When will we see the Hur'q?
 
I was hoping someday the Hur'q would make an appearance on STO so we Klingons can get a little payback. If they do I am also curious as to what Cryptic will make them look like. Looking on the web the description ranges from humanoids with horns to antlike creatures. If the make them antlike they need to pattern them after the jack jumper ant. There's no more vile tempered insect in the world than a jack jumper, the black and orange coloration of this insect would be cool too.

As they are technically extinct in canon, probably never. :)

i thought the hur'q where former gorn hegemony subject/client races?

but yea, getting insectoids and other more exotic aliens would be interesting.
even if the 'preservers' panspermia'd the galaxy there are bound to be species they didnt seed, the changlings and the bugs from conspiracy for example.

There is a new insect race in LoR - based on the winged insect pic we saw on the LoR website. It looks like they have insect-looking ships too.

I concur. Let's bring back the Hur'q so we can show them how we kick ass Klingon style. :cool:

Villains never die, they always find a way to return from their graves. Or maybe the Hur'q aren't dead, maybe they're like the 17 yr cicada lying dormant until its time to crawl out of the ground and threaten the galaxy once more.

The Iconians were extinct in canon as well. Hasn't stopped STO. It would be interesting for the Hur'q to turn up. Their descendands in the Invasion game were insectoids, so I imagine them being something similar.

I'm not sure when they'll reintroduce the Hur'q, Magnumstar, but in an KDF centric episode seems likely.

As to what they look like: well I'm sure Cryptic would follow Star Trek: Invasion's vision of their appearence.
Perhaps not to letter though, for copyright reasons. But like the Ferasans and Kzinti- they should be similar.

Although I'd like them more like this picture, as a mixture of both a fly an a scarab: so as to be quite revolting.
That or more of a basis on a hybrid appearence between the giant weta and the cannibalistic mormon cricket.

I thought they were just mere animals for upcoming ground content?
They look too Disney/WoW in my view to actually be a serious sentient species.
Reminds me of the epohh or nanov in actuality, which makes me think:

Will they be introducing the Reman section of New Romulus in Legacy of Romulus?

The Remans seem to live in a kind of bay facility as shown in the usual opening cinematic.
It'd logically open into some amount of a cavernous system, I would imagine.
So with the knowledge of New Romulus's fauna's art style and this witnessed fitting locale..

Could it be possible the concept art is showing us an overgrown insect of Mol'Rihan's underworld?

The HurQ are a nomadic race so I wouldn't call them extint, I would like to see the HurQ return and possible be behind the Fek'Lhri. The Fek'Lhri arc I hope will get expanded at some point and a new HurQ arc that follows it on.

We don't need the KDF fighting the Borg or True Way they should (imo) be focusing exclusively on Undine, Federation, Rival Klingon Houses/KDF Member uprisings (Gorn etc), Fek'Lhri and HurQ. Maybe throw a little Hirogen and Romulan into the mix to dilute it a little. ;)

You must be new to Star Trek if you think being dead means someone is going away forever. :-)
