A thought has just this minute occured to me.
Ensign/Lieutenant Vilix'pran, whose overactive buds have been mentioned a few times through the series, could he be Betelgeusian?
When Jake babysat for him, he had to make sure the infants wings didn't get tangled up, and in the production notes for TMP the Betelgeusians were said to have evolved from 'leopard-eagles' I believe they put it.
Anyone got any thoughts?
