No they were thugs, tough guys with no brains. ¿

Sorry, they were far from thugs.

Just 2 of them out smarted and took over the crew of a Klingon bird of Prey.

That takes planning, strategy, trais not really found in common thuggs.

How would Noonian have not gotten some crap for what Arkin had done.  I mean for lack of better words you could say that Arkin was a traitor who tried to lead a rebellion of sorts.


Tell me something, how much crap did you get over any actions of your great grandfather????

I seriously doubt N.Soong would have delt with much because of Arkin.

Exactly. But, why would Enterprise mention that, if it happened in the future??

The idea is that they originally had bumpy heads....durring the era of Enterprise a virus made them smoothed headed which lasted threw out TOS and up till TMP when they got the bumps back.

...still weird...

more like silly...lol....I guess that's true, but still if your great grandfather was a traitor in your home country I wonder if people would still no that after a few generations.  Like would Lee Harvey Oswald (if he had any relatives) great grandson get crap?  What do you think?

Theres no real reason to assume Arkin would be viewed as a traitor.

More like he would be viewed as a misguided scientist.

Lee Harvey Oswald had a bother and while he did experance some negativity over the years I've heard he was well liked later in life in his comunity.

And Adolf Hitler has family in some parts of the U.S., Long Island New York for example.

As a matter of fact I was quite familiar with one family member.Not much negativity in that persons life over Adolf.

Althou its not very well known that they are related.But its not impossible to find out either.

In TNG's "Datalore" they established N. Soong to be a renowned cyberneticist, but fell out of favor with the scientific community because his heavily publicized failures overshadowed his accomplishments. He then traveled around under an assumed name and continued his work on Omicron Theta - but even there the colonists called him "Often Wrong Soong".

Given the above and add that to his heritage, it's logical to assume that the media would've had their eye on him. When he failed, I'm sure the artificial nature of his work would have been compared to that A. Soong's work with the Augments. But in the end, N. Soong proved it was possible.

I saw footage of Michael Dorn getting the ridges put on. They are latex. They are not permanant. It has nothing to do with genetics. He wasen't born that way. It's plastic.

The Klingons in "Enterprise" time (C 2154) were trying to create "Augments"  Reference season 4 episode "Affliction".  (For Augments, ref episodes "Borderland", "Cold Station 12" and "The Augments"; 1st 3 episodes of season 4 Enterprise.)  In trying to alter Klingon genes to create these augments, they used genes that contained human genes, which gave the Klingons the smooth forehead, straight teeth, etc.  You can still watch most of "Enterprise" on CBS.com.
