Do we really know for sure that the USS Trieste was named after the Italian city of Trieste? If it wasn't stated as such somewhere, then it could have been named after the famous 23rd-century Earth scientist Alfredo Trieste. Or whatever. And the same applies to the SS Vico; was it ever stated anywhere that it was named after Giambattista Vico? Also, were the Apennines ever referenced on screen? -- Renegade54 17:36, 9 January 2007 (UTC)
- Actually, the Star Trek Encyclopedia states the "Trieste was named for the bathyscaphe in which oceanographer Jacques Piccard (for whom Captain Picard was named) explored Earth's Marianas Trench in the 1960s.". The Vico entry doesn't state what or whom it was named for. Finally, I can't find a reference or an appearance of the Apennines in Trek. --Jörg 19:01, 9 January 2007 (UTC)
- Philoust123 added the Apennines, maybe he remembers where they were mentioned. --Jörg 19:01, 9 January 2007 (UTC)
- Not mentionned and explicitly not linked, I didn't know how to deal with a subsection Mountains that contains only one reference and where two mountains exist, since that could be a major threat of edit conflict. For oceans and seas, and rivers, I've resolved the problem by putting "...". Maybe Alps could be moved to the "Geography / others" subsection. The France article is the same issue. - From Cardassia with pain 22:22, 9 January 2007 (UTC)
Removed text Edit
Until/unless we find a citation, I've removed the following background note:

- Couldn't this be said for ALL the European countries with the same degree of uncertainty? – StarFire209 17:37, 6 September 2007 (UTC)
In VOY: "Virtuoso", The Doctor describes Rondine al nido as "an old Neapolitan ballad" Neapolitan means of Naples. Should I add Naples to Italy's geography on this account or add the reference separately? --LauraCC (talk) 22:01, March 11, 2016 (UTC)
