Was anyone else expecting some big reveal with the Breen?

    Welcome to the Trek BBS @the fly one!

    You probably didn't notice, but this thread has been inactive for over four years. As a rule we ask members not to resurrect a thread if it has been dormant for more than a year. In future if you see an old thread like this that you'd like to discuss feel free to create a new thread and link back to any relevant content from the old thread if necessary.

    Having said that, as a new member of our community you can't be expected to know all the rules yet so I'll leave this thread open for now.

    Happy posting! :)

    They were all clones of Carrie Fisher under those helmets. ;)

    Breen were too late in the game for a big reveal to really have impact.

    I was hoping we would find out what a Breen looked liked too...

    I always thought it would have been funny if they were revealed to look like mere humans, the helmets being just a way to scare others.

    Did Weyoun even know what they looked like? That said there was a good video on YouTube about the Breen and speculating what they could've been like given it is specified they don't have blood.

    Agreed, TPTB. Everyone knows that "they've Breen there, done that" with other enemy species and with all the shows in development or on air, they didn't want to overload things or keep them as a standby in the event the Dominion or 8472 or the giant mutant strawberry monsters didn't enthrall the viewers. Oh wait, that last one didn't make it to Trek either. Pity... CKandyman would make a fun crossover... :D

    They were hinting toward a reveal, but never got around to it. The Breen were kind of disappointing, a stock villain who we couldn't see or understand. I wonder if they had something in mind, but the end of Season 7 was just too busy to put it on the screen, or if they really had nothing in mind that would have been interesting enough to be worth the screen time.
