Guess what? Star Trek aliens isn’t over. Why? Simple, I forgot my reference material for today’s planned DS at the office yesterday and didn’t feel like going to get them. So I sketched up another alien for today. Hope you enjoy.
The Suliban are a nomadic species from Sector 3641 whose homeworld became uninhabitable in the 1850s. Many Suliban settled in the Tandar Sector, but when the Suliban Cabal, an interstellar terrorist organization active in the 22nd century that took their orders from a mysterious figure from the 28th century, began attacking the Tandarans in 2144, they were rounded up and placed in detainment camps.
Suliban were no more evolved than Humans, and normally possessed three bronchial lobes. Vulcan evaluation concluded they were nonthreatening. However, members of the Suliban Cabal had their DNA altered and their skeletons restructured, giving them unique chameleon-like, shapeshifting abilities and enhanced senses, by their mysterious future benefactor.
Trivia- okay. Star Trek writer/producer and co-creator of ST: Enterprise, Rick Berman, came up with the name Suliban based on the name Taliban. He thought the name was mysterious and exotic. The Suliban were the first “new” alien species introduced to Trek fans on Star Trek: Enterprise appearing in the first episode of the new series.
See you all tomorrow,
