Reapers may look all evil and crazy, but there's a good reason for that. They ARE evil and crazy!

It is not that the Angrborn always seem horrible. You get used to them. It is that they really are horrible, that being horrible is being like the Angrborn.

The Ork is mankind's oldest foe. When we first journeyed to the stars, the Orks were there to disabuse us of our naivety, and they are still here to test our courage and will to its breaking point. They are Beast that stalks the stars, the Wolf at your door, interested in nothing but destruction. Look to your weapons! Steel your hearts! The Green Tide is upon us!
Commissar Yarrick, Warhammer 40,000

Haley: Hey, wait a minute — aren't dark elves evil?
Nale: Oh, my, no. Not since they became a player race. Now the whole species consists of nothing but Chaotic Good rebels, yearning to throw off the reputation of their evil kin.
Haley: Evil kin? Didn't you just say they were all Chaotic Good?
Nale: Details.

I tried to talk. I want you to remember that. I tried to reach out, I tried to understand you, but I think that you understand us perfectly. And I think that you just don't care. And I don't know whether you are here to invade, infiltrate or just replace us. I don't suppose it really matters now. You are monsters! That is the role you seem determined to play, so it seems that I must play mine.
The Doctor, Doctor Who ("Flatline")

"Fighting the soldiers of other nations on the field was a duty of all men, but the Mongols were different. They did not want to conquer to rule in the stead of the nobility, they wanted to annihilate everything different to them, to destroy civilization, to destroy and rape and kill and nothing else. They were war for the sake of war, a pestilence upon the world, and Gawain saw their deaths not as the honourable meeting of foes, but the extermination of a potentially lethal pest."
Narration, A Scotsman In Egypt

Is it possible for any creature, any living being, to be inherently evil? Such an assertion may itself facilitate the committing of evil acts. By viewing any person as inherently evil, we take away his ability to be anything else. All actions are seen as being motivated by the individual's evil. Even acts of kindness are questioned, and assumed to have ulterior motives. Thus the person is never rewarded for behaving properly. Similarly, by defining a person as evil we also give that person free rein to behave as he will. After all, he is not responsible for his evil nature and thus he feels no compunction to behave properly.
Ansolm Haas, The Isolation of Evil — an epigraph from Van Richten's Guide to the Created (Ravenloft sourcebook).

The plot involves war between the humans and the Kilrathi, who have refused all offers of peace and wish only to be targets in the crosshairs of video computer screens. Indeed, according to a Web page, they hope to "destroy the universe," which seems self-defeating.

In The Undiscovered Country, Colonel Worf was a minor character portrayed as the only sane man in an insane blood-thirsty world. In Rules of Engagement, Chpok justifies his profession by treating it as another form of military conflict, referring to the court room as a “battlefield.” Judgment is the first time that an episode has really explored what it must be like to be a Klingon who doesn’t wield a weapon. David A. Goodman’s script is wryly aware of this...When Kolos suggests that the warriors have come to dominate other social classes, Archer seems surprised. “There are other classes?” he ponders, in a wonderful line-reading from Bakula that suggests irony with just a kernel of honesty buried somewhere.

Riker and Troi browse the 24th-century version of Wikipedia for stuff on the Head-Staplers. Evidently, fifty years prior they conquered two races and integrated them into their culture as a labor class. Their ships are equipped with banned weapons, and it appears they're drug dealers. Also, they roast babies and serve them with a nice lemon-tarragon sauce. Troi speaks for everyone when she asks why the Federation is involved with a bunch of drugged-up plastic surgery addicts who probably think a fifteen-day waiting period on handgun purchases is too much of a hassle.

Mike: They act like giant space alien sailors. BUT. They are part of a company, or a corporation. They don't have the "guys in suits" kind of business mentality; they have more of a warrior mentality. Which, right off the bat—
Jay: Doesn't work.
Mike: —is the wrong approach...And John Travolta wants to move back to Psychlovania? Psychlo Homeworld? And have a fancy house, and a wife/wives and be rich, but he's stuck in this shit-ass job where he has to watch over this planet being mined. And then the Fat Guy, for no reason, in a really awkward scene that goes on forever... seems to enjoy telling John Travolta that he's gotta stay there. And everyone's angry all the time. Everyone's angry.
