This page could be useful, but it's a dead end. Is there some episode reference that can be included so that there are links present? -- Mjwilco 19:01, 17 Oct 2004 (CEST)

  • Well, the Kelvin is used in the technobabble, so there must be possibilities for references. I should be allowed to exist. As for episode references and the dead end problem, I can't think of any right away. -- (Toddas 19:09, 17 Oct 2004 (CEST))
    • I searched scripts of DS9 and TNG, and found two instances where Kelvins are used. Added those episodes as references. (Toddas 19:51, 17 Oct 2004 (CEST))


Oppose I don't like this idea of condensing M/A into list pages. This is an independent, individual unit that can have its own individual article, just like every other concept that appears as its own individual article on this site. This certainly isn't how it works in a "real" encyclopedia, and I see no reason why it should be any different here. We are not the Borg. --Alan 01:10, 15 June 2007 (UTC)

We should not merge things just because we can. Nor should we keep things separate just because we can. If a number of short articles are very much interrelated, then sometimes they are better together than separate. I think that is true for the separate articles we currently have on temperature scales, and the four articles we have on ESP ratings.
As for "real encyclopedias", they certainly do have entries that sometimes just refer you to a more comprehensive entry else ware in the volumes, and we should not let the constraints of paper encyclopedias dictate how we organize an electronic encyclopedia.
With redirects able to point to sections, there is no good reason not to group certain things, any article can still link to Kelvin, and the redirect makes it work just fine as a link to the correct section of this article, and then instead of having to click on Celsius, Fahrenheit, Onkian, etc those items are right there where they can be easily compared. —MJBurrageTALK • 12:50, 15 June 2007 (UTC)
