Until ENT, the Rigellians/Rigelians had only ever been mentioned but never seen. When they did actually appear on screen they looked nothing like Vulcans, even though it was said on several occassions that they shared similar physiologies. In TMP, there were a species of Rigellians (also called the Chelons) who were evolved from sabre-toothed turtles. In my fanfic writing, I have it that the Beta Rigel System is huge and one of the most densely populated systems in the Alpha Quadrant. About fourteen planets and two dozen moons, and in total around ten different species evolved within the system, which (though very different races) all call themselves Rigellians. Ones I use/have identified so far: Beta Rigel II -- The sabre-toothed turtle Chelons Beta Rigel IIIb (moon) -- Look mostly human, except with dark veins clearly visible. They are very genetically compatable with other species Beta Rigel V -- The pale-skinned Rigellians seen in ENT Beta Rigel VI -- Vulcanoid Beta Rigel VII -- Bronze-skinned, red-haired species (developed by TheLoneRedshirt). The Kaylar are in the minority, inhabiting a small valley Anyone else think its such a cramped place?
