pna - the episode "references" need to be removed from the bottom of the page and placed with the corresponding sentences/paragraphs, leaving only "appearances". --Alan del Beccio 04:54, 27 Sep 2005 (UTC)
Coridan civil war Edit
Where did the Coridan civil war come from? Although it is a mystery how a thriving 22nd century planet became underpopulated in the 23rd century, there isn't a real explanation of what happened. There are a number of possibilities as to what really happened. Unless someone has a reference, how about moving speculation to the bottom in italics?--Mike Nobody 08:28, 24 Oct 2005 (UTC)
Recent removal/re-addition of informationEdit
- Some speculate that a centuries long civil war decimated the Coridan population.
I guess it was removed because it unnecessary speculation. -- Cid Highwind 21:10, 28 Nov 2005 (UTC)
- The reason for its removal was discussed at my talk page here. --From Andoria with Love 21:36, 28 Nov 2005 (UTC)
I added the origin of the name Coridan, I could've put more but wasn't sure it was appropriate/neccessary. Cory 04:15, 30 October 2006 (UTC)
- "The name Coridan originates from the poetry of Virgil, specifically Eclogue II."
A shepherd named Corydon is featured in "Eclogue II". The names sound very similar, granted, but do you have a source for the writers basing the species name on this exact character from Virgil's work? If not, this would be just speculation which we couln't add to the main article. I didn't find anything in the The Star Trek Compendium, can you give us your source? --Jörg 10:04, 30 October 2006 (UTC)
In the spirit of the philosophy that "qualifiers are bad," perhaps "Coridanite" should be the primary article title, with Coridan being the planet article title, with a disambig link at the top of the page of course. This is based on the idea of a) uniqueness b) the last name, chronologically, to be referenced to this species. --Alan del Beccio 05:16, 17 November 2007 (UTC)
- I second this motion. They are referred to by each name on screen. JafJaf
Which is it?Edit
So, which is it, "Coridanite" or "Coridan"? The article seems to switch back and forth between the usage of the term, and the images use the term "Coridanite" --Terran Officer 06:26, May 29, 2010 (UTC)
- I'm pretty sure this article should be renamed "Coridanite," although I can't recall what episode that's mentioned in. -Angry Future Romulan 21:11, June 4, 2010 (UTC)
