Yeah Ewoks would have to be basically evolved Wolverines to pull off their shenanigans.

FACT: Ewoks are reincarnated Wolverines.

Remember the episode where Picard was on Risa and the tiny little jap jew ferengi was supposed to be intimidating?

It was amazing

i thought Ferengi were stronger, just not warriors most the time.

Nope, normal strength.

Only race confirmed stronger than humans were Vulcans and the Romulans are (possibly)
stronger too, seeing as how close they are to Vulcans.

Aren't Kilngons stronger than humans on average without being so strong that a human couldn't potentially beat one in a fistfight?  Like the average Klingon is essentially a very strong human while a very strong Klingon would be slightly superhuman?

Nah, Klingons vary in the same manner as humans do. You have the occasional
"strong" Klingon like Worf for example, but in general they're the same as humans.

In a sense, that's what makes them even to humans, in a purely physical
strength sense. Physiologically speaking they are tougher than humans.

I think Klingons are stronger than humans on average. I can't see Kirk being manhandled by another human the way Kruge manhandled him in Star Trek III. Well, maybe if it was John Matrix or someone like that, but Kruge was played by Christopher Lloyd FFS.

I still think there's good reason to think Ferengi are weaker than humans on average. Probably best not to put too much stock into anything said in their first appearance, considering the original concept was very different from the direction they were taken in subsequently.

Another humanoid race I'd strongly suspect were weaker than humans on average would be the Talosians from the TOS pilot. They were primarily focused on their mental development and looked very frail physically.
