Yeah, they were a really dumb idea. And they were boring humanoids.
HAIL HYDRA!

MMOs aren't charities. Corporations are supposed to make a profit. It's what they do.

I guess you missed the part about them only appearing to be idiots. Remember all that "junk" on the pakled ship? Stolen, reverse engineered and improved from various other folks.

You make a good point.

As a whole, I'd think Cardassians a rather proud people; Damar seemed to think this way. Sure, some of their actions might have been questionable (Damar killing Ziyal) but from Damars point of view, Ziyal has betrayed his people.

Cardassians aren't evil. It isn't the entire species, only some select individuals.

I can't think on minor races; boy there have been so many I've thought stupid, but I'm going to vote Kazon. They're essentially Klingon wannabees. They've a code of honour, but it's a bit backwards, they work in clans (similar to Klingon houses) and they live on dark ships that look like they're about to fall apart.

Ferengi from season 1 of TNG, The Last Outpost episode. Fortunately they get some improvements. Fortunately I never saw this episode till TNG went into syndication years after it originally aired, otherwise this episode would have turned me off.

Hitler was one man (a loony) and yet we WERE judged on him (see some adaptions of the day the earth stood still)

The Day the Earth Stood Still is just a film, a piece of fiction ...then again, so is Star Trek.

There was a Cardassian in TNG "Lower Decks" that risked his life to get a message to the Federation. In that episode there was a dialogue between him and a Bajoran in which he stated he was tired of war. That Cardassian wasn't evil. Damar wasn't evil, he was doing what he thought right by his people. You spoke of a hologram, there was a second (female) hologram in another episode of Voyager that wasn't evil, she helped Torres I think.

You can't sum up an entire species / country as evil because of the actions of a few individuals. Look at the war in Iraq / Iran. There were stories (some of them, quite possibly true) of US solders raping and attacking civilians. Does that make all Americans evil? No it doesn't.

Just because you get a bad bunch in a crowd, it doesn't mean the entire crowd are bad people.

Ferengi join Starfleet. Nog has joined Starfleet. I don't recall Nog being that concerned with Latinium toward the later seasons of DS9.

I wish to change my vote, whilst the Kazon are still unfavourable, they can go down to second place. My first place of unfavourable aliens has to go to the Wormhole Aliens.
