Numerian vs Numirian Edit

Shouldn't this be the "Numirian" Inquisition, in reference to the Numiri species encountered in "Ex Post Facto"? 03:55, August 11, 2013 (UTC)

What evidence do you have this was a reference to that episode? 31dot (talk) 09:29, August 11, 2013 (UTC)

The reference came from Tuvix's lips. Considering that Tuvix was a fusion of Neelix and Tuvok sharing a consciousness, it is "logical" that he would make a reference to a species known to both of them, since Neelix's knowledge of the Alpha Quadrant would be limited. The Numiri had been encountered less than a year prior. Plus we know that the Numiri were aggressive, paranoid and had a harsh judicial system. When Tuvix was pleading for his life and noted the Numirian Inquisition, he was on the Bridge with Paris who was the victim of the Numiri, surely as a way to garner sympathy. 14:45, August 11, 2013 (UTC)

That is not evidence; it is an assumption combined with speculation. He could have just as easily been referring to some other event. I would also not described what happened in "Ex Post Facto" to be an "inquisition", which has a specific meaning and generally involves combating large groups.
In order to claim a reference to another episode, we would need a statement from Trek staff, a passage in a reference book, or some other evidence that there was an intention to draw a reference. I highly doubt such evidence exists, but if you find it, feel free to post it here. 31dot (talk) 20:14, August 11, 2013 (UTC)
