In the episode "The Last Outpost", Data remarks that the Ferengi distorted his image. Was it ever revealed the reason why he did so?


1 Answer 1


To make himself look "large and menacing", according to the original screenplay

[The MAIN VIEWER FLICKERS and AN IMAGE OF DAIMON TAAR'S FERENGI FACE comes into sight -- large, menacing, lens-twisted and very brightly lit.]

Later we actually meet the Ferengi

[Sitting opposite Riker on a crystalline rock is a little Ferengi humanoid, LETEK, leader of this group. His eyes "dart" around birdlike as he studies the Starfleet insignia just taken from Riker. He is fine-boned, small -- looking far different and less menacing than the image transmitted to the Enterprise Main Viewer.]
