    This provides a convenient connection to ENT since Pike's ship might not have been the first Starfleet ship named Enterprise Pelia spent time on.

    If I was a writer on the show, I'd have her say, "This is actually the fourth ship named Enterprise I have served on" just to make the fans go into apoplexy.

    That'd be easy to accept. She was on board Pike's Ent, Archer's Ent, the World War II CV-6 Ent, and also she was on board the CVN-65 Enterprise when Chekov and Uhura snuck on board to steal precious photons. ;)

    There's also the XCV-330 Enterprise with the Vulcan-style ring that predated the NX-01.

    She also could have served on CVN-80, which is currently under construction.

    I don't see why not.

    Neither real people nor well-written characters generally speak pedantically.

    Fuck, maybe they're all descendants of Flint. He seemed like a pretty randy dude. :lol:

    She could pop up in the 24th century.

    My inner fanboy would like to see an episode set in the 2180s featuring Pelia and the NX-01 crew.

    For Witch Star Trek already did that, they are called the Magans.

    And folks Spock said her species moved among OTHER humans, that means Lanthinites are a human species, just not of Homo Sapiens.

    In Trek, "human" may be a term used to describe a number of identical-looking species across the Galaxy, but "Terran" could be used to specifically describe humans from Earth.

    I wish. I've seen younger photos of Carol Kane and... :luvlove:

    That being said, this isn't that other star franchise, meaning they don't do deepfakes. So if we get younger Pelia she's just going to be some younger blonde actress with a passing resemblance to Carol.

    If they evolved on Earth they wouldn't be aliens from our perspective.

    When were Romulans on Earth prior to First Contact?

    Even with Star Trek: Enterprise, there are gaps in human spaceflight history post Cochrane. Sure you could fit in a handful of Enterprises, like the Ringship Enterprise that's already been mentioned.

    Or, it's one line of dialogue that may have been careless and future weeks will reveal a different origin. We'll have to wait and see.

    Pelia chose to hang out on Earth because an old travel guide described it as "mostly harmless."
    :shifty:

    "Lanthanite" makes me think of Atlantis. Probably a coincidence.
