- This article is about a species. You may be looking for Scott Summers of the X-Men or the mythical cyclops.
Background[edit | edit source]
Nova XIII's cyclops are bipedal, hairy, bearded, and 100 feet tall.
History[edit | edit source]
A cyclops found James T. Kirk and Montgomery Scott just outside of the Galileo shortly after it landed on Nova XIII. Before one of his huge hands could crush them, music from a native's flute stopped him. The cyclops cleared away dense jungle foliage so the natives could bring Kirk and Scott to a village in the jungle.
When the Starfleet officers later escaped, flute sounds alerted four cyclops to track them down. One cyclops nearly detected the officers, but their scents were masked by the aroma of nearby succulents, and he passed them by. They covered themselves with plant juices and were able to sneak back to the shuttlecraft. The shuttle took off quickly, narrowly evading the outstretched hand of a cyclops.
