When you feel that sometimes you need to be a Cardassian to protect your interests, your employees' dignity, and your professional image.
Say, you are working in an industry that somehow receives a lot of very nasty customers who harass your staff, managers and even the directors themselves. Only you have any sort of experience dealing with such riffraff (and no, polite customer service does not work in Asia - you will be taken advantage of and made to do favours for free.)

Because I only have two wheels and not four I imagine the LCARS computer voice automatically saying "Multi Vector Assault mode activated".
Native Asian drivers here apparently will not give way to other vehicles but actively block you if you try to pass, so what I do is feint left and then attack from the right to lanesplit past the huge gap they left on the other side.
They have no idea how to compensate for motorcycle MVAM
