Miri's Earth (remastered)


Just some food for thought:

  • SPOCK: "Measuring the planet now, Captain. It's spheroid-shaped. Circumference: 24,874 miles. Mass: 6x1021 tons. Mean density: 5.517. Atmosphere: oxygen, nitrogen."
  • RAND: "Earth."
  • KIRK: "Not the Earth, another Earth. Another Earth."

--followed by--

  • KIRK: "Captain's Log, Stardate 2713.5. In the distant reaches of our galaxy, we have made an astonishing discovery. Earth type radio signals coming from a planet which apparently is an exact duplicate of the Earth. It seems impossible, but there it is."

--after beam down--

  • KIRK: "Identical. Earth, as it was in the early 1900s."
  • SPOCK: "More the, er, mid-1900s I would say, Captain, approximately 1960."

Seems we could come up with something better than "Miri's homeworld" from this. --Alan 15:36, 17 July 2008 (UTC)

Kirk called it Another Earth twice. --TribbleFurSuit 02:28, 18 July 2008 (UTC)
Do we have a script reference showing the "a" in "another" to be capitalized, making it a proper known as opposed to an descriptor that would not be a name? --OuroborosCobra talk 02:40, 18 July 2008 (UTC)
Earth (duplicate) perhaps? This would be consistent with USS Enterprise (replica).– Cleanse 05:26, 18 July 2008 (UTC)
No "name" (read: "article title") that we give it is actually going to be a name, but only a descriptor. I concede that its proper name is not "Another Earth". --TribbleFurSuit 05:35, 18 July 2008 (UTC)
I know, I know: Spock said "duplicate" but I don't like it. "Duplicates" and "replicas" appear all the time in Star Trek, but that's when copies of an existing thing have been created, deliberately or accidentally, instead of when a second naturally-occurring one already exists too. How about Earth (Hodgkin's parallel)? --TribbleFurSuit 05:53, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

Or like the German MA did, call it Earth (doppelganger).... --Alan 23:39, 27 February 2009 (UTC)


We need to reconcile the two theories of this planet's creation that appear in the Background section. --Italianajt 16:20, 7 July 2009 (UTC)


Technically, wouldn't it go in Unnamed Alpha and Beta Quadrant planets? But because so much is known about it, I can understand creating a page of its own. --LauraCC (talk) 19:41, February 1, 2016 (UTC)

As a matter of convention homeworlds get articles even if the name isn't known. So oppose. -- Capricorn (talk) 03:19, February 5, 2016 (UTC)
