Anyone else want them to return? I think they were wicked and unlike a lot of other returning species, I really think this lot could come back exactly the same, without a makeover, because they looked brilliant.

I have said this in other threads before. I think they would be perfect for a return and I don't think their design would need a single change. I think it will likely be a long wait for their return though, if they ever did

It's great to have very alien aliens who aren't simply "the enemy".  In character (not so much in looks) they have a slight Klingon vibe - a rather rigid structure that's unattractive at first sight, but a very deep sense of honour.  They'd be a great candidate for a return.

I agree completely. Except the Klingon part. Never watch Star Trek so I have no idea about them

Definately worthy of a return, and I agree that they don't need the update/upgrade either. They looked brilliant as they were and they were an interesting species to explore so it would be great to see what else they could do with them

They would be very high on my list of aliens I would like to see return. I think they looked brilliant and I love that they are in a sort of a grey area where they are neither good or bad. I think they would have lots of story potential, but as others have said it is probably unlikely they will get a return, especially when there are more popular candidates waiting in line for a comeback

I think bringing them back could be fun, but other than a story like this, or turning them nasty, I can't really think what they would be good for. Though I suppose that's why I'm not writing scripts for a living

A very interesting race. Like humans they have good people and bad people, and a society and codes of behaviour that you could probably spend a lifetime studying without ever really understanding.

I could definitely see a way for them to come back. It seems from this story that they were the first other major civilisation that humans encountered in their space travel. Surely there are all sorts of stories that could be told about the early days of human interstellar travel and their first meetings with the Draconians?

I agree with the Dame. There is loads of potential with them. Their first meeting with humans probably being the most obvious one. I'd love to see them come back. I think they look awesome
