Execellent, Masao!

Why does M'ress always get all the attention, though? where's the love for Arex and Edoans?
Because she's cute, and fuzzy, and sexy, and cute, and adorable, and a kitty cat.

Re: Who created M'Ress?

Fine, she's a cute girl in a cat-suit. We all like those, of course. But Arex was an actual alien-looking alien. Or at least more so than we usually saw amongst Starfleet personnel. That's gotta count for something, right?

Re: Who created M'Ress?

I keep hoping that the writers on the "Big Bang Theory" will make Leonard and Penny Furrie fetishists whereby she dresses up as M'ress - that would be so very, very super-nova hot!

Brb, I gotta go get my inhaler.

Well there is still the chance that that alien on the Kelvin bridge was a member of Arex's race.

True, there is that. Only two arms, though, so probably not.

The chest area is obscured often enough. Or they have two and three arm subraces.

Was she an only child, or one of a litter?
If we accept the bio originally sold through LE and reprinted at Danhauser's site (linked on the previous page), then M'Ress has at least three "litter-mates".

Their family units are extremely close. M'Ress's other three litter mates also serve in Starfleet in various capacities.
Alan Dean Foster actually provided names for these siblings and her parents in the Log novels. (I had jotted them down a years ago for "quick" reference, but Mogg only knows where I left that slip of paper.) She either has 1 sister and 2 brothers, or maybe 2 sisters and a single brother; I'm not sure. But I do know all three were not the same gender. Foster also implied M'ress was the eldest since her "Mater" (the term ADF used) stated they "looked up to her as something of a role model.

Oh, Christopher, thanks for your input. It does sound reasonable. Is Stephen Kandel still alive? It would be interesting to get his feedback.

Sincerely,

Bill

Nope. Alnschloss K'Bentayr was a Monchezkean, according to behind-the-scenes material. And I see little resemblance to Edoans/Edosians.

As far as Memory Alpha and IMDb are aware, yes.

I have to admit Arex always creeped me out. The arm coming out of his chect and gauntish features gave me the heebie-jeebies (made me want to donate money to TAS so they could bring back Chekov).

I did these for one of Kail Tescar's TAS comics a few years ago.

At Star Trek: Phase II starting at the 7 minute mark of this video...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9JzEx...ayer_embedded#!

Even if we don't see him or his species in the next movie, I personally feel that Greg Schnitzer and the rest of the production crew of Phase II have done the Edoan admirable justice!

Incidentally, in the thread that showcased this preview, I asked Greg Schnitzer if there might be the slightest chance in h3ll that M'Ress might get a glimpsing cameo in a future production. I presented my query with post # 88 found on page 6 of that thread.

http://www.trekbbs.com/showthread.php?t=184286&page=6

It started with a reserved, "Well it would be gimmicky," but by page 8, other fellows associated with the production were pondering the technical aspects. That does NOT necessarily mean they will do it, but the feedback was a bit more positive than a "Get the ^&*% outa' here, you freak!"

Sincerely,

Bill

Re: Who created M'Ress?

Arex is probably the most devout Christian of all the extraterrestrials portrayed in TREK, even more than the Children of the Sun from BREAD&CIRCUSES.

Why?

Because he can turn the other cheek, and then turn ANOTHER cheek (ba-dum-DUM.)

(Okay, it's ba-dum-DUMB, but I couldn't resist.)
