they do scream weekly series, perhaps series 3 or 4. i know they have some plans already laid down and they have mentioned a race not yet implemented in sto for one of those series so there is an outside shot tholians might be them.
either way we need to get them in game at some point. the only problem is the ground combat because tholians scant live in our environment and we cant live in theirs so it will be somewhat tricky, unless our crews yet environmental suits.
A weekly episode would be awesome. Like you said I don't know how they would do ground combat... what do Tholian's look like could they use environmental suits?
Ok I just Googled them, look pretty neat. They're crystalline in nature right? Perhaps they could have produced a "coating" or something for themselves to survive in "class M" or whatever it is we can live in? Perhaps a stoyline could start with distress calls from ships but they get destroyed and you have to unravel the mystery behind their destruction etc would be interesting no?
Y'know, every starfleet away team has shields now, just make it o when you beam aboard their ships, if you don't have shields, you'll take DOT really fast, if you have a shield you wont take DOT. Suppose that'd still make combat tricky since as soon as your shield drops, the enviroment kills you v.v
