Re: THIS IS BALOK!

Like I said, I think the episode itself made it clear that the First Federation's approach to new contacts entails putting on a big bluff -- making an intimidating show to conceal how small and harmless they actually are. Balok presented himself as the scary cadaverous guy with the deep menacing voice, but then turned out to be this cheerful, child-sized guy. By the same token, the Fesarius's bulk was probably mostly for show.
