Disambiguation and Death cause[edit source]

I'd like to ask whether the disambiguation is necessary. As we have previously discussed here, the Burkett in the Hatteras File could be the same guy as the Omicron one. But that can't be verified.

About the death cause, I think it's an improper one. First, it's obviously that Burkett was killed by Henderson's henchmen, so the words "Helicopter crash" may make us feel that it's an accident. Secondary, we can't be sure that he was really killed in the helicopter crash. I mean, Henderson's men could've just poisoned him, put him in the chopper and crashed it. So I don't know whether we should correct the CoD or just simply removed it?

There are manny CoDs listed as "Killed by XX" in many characters' pages, which I think is improper too. --William 10:41, October 28, 2011 (UTC)

I agree that we came to the conclusion they could be the same person, so we could remove the disambig.
I think the CoD is ok - it's true that perhaps he died in many other ways, but helicopter crash is all the show gives us. Kind of like how Bob Peluso and Arthur Rabens are highly unlikely to be their real names, but as we aren't given any alternative, we use that to name their articles and refer to them. There's nothing definitvely stating that they didn't all coincidentally die in freak accidents!
As for "killed by XX", I guess that is a bit dodgy.--Acer4666 (talk) 12:32, October 28, 2011 (UTC)
I guess you could put "helicopter crash (allegedly)"--Acer4666 (talk) 12:33, October 28, 2011 (UTC)
Since no one else replied, I'll go change it. --William 04:00, November 5, 2011 (UTC)
So we're treating this as the same character, sounds reasonable to me as per the archived discussion on my old talk page above (Henderson was both CTU and Omicron, so I suppose these two scientists working with Tony and Jack for some joint task in the past isn't too unbelievable either).
Burkett will need a "Before Day 5" section describing the Hatteras File conclusions and Michael Gravel. Also, I don't exactly agree with Acer in the above post: it's very clear that Burkett, Gravel, and the other guy were indeed murdered. For CoD I believe it's very safe and reasonable to say "Murdered by Sentox conspirators (framed as accident)". Blue Rook  talk  contribs 04:44, November 5, 2011 (UTC)

Actor[edit source]

Any chance that the lead graphic artist Olivier Benamou made a photo cameo as the scientist? They both seem to have similar twisted right ears. --William (talk) 18:55, November 8, 2019 (UTC)

I don't think they seem like the same person - Benamou's face is a lot thinner--Acer4666 (Talk) 12:01, November 10, 2019 (UTC)
