    Writers Use TOS's "Journey to Babel" as Launching Pad for Upcoming Show

    ENTERPRISE writers Michael Sussman and Phyllis Strong talk in the latest issue of Star Trek: The Magazine about the challenge of developing interesting ENT storylines around the continuity already established in previous Star Trek series.

    They mention that the Gorn were considered for an ENT appearance, but that after rewatching the TOS episode "Arena", they were quite certain that Kirk made the first contact with the Gorn. Other TOS species that they would like to incorporate into the new series include the Tellarites.

    One TOS species making its second appearance already in the Star Trek prequel is the Andorians, who made their debut in last year's "The Andorian Incident." The follow-up episode, "Shadows of P'Jem" airs in two weeks on UPN and Sussman and Strong told the magazine about the interesting backdrop they developed based on a continuity point in TOS's "Journey to Babel."

    "The planet in 'Shadows of P'Jem' is Coridan, which of course was mentioned in 'Journey to Babel,' when we first meet the Andorians," Sussman explains. "It was fun to finally go to that planet, see what these people are like, and set up all sorts of interesting backstory; in the show, Coridan is a planet with three billion people on it, and 100 years from now, it's a planet that Spock's father says is underpopulated. Now we've set up that there's a war on this planet, what's going to happen? Is this war going to wipe out all these people? And we've established that the Vulcans have a relationship with the government, and a lot of people don't approve of it. This is all background and subtext and I don't know if enough will be apparent, but it's something extra for the fans who look for little echoes."

    The latest issue of the magazine is on stands now, and thanks to 'Brant' for the tip!
