Klingons/Predators invisibility

Postby GrahamB on Wed Nov 24, 2021 12:22 am

There's a new Predator sequel coming out called Prey

Which got me thinking - if Predator are this honour (British spelling)-based culture, then why is their chief weapon invisibility? It's kind of a cowardly power.

Same thing with Klingons. Heavily honour-based warrior culture who..... hide so nobody can see them...?

No honor in war. "All's fair" and all that.

invisibility must help with "entice into emptiness" since the space seems empty

Honor is for equals, e.g. other warriors, not for the prey.

Good point. It works for Predators, but not for Klingons though...
