Inaccurate Edit

Where originates the designation "tanker"? In the episode, it is named as "that Klingon ship isn't much more than a freighter." No word about a tanker. I can see the fact that it is carrying deuterium tanks but the shipclass is identified. Tom (talk) 12:40, January 31, 2016 (UTC)

Good question. The term isn't used in dialog for any episode, at least according to Chakoteya... --LauraCC (talk) 20:33, January 24, 2017 (UTC)
Because it passes the duck test: you know if it quacks like a duck...or rather if it carries a liquid, it must be a tanker, by definition. --Alan del Beccio (talk) 20:45, January 24, 2017 (UTC)
Actually, the word "tanker" appears in the script of VOY: "Caretaker", the series bible for Star Trek: Voyager, and the script of TNG: "Pen Pals" (the latter 2 of which are publicly available online). --Defiant (talk) 00:25, January 25, 2017 (UTC)
Hmm...--LauraCC (talk) 22:01, January 25, 2017 (UTC)
