Deletion rationale Edit

Simply put, non-canon. -Mdettweiler 20:30, March 5, 2010 (UTC)

Discussion Edit

  • Support if it's non-canon then it non-belong (little joke). Plus, there isn't one lick of citation on the page (which is invaribly due to it not being canon).--Obey the Fist!! 20:32, March 5, 2010 (UTC)

  • Delete this and the adjoining image as non-canonical. --Golden Monkey 21:23, March 5, 2010 (UTC)
  • Delete if no source information on this can be found, merge with Constellation-class or USS Hathaway if a source can. --OuroborosCobra talk 21:27, March 5, 2010 (UTC)
  • Delete as it stands now. Were escape pods ever mentioned in relation to the Stargazer? If they were(or were for anything else), we can do as Cobra suggests.--31dot 00:35, March 6, 2010 (UTC)
  • Keep There are 10 articles for the various types of escape pods. Captain Picard escaped the loss of the Stargazer, his first ship, on an escape pod of this type. Dream Focus 05:09, March 6, 2010 (UTC)
Comment - You might want to read the canon policy, as novels are not canon on MA. - Archduk3 06:41, March 6, 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, just read that. In Star Trek The Next Generation, there was an episode where the Ferangi found the Stargazer, and they mentioned Captain Picard had abandoned it. How did he abandon it? Did he use escape pods? I'm thinking he probably did, since there aren't enough shuttle craft for the entire crew. If anyone has a transcript of that episode, they can search for mention of the pods. We know that class of ship existed in the series. We know of two notable examples of it being listed. We know that all ships had escape pods in them. In the book it says they had "dozens of fifteen-person escape pods". Are there official Star Trek books and DVD collections listing every ship there is and information about it? Surely this is found somewhere else. Dream Focus 08:02, March 6, 2010 (UTC)
Do you really think that it makes sense to write an article based on speculation of what should fill a hole of what wasn't told to us? An article based on what isn't there? What if he escaped on a shuttlecraft? What if the crew was picked up by another ship? Escape pods aren't the only answer, and even if they were, we don't have any actual information to write an article on them. Only a lack of information. --OuroborosCobra talk 08:07, March 6, 2010 (UTC)
If we we're to have an article on this, am I'm not saying we should, but if we did it seems just as likely that the type of (non-canon) lifeboat from the Constitution class would be used, since I don't remember the Constellation class having visible escape pods on the hull. In fact, there are no visible escape pods or lifeboats on the cross section from Star Trek: The Magazine, seen here, so it seems unlikely that a large escape pod would be in use on this class. - Archduk3 09:29, March 6, 2010 (UTC)
