This page is awfully close to being a simple dictionary-type definition. - Archduk3:talk 18:28, November 29, 2009 (UTC)

I can see a potential use. It really should concentrate more on examples and citeable stuff rather than being very WP heavy. -- sulfur 18:35, November 29, 2009 (UTC)
I only created it because 17 pages linked to it's nonexistence. We could remove the page and the 17 links though I to agree it could have a purpose here. It is only a start, I linked what I could find for examples in the shows. I know there is a lot more out there but could not find some things. For example there is the Species 8472 holographic recreation of StarFleet Academy where they switched from night-mode to daytime "to better track" some of Voyagers crew who had infiltrated the simulation. I also wanted to elaborate on Night-Shifts on starships but was not sure how to proceed.--Jlandeen 18:41, November 29, 2009 (UTC)
I think as long as it doesn't just mention every time the word was used, it should be fine. Jlandeen's example is a good one.--31dot 18:42, November 29, 2009 (UTC)

Merge suggestion Edit

I reckon we should merge this page into the Time measurements article, where an entry on "day" can currently be found. --Defiant (talk) 22:21, October 19, 2016 (UTC)

Oppose. I think it should stay on an own article and "day" should also get an own article where the different times of a day can be further explained and referenced. Tom (talk) 07:56, October 20, 2016 (UTC)

I'm fine with that. My main point was, whichever outcome is decided on, the entries for "night" and "day" should be dealt in the same way. If that's merging them to "time measurements", fine. If it's having both as their own separate articles, fine. :) --Defiant (talk) 09:37, October 20, 2016 (UTC)

Problem is, "day" can mean two things; a period of 24 hours, or daytime. The former fits at Time measurements, while the former doesn't, and neither does its counterpart night. -- Capricorn (talk) 12:49, October 21, 2016 (UTC)
