Just wondering if a link, and a mention to the possibility of a connection should be drawn with Armus the Skin of Evil. It gets a reference to Burton Armus on the "Armus Skin of Evil" page, but not the other way around. :) Just thinking out loud. Hossrex 06:38, 29 December 2006 (UTC)
I removed the following:
- Burton Armus was possibly the inspiration for the name of the character Armus in "Skin of Evil", although it should be noted that he did not join the show's writing staff until the start of the following season.
Why should the production name a character after someone who wasn't already part of the production team? If anyone can provide a link for this specualtion, please do. Tom 18:29, June 6, 2011 (UTC)
- Maybe because he was known by the then-current producers, was a good friend of theirs, etc. And probably that's why he was invited to produce the series in the next season. Of course, it's just my theory. But if I recall the Star Trek: The Next Generation Companion mentioned this trivia entry. And there was a similar case in the original series: Admiral Komack was named nearly a year before James Komack directed an episode of TOS, but Komack was well-known in Desilu circles, and that's why they honored him. -- Ltarex 12:12, August 28, 2011 (CET)
- I'm afraid I wasn't able to find it in the Companion. I also checked Captains' Logs: The Unauthorized Complete Trek Voyages, Star Trek: The Next Generation - The Continuing Mission and the Star Trek Encyclopedia. It could be somewhere else. But until we find a citation, its speculation, as Tom said. –Cleanse ( talk | contribs ) 11:31, August 28, 2011 (UTC)
