Ford truck Edit

The 37s -- Should we include more information, such as the Model T truck led Voyager to the 37s in the first place? Or is that too leading? -- Fleurdelista 05:58, 11 December 2008 (UTC)

Actually, that's not a model T...those went out of production in the 1920s. Otherwise, information on the vehicle you mentioned is found under Truck, and more specifically Ford truck. -- Alan 06:06, 11 December 2008 (UTC)

Fair enough. Still learning the ropes here :D. Thanks! -- Fleurdelista 06:08, 11 December 2008 (UTC)

Identification Edit

I've just found that interesting website IMCDB - From Cardassia with pain 23:46, September 22, 2011 (UTC)

Changed this a little Edit

I edited this because in the Star Trek universe, automobiles are not "Earth vehicles," since they are present on a variety of worlds, and also the dates were a little off. There were still automobiles on Earth in the mid-22nd century (not the early 22nd century as was mentioned in this article) we saw in Enterprise and by the JJ Abrams Trek films we see them on the streets of Riverside, San Francisco and London, and even though it is an alternate reality, a thing like that wouldn remain unchanged. -- Noah Tall (talk) 17:37, July 27, 2013 (UTC)

From Talk:Horseless carriage Edit

The way I understand it "horseless carriage" was not a specific brand/type, just an early term for automobile, so I say merge. Kennelly (talk) 14:33, January 10, 2016 (UTC)

That's also the way I understand it. So, support a merge. Tom (talk) 14:51, January 10, 2016 (UTC)

It refers to the "Brass Era automobile," which refers to vehicles from the 1890s-1915ish. It's not just another word for automobile. It refers to the cars of the era. But whichever way is cool with me. -- Noah Tall (talk) 10:30, January 11, 2016 (UTC)
The way I see it, "Brass Era automobile" refers to a specific generation of vehicles, and if that term were mentioned they would deserve an article. But "horseless vehicle" as the term was casually used in the episode is just the general word for automobile that happened to be in use in the same era in which automobiles were of the Brass Era automobile type. Subtle point I know, but I think that means we should merge. -- Capricorn (talk) 15:46, January 16, 2016 (UTC)
