I haven't edited the Mojavé page, but I did a little research; the only sites that came up on the fist page of a Google of "Mojavé" were Memory Alpha, your website, and some foreign-language websites. I contacted the Mojave Chamber of Commerce and the Kern County Board of Supervisors; both confirmed that "Mojave" is the correct spelling. It's not a Spanish word, per se; since the name is derived from the Mohave Indian tribe, the accent on the "e" is inappropriate; it is inconsistent with the accepted pronunciation (moe-HAA-vee,) anyway. Were it spelled "Mojavé," it would be pronounced "moe-ha-VAY." I don't remember how Pike pronounced it, but I used to live there, and only tourists said "moe-ha-VAY." 68.8.249.31 14:12, 5 Apr 2005 (EDT)

As you've since seen, I edited the instances in the body in the article, only after you changed the title. Didn't want to step on any toes. 68.8.249.31 17:34, 6 Apr 2005 (EDT)

Which Mojave is Captain Pike From?Edit

Is there evidence that Christopher Pike actually comes from the city in California named Mojave? He does say he is from a place called "Mojave" in the dialogue and recognizes the landscape created by the Talosians as it, however why could he have not meant, for example, Mojave County in Arizona, the Fort Mojave Indian Reservation (in multiple US states), Mojave Valley, (also in Arizona), or any of a number of other places also named Mojave? He might have even been talking about a yet unnamed Mojave as far as I can tell. --ВорЧа (talk) 19:00, April 26, 2017 (UTC)

Well, let's see. Pike doesn't identify the landscape as Mojave, he gestures at the city in the background as being it - and this is confirmed by both versions of the script that circulate online [1] [2] (at around scene 80). Beyond that, StarTrek.com in its entry on Pike describes him as a resident of "Mojave, Calif" [3], while the encyclopedia goes another route and describes Mojave simply as [the] "southwestern region of the North American continent". Still, going by canon we very clearly have a "town", not some county or other area, called Mojave. Are there other cities by that name? -- Capricorn (talk) 12:02, April 30, 2017 (UTC)
The only towns (well, technically "census designated places") I know of or could find by that name are "Fort Mojave" and "Mojave Valley" however neither is simply called "Mojave" as the city in California is. Both are near Bullhead City, in the Mojave Desert and in Mojave County, Arizona, and both are also on the aforementioned reservation. There was also in the 19th Century a town called "Mojave City" near the other two but it is now a ghost town. The town "Mojave" in California is just called Mojave and is also a "census designated place" in the Mojave Desert. --ВорЧа (talk) 16:10, May 1, 2017 (UTC)
