    So, will Dee Bradley Baker be the first actor to be appearing in both Star Wars and Star Trek at the same time?

    This is the first appearance of a Brikar outside of the novels correct?

    He really does look far more like a Talaxian than a Tellarite. But did they actually confirm that it's the Delta Quadrant, or did we just jump to that conclusion? I forget. Given that half of them are familiar species (including the Brikar from Peter David's Starfleet Academy and New Frontier books), that suggests an Alpha/Beta setting.

    Nice to see them finally following up on Medusans, though this means what I established about Medusans in The Higher Frontier is likely to get contradicted....

    The only thing I could find was Simon Pegg appearing in The Force Awakens (in a minor role) between Into Darkness and Beyond. Not sure if that counts as "the same time".
    There was also a New Frontier comic that tied into the novels, but apart from that I think it's the first appearance of Brikar outside that area. Certainly the first canon apperance.

    I thought they did confirm Delta Quadrant, but I assume it takes place on the bit of the Delta quadrant close to the Beta Border. That would give them free reign to use species from both sides. We know they are close enough for a Starfleet ship to have gotten abandoned there (assuming no long distance travel anomalies were involved).

    I am BUZZING that the Brikar from Peter David's New Frontier novels are part of this. That's awesome.

    Kari Wahlgren does a couple of voices in Lower Decks, and while she hasn't done anything for Bad Batch (yet), she has done work on three different Star Wars games in the past six months.

    Yes and as a longtime New Frontier fan, I'm very happy to see a Brikar in this series!

    Probably the best news for this series thus far. Amazing pull.

    Does Trek have to pay royalties if they use a race you invented in later stories (similar to how they have to for characters)?

    Yep, confirmed on First Contact Day.

    I'm not too concerned about the species mix though. We still don't know how the ship with the Janeway hologram got there either. And it could be a part of the Delta Quadrant closer to the Beta Quadrant than most of what we've seen. I'll wait to worry about it until we have more plot details.

    Nope, tie-in novel contracts are strictly work-for-hire. Whatever we create is the property of CBS/Paramount/whatever they're currently called. We get royalties for the sale of copies of our books, and that's it. Any concepts or characters we create under contract to them belong to them, not to us, and they can do whatever they want with them.

    Not using more known species in the last season of Voyager was a big miss by the writers. If you add together all the data on how far they went, they really ought to have been in the Beta quadrant by the end. So I'm glad to see some overlap here.

    Well, first off, at the end, they were not quite to the Delta-Beta border. Second, it was the opposite border of the Beta Quadrant from the one Federation space straddles, still 25-30,000 light years away from the territory where you'd expect to find familiar species.

    Well, we were completely off the mark here. :lol:

    I'm thrilled to be completely wrong. :lol:

    I knew it was a Tellarite, but the Medusan is unexpected!

    How can Jankom Pog be a Tellarite? All the visual features point towards Talaxian: the orange skin with pebble-like darker pigmentation, the pointed ears, the clefted nose, the mohawk/whisker-beard combination.
