- It seems logical. Perhaps a redirect from distress call? Andrew 18:18 PST 1-26-05
Where does the casualty figure of 376 during the Whale probe incident come from?
Also,shouldn't the last paragraph refer to the 1st Borg incident? Kennelly 13:54, 7 Feb 2005 (CET)
- Gvsualan 00:52, 9 Apr 2005 (EDT) -- Removed the following for the lack of source or accuracy:
- -Starfleet General Order 6 requires its officers to respond to distress calls made by Federation citizens It is Starfleet's policy however, to answer all distress signals.
- -The planet Earth has only used the planetary distress signal twice in it's history.
- -376 people died as a result of the weather and power loss.
- -The second time that the planetary distress signal was used on Earth was in 2373, during the second Borg incident. A Borg cube traveled through the federation, and destroyed a large amount of the Federation's defenses. The Federation president issued a state of emergency when the Borg cube entered the SOL System.
Planetary Distress Protocols? Edit
Where does the information about how a planetary distress call is issued and who can issue it come from? I seem to remember nothing being mentioned anywhere about this.

This article appears to have a lot of uncited information and speculation and, near as I can tell, information extraneous to Star Trek. For example, the story of the SOS signal and the Titanic was not stated in Trek to my knowledge. And why rehash the events of Star Trek IV after the distress signal was sent? I may play with this one a bit (unless someone else would like to volunteer?) Aholland 04:42, 11 March 2006 (UTC)
