Tholians in Season 6

Post by Triton » Fri Jul 27, 2012 1:22 pm

It appears that Star Trek Online has Tholians in Season 6. It appears that Cryptic has Tholians running around in human starships without encounter suits or atmosphere suits. Yet, Star Trek: Enterprise "In A Mirror Darkly, Part 1" establishes that Tholians require a temperature of 480 Kelvin (207 °C, 404 °F). Wouldn't the carapaces of Tholians develop painful and life-threatening cracks in the cold of class M environments? Wouldn't they require heated suits to function in class M environments?

Maybe they solved the problem between the 22nd and 25th centuries...

Of course, the only time I've encountered them required my character to wear an environment suit.
