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 »

Ugly bags of mostly genius!
8 September 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Hey for anyone who hasn't seen the movie 'Earthlings', get to the nearest place showing it because its awesome! Its an amazing insight, not only for Star Trek fans, but for any movie fan. Most people on this website would know what its like to love a flick, but what happens when that obsession spills over into real life? Earthlings discusses just that, as it follows a group a people who… no joke… speak Klingon! As crazy as it sounds its for real! There's even a guy who says that he speaks only to his kid in Klingon! At times funny, at times very very worrying, 'Earthlings' is a film which has to be seen to be believed! For anyone living in London, its been shown tonight at the Prince Charles Cinema and will be shown throughout the week, so check it out!
