Re: Klingon Martial Art
Yann, naughty, the argument was all w.r.t. a personal combat weapon, akin to outmoded pole-arms, but I'll bite anyway.
1. & 2. : I think you'll find they were postulated by credible scientists who also just happened to write sci-fi, rather than soap-opera hacks
3. [geek mode] your mixing up the bene-gesserit wierding way with adaptions to knife fighting with kinetic shields, shame on you
As regards combat robots... I think a decent martial artist should win hands down against these so far as I believe they're proving to be rather crap as combatives. Also, as the only ones I've heard of still need a human operator, so I'd actually classify these as combat waldos rather than robots. [/geek mode]
