Removed following speculation:
- They seem to be physiologically similar to humans in almost all aspects, however, speculation has been raised that they may age at a quicker rate, due to the fact that most Bandi posess the appearance of an average, middle-aged human.
Aside from the obvious "speculation has been raised" comment, this observation about the few Bandi we saw on screen is simply an observation, not a fact. All the kids could have been in school for all we know. --Alan del Beccio 10:11, 31 January 2006 (UTC)
more removed text Edit
David Gerrold wrote a TOS story premise, prior to selling "The Trouble with Tribbles", involving a non-sentient, vaguely ursine, empathic telepath whose influence became a danger to the ship. "Bandi" was both the name of the creature and the title of the story. The premise was reproduced in Gerrold's The Trouble with Tribbles non-fiction Star Trek book; commenting on it in that book, he explained that the name was intended to be somewhere between "Bambi" and "banshee," suggesting a cute menace. There is no evidence one way or the other on whether the Bandi of Deneb IV were named after the creature in the story premise; however, Gerrold was involved in the early development of TNG, and did write the novelization of Encounter at Farpoint. Gerrold wrote a story titled "Bandi" in the third volume of the Star Trek Manga, "Uchu".
- While interesting, this info belongs (and is already present) at Undeveloped Star Trek: The Original Series episodes. So removed the paragraph, and replaced it with a link to that page. -- Capricorn 21:54, June 15, 2011 (UTC)
