Removed the following on account of TMI:
"...a gaseous diffuse nebula in the constellation Taurus. It is the remnant of a supernova that occured approximatley 5500 BC. Located at a distance of about 6500 ly from Earth, it has a diameter of 6 ly and is expanding at a rate of 1000 km per second. A neutron star in the center of the nebula rotates 30 times per second."
Replaced with a link to wikipedia -- since that is where it was practically copyvio'd from anyway. --Alan del Beccio 14:32, 8 Jul 2005 (UTC)
- It's just that "The Crab Nebula is an interstellar gas cloud" seems to be quite an insignificant introduction, but I guess that I am not well versed in the conventions of this website yet. Sorry Rob47 14:41, 8 Jul 2005 (UTC)
No worries. It was a pretty insignificant reference -- it didn't even make the Star Trek Encyclopedia. ;) But yeah, if you look at all of the other nebulae we have on this site they basically say that, plus whatever was mentioned about them in the episode, be it size, class, composition...etc. --Alan del Beccio 14:59, 8 Jul 2005 (UTC)
