Mars vs. Theta 116 VIII Edit
Theta 116 VIII Class C or K? Edit
I don't know how someone decided that this was a Class K planet. If you freeze the image on the tape for the episode "The Royale" [TNG], you can see that the screen shows Theta 116 as a class C transjovian planet.
- Here's a DVD screenshot from the episode. You can clearly see that it is a "Class K Transjovian" planet. Compare the K with the C on the top in "Planetary scan" and you'll see that the "C" in this font looks quite different. --Jörg 08:47, 23 October 2006 (UTC)
Might it be that "Transjovian" refers to the planets past Jupiter in the Solar System? Excepting Saturn, of course, which is another gas giant like Jupiter. But after that, are Uranus and Neptune, icy, rock-based planets. They're much bigger than Earth. Since they have a solid surface, and lack the crushing atmosphere of Jupiter, theoretically one could survive there in a protected habitat, in an enclosed environment with the right temperature and air, etc.
