- Science officer (Richard
Kelton) 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 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.
