He did it in the movies, too, Skipper. Mount "Suh-LEE-uh" instead of "Seh-LAY-Ah", for instance.
And it was "BAH-lock".
To me, the way he pronounced it sounded as if it rhymed with "phallic."

It always seems odd when a character pronounces a name differently than the other characters, when in-story, it's a name that he would have only heard from the others, and not read.
Of course, in RL, the actor may have seen the name typewritten in the script pages but not yet heard it pronounced. That doesn't explain, however, McCoy's mispronunciation of "sehlat" immediately after Amanda says it in the same scene!
