“Hey mister Vulcan Ears man, play a song for me...”
How 'bout this: space-faring dwarves. I can picture them with gigantic but extremely light-weight, metallic-polymer battle-axes instead of their more traditional mithril ones. Besides, for dwarves to discover an all (or at least mostly) mineral planet with a breathable atmosphere, for them that would be the ultimate dream come true!
Having actual Tolkienian elves in Trek would be interesting(not specifically Tolkien's elves but the same overall image he solidified into the genre).
"We are the Borg Cubes. You are dead."
Would have been a rather abrupt ending to the series.
A group of seven space-faring dwarves beam aboard the Enterprise, take one look at Troi, and kidnap her back to their ship so she can keep house for them, mend their clothes, and cook them soup every day. In return they build her a huge bed out of real wood, and some evil female villain comes along and poisons her for the crime of being too pretty. Unfortunately, since Deanna has already been in a physical relationship with a man (I would assume so, at any rate), it's impossible for her to be awakened by true love's first kiss. So Deanna remains dead and Picard has to find another Counselor to replace her.
The Gully Dwarves from the Dragonlance series could be fun to drop into a TNG episode. They're more innocent and childlike than regular dwarves, not that smart, but are ferocious fighters when cornered. They also can't count past two, but one of them (Bupu) is very smart. She knows there's something beyond two, and she fancies herself a mage (by waving a dead rat around and saying, "Me make magic!").
I suggest them for TNG, because the other series did have fantasy elements (the White Rabbit on the Shore Leave planet, O'Brien kept seeing Rumpelstiltskin, and there was a whole Voyager episode about Norse myths on the holodeck). Only on TNG would Picard and the crew frown and try to order them around instead of adapting to the situation to figure out how to resolve it.
