When Star Trek refers to /humanoids,/ it usually means something like 
"looks a lot like humans, but not a species from Earth." Basically, 
whenever you create an alien race by sticking prosthetics to a human 
face, that's a humanoid. Monkeys, mugatos, and so on may be similar to 
humans in shape, but wouldn't be considered humanoids. This difference 
is more true of the original /Star Trek/ than later shows, as they 
started getting the science more accurate.

I don't know whether Okrand was thinking of the Star Trek definition of 
/humanoid,/ or something more general.
