I think Paramount should consider a Star Trek Fan Collective of Battles. the great battles of the entire series which pit ship against ship in space. enhance the picture and sound and that would be even better! The preceding unsigned comment was added by Davidohious (talk • contribs).

That's nice, but Ten Forward is for posting questions seeking a specific answer and is not meant for general discussion. 31dot 21:44, June 19, 2012 (UTC)
Well, back in the days of VHS, they did have this.–Cleanse ( talk | contribs ) 23:30, June 19, 2012 (UTC)

While that would sound fun to anybody, nerdy, geeky or neither, and while not wishing to come off as a killjoy, 31dot is correct in that this isn't much of a place for simple gossip.

However, I would be all for a page that analyzes which Enterprise ship is the strongest, most guarded, well-defended or deadliest as there's plenty of Trek fans who will discuss for hours and break down their favorite characters based on the ship's strength alone. I'm sure that would fly, right?--Spock78 08:00, June 21, 2012 (UTC)

No, because that would be speculation and original research. See MA:NOT, particularly #2 and #5 under "What Memory Alpha articles are not".–Cleanse ( talk | contribs ) 08:10, June 21, 2012 (UTC)

Okay, sorry, perhaps I'm not being clear. It wouldn't be a discussion page. Simply a complete battleship comparison with all the Deep Space Nine Manuels and other official book merchandise as sources to back this up. I'm not saying just shout out what you instinctively believe, just reiterate what the designs book demonstrate and answer numerous questions, especially since most of those books are out of print and can only be bought used.--Spock78 08:30, June 21, 2012 (UTC)

That, my friend, is precisely the definition of what Cleanse was alluding to. This isn't the forum to gather together evidence of what certain users feel are valid comparisons. This forum is to answer specific questions seeking a specific answer. 31dot 20:49, June 21, 2012 (UTC)

That's not what I said at all. We are answering questions about ship's capacity among other details by getting the information from Official Trek books and canon sites, which then answers many questions that people have concerning the ships.

Again, nowhere did I say that it would be discussion. I said it shouldn't be a discussion. If that's what the other user had in mine, then I simply agreed with the concept minus said discussion.

Books are canon last I checked unless you want to just randomly not count them as canon like you did with these videogames, which makes no sense.--Spock78 03:17, June 22, 2012 (UTC)
