Merge Edit

Couldn't this be on the Vidiian article, maybe in the sidebar as classification? On the other side I am confused. Was the reference in the episode a "class 3 humanoid" or "class 3 humanoid organism"? We shouldn't have both links, one as a redirect, if only one term was used. Tom (talk) 18:21, October 31, 2016 (UTC)

Well, the implication is that there are other class threes in existence; that's why the class exists. --LauraCC (talk) 18:26, October 31, 2016 (UTC)

I see. The question is, this one reference is a valid article? The redirect can also be listed on the disambig. page. And the identification implies just a "scientific" name for a Vidiian. Tom (talk) 18:45, October 31, 2016 (UTC)

"The bio-scanner picked up a single class three humanoid organism". That's the dialogue in question. There is also Class 5 humanoid. So apparently this is a classification system similar to planets, so I don't really see why it should get merged. Kennelly (talk) 18:51, October 31, 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for the dialogue. But my point is, these classifications are just about one species. The articles have little content so a merge with the species they're citing and a redirect could be even more useful. Or a combined page which is listing these classifications for a better understanding/general view could be another option. Tom (talk) 19:04, October 31, 2016 (UTC)

If it gets merged, humanoid should be the target (of both pages). Kennelly (talk) 19:23, October 31, 2016 (UTC)
I've suggested something at MA:CS as a result of reading this discussion. --LauraCC (talk) 19:24, October 31, 2016 (UTC)
Oppose. I don't see why this would have to be merged at all. This is clearly some classification Starfleet uses, it wasn't something made up on the spot - and why should it matter how many examples we have? We don't have a single example of a Class N planet, but it deserves an article as much as Class M.
(though, if it gets merged, I agree it should go to Humanoid) -- Capricorn (talk) 23:52, October 31, 2016 (UTC)

I removed the merge tag as there seems no consent as how to deal with it. Tom (talk) 11:43, December 8, 2016 (UTC)
