardassians off the map in a week.
Do you actually watch Star Trek?
