What's the source for this character being named after James Komack? Komack did direct an episode of Trek, but that wasn't until a season later. --From Andoria with Love 22:14, 2 May 2009 (UTC)

Here, probably from text commentary from "Amok Time": "According to Denise and Michael Okuda, the character was named for James Komack, director of "A Piece of the Action"." --Alan 22:29, 2 May 2009 (UTC)

Hmm, i see. Well that's rather odd, considering the character was created before he directed his episode. Thanks for clarifying. --From Andoria with Love 06:39, 3 May 2009 (UTC)
