{{bginfo|The script of "The Corbomite Maneuver" made it clear that Balok's pilot vessel was a section of the ''Fesarius'' which detached from that mother ship.|The set for the interior of this craft was built on [[Desilu Stage 9]], and was a redress of the [[briefing room]] set. (''Information from "The Corbomite Maneuver" call sheets'', ''[[These Are the Voyages: TOS Season One]]'', p. 126) [[Clint Howard]] – who, in his childhood, played Balok – approved of the set. He remarked, "''A great thing about the set is it was built to my size... and everybody else had to hunch down, which I thought was pretty cool.''" ("Inside the Roddenberry Vault, Part I", ''[[Star Trek: The Original Series - The Roddenberry Vault]]'' special features) Several walls from this small set were subsequently reused, to represent the [[M-11 Starbase Club]] in {{e|Court Martial}}. (''[[The Star Trek Compendium]]'', 4th ed., p. 46)}}
