question; Pink skins referance...
« on: December 05, 2004, 02:53:00 pm »
In another Trek Forum I was discussing the andorian referance to Pink Skins, and I know I've heard that Phrase Before, From the Andorians. I can't place It though for the life of me.

was It in a TOS episode or a Book? anyhelp would be greatly appreciated.

It actually originated in the first episode we saw them in on ENT, "The Andorian Incident."


"Chaos Theory, Part II" now available.

Next time Enterprise has to meet with Andorians, just to irritate Shran, they should send Mayweather and Hoshi as the away team.

Make him at least come up with a new insult.
