I've looked in the episode database here, and in other Trek fan databases. It's a little thing, but this is driving me nuts: what is the name of the planet Archer and Reed are on, or the government whose military has captured them as 'enemy spies' in the episode "The Communicator"?

Does anyone have it?

Hi Serit!

I was recently browsing the transcript of this episode, and I honestly don't believe they mentioned either the planet or the name of the species.

They did mention the Chancellor who had visited by name, and they mentioned the Alliance, of which they thought Archer and Reed were a part. I'll check, but if I don't report back it's 'cause I'm right... :)

As for your alien friends, it seems that they weren't given a species name. So, they were just the "Aliens of the Week"

Well, I think we all know that if they were named, it would be something starting with a "T".

Definitely "Tan-something"!
Sorry, I have to be ruthless with quotes--could it be something like "Tanket," "Tankret," either of those with an 'e' on the end, or "Trancredi," which has a story behind it.

Tancred (1072 - December 5 or December 12, 1112) was a Norman leader of the First Crusade who later became Prince of Galilee and regent of the Principality of Antioch. Rossini based his opera Tancredi on Voltaire's 1759 play Tancrede. (sorry--the letter had a diacritical mark, and this site can't present them)

Do any of the above names ring a phoenetic bell with rabid ENT/Reed fans?

...why, yes, I am stealing these bits wholesale from Wikipedia...

Trancred, Prince of Galilee

For anyone interested, I used "Predasia", but I can easily global change that to "Tancresia" and the adjectival form would be "Tancresian".

Okay, see sonofspock1's post before mine--the one with all the quotes within. Look for the link to Ex Astris Scientia; if you go there, you see lots of planet and aliens' names beginning with "T".

I didn't have this info last week, so I made up a name for the planet ("Predasia" ); now I have sonofspock1's information, and I can change the name of the planet to something vaguely-ENT sounding. The first part of my post was throwing out names that might fit.

Does anyone know if the planet's name, or the government's name, may have originally been in an earlier version of the script and was edited out?

OK. I gotcha now. I actually put the Ex Astris Link on there.

Well, using the T-Race generator, I get... Tanmitanians. :D
