Does this refer to the Kriosians from "The Mind's Eye" or "The Perfect Mate" and "Precious Cargo"? -- Excelsior 17:15, 15 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Some pages refer to these as three different species, I don't see why, it seems to me like just good continuity that we have come across them more then once? -AJHalliwell 17:26, 15 Jun 2005 (UTC)
For the person who "inuse"-d this, here are the images for male+female: (de-no-wiki-fy them of coarse)

This is getting complicated. I would prefer to think of them as one species, and maybe accept them as two (if we knew the Klingon controlled differed), but I really hate it when the hacks at decides that one name belongs to two separate races -- see: Krios -- whereas the Star Trek Encyclopedia links them together but doesnt associate the two - either way I'd rather avoid dividing the two/three. But the Kriosians from "Precious Cargo" and "The Perfect Mate" seem to have a minor commonality by the usage of similar words defining a single culture: such as "commoners" and "royal village". Though I can't even tell if they look alike, does the ENT "Kriosian" have the same "trill spots" that the TNG "Kriosians" have? --Gvsualan 19:15, 15 Jun 2005 (UTC)
In my opinion, they're one species. They were once a monarchy (or w/e Kaitaama was in "Precious Cargo"), and during the Klingon take-over's mentioned in "Errand of Mercy", they took over Krios. Hence the colony there; it's also note worthy that in "The Mind's Eye" they refer to uprisings amongst the independence-wanters, and that the Federation would like nothing better then to see them gain independence. I think MA should consider them one species, and have a not at the bottom saying they might be between 1 and 3. Also, all the close-ups of Kaitaama I can find are to grainy to make out if those are spots or picture degradation. [1]. But I believe they are... -AJHalliwell 19:32, 15 Jun 2005 (UTC)
"Errand of Mercy"?? What you suggest is speculation. There is no mention of Krios or Kriosian-anything in TOS. --Gvsualan 19:48, 15 Jun 2005 (UTC)
Oh yes, that is speculation, thats just what I think might have happened. (blah-- added to the confusion) That first part was just my idea of a what possibly happened, to explain the Klingon colony and info from Mind's eye. Sorry 'bout that. -AJHalliwell 19:56, 15 Jun 2005 (UTC)


How come Kamala looks like a Trill? The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk). Because at the start of DS9 they gave Terry Farrell the previous trill make up and then decided that she looked better with the similar spots as it left her face unobscured (and all trills after used the same make-up) [I know there maybe issues with responding to a old anonymous comment but It needed answering] Hutchy01 (talk) 12:04, September 27, 2014 (UTC)
