SpellingEdit

Removed the following nit per MA:NIT:

On the Nomad schematic displayed by the Enterprise's computer, the word "magnetohydrodynamic" is misspelled; the "r" is missing.--31dot 10:22, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

If the only source we have for this term is the schematic, and the schematic says "magnetohydodynamic", shouldn't the page be at Magnetohydodynamic vernier-pulse?– Cleanse 06:23, 29 June 2009 (UTC)
Yup, which makes more sense as then it would be a made up term, as opposed to a term about underwater propulsion. --OuroborosCobra talk 07:13, 29 June 2009 (UTC)
Well, it doesn't necessarily mean water - Hydrogen is a component in most space related vehicles, this should be no different. But It should be moved since it matches the screen...There's a lot of speculation as well... — Morder (talk) 07:16, 29 June 2009 (UTC)
No, it means water. Hydrodynamics is the study of fluid in motion, not hydrogen. Magnetohydrodynamic propulsion is a method of propulsion for seagoing vessels. The "hydro" root does not mean hydrogen in all (or even most) cases, flat out. Hydrology is the study of water, not hydrogen. --OuroborosCobra talk 09:02, 29 June 2009 (UTC)
Sure, I just meant they might have attempted to use it as such :) I meant to say "this could be no different" :( — Morder (talk) 09:06, 29 June 2009 (UTC)
Since it was, in the end, meaningless technobabble, I removed the following speculation:
  • Judging from the name and the probe's mission, this device was presumably utilized for making precise measurements of magnetohydrodynamic activity, the study of electromagnetism through fluids, in determining the existence of life.

MergeEdit

Formally suggesting that this and all other components be merged with the Nomad article. --LauraCC (talk) 19:30, December 23, 2016 (UTC)

Along with :

Listing here rather than putting merge tags on all the pages - they're all going to the same place. --LauraCC (talk) 17:03, December 31, 2016 (UTC)

Oppose. All technologies mentioned on screen ought to have pages, there should be no difference if they were mentioned in dialog or seen on a screen or seen in a list. I know a similar merge was done in the past with some Apollo components labeled on a graphic sourced from real life, but treating in-universe stuff feels like a fundamentally different thing. That decision set us up for a slippery slope that we shouldn't slide off now. -- Capricorn (talk) 13:07, January 3, 2017 (UTC)

Well, if you can justify it, okay. Good to have feedback. --LauraCC (talk) 19:37, January 6, 2017 (UTC)
