ancient death rituals Edit
I just added a brief statement about the Klingon mummification glyph to the other rites section. I should be noted somewhere (perhaps in a background section) that when B'Elanna Torres mentioned the standard treatment of a corpse to Chakotay while discussing the Vhnori bodies they'd discovered in VOY: "Emanations", Chakotay was about to mention archeological digs on the Klingon homeworld when he was cut off by the appearance of the subspace vacuole. It may be related to the mummification glyph or some other evidence of special treatment for the dead by the Klingon. Vern4760 05:14, October 8, 2010 (UTC)
