Ficus Panderato - Science officer
assigned to the United Galaxy Sanitation
Patrol's intergalactic garbage scow on the sci-fi spoof
QUARK/NBC/1978. Born on the planet Vegetan, Ficus (Richard
Kelton) was boring,
talkative and half human/half vegetable. His character was a
parody of the half-human and half-Vulcan science officer, Mr.
Spock (Leonard Nimoy) on the sci-fi series STAR
When Ficus's mating cycle occurred, he
performed a marital ritual that involved pollination. During one
such encounter with a seductress named Libido (Joan Van Ark) she
and Ficus lie face-up on the floor, raise their arms and legs
vertically and then call aloud "Bee-bee-bee-bee-bee-bee!" as
they wait for bees to pollinated them.
