It's not easyEdit

Alert signal excelsior

This seems to agree too.

There is more to the usage of "green" than what is indicated here. While the only reference I can find to "Condition Green" was made in "Bread and..." it really not made in a reference that would suggest the term in comparable to "yellow" or "red alert". The rest, TOS: "The Corbomite Maneuver", "The Enemy Within", "Obsession", "Turnabout Intruder" ; TAS: "The Terratin Incident" ; TNG: "Encounter at Farpoint", all make reference "green" – as in "green light", "status report, green", "ship's condition normal, all area status lights are green" or "the board shows green. All go" – and have even mentioned during a red alert: "Battle stations. All hands to battle stations. Battle stations. Battle stations. All decks acknowledge. All decks acknowledge, sir. All stations show green," as noted in "Balance of Terror". The term was also used in a 20th century context during the rocket/missile launch in "Assignment: Earth". --Alan 04:44, 7 June 2008 (UTC)

I know this is a bit old, but what does the community suggest that could be done about this page? It seems to me that the name needs to be changed to either (simply) Green (color), or the most common usage of this color "alert", and the whole thing rewritten and expanded accordingly. I would like to point out I don't know what the most common usage is, assuming there is one. - Archduk3 07:04, January 27, 2010 (UTC)

Removed from page Edit

Condition green was the normal operating condition (cruise mode) of a starship.

Reason: incite on page since 2008; see also section above. -- Cid Highwind 16:55, January 8, 2012 (UTC)

The use of the word "green" implied "all is well" in the context of a fleet using red and yellow alerts, and could conceivably be used to mislead eavesdroppers concerning the true meaning of the code.
This, and other known code phrases like chess problem were applicable only under certain circumstances and rarely used. Presumably, such codes were part of a "play book" devised by Captain Kirk and his officers to cover a wide range of scenarios. (TOS: "Whom Gods Destroy")

Not cited, speculation. -- LauraCC (talk) 21:44, October 31, 2016 (UTC)
