The last weeks I watched Star Trek Voyager and I came across a very funny species with the following features: 1. They communicate with words, but they also use very exaggerated gestures while speaking. 2. They are very easy offended if someone does not use the right gestures, as their custom demands.


In this episode Neelix translates between a representant of this species and Janeway (I'm not quite sure but I think it was Janeway), because he masters their way of communicating.


If you know the episode please tell me, I would be very glad! (Otherwise I had to watch all the episodes again !)

Yes, the "Tak Tak" were very annoying. "Good health, strong body, clear mind" Lol. I believe that episode was "Macrocosm". But theres nothing wrong with watching them all again anyway.

Are you talking about the Tak Tak?  (Episode: Macrocosm)

The Taj Tak thing is pretty annoying and also brings in that tired concept of "we'll do everything in our power to kiss some species' behind and band our knee to this species' cultural quirks while they remain ruthlessly intolerant of the smallest offense from a people that have never even spoken to them before." But the Tak Tak weren't on screen very much. Not even through most of that episode. Their power to annoy is limited.

Ethics are arbitrary.

Humans. Being one of them, I know too much about us.


Blalock & Nimoy were the best two actors in the Star Trek universe. Go Vulcans!

As I said earlier, Q is the most annoying, but I'm going to add my 2nd - the Pakled.
