I wondered about Nahrat too. I sort of imagined he was in there somewhere, and this was how some of the Horta (including him) ended up in Starfleet.
At first I was expecting Slider Dan to be revealed as Naraht at the end, but Naraht's introduction in "My Enemy, My Ally" doesn't suggest such a well-established rapport between Spock, Kirk and Naraht, simply that they "knew" his Mother. So leaving Naraht as the unnamed fifth member of Star Clan provides a bit of distance. A name drop at the end would have been fun, but I'm content that it was left open to fan interpretation.
