Yeah, that's because they suck.

Malcorians - It would have been really interesting to see more about a culture on the verge of warp, to see if they ever did venture out and make first contact.

Ocampa. I'd really like to see what happened to them without the Caretaker.

They were considered useful enough to be a big part of Star Trek Online.

Actually, I'm sure you don't agree with that.

Oh, they can have their uses. They also used them in Armada II. But I found the invention of a "more powerful than the Borg" species for "Scorpion" to be contrived and boring. My opinion, as usual.

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

Heh, the last line of Dragon's Teeth:

Janeway "I think we'll be seeing them again."

Writers: "Nope!"

I'm glad they didn't bring back the Vadwar. The idea for the Vadwar could have worked but it was poorly executed. It was the sort of thing that might have worked if the show was more serialized and we had already gotten some historical priming.

I think what would have been awesome is to see what happened to the Vidiians after the phage was cured. To see them pay the price for centuries of harvesting people's organs as they're trying to rebuild their once-Federation like society.

Species 8472 were awesome.

Oh wait. In The Flesh exists. Nevermind, they suck.

Andorians - I'd love to have the 4 sexes made canon.

Bolian - You see them everywhere, but we don't know that much about them.

Ocampa - Post-Caretaker would be pretty interesting to look into.

Sheliak - An interesting species we unfortunately never got to see again.

I've always loved the Breen. Wouldn't have minded more on screen stuff about them. The novels do a good job of expanding their backstory.

Odo's people they were mysterious and it would've been interesting find out more of their history before they founded the dominion in the gamma quadrant.

Went back to the Gamma quadrant and lived happly ever after :P Well until the dominion found another race to try and crush

As the delta quadrant races well I understand leaveing there back stroy behind as voyager was traveling through space to get home and didnt have the time to stop. Voyager is the only series were I think the alien of the week worked.

And I played startrek online I never made the conenction! Now it makes sense who those aliens are! I love them they give me the creeps! I watched the orignal TNG episode when I was 6 and it gave me nighmares for a week!

It would have been nice to revisit the Bandi as well and maybe show the correctly rebuilt Farpoint Station as per Picard's instruction.
