I'd love to see some Andorians. Loved in ENT how they had the antennae undulate with their emotions.

Aren't Caitians tied up in some legal mumbo-jumbo?

Since they made it into Star Trek Online, I don't think there's a problem with them. I think maybe the Kzinti is what you're talking about, because they crossed over from Niven's Known Space continuity.

Re: Will we ever see proper Trek races?

I admit I'd rather see them spend some time on pre-existing TOS and TMP aliens rather than spamming new ones. I'm fine if they want to re-image them. Although the Caitians were a bit unimaginative and crap, I guess I can't have my cake and eat it. Totally down with more Andorians.

Meh. I got my fill of Andorians and Tellarites in Enterprise. I'd definitely like to see more of Science Officer 0718 in the next movie though.

Is he the cyborg? I've never really understood Trek's aversion to cyborgs (Picard notwithstanding) but I get a bit nervous about them moving away from it. Mind you we had how many hundreds of intelligent androids in TOS and yet they still tried to sell Data as amazing and unique.

I definitely didn't have my fill of Andorians. Would have loved to see Shran as a member of the crew in season 5.

You can never have enough Andorians

I've had my fill of humans in ST. With modern makeup and SFX, the reboot really missed out on a chance to show us a Starfleet that demographically represented the Federation. 150+ member worlds, and still over 80% human.

I hope to see some improper aliens: Smooth head Klingons and Ridged Trills.

Seen: Romulans, Vulcans, Orions, Klingons, Tribbles, Caitians (humanized)

Mentioned: Cardassians, Andorians, Gorn


That's enough "proper" races for me.

I caught the others, but when did they mention Andorians in ST09 or STID?

^McCoy talks to Kirk about "a case of Andorian shingles" in the shuttle at the Riverside shipyard, when they take off for the Academy.
