"To Serve Man", mmm, yummy. A grey said that to me once.

Well, I think there should be gray characters in Star Trek... they've been avoiding the whole issue of grays on the bridge since the beginning. They don't have to have a gray "token" or anything... and we certainly don't want to see any gray character doing any "anal probing" on screen... but we could show two gray characters having a relationship without losing the audiance at all... Yes, there could definitely be a gray character on Trek.


Oh, wait...

I think I have my threads mixed up....

Anyway, speaking of grays, there was that episode where the crew were being abducted to another dimension on TNG. They weren't grays, more like fish people, but certainly was reminiscent of the whole abduction phenomena. Interesting story line too.

And they have popped up on other sci fi series... I remember B5 having an episode where someone wanted to sue a gray for "abducting his grandfather" or something... and of course there were the Asgaurd on Stargate.

Once again, grays on OTHER shows... but not on Trek... I think Berman had an anti gray attitude...

Yeah, I remember that on B5. Berman needs a trip through the hall of toleration, our gray brothers need to be represented in the world of trek in some form or another.
