The first season of TNG was very similar to TOS, hence mysterious aliens like the Bynars who just appear once. If we had seen them or the Gorn or the Tholians or the Horta or whoever else more often, they might have become less mysterious and less fascinating.

That's one of the reasons why I like the first two seasons of TNG, the universe seemed to be much bigger before reoccuring aliens like Klingons and Romulans made Trek epic. Not that I don't like that, on the contrary, but the 'all alone out there' atmosphere also has its merits.
