Here is a weird one. Well it is a decent episode about a galactic mystery, with every big race on the hunt. Klingons, Romulans, Humans, and Cardassians. I like that part of it, but what it turns out is their big mystery is just kind of weird as hell, and I’m not entirely sure I buy it.
It turns out that it is some message from early humanoids, practically featureless humanoids, and they claim to have visited most of their worlds and been the spawn of all these current races’ existence. Right…they all spawned from you and their foreheads just slowly changed.

I guess it could be why the Trek Universe is filled with just slightly different foreheaded aliens.
