Something old. Something new. Something borrowed. Something blue.

Re: What aliens should they have met in season 5?

I wonder if they even could've used the Kzinti. Wouldn't there have been some kind of copyright problem since they weren't originally concieved for Trek and I don't see Paramount ponying up the necessary fees to make it happen, especially with a not-so-successful show like ENT.

Re: What aliens should they have met in season 5?

Seeing a picture of Frank Gorshin as Bele makes me think they COULD do someone from Cheron. Maybe only a non-Starfleet character like Phlox or Shran (for continuity's sake) has a run-in them at some alien port. Maybe they get killed in a scuffle with some badguy.


I actually had an idea how they could show a Talosian: Valdore (whom I think they need to bring back anyway to justify how he earned a ship being named after him) kidnaps Archer or Trip on some planet. Valdore's also abducted an individual from Talos IV and won't send them back until they cooperate. He makes the Talosian create illusions in order to trick Archer/Trip/whoever into giving up some Starfleet secrets. (Of course the main characters never SEE a Romulan and may or may not see the Talosian) Might be a nice touch if they cast a woman in the role, but dubbed their lines over with a man, as in TOS.

Re: What aliens should they have met in season 5?

Wasn't one of the hired thugs that captured Phlox in "Affliction" one of the half-white/half-back Cheron people?

As for the Romulans, I'm certain a few of the main characters would have met them and learned their secret, but then been sworn to secrecy for some reason or other. It already happened to Captain April and George Kirk in the 80's novel Final Frontier.

How about something completely new and original?

This. As much as I like the fourth season, it was a 'TOS fanwank, cruise around the neighbourhood' season and its best episodes are not coincidentally the Vulcan and the Babel three-parter, genuine 22nd century stuff.
The fifth season couldn't have continued along these lines and would have had to focus more on actual deep-space exploration. The emerging conflict with the Romulans would have automatically brought the Enterprise back home.

Re: What aliens should they have met in season 5?

While the Ferengi episode was fun and the Borg episode was surprisingly good after plenty of lackluster VOY stories I consider the Nausicaans to be the only 24th century aliens who really fitted into the show.

I thought so, but there was nothing on Memory Alpha. So I finally checked "Affliction" and AHA! There he was.

...then he moved and I saw it was a trick of the light

Supposedly a Rigellian IIRC. Trouble is, which numbered planet in that system?

Same race of alien who urged Malcolm to meet that pair of butterfly dancers in "Broken Bow", I'd imagine.

Coridans* differed a bit between their humanoid appearance in "Shadows of P'Jem" and that delegate who turned up in "Demons" wearing somekind of spikey facemask or breathing apparatus.

Like Rigel, a few different species who live in that system, maybe go by the same name.

*A system being argued over in TOS "Journey to Babel".

They kinda did that with the Suliban and the Xindi, plus many other aliens of the week. Anyway, Enterprise shouldn't have been too much about finding NEW (to the audience) worlds and aliens (TOS, TNG, and Voyager were better suited for that). Enterprise should be about discovering the familiar and it became part of the world of the other shows.
