Eighth sense?Edit

What does the article mean when it says they have an "eighth sense"? What are senses 6 and 7? The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).

More importantly, why do we have this article? Did they actually appear on screen? Even if they did, any info besides their appearance belongs to background; it isn't canon. – Cleanse talk 06:05, 19 February 2008 (UTC)
The source is valid. --Alan del Beccio 16:16, 19 February 2008 (UTC)
Is it? It certainly seems to be something from "extra features" or something. I don't see why that would be valid, it isn't on screen during the actual production, it is more in the vein of the Encyclopedia, production source background, Companion, or Tech Manual. --OuroborosCobra talk 16:22, 19 February 2008 (UTC)
Which are still valid, aren't they? I mean, in terms of the name, and basic stuff, not the planet and "eighth sense" stuff. --Alan del Beccio 16:23, 19 February 2008 (UTC)
I don't think it is valid enough to warrant having its own article, no. We get a name for things that are otherwise still canon. Is this otherwise canon, or is the only information from off screen? It definitely has a place on MA, but possibly in a merged article or something. --OuroborosCobra talk 16:43, 19 February 2008 (UTC)
The simple solution, rather than outright deleting the article, would be to make this a realworld article and reword it ala Martin Madden. However, that is only if they did not appear on-screen. If they did, then the article is fine the way it is based on our current content policy. --From Andoria with Love 08:02, 21 February 2008 (UTC)


This should be merged with K'normian;the species appeared onscreen, but not their planet, so a name derived from production source for an unseen thing is invalid. Should stay as a redirect like, say Grazer though. Kennelly 15:13, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

I support all the suggested merges regarding the species' homeworlds only mentioned in TMP production notes.– Cleanse talk 03:43, 20 February 2008 (UTC)
Ditto, now that I have rewritten the species' articles. --Alan del Beccio 05:30, 21 February 2008 (UTC)
This probably goes without saying, but after the merge the planet articles should remain as non-canon redirects.– Cleanse talk 06:25, 21 February 2008 (UTC)

Removed Edit

I've removed the following note because it is (or at least seems) too speculative to retain: "Kirk thought he and his men could pose as K'normian arms dealers without plastic surgery, suggesting that sometimes they looked more Human, or that they sometimes employed Humans, or that the aliens seen in The Motion Picture, which were only named by background sources, are not K'normians after all." --Defiant (talk) 02:37, August 23, 2016 (UTC)
