Ok so there are certin things we say to label people "that's so gay. Troll, Republican!"

but what about in 2410? What would a Federation (or Klingon!) Capt say to insult someone? Does the Fedie stick out his finger and say "you Klingon scum!"

I prefer the term Smeghead. Or filthy xeno if that would be appropriate.

Well, one would hope that the Federation would be above racist and "speciesist" insults. The Klingons, however, have a long and sultry list of insults to draw upon, with petaQ being the most common.

Don't forget everyone has their opinions. O'brien didn't like the Cardassians, yet it wasn't the Federations stance. So there's probably a few people within the Federation who have strong opinions against other species. And since the Federation is at war with the Klingons, I'm willing to bet there are many of them right now.

I tell people they "have the Intelligence quotient of a Parsnip" when I'm feeling sort of sophisticated. not very trek though.

As for a Star Trek insult? meeeh... I call Klingons "Ridge Heads" and Son'a "Stretch Face"

You spelled that word wrong. It is spelled like this. P'tach.

I've seen it both ways. Is there a link for an "official" spelling?
