That's it, in my opinion. Passions. Open expressions of feelings, especially
aggression and anger.

Well, I'm not girly pretty, but I could never handle a rough, tough,
liquor-swigging world. I'd die first, if it didn't kill me. (What?)
Now I'm wondering what race I'd be, if I had to live in the Star Trek world.
Romulan, maybe? Naw, probably some sort of renegade human. Or maybe Orion.
Orions get to dance and have sex.
> what's not to like?
Hey, it takes all types to make a world. I like Klingons, I really do, but I
can't identify. It just isn't my fantasy by any stretch of the imagination.
I'm not deeply in love with Klingon dentistry. or blood wine (ew!)
but kicking ass I like.
who was dangerous in karate class (full contact). then my knee went south...
