Split suggestion Edit
- Disagree. That'd be like splitting the giant head and the little man in the Wizard of Oz. They are one and the same... just a "disguise". -- sulfur (talk) 12:01, August 9, 2016 (UTC)
- Same as the Wizard of Oz btw... :) -- sulfur (talk) 14:59, August 9, 2016 (UTC)
Not really. It would be like that if both the childlike man and the puppet were usually one and the same person who was around for an entire series (and more), but just happened to be split for only a single episode. This Balok case is, iirc, also different from the Wizard in The Wizard of Oz; his disguise was basically all smoke and mirrors, and couldn't be touched. The puppet Balok could be touched and therefore actually has a physical presence itself, very different from that of its operator. Please correct me if I'm mistaken about The Wizard of Oz, though; it's been ages since I watched it. --Defiant (talk) 16:14, August 9, 2016 (UTC)
It's just that this article isn't written from the right perspective. If it's about the childlike man Balok, then it should be from his point of view, not the puppet's, Kirk's nor the Enterprise's. --Defiant (talk) 17:01, August 9, 2016 (UTC)
