Makeup Edit

I never knew this type of alien was given a name. Can we assume that these guys are also Algolians? -- Harry t 14:15, 6 Nov 2005 (UTC)

They are certainly very similar. It looks like at least most of the make-up is reused. Anyone else have thoughts on this? Jaf 02:13, 28 January 2006 (UTC)Jaf
It seems that this make-up was originally used for the Promellians, then changed slightly for the Algolians (different nose, longer, fleshy skin) and finally, for the aliens seen on the external link (the only named member of this species is Pardshay), the original Promellian make-up was used again (members of Pardshays species can often be seen on the promenade, in fact even wearing the green Promellian uniforms. For a closer examination, please look here [1] --Jörg 11:27, 28 January 2006 (UTC)
If I was to guess at this from an 'in universe' position, I'd say we're looking at a species type, like Vulcanoids. From the world of the viewer tho, I'd say we need background sections addressing make-up reuse with links connecting these similarities. Jaf 13:09, 28 January 2006 (UTC)Jaf

Federation MembersEdit

Do we want to add Algolians to the list of suspected Federations worlds? They did have people sitting on the Federation Archeological Council. Jaz 18:02, 28 January 2006 (UTC)

Sure, I think it'll be alright to place them under "Probable Members."--Tim Thomason 18:16, 28 January 2006 (UTC)

Removed Edit

The Algolians' appearance is similar to the Promellians and Pardshay's species and together they likely represent a species type.

Speculative. — Morder (talk) 06:14, December 20, 2009 (UTC)

I've put back the observation that they look l lot like those species (realistically, they are close enough that make-up reuse was probably involved, so...), but left out the thing about species type. I think the new note keeps a valid observation, while not being speculative. -- Capricorn 13:37, October 27, 2010 (UTC)

Algol Edit

So...do we want to keep this as "unreferenced material"? It's not in the version of the script available online - [2]. Do we really need a page for something that's only on StarTrek.com? –Cleanse ( talk | contribs ) 02:51, November 13, 2011 (UTC)

I would say no.... but if this needed to be kept it could be merged somewhere, perhaps with Algolian (where it could be mentioned as a possible name of their homeworld).--31dot 02:54, November 13, 2011 (UTC)
Just had the same idea as 31dot. A background note on Algolian is not wrong. Tom 02:56, November 13, 2011 (UTC)
