The Memory Alpha server automatically generates dumps of the MediaWiki database every night. These XML dumps are available for download for backup purposes and for offline reading. You can click the link below to download the most recent backup of the database. Only the current version of each page is included in the download. As of March 2008, these downloads are approximately 118 megabytes in size.
Alternatively, you can go to the dumps directory and download the full database (~672 megabytes, compressed, as of July 2008).
- As of November 2009, it appears that the dump files are now stored at http://memory-alpha.org/wiki/Special:Statistics.
