Could this page being categorized as Settlements?? Gifhtalk13.03.2009 10:53 (UTC)

"Settlements" is a list of individual settlements, of which Category:Colonies already is a sub-category/list. This article is about the settlement "class", not about a single settlement, so it wouldn't really match that categorization. With standard links from this page to the matching list category and back, I don't really see the need for it, either. -- Cid Highwind 10:56, 29 June 2009 (UTC)

Background: Speculation or MA: "Make omissions explicit"? Edit

I recently added a lot of material to the article. And just now made some minor corrections, such as changing "interstellar" to "interplanetary" (colonies can be in the same star system), link fixes, etc. I also expanded the "Background" section, and that's what concerns me.

I'm not sure if the section now contains speculation or rather makes clear what's unknown, as per the Memory Alpha: Make omissions explicit guideline. It'd be good if someone could examine it to see whether it's the former or latter: I don't want to add speculation, but I also wanted to point out the uncertainties related to colonies and member worlds of governments. There's little canon information on the subject, but some non-canon (though permitted) resources do contain some info. Anyone with a better perspective should amend it as necessary.

Also in line with making omissions/missing material known, I think the article could use significant expansion. I enlarged it as much as I could, but I'm sure others could help.
