^^ What I meant was the Enterprise
crew were indeed surprised to encounter Mudd again in "I, Mudd."
I know they had thought of trying to bring certain characters back, but I'm rather glad it didn't pan out that way because the series was better for it. I agree and I'm so glad we got Michael Ansara as Kang. The only character I could have done without was Koloth. I think Kor would have rocked in "The Trouble With Tribbles" and we wouldn't have had a soft Klingon.
