Tactical alert to Red alert Edit
- Could you specify the episodes, please? --From Andoria with Love 09:39, 27 May 2009 (UTC)
- In ENT: "Singularity", it is hinted at that Lieutenant Reed had developed the term red alert, as it was jokingly referred to as "Reed alert". It was never mentioned again, but tactical alert screens all over the ship later displayed "Alert Condition Red".
- I think it's at least worth mentioning. The term "Reed alert" was pretty clearly meant to convey that Reed's new protocol would later become the "Red alert". Unfortunately there's no canonical continuation of this thought, so even if there's no way to verify that Reed alert did in fact become Red alert, at least it was the first Starfleet use of this type of general-readiness protocol. If there's no disagreement on this, then a modification of the earlier section should be added to reflect this similarity. 126.96.36.199 04:04, October 27, 2010 (UTC)
This article requires cleanup, the paragraph at the bottom hasn't got an episode link, when it's obvious it should have. --Jono R 22:50, March 20, 2010 (UTC)
Defense Condition One?Edit
Defense Condition One? Really?
Not according to my DVD copy of Star Trek III. The Klingon equivalent to Red Alert in STIII was Battle Alert, not Defense Condition One.
Tense of articleEdit
Why does the article use past tense when defining Red Alert? RE:
"One stage above a yellow alert, this status had weapons systems and shields brought to full power, essentially preparing the ship for combat."
Had can be has, or tense can totally be removed, RE:
"One stage above a yellow alert, in this status weapons systems and shields are brought to full power, essentially preparing the ship for combat." 188.8.131.52 19:07, October 11, 2013 (UTC)QC
- This may refer to the fact that there are multiple levels of red alert status, like double red alert, that the entire ship would remain at red alert for the duration, or that certain aspects of red alert, such as manning battle stations, can be stood down while allowing other aspects, such as charged weapons, to remain active.
