Connection to diburnium-osmium levelsEdit

Looking at those graphics, I see no evidence that the "diburnium-osmium" thing is connected to the metaphysic shield. It seems as if it is an infographic on "Shield Strenght", which looks at the diburnium-osmium levels in one place, and at the metaphysic shields in another, without clearly implying a connection. -- Capricorn (talk) 02:38, September 20, 2013 (UTC)

Heck, there's even mention of a "defensive array", further suggesting the possibility that they might be separate systems. -- Capricorn (talk) 02:47, September 20, 2013 (UTC)

When I first saw the name of these shields, I thought to myself, Do these shields defend the ship by talking about the nature of reality? As for what the interface is communicating, I couldn't tell you. I am struggling myself to understand what is being communicated.Throwback (talk) 03:07, September 20, 2013 (UTC)
We would need a statement from somewhere if it was intended as an in-joke :) to say that in the article. But anyways I think it is sufficently ambiguous now about the connection to the diburnium-osmium levels. --Pseudohuman (talk) 03:12, September 20, 2013 (UTC)

I appreciate that it now no longer explicitly says that the one is connected to the other, but it still feels like that diburnium-osmium levels info doesn't belong on this page. Given how it is presented as some kind of general metric in the graphic, wouldn't Diburnium-Osmium Level warrant it's own article though? That would make more sense to me. Oh and @Throwback; yeah I lolled too when I saw that name! :-D -- Capricorn (talk) 03:30, September 20, 2013 (UTC)

That would be unnecessary as there are pages for both those elements already. --Pseudohuman (talk) 04:02, September 20, 2013 (UTC)

I think you were missing my point there though; I'm not talking about pages on those elements, but a page specifically about the Diburnium-osmium level, ie the kind of page that would end up categorised in Category:Measurements. -- Capricorn (talk) 04:13, September 20, 2013 (UTC)
