Unnamed raceEdit

Looking at the episode transcript, the inhabitants of Ilidaria don't seem to be named. -- Capricorn (talk) 10:31, July 28, 2014 (UTC)

I checked, and as you know, they could just as easily subtract the "a" for all we know. Do they really need an article if all we know about them is they can occasionally be on the testy side? --LauraCC (talk) 15:51, August 22, 2015 (UTC)

If they were named either in the episode or by background sources they get an article, if not they don't - how much we know of them doesn't play into it. Could you clarify what you mean by that comment though; where did you check, what were the results, and what do you mean by the substracting an "a". Sorry, but I just can't seem to parse that sentence. -- Capricorn (talk) 17:26, August 26, 2015 (UTC)

Here: [1], and what I meant is, you can't just assume and add an "n" to the end of their name because, for instance, Breen aren't called "Breenians" just because "Breen" is the name of their planet. Similarly, Ilidaria people could have an as yet unreferenced name for themselves that isn't formed by adding one letter to the end of their planet's name. --LauraCC (talk) 17:31, August 26, 2015 (UTC)

Transcripts can't be trusted for spelling and are completely irrelevant to discussions like this. On a more positive note, I did some proper looking into this (instead of of just offhandedly posting to the talk page) and I think I have a handle on the issue now: Ilidarians were mentioned in Cathexis, though they were not explicitly linked to the planet from Parallax. seems to make that connection in its text on Ilidarians, but also says that the name of their planet was unspecified. That's confusing, but since that's only bg note worthy, it can be dealth with easily. Ok, I'll do a rewrite of the article to incorporate all this now :) -- Capricorn (talk) 20:20, August 28, 2015 (UTC)
