That's just off the top of my head.
I think the point was that Trek showed us over 9000 different races over the years (coining the term "alien of the week") which - with some very few exceptions like those you pointed out - all happened to look just like Humans with very minor differences such as pointy ears or a ridged nose.
Heck, they've even gone as far as to give us
a canon explanation
why so many races look alike and are capable of interbreeding. We all know the real reason were budget issues and artistic lazyness though.
