Merging Ekosians and Zeons
what was the reasoning again behind merging "Ekosians" and "Zeons"? They seem rather divided on this page, and they are two different species. --Alan del Beccio 19:57, 29 September 2006 (UTC)
- For me both are looking like Human beings. Whats the purpose of defining them as a separate species or race. – The preceding unsigned comment was added by 22.214.171.124 (talk).
As can be seen on the screenshot, the Ekosian torturer was not played by William Blackburn. The end credits of the episode also doesn't list him as Ekosian torturer or anything else Ekosian, or anything else for that matter, so the credits are no source that would warrant attaching "Ekosian torturer" to his name. There is no Ekosian torturer listed in the end credits and the Star Trek Concordance lists him as haveing appeared as an Ekosian trooper. I went through the whole episode and he doesn't appear as an Ekosian anywhere (I found Roger Holloway aka Mr.Lemli as a Nazi Ekosian, though). He only appears as Hadley, that is why he must have ended up in the credits section of the Concordance (if I remember correctly, Bjo had access to call sheets and the likes). So, in this case, and unless a scene of him in a Nazi uniform was filmed, but cut, he never played an Ekosian. He doesn't appear as the Ekosian torturer, or an Ekosian trooper or as an Ekosian or Zeon in the whole episode, which is why I will remove the reference on this page. The only site, it seems, that lists him as playing the Ekosian torturer is Memory Alpha, well, no longer ;-) --Jörg 16:15, 30 July 2008 (UTC)
- Makes sense. My point in reverting the original removal was the new user seemed to be removing something from the site using a personal conversation with the actor as the source. Since thats totally unverifiable, it should not be allowed. But I also agree that this actor was not the person in question. -FC 17:07, 30 July 2008 (UTC)
