It's more or less evident that Combs' character will have to be a recurring one. To have a recurring character of such great popularity picked from the ranks of Andorians bodes well for the race... Of course, this proves nothing about the quality of material that will be written for Combs, but clearly TPTB see him as this show's answer to Garak. So the aim is set high and resources will be expended to make this work.
Frankly, this is a pleasant surprise after the initial speculation that the first recurring star would be the ship's cook...
Now all we lack is a Tellarite (perhaps to be played by a popular Ferengi actor) and a Gorn (hopefully in improved makeup) to make fanboy heaven. Orion girls are optional.
No, they had no knowledge of the Gorn until "Arena." Hence Kirk referring to it as "a creature apparently called a Gorn..." That was fist contact with them, my friend.
