    A CGI Medusan would have been interesting, how would you depict a being who's very appearance drives people insane? Something out of Lovecraft perhaps?

    Get Lady Gaga's agent on the phone...I think we've got a role for her.

    ^ With her resent weight gain, I don't think she'll fit in the little travel box.

    That's not very nice. :wtf:

    Anyway, we don't necessarily have to SEE the Medusans. Some box with whose contents glow (like a Bajoran orb) which we never see from the opener's POV.

    No need to have such a heart of stone...a Horta episode would rock. I know this to be very concrete. It would cement that race for all time. It should be plastered all over.

    Are you saying MLB that if the horta had shown up in season 5 it would have become a rock star?

    From Boulder, Colorado. It would be the quarry of fans all over.

    I dunno, I think I'm a bit jaded on the TOS aliens.

    Salt Vampires. A race of Trip's bead babies. Silurians. Bolians!

    I wonder if they even could've used the Kzinti. Wouldn't there have been some kind of copyright problem since they weren't originally concieved for Trek and I don't see Paramount ponying up the necessary fees to make it happen, especially with a not-so-successful show like ENT.

    Seeing a picture of Frank Gorshin as Bele makes me think they COULD do someone from Cheron. Maybe only a non-Starfleet character like Phlox or Shran (for continuity's sake) has a run-in them at some alien port. Maybe they get killed in a scuffle with some badguy.


    I actually had an idea how they could show a Talosian: Valdore (whom I think they need to bring back anyway to justify how he earned a ship being named after him) kidnaps Archer or Trip on some planet. Valdore's also abducted an individual from Talos IV and won't send them back until they cooperate. He makes the Talosian create illusions in order to trick Archer/Trip/whoever into giving up some Starfleet secrets. (Of course the main characters never SEE a Romulan and may or may not see the Talosian) Might be a nice touch if they cast a woman in the role, but dubbed their lines over with a man, as in TOS.

    Wasn't one of the hired thugs that captured Phlox in "Affliction" one of the half-white/half-back Cheron people?

    As for the Romulans, I'm certain a few of the main characters would have met them and learned their secret, but then been sworn to secrecy for some reason or other. It already happened to Captain April and George Kirk in the 80's novel Final Frontier.

    This. As much as I like the fourth season, it was a 'TOS fanwank, cruise around the neighbourhood' season and its best episodes are not coincidentally the Vulcan and the Babel three-parter, genuine 22nd century stuff.
    The fifth season couldn't have continued along these lines and would have had to focus more on actual deep-space exploration. The emerging conflict with the Romulans would have automatically brought the Enterprise back home.
