    That ambassador had a romantic passion to him when he talked about a crime of passion. Shran was just plain irate.

    I remember as a kid that Ambassador Shran (as played by Reggie Nalder, who went on to play the awesome Mr.Barlow in Salem's Lot) scared the Beejesus out of me just by his one scene with Kirk!!! :ack:

    I guess that's the difference between first seeing it as a kid and first seeing it as an adult.

    I liked how Ambassador Shran had an accent with underscored the idea that English wasn’t his native language.

    Two. I assume the same extra was repositioned and changed jumpsuits to be the second Tellarite corpse?

    The Frankenstein alien is with an Andorian in both shots not a Tellarite it seems to me!

    I think he's saying the 'Frankenstein' alien is the Tellarite. I don't see it, myself.

    Also, Tellarites in TOS were uniformly depicted with Two fingers (using gloves, of course) instead of the four like everyone else. Something ENT abandoned, much to my dismay.

    Various books hold that Tellarites are great engineers. I love that. Great engineers, with those hoof hands? :guffaw:

    The FASA ST roleplaying game says they are good diplomats because they love to argue - obviously derived from Sareks line in "Journey to Babel".
