Trivia

"Ugly Bags of Mostly Water" refers to a particular Star Trek episode where the Microbrains describe human beings as extremely unattractive - just "ugly bags of mostly water". See more »

Goofs

The author stated publicly that the title "Ugly Bags of Mostly Water" was one of the disparaging terms that Klingons used for humans within the fictional Star Trek Universe. This is incorrect.

The term was used once on a single episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation ("Home Soil") by a microscopic crystal alien race that takes over the ship's computer, never by Klingons.

As a fictional humanoid species that are capable of having offspring with humans, Klingons (presumably) are roughly 60% water, just like humans. See more »

Astonishing

This movie is cool. I got an advance copy of the DVD, and I never thought I'd like it, but its so compulsive. By the end of the film, i didn't think twice about sprinting to the nearest bookstore to try and learn Klingon. I was a bit disappointed about the range in my local bookstore, but I wrote this review to cheer myself up. The man who only wanted his child to speak Klingon is not even the weirdest guy they interviewed. Obsessions have never been so awesome. In years to come this movie will be huge. People worldwide will be quoting it soon. Marc Okrand is a legend. He taught Spock to speck Vulcan. I wish i could say something like that.
