Does it make sense for the disambiguation page to not use the generic title Galaxy? I would move this page to Galaxy and the contents of that article to the existing redirect Galaxy (universal body). Any opinions? -- Cid Highwind 19:16, 31 Aug 2004 (CEST)

Definitely not. The decider for disambiguation is if all meanings are equally notable as that word, and are likely to be linked as that word. I think the celestial body (universal body is a really bad designation) outstrips all the others in that regard, so it should be at the main article title, which is why I made the move the other way in the first place.
From Memory Alpha:Disambiguation: "If there is one primary definition of the title, the more important subject should go on the main, simple title, and add brief links to the other special uses of the term." Since there is more than one alternative meaning, this would clutter the page, making the (disambiguation) sub-divider necessary. -- Michael Warren | Talk 20:04, Aug 31, 2004 (CEST)
  • Evidently this fact has been outdated. --Alan del Beccio 07:17, 15 Sep 2005 (UTC)
