Don't know if anyone has posted about this before, but I found a website with pics of the Kzinti "Darkstalker" that would have debuted in the fifth season of Enterprise had it not been cancelled. One only wonders what the Kzinti themselves would have looked like...

Neat, huh?

Cool. Kind of looks like a submarine.

Probably would've looked like humanoid cats ... [Razz]

Ship looks like a lobster.

I was thinking this was the offspring of Vulcan and Andorian starships.

Wasn't there some legal reason why they couldn't use Kzinti in DS9, which is why they were called Tzenkethi instead? So what would have changed to allow ENT to use them?

Heh, that looks like it wouldn't be out place as a vehicle from X-Com Apocalypse.

The ship is indeed old news, I had contact with the creator Jimmy Diggs and he confirmed that it was intented do be used in Season 5, parts of the production (among it Kzinti appearence) was based on a previous possible feature film. [1]

Further more there were no legal issues regarding the name [2].

Also the episode is currently in pre-production to be used as a New Voyages/Phase II episode. [3]

I imagine they still would have changed the name, though? The producers always seemed very wary (overly so!) of viewers getting confused and having a major new species called the Kzinti would no doubt confuse a lot of casual viewers who'd become used to the Enterprise crew having encounters with the Xindi.

Yeah, but we might have ended up with another "Tarkaelian, Tolosian, Tkzintialian" race.
As long as they are clearly two different entities, and are distinguishable from eachother in looks, or ship design, etc, I don't think it would be that confusing.

Why don't they just use "Caitian"?

Really? I though Caitians were a separate species? They looked like they evolved from domestic cats, while Kzinti has a more feral look.

That's presumably why he said they are not equal to one another.

I thought "=" meant equal. Maybe he should have used an "≠".
