Is this character's name Dereth or Dareth? There seem to be fairly detailed MA entries created under both spellings. Going by the official Star Trek website, I'd imagine "Dereth" is correct, but I haven't seen the episode in a while (and don't own the DVDs) so can't confirm myself.
Is anyone in a position to confirm, and once confirmed, appropriately adjust whichever entry is in error? TommyRaiko 18:10, 16 July 2006 (UTC)
- The transcript for the episode lists his name as DERETH, as does the Star Trek Encyclopedia and even the Star Trek Customizable Card Game. Counting StarTrek.com, that's four good sources for the name -- and that's good enough for me. ;) --From Andoria with Love 03:12, 19 July 2006 (UTC)
I have removed this from the background section:
Interestingly, Dereth was assigned to find new organs for Motura, despite obviously suffering from the Phage himself, and presumably also needing new organs. This suggests there may be some social inequalities as to who gets more help in the Vidiian society. However, since the Phage appeared to have infected the entire Vidiian species (thus making a completely healthy Vidiian extremely rare, if not nonexistent), this is probably a normal occurrence.
This is entirely speculation unsupported by any dialogue or production note or anything. Furthermore, the fact that an artist has a second vocation doing something vital but unsavory is hardly unique - we have the Malon captain from VOY: "Juggernaut" who is a sculptor/waste exporter.
