Alien races you would like to have seen expanded upon?

Alien races you would like to have seen expanded upon?
One thing I dont like with startrek is the alien of the week menality were they meet a cool alien and move on never to revist them. In some cases ok fine but there were some really cool aliens I would have loved to see be expanded on.

For me:

Tamarians: I would love to see what develped after first contact with them.

Sheliak: Who were they? They seemed far diffrent from the useal humanoid aliens we get.

The aliens from schisms: Why were they abducting people? Again who were they?

The unkown aliens from ENT fight or flight: Who were they? Why were they havesting the fluids of the dead crew?

For me... I guess, some of the UFP races they made up for TMP. There's some information about them but they were never expanded upon.

The impression I got was that they were abducting Enterprise crew members to study our universe. Remember that they were trying to create a small pocket of their universe in ours but were having difficulty. Perhaps they thought that experimenting on humans would help them devise a better method of crossing over.

Re: Alien races you would like to have seen expanded upon?

There was a plan to use the Kzinti (from TAS' "Slaver Weapon") in an episode of Enterprise. I'm just guessing that Larry Niven gave his OK to do that. The episode would have been called "Kilkenny Cats". They even gave a rendering of what a Kzinti ship looks like. I always wondered what this episode would have been like....

Side note: The 'cat dancer' from ST V was supposed to be a Kzinti female, I think. That's what some backstage material said - she was referred to as a "Kzinretti" which is the official term (in Niven's 'Known Space') for Kzinti women.

Definitely. It's surprising that we've never seen one given how much trouble they caused the Federation.

Re: Alien races you would like to have seen expanded upon?

So many missed opportunities to expand the startrek lore

A good idea for a book would be to write a dscription of diffrent races from the point of view from starfleet inteligance or the diplomatic core.

Or a tie in novel about a survey ship that goes in after the Enterprise leaves to continue the work...

I always liked the Talarians from Suddenly Human. A warrior like culture that wasn't a complete parody and not generic bad guys. Even the two different types of ships they used in that episode were quite obviously from the same construction mindset.

Re: Alien races you would like to have seen expanded upon?

Wasn't there also supposed to be a return of the Vaadwaur in a future VOY episode?

As for DS9's Hunters, I believe the plan was that they and the Tosk are members of the Dominion. Notice how much the Tosk look like 'prototype' Jem'Hadar? They even have exactly the same 'shrouding' ability. Reportedly both the Tosk and the Jem'Hadar were created from the same 'original' race (the Hunters are the navigators/trackers of the Dominion, and the Tosk were basically given to them by the Founders as gifts).

A Hunter was even supposed to take the helm of the Defiant (while piloting it to the Founders' homeworld) in "Broken Link" but for some reason this was changed to a Jem'Hadar at the last minute.

This is a great idea! I'd include a color atlas, too. It would be a great way to see what the lesser known races of Star Trek look like.

It's not clear. They were last seen escaping into the subspace corridors, so they could have returned.

I would like to beleive that but old startrek is dead

It will be all about JJTrek now and Im thinking he will concentrate only on the well known trek aliens due to his "casual Audience " focus.....
