Apocrypha

In 1975, the Mego toy company produced a reptilian action figure doll called a "Neptunian," although such a creature never appeared at any time during the Star Trek franchise. Mego may have intended to create a Skorr or Aquan action doll, but it looks nothing like the animated species. [2]
