Never seen that one before. I don't like the shading. And he looks very old.

It comes from Where No Fan Has Gone Before if that's what you mean. It's a parody on the pictures shown over the ending credits of Star Trek.

Exactly right, Wernstrum ([prof farnsworth in a rage]Wernstrum[/pfiar].

It's a parody of a giat head seen in an episode of ST:TOS.  The head was so impressive that they started using it in the credits.

The character is named Balok (from the First Federation), and was first seen in the TOS episode "The Corobmite Maneuver".



The image is actually a fake, Balok's real appearence resemble that of a child. Balok used the fake image to test if Kirk's claims of being friendly and looking for cooperation was truthful. He first attacked the Enterprise, then faked engine failure. When Kirk offered his assistance, rather than destroying Balok's disabled ship he knew the Enterprise were sincere in their claims.

There, you probably know more about the Kif image than you ever wanted to.
