FA nomination (Dec 2004 - Jan 2005, Failed)Edit
I think that this is a good article that is growing. Luke80.
- I disagree. The article at least needs a cover image, a better "plot summary" and needs to be wikified (including links). Additionally, there still seem to be some errors (NGC 400 vs. 434, for example) -- Cid Highwind 11:21, 2004 Dec 31 (CET)
- Agreed with Cid. Objected, for now. Ottens 14:37, 16 Jan 2005 (CET)
Needs (expert) attentionEdit
- Needs to be formatted and restructured
- Needs some links to other articles
- Needs expert attention: Is it NGC 400 or 434? Is it really "Nummer Ein" ("Nummer Eins" would be the correct german form)? ...
-- Cid Highwind 19:02, 2005 Feb 2 (CET)
- In the book, the man's name is indeed "Nummer Ein". The author was probably unfamiliar with German grammar and so Anglicized the Germanic form of "Number One".

- i dont think any of the 3 planets culture origins are shown so it is not neccessarily supposed to be truely geman but maybe just germanic,though i may be wrong(i havent read the book in a bit)
The pocket (1999) edition of this book refers to the system exclusively as NGC 434, so I've updated the page to suit. -- Sulfur 19:22, 5 June 2006 (UTC)
I've removed the two items in the Inconsistencies section of the article, which I believed were not accurate. They were these:
- Although Spock clearly identifies "Mickey" as a brown rat (Rattus norvegicus, of the family Muridae), the book later refers to it as both a mouse and a rat at various points.
I cannot find the word mouse in the novel. As far as I can see, the animal is consistently referred to as a rat (or beast, animal, rodent etc). If someone finds it being referred to as a mouse, please quote the passage here.
- When Anna Shickle rescues Enterprise landing party from the jail cell, she mentions that Bavarya's technicians long lost the ability to produce new templates for the planet's clones. Soon after she contradicts herself by stating that Nummer Ein plans to use bodies of the landing party members to produce new clones.
What Anna says is this: "We are going to the duplicating banks. There is but one set. Long ago our technicians lost the ability to build new ones." What I believe she's saying is that they lost the ability to make new matrices from which duplicates can be generated, but they still can make duplicates from the matrices they already have.
