St. Patrick’s Day is all about green, so we’re ranking the best green aliens in Star Trek!
#7 The Mizarians
The Mizarians of Mizar II take being a pacifist to the extreme; their species has survived for hundreds of years by immediately surrendering to whoever comes along. The Mizarians claim to have a superior intellect and practice non-violent resistance, but the truth seems to be that they are cowardly and conniving.
We first met the Mizarians in Star Trek: The Next Generation season 3 episode 18 “Allegiance”. In “Allegiance” a group of aliens experiments on Captain Picard, a Mizarian, a Starfleet cadet, and a Chalnoth. The aliens were interested in doing experiments involving leadership, and had chosen the commanding Captain Picard, a pacifist Mizarian, and an anarchist Chalnoth quite deliberately. Picard of course discovers what the experiment is about and forces an end to the game.
The Mizarians are certainly green, but they come in last on our list because this was the only time we really got to see them in Star Trek. We also think the ultra pacifist alien charterer is a little played out in science fiction. (Also Kova Tholl was really annoying.)
