Are human rights something every sentient species has, no matter what species they are? Do all human beings have the same human rights, to begin with? We commonly think of human rights as an absolute; a universal set of laws which apply to every human being -no matter which culture they identify with. We know that Klingon culture is different; we accept that we ought not judge Klingon social mores by Federation standards. Conversely, we expect human culture to be homogeneous.
