Re: VOY S4: Living Witness

"And I really wish they would stop using 'race' instead of 'species'. These were not 2 different races. They were different species."

They are only different species if you know for a fact that they cannot breed with each and produce fertile offspring.

Since they both call that planet home (and presumably evolved there) it is perfectly valid to categorize them both as *the* humanoid species of that planet. Their divergent genetics would fairly be classified as their race. And if they were animals, it would be correct to refer to them as being different breeds of the same species.
