Starbase Lya IIIEdit

The episode "The Hunted" is very clear on this topic. Captain Jean-Luc Picard orders a course for Starbase Lya III. This is the full name for the base. So,why delete it? Would you like me to quote the exact line? (And, if I do create another article, say for a starbase, isn't that redundant and wouldn't it be merged?)--Airtram3 21:25, 15 February 2007 (UTC)

  • If Lya III is a planet then the content of the article should be about the planet, if it is a starbase it should reflect that. Your page move, may have been by name correct, but the page content still reflected the fact that it was a planet-- which is how I stated it in my move back: "As the article states, this is a "planet"...for the "starbase," create a new article." A planet is a stellar body, a starbase is an installation on or in orbit of said body- it would be like merging the White House or Earth Station McKinley with Earth because they have a similar association as you speak of. But if we don't know that Lya III is even a planet, that omission should be made explicit and article content made consistent with the associated page move. --Alan del Beccio 21:40, 15 February 2007 (UTC)
