This Octopi casually is named a formation of an existance that appears to be travelling through the deep space atmosphere like a space vampire. The drive of it nature to reproduce would have to be adapted to incestual producins of other origins and atmospheres.

What does this have to do with anything? --Gvsualan 22:04, 21 Jun 2005 (UTC)
I concurr... what on earth are you talking about, Abbeyhuling? zsingaya 22:26, 21 Jun 2005 (UTC)
As far as I can tell, Abbey doesn't speak English natively. It sounds as if s/he is claiming (a) that the Vendorian is named for some astrological phenomenon and (b) that the creature would need to take some other form to procreate. (a) is, of course, totally irrelevant, and (b) probably came from a misunderstanding from the dialog in "The Survivor", where "Winston" says he is not a producer.
Either that, or Abbey is using a random word generator. --Commodore Sixty-Four(talk) 14:02, 7 July 2007 (UTC)


As they demonstrated in their ultimately unsuccessful efforts to save the life of trader and philanthropist Carter Winston, Vendorians were excellent surgeons – due in no small part to having six tentacles in their true forms – and they likewise possessed knowledge of other branches of medicine.

Original research. There's a few small other things I've removed/rewritten for being speculative too, but they were minor enough that I didn't feel it worth putting them here.

Unfortunately for communities of worlds, the Vendorians practice deception as a way of life, and they have been deemed psychologically unfit to participate in such communities on those grounds. Indeed, due to the Vendorians's deceitful way of life, the Federation has imposed a quarantine on their homeworld, Vendor, declaring it off-limits to travelers.

This was so rife with innacuracies that I've cut it and re-added what's relevant in other places in the article. I mean, communities of worlds?? Where does that term even come from, it sure wasn't in the episode. And it was never said that it was the Federation that imposed the quarantine.
It is unknown whether this process is chemical/electrical or mechanical, such as the Vulcan nerve pinch. Though it was demonstrated several times on-screen, no explanation was ever provided.
This note explaining that something was not explained doesn't really add much.

(or, indeed, any deception that either side practiced upon the other to lure that other into and/or across the border between the two governments)

This was a speculative interpretation of something the episode is ambiguous about; you can interpret the dialog to mean this, but it could also be taken otherwise. -- Capricorn (talk) 18:37, August 24, 2017 (UTC)
