Action figureEdit

The appearence of a Talosian action figure in Rain Robinson's office should not be background information. This is an in-universe occurance and should be addressed as such. Jaf 20:46, 9 December 2006 (UTC)Jaf

Was it stated as being a Talosian, or was it coincidently a B-movie alien that looked like one to us? --Alan del Beccio 06:20, 2 February 2008 (UTC)


I removed:

The Taelons from "Gene Roddenberry's Earth: Final Conflict" were directly based on the Talosians. In addition to the similarity of the names, both races had large hairless heads; plus, in both cases, the actresses were given masculine-sounding voices to suggest asexuality. {{incite}}

Not cited, nor am I making any connections in google either. --Alan del Beccio 06:20, 2 February 2008 (UTC)

Talosian nickname Edit

I was talking to my wife about an old Star Trek episode, The Cage, I think. I referred to the Talosians as the 'buttheads,' which is what I and my friends called them years ago (I was about 10 years old or so when I first watched Star Trek). I always assumed this was how the term butthead entered the American vernacular.

In the 1980s I met another Trek fan who also called them buttheads.

On the spur of the moment today I googled around trying to find some current support for the Talosian-butthead connection and found this not a widespread nickname? I thought it would be a part of StarTrek lore, but apparently not.

I, personally, have never referred to them as buttheads. I think I read a magazine or website article that called them buttheads or buttheaded-aliens, but I'm not sure. That's the only time I can recall them being referred to in that way, though. In any event, it doesn't seem to be a widespread nickname... at least not a widely documented one. --From Andoria with Love 16:15, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

Oneshot alien showEdit

Too bad none of the succeding deries ever thought to do follow up of the Talosians as members of the UFP--what an interesitng story that could have been-even as a cameo...!
