The Avery System was not named for Avery Brooks but was named for a talented young actor AVERY FANE - he was grandson of Star Trek writer Jeri Taylor's best friend. – The preceding unsigned comment was added by Shadowycat (talk).
- Do you have a source for this? If so, it can be changed in the article. And, for future reference, remember to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~). Thanks -- TrekFan 18:35, 20 August 2008 (UTC)
Merge Reason Edit
According to "MA:NOT", it is stated, Although there are a great many gaps in our knowledge about the Star Trek universe, Memory Alpha articles are not the place for personal opinions. Don't write an entire article on a speculative subject – if we don't know, then leave it blank. The name Avery III is not given in the episode "Faces". It is stated in the episode, We have completed our survey of the Avery system and are returning to retrieve Lieutenants Paris, Torres and Durst. By now, they should have concluded their inspection of the magnesite formations on the third planet. As the name is unknown, we should merge this page with Unnamed Delta Quadrant planets.Lakenheath72 (talk) 22:00, April 4, 2015 (UTC)
I have revoked the merger notice, upon further study and reflection. According to "MA:RESOURCE", StarTrek.com is a valid resource for the names of unnamed places, and I have made note of where the name is from.Lakenheath72 (talk) 14:03, April 5, 2015 (UTC)
How do we know this planet was in the Avery system? It'S never stated in the episode they simply said they completed a survey of the Avery system and were headed for crew members on "the third planet". However, they never say what system the planet is in, so,it's speculation to assume this planet was in the Avery system. And if this planet was third in the Avery system, we're still speculationing but saying it's named Avery III simply for its planetary position in what system it's in. Using that logic the "Jardan sector planet" in the Unnamed Alpha and Beta Quadrant planets page is Torona IV because it's the fourth planet in the Torona system.

- Since the survey was of the Avery system, any planet being worked on would presumably be in that system. Plus, if Janeway was leaving the Avery system to pick up crew in another system, it would be very odd that she wouldn't mention where she was going and what the crew was doing there. The language doesn't work well for that possibility, you don't just say "on the third planet" without having anything in your log entry clarifying of what system. -- Capricorn (talk) 20:50, November 15, 2016 (UTC)
