I think it's pretty clear that the Elachi are the aliens from the Star Trek Enterprise episode "Silent Enemy"

For one they look identical, secondly their ships are identical. Thirdly and most importantly on the Legacy of Romulus website, on the second page of the "New Features" tab, Perfect World themselves refer to them as "The Silent Enemy.

Pretty dam conclusive evidence.

Whether their story team pulled ideas from other episodes and combined them with the "Silent Enemy", which we know almost nothing about from canon episodes, or created their intensions from scratch is something only they can tell us.

their intentions are from scratch from the looks of it, STO was built on a novel they made and on the destruction of romulus during the hobus incident, where as abramscrapverse went into the past on an alternative reality, life goes on in the prime universe. in the end it is all non canon this entire game and as such the intentions of these elachi as cryptic call them.

because the elachi had no real motivations during the few seconds they were observed on the ENT by archer, it would be easy to design and build an intention on these aliens. i mean they may have simply been curious about the ENT and its crew rather then outright hostile contact and not all motivations can be understood by a human.

Curious? A race of aliens known to kidnap entire ships and turn them into FARMS for nourishment attacking your vessel and boarding it is more than enough justification to shoot back.

Yeah. The Elachi are the silent enemy. It is listed on the "shroomie" aliens page that their non canon name is elachi.

By the way, the Elachi are a really evil, ugly, scary and intimdating villains. I laughed at the borg when I first saw them on tv, they were like the Terminator and Darth Vader's lame cousin.

But the elachi? They are properly wierd, freaky evil aliens. They are the menace the borg can never be, no matter how powerful you make them.

One thing to remember about Schisms is that the Solanagen aliens would physically disintegrate in normal space. So yeah, they can't be the same race. maybe an ally though...

Being as TvTropes is like wikipedia but not as strictly monitored I have an issue with that entry. I am going to take it with a HUGE grain of salt.

So ... if the Elachi are intended to be the same aliens from "Schisms", why do they look nothing like them? Is one a subspecies of the other? Why is there no explanation?
