#startrek I think I finally understand why I love the Klingons so much. It's because they bring a space-operatic, mythic character to the franchise that it doesn't really get anywhere else. Klingon arcs are always about something fantastical, something legendary -- saving the Empire, resurrecting the dead Emperor, getting Jadzia into Sto'vo'kor, visiting Gre'thor. Big, theatrical, legendary stories is where they shine. They're right out of Shakespeare, who was, of course, Klingon.
