Re: The Shran Appreciation Consortium Runs From No One

I thought I should show our favourite Andorian a little love. He is a bad-ass, but not 24/7:

And Shran very quickly taught the little girl a racial slur as she called archer "pinkskin" without hesitation. :P

Re: The Shran Appreciation Consortium Runs From No One

It's not really a racial slur, is it? Archer sure never took it that way and Shran wasn't actually racist against humans. In time it became more of a nickname for Archer than anything else.

Racial slur? Call a black guy blackskin and see how he takes it.

It is a racial slur. I'll agree it's use affetionately and there is no hatred between the two though.

That's really not the same kind of situation, though.

I must have missed it in the series...but why is Shran's daughter green?

Because she's half (or three-quarters, if you're a Trek Lit reader) Aenar.

Re: The Shran Appreciation Consortium Runs From No One

IMO, he really is the best character depicted on Enterprise. The writers blew it when they decided to make Klingons the first and primary rival antagonists on the show. The Andorians would have offered a much better scenario giving them a chance to make a REAL story arc about a rival race who's at odds with the Vulcans, and trying to end what they see as a military alliance between them and humans. I would love to have seen how long-time enemies go from 100% hostility to eventual allies over time.

Instead, we got:

Klingons again
Future guy
Spongebob Squarepants, the species a.k.a. the Suliban
Dr. Puffer Fish-face
Aliens of the week
Xindi
Detox gel
TOS movie era-looking Romulan BoPs?..and with cloaks?
Time Travel again

...sigh...

Re: The Shran Appreciation Consortium Runs From No One

I was under the impression that Klingons were barely even interested in Earth and that region, at least for Enterprise era. I felt like the only power that Earth came into conflict early on were Romulans. Suliban too, but they were pretty much a product of temporal cold war and I also thought that their mysterious benefactor was actually a Romulan anyway.

Tholians would've made a nice appearance or Gorn, unfortunately they were mostly restricted to mirror universe.

And from little I've seen of DS9, Shran made a pretty good Dominion bad guy.
I regretted not seeing him in mirror universe episodes, but after I recently read Age of the Empress, I understood why.

Re: The Shran Appreciation Consortium Runs From No One

More love for Shran (and Jeffrey Combs). He has more charisma than many Enterprise regulars, and he nails the balance between bad-ass and funny guy.

And he has a very sexy voice.

I think that video proves that any pair can be 'shipped.

I await the inevitable Gorn-T'Pol pairing.
