I'd say those two terms, portable regeneration unit and portable regenerator describe exactly the same piece of Borg technology, just with different wording, so they should be merged. Kennelly (talk) 16:29, February 9, 2016 (UTC)

An alternative approach might be to move this into the Fictional technology category. It's hard to argue two pieces of technology are the same when one of them is less of a piece of technology and more of a piece of bs. -- Capricorn (talk) 10:06, February 10, 2016 (UTC)

I'm not arguing two pieces of technology are the same, but that both terms describe the same technological concept. Kennelly (talk) 11:13, February 10, 2016 (UTC)

If they're not the same piece of technology, then they should stay separate. -- sulfur (talk) 12:55, February 10, 2016 (UTC)

But one piece (this one) doesn't even exist!Seven simply used a slightly different name of an existing piece of technology to conceal the true nature of the mobile emitter. Kennelly (talk) 14:27, February 10, 2016 (UTC)

Call it an alias then. ;) --LauraCC (talk) 19:14, February 10, 2016 (UTC)
But it's not really an alias, not as you'd usually understand the definition of that word. If only we had some way of dealing with technology that was made up... -- Capricorn (talk) 08:30, February 11, 2016 (UTC)

Which already exists, btw. (See the technobabble Riker invents in "Rascals".--LauraCC (talk) 19:11, March 1, 2016 (UTC)
