I'm open to anyone but the Xindi.

Although, I would love to see the Horta again. What a sweet creature. You know, once they got the misunderstanding cleared up and the miners stopped killing her babies.

Please....no Klingons.

A cameo from "Q" would be cool.

Default Tos Era Aliens

seriously, it seems that the biggest thing I would like to have seen for years would be some consistency.... look, the federation is basically confined to a sphere of maybe (kindly) 50,000 LY in diameter (okay, radius...) and we get new aliens all the time. Couldn't we get to know some of the old guys a little better? The Tholians and the Gorn seemed to be important regional powers in the TOS era, never to be heard from again until (awesomely) in ENT.

Also, it would be neat to see something about some TNG races who should have been known to the federation as early as TOS based on how close they seem to be cartographically to Sol (Bajorians, Bolian, Trill, Cardasians)... It seems that maybe TOS was more concerned with the Beta Quadrant and TNG, DS9 with the Alpha, perhaps?

Anyway, I'd love to see Charter Federation Members Denobulans, the Rigelians, and the Coridanites in the movie, along with andorians, vulcans, and telarites. Izabor's "**** Sapiens Only Club" comment in Undiscovered Country really rings true in some cases...

It would be interesting to see if they have Klingons and if they have ridges on their foreheads.

I'd be real surprised if they didn't put Klingons in there...

I would love to see Andorians (or some other old Federation members) .
But please, no more Klingons.

Tholians, Tholians, Tholians. I have no idea when they may have been first encountered by the Federation in the canon and I really don't care. How can you beat a silicon-based life form for a cameo? You can't.

The whole Star Trek Vanguard series of novels has really fleshed out some intriguing stuff with the Tholians. It would be great to see some of that on the big screen.

I'd love so see a Gorn or the Andorians and Orions. But my favourite: a big fat tribble

I'll bet anyone $100 US dollars that there will be at least 1 tribble in the movie... :P
