There are references to this term in "Beyond the Farthest Star" and "The Royale" for anyone interested. --Alan del Beccio 01:44, 18 December 2006 (UTC)


Oppose I don't like this idea of condensing M/A into list pages. This is an independent, individual unit that can have its own individual article, just like every other concept that appears as its own individual article on this site. This certainly isn't how it works in a "real" encyclopedia, and I see no reason why it should be any different here. We are not the Borg. --Alan 01:10, 15 June 2007 (UTC)

We should not merge things just because we can. Nor should we keep things separate just because we can. If a number of short articles are very much interrelated, then sometimes they are better together than separate. I think that is true for the separate articles we currently have on temperature scales, and the four articles we have on ESP ratings.
As for "real encyclopedias", they certainly do have entries that sometimes just refer you to a more comprehensive entry else ware in the volumes, and we should not let the constraints of paper encyclopedias dictate how we organize an electronic encyclopedia.
With redirects able to point to sections, there is no good reason not to group certain things, any article can still link to absolute zero, and the redirect makes it work just fine as a link to the correct section of this article, and then instead of having to click on Celsius, Fahrenheit, Kelvin, and Onkian those items are right there where they can be easily compared. —MJBurrageTALK • 12:52, 15 June 2007 (UTC)


False infoEdit

Later, it was discovered that the insectoid ship's energy accumulating wands, which collected many types of energy, were causing the sensors to return false data. The heat was being absorbed by the wands, leaving none to be detected.

A piece of Fix-it fic. Nothing of this was said or even hinted at in the episode, only that the ship's temperature was absolute zero. -- Capricorn (talk) 11:06, March 17, 2018 (UTC)


In "The Royale", Geordi La Forge states that the planet Theta VIII has a temperature of −291 °Celsius, which is theoretically impossible. It is referred to as "Fahrenheit" in the script.

I have removed the above background note as a nitpick. --| TrekFan Open a channel 11:48, March 17, 2018 (UTC)
