# 1 Tholians?
08-30-2010, 04:41 AM
I remember the Tholians being a pretty cool minor race, but don't recall ever seeing them in TNG... did their species get wiped out or something? Sorry if I seem off topic but part of me is curious to if we will ever see them in STO, remember getting pwned by Tholian webs in Klingon Academy years ago :p.

They were neer seen but were sitlll pretty powerful from what was mentioned. Apparently an attack by them had killed Rikers mom as well as quite a few other people on a starbase. They do have major roles though in several Enterprise episdoes (Deffinantly worth a look) especially "In a Mirror Darkly"

Tholians are isolationists and xenophobes so they ususally stay in their own borders slowly expanding. I for on though would love to see a game mechanic involving the Tholians energy web and also a Tholian faction.

There were references to them but the expense of having them on the show limited their appearances to only TOS (with puppets and the like) and towards the end of ENT (when CGI was no longer AS expensive)

They got referenced from time to time on TNG and DS9 though so they were def still around.

Hey maybe there is an opportunity for a special mission arc here? Would be nice to see these guys back in action.

they are still around, just their non humanoid look makes it more expensive to show a tholians than some guy with spots or ridges on his nose.

id love to see some tholians in game and would be interested to see how cryptic pull it off

I duuno, Commander Loskeen looked like a guy wearing a golden helmet. Shouldn't be too hard.

If it was cool then it was automatically excluded from TNG.

Lets be honest there were some cool things in TNG, Jean Luc got borgified for a start and pwned starfleet!

I personally think the Tholians should be the baddies in the next set of weekly episodes after the Breen.
