How ærefuldt er Klingon-forskere betragtet af Klingons samfund?

35

Forskere er afgørende for Klingon-kulturen; uden dem ville de ikke have været i stand til at blive det rumfangende imperium, de er. Men med en kultur baseret på kamp-ære, hvor hæderlige er Klingon-forskere i Klingons samfund?

I Enterprise: en opfattelse om, at ære kun kan tjene gennem krigsførelse :

ARCHER: There are other classes?

KOLOS: You didn't believe all Klingons were soldiers?

ARCHER: I guess I did.

KOLOS: My father was a teacher. My mother, a biologist at the university. They encouraged me to take up the law. Now all young people want to do is take up weapons as soon as they can hold them. They're told there's honour in victory, any victory. What honour is there in a victory over a weaker opponent? Had Duras destroyed that ship he would have been lauded as a hero of the Empire for murdering helpless refugees. We were a great society not so long ago, when honour was earned through integrity and acts of true courage, not senseless bloodshed.

Denne holdning forbliver fremherskende århundreder senere. Ifølge Beverly Crusher i TNG: Misforståelser , hendes indtryk er at klingonforskere stadig er set i et dårligt lys:

BEVERLY : Kurak was a warp field specialist on the Klingon Homeworld. I don't think Klingons regard scientists very highly... she always seemed a little defensive.
