IIRC, the reason the Bynars were desperate was that they didn't have enough warning to properly prepare.

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

I'd like to add that Worf, being essentially an expatriate, had some rather romantic views about his own people. I always thought he adopted the 'romantic' version of what Klingons are supposed to be. For one, it seems to fit a more noble image. For another, it fits better with the values he'd been raised with in the Federation.

Might also have to factor in that he was also the Klingon equivalent of a nobleman and with it comes a certain set of behaviors.

Therefore I submit this. I think Worf tried to follow an ideal Klingon image and kinda made a few wrong conclusions. It shows when he actually has to hang out with his people. He knows all the rituals and how to act in specific social situations. However, he falls flat on his face when he has to try and relax with his fellow Klingons in a more casual setting. When he acts like the ideal Klingon, to other Klingons it looks like he has a painstick up his... well, you know.

It's like reading stories about Knights and Chivalry, then looking into the history to find out that Knights weren't really all that Chivalrous.
That all makes sense until you take into account Kahless. He was exactly like Worf. Perhaps, the priests intended it that way. Perhaps, the romantic version of the Klingon is exactly how Klingons were several thousand years ago. It's hard to guess.

Another thing to consider is technology. Klingons do still continue research and development, but it seems as though their tech growth had slowed greatly ibetween Ent and TNG...

Any species that originated in the Delta Quadrant. Voyager never ran across an alien species that I cared for.

Definitely the Skrreea.

Dirty, stupid, primitive and they think they can just go to settle on a planet which belongs to another race. Hello?? There are enough planets in the galaxy. Search another one! Far away please.

I didn't like Betazoids much. The only difference between them and humans was the psychic powers.

The Mintakans were dumb. The episode they featured in had an interesting premise, but race's actual design was extensively lazy, right down to the cheap red plastic bows with vines glued on.

I also disliked the Ocampa. They didn't make any sense at all. Just fragile pixie-children created specifically to be saved by Voyager.

The messed up part is that it was a FEDERATION cultural observer who taught them to be Nazis....

I second this feeling...Cats shouldnt be a species...where are the Canine species....we do need more balance for dog lovers
