Picard quoteEdit

Did not picard say the same exaggerated remark when Pulaski replaced his heart (samaritan snare)? The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).

More than once, it would seem:
PICARD: "Furthermore, any rumours of my brush with death are greatly exaggerated." (TNG: "Samaritan Snare")
PICARD: "Reports of my assimilation are greatly exaggerated." (Star Trek: First Contact)
I recall those, at least. --OuroborosCobra talk 09:15, 15 January 2009 (UTC)

Real Twain informationEdit

Is it okay to assume specific details of the real-world historical Mark Twain's bio apply to this character just because they are not directly contradicted by his appearance in Star Trek? The birth and death dates are, to the best of my recollection, not directly supported by the TNG episode or any other, and if what the article states about him never once going to San Francisco during this period is correct then we should probably assume the show's Mark Twain is not identical to the historical Mark Twain in every detail (given that we know he is not). 14:10, May 10, 2015 (UTC)

The very basics such as who he was and what he was known for can go in there, but anything else should be restricted to what was seen or heard in canon. --| TrekFan Open a channel 16:26, May 10, 2015 (UTC)
I'm all for removing the birth and death dates; they aren't canon, aren't important to the article, and well... that's exactly why we have external links. -- Capricorn (talk) 20:54, May 10, 2015 (UTC)
I agree. --| TrekFan Open a channel 21:00, May 10, 2015 (UTC)

Re: Shatner as Twain on Murdoch Mysteries Edit

William Shatner plays Mark Twain in an upcoming episode of the ninth season of "Murdoch Mysteries".

I would argue that it is relevant. See A Christmas Carol. Unless the Patrick Stewart, etc connection isn't relevant either? What do you think? --LauraCC (talk) 16:18, June 2, 2015 (UTC)
