Citation needed Edit
I removed the following note, which has lacked citation for over two years now. Yes, the name is similar, but the rest is just speculation ("apparently", "possibly") without some production source. Apocrypha already notes how the name similarity is dealt with in non-canon works:
- His character was apparently intended to be Joaquin, one of the supermen (played by Mark Tobin) seen in TOS: "Space Seed", but he is a separate character due to the name being changed, possibly erroneously, in production of Star Trek II.
