Bela Okmyx is an Iotian
who's planet was heavily influenced by Humans before the Prime Directive. It was so badly influenced that when the Federation
Starship U.S.S. Enterprise
arrived at the planet decades later more than half the planet had adopted a Human culture. The culture was based on Chicago Mobs of the 1920's.
Okmyx is the most powerful crime boss on his planet and he tried to use the Enterprise Crew
to grab more power over his planet. Captain James Kirk
of the Enterprise convinced the mob that the Federation was the biggest mob of the world and that he was taking over and would allow them to get a piece of the action. This would allow him to escape with his crew and give the Federation time to figure out what to do next to fix the contamination problem. Leonard McCoy
however left his communicator on the planets surface and this may change the Iotian culture again.
Bela Okmyx was created during the original Star Trek levitation show.
