I couldn't decide which species is the most vicious in the Delta/Alpha quadrant. I know a few... The Borg, Kradin (or the Vori?), Hirogen, Romulans, Kazons, Species 8472, Cardassians (well most of them), Vulcans at before the Time of Awakening? Etc. Can someone elaborate with this subject?
This is Star Wars discussion, not Star Trek. =P

Kill the trekkie!
In order to Perceive a species as a whole as Vicious you have to look at why they do what they do. The Borg for instance..as a species you cannot consider them vicious..the entirety of their populous is being run buy a single mind..however linked they still bow to the will of the queen..The Queen may be vicious and forces her people to be the same. The Hirogen act on instinct mostly, they've lived for as long as any of them know as a hunting species, forever driven buy the instinct to hunt. Does that make the vicious? some will say yes i'm sure. The Romulans live a secret life, not wanting to fully involve themselves in the open affairs of the galaxy unless forced, i've never looked at the romulans as vicious but more of observers..always collecting more information. The Kazon...there is a tough one. They live a life driven by the tribe..whoever is strongest makes the rules..constantly fighting amongst themselves to gain the upper hand..in terms of what they will do to obtain the upper hand i would have to say they are closer to vicious than any of the previous races i've mentioned. Species 8472 were invaded by the borg..attacked without provocation..in all honesty everything they did was in defence of their own race..I don't consider them vicious...Powerful yes..but vicious...no.. The Cardassians are a society much like the romulans in the nature of gathering information..but more like the klingons in terms of physical prowess and ability on the battlefield, a very proud and capable people..most times their masses are misslead by corrupt leaders and the populous as a whole rarely finds out about major atrosoties until they are forced into the light..when backed into a corner or when believed to be invincable i would have the say the cardassians can be quite vicious. The Vulcans were another instinct driven race....much more like the romulans before the age of awakening. Never really looked at them as vicious tho. Anyway of the races you've mentioned i think the cardassians can be the most vicious In my opinion. However with that said i would like to mention another race you don't seemed to have mentioned.. The Sona..As a whole their race is corrupt and the measures they will take to preserver their own existence is unforgivable. Ever since i first saw them in Insurection i thought of them as vicious and unforgiving when someone is in the way of what they desire.
Wow, thanks for the insightful information!
Ehh..not insightful really...just a been a trekie for a very long time (since age 4..and i'm 24 now) so yeah 20 years..and thats just my view..but there are so many races not mentioned...The Andorians...The breen...The Founders...The Orion..the list can go on..
True. lol I guess, they did not really portray many of the species as vicious because they always show some good in them anyway.
I didn't make it!
Species 8472 were the most vicious imo. Even though they were invaded, they then declared that they would enter our space and purge the entire place.
I would have to go with the Klingons, Cardassian, Dominion or Breen. For reasons of this, simply watch the Dominion War episodes. :)
