Robert Bloch was a contributor to the Cthulhu Mythos fiction cycle. In both Catspaw and What are Little Girls Made of? he mentions the Old Ones. This is an obvious homage to the alien race called the Old Ones or Elder Ones in H.P. Lovecrafts Dreams in the Witch House and At the Mountains of Madness.--GreatBear 02:00, 15 October 2006 (UTC)
While I understand naming this article probably wasn't an easy choice, the name is not in the right POV and needs to be changed to reflect an in universe point of view, and not the name of the episode. --Alan del Beccio 03:57, 12 March 2007 (UTC)
- "The Old Ones either did not, or could not, monitor their explorers, or presumably they would have intervened before Sylvia became so dangerous, or to save the lives of their people after Kirk smashed the transmuter."
