It’s not true that Klingons did not have bathrooms aboard their spacecraft!

The Klingons did in fact have a method for eliminating bodily waste on the ship–it was much like the holes cut into projections over the sea, in old Earthly wooden sailing ships. You sat on a bench and did your business into the sea. (that was for officers. I think the sailors used chamberpots and had to dump it to leeward.) The problem with the Klingon system is, there’s vacuum outside. So after opening the covers on the holes, they’d quickly turn and get sucked onto the hole, with painful rapidity and force, and their was then rump exposed to the extremes of space. Getting off the elimination hole was difficult due to the suction and one usually lost some skin. But the Klingons felt that it was a sign of TOUGHNESS, of Klingon fierceness. So a few of the smaller Klingons got sucked into space, what of it?

So all the crew had lost most of the skin on their rumps–what of it? Coward! What is it to be a warrior? To pooh into space is to mock its dangers, its darkness!
