We're Still Missing a Founding Member Race

Humans, Vulcans, Andorians, Tellarites

One of these things is not like the others.

We've got plenty of the first three, so why are we still missing Tellarites?

    They're arguing about whether to license their images?

    I can’t imagine that’s the case...that should be covered under the existing licensing agreement. My guess is that we never really got any memorable Tellarites other than a couple of ambassadors. That being said, I would love to have Graal or Gav on my crew.

    I can't name a single Tellarite without consulting Memory Alpha. For that matter, I can only even think of four:

    That Tellarite That Sarek Maybe Whacked
    That Tellarite That Sato Warned Might Want to Eat Porthos
    That Tellarite Gawking at Kirk's Trial
    That Mirror Tellarite Hanging Around Mirror Sarek

    He is the one that @Travis S McClain referred to as "That Mirror Tellarite Hanging Around Mirror Sarek". :smirk:

    Yes! Would love to have Commander Loskeen (or however it's spelled).

    I was surprised I came up with That Tellarite That Sato Warned Might Want to Eat Porthos! I've only gone through ENT in its entirety once, and that was in 2016. I know there were other Tellarites who popped up from time to time, but I literally cannot recall a single one of them.

    Good, thanks. I'm on my second viewing of Discovery so I'll get there soon enough!

    That would be a great card...."Tube Stuffed Tellerite" all you would see would be the open tube and a pair of feet.

    It wasn't Shras, it was a member of his staff who was actually a surgically altered Orion

    Nah man. Enterprise Was Best! And the Tellerite that captured Archer had a whole episode of screen time. We hated him, then we sympathized with him, then we felt bad for him, then we applauded him.

    Come on. TOS was in the 60s with commensurate budgets and special effects. It was only like a decade removed from “Captain Proton” type SFX. Watch TOS on blu Ray with enhanced resolution and SFX and it’s not bad (although I’m biased because I grew up on TOS and still think Kirk is best). Or compare it to BBC Doctor Who from the same era (is that a rubber plunger on the Dalek?) and you shouldn’t be so judgmental about TOS pigs in space.
