Underrated Adversaries

Which potentially antagonistic race would you like to have seen pitted more against Starfleet?

For me, it would be the Breen.

Tholians. They are the most exotic alien race and, because of budget reasons, only dealt with two times. And I don't count the second time because I don't like Enterprise.

Re: Underrated Adversaries

Agree on the Orions. Should have been seen more during "Enterprise". Should have been seen during TNG, maybe as the occasional green Sterfleeter, implying that some of them, at least, were not nefarious. We heard a lot during DS9 about the "Orion Syndicate", but when we finally see them, they're a mixed bag of humans and aliens.

The Orions did quite well in Journey to Babel (considering they were up against the Hero ship), they put one of their people in the Andorian Ambassador's staff, and they attacked and damaged a starship. Against a different Captain it might have worked.

It would be interesting to see our crew against a opponent who was a business interest, or a criminal organization. Not just another anti-Federation star empire (been there, done that).

Whomever it was upon whom Balok based his false appearance. I like to imagine it an ancient enemy of the First Federation.

The Swarm. I think they could have even given the Borg a run for their money.

Oh, and the First Federation. If it were up to me, Peter Dinklage would play a Diplomat in the next movie.
