Andorians & Tellarites- Unrepresented?

Recommended Posts

Since the two species were co-founders of the Federation, I often wonder why they are so unrepresented in Star Trek. 

ENT had quite a bit on Andorians, but not near as much (I think) for co-founder. 

Except for a recent episode of SNW we can almost say "What's a Tellarite?"

Budget. At least I believe that's the production reason. In world it could be looked at as Starfleet was the Terran equivalent of their already space faring organizations so there's not as much reason or incentive for members of their species to join Starfleet.

It could also be that Tellarites are more inclined to join the Federation Merchant Marine over a career in Starfleet?

I agree with @Lt Aine Olive Sherlock on this underrepresentation being a budget issue in the 1960s. I did enjoy the Andorian content in ENT as well @Cirus Almonaster V! I have always felt that we need to see more Tellarites on the silver screen. In all honesty, I would love to see additional Tellarite characters here at SB118 in the future. If you can not see them as much on the shows and love them, then you can technically still write them. 😃
