Thanatos VIIEdit

Thanatophobia is "fear of death". So, is Thanatos VII, "Death VII"?! GCapp1959 13:47, 23 January 2009 (UTC)

Most likely it would be named after the greek god of death and not the phobia. However, unless it's stated that they chose that name specifically for that reason we can't make any assumptions. — Morder 13:51, 23 January 2009 (UTC)


"Thanatos" in Greek mythology was the personification of death. Freud used the term to describe an urge for death, one of the core drives in his model of psychology. The Freudian connection is presumably why the planet was given that name in that episode.

Eh? It's first-year psych stuff. No research involved beyond having taken a basic psych course, years ago. BunsenH (talk) 01:43, February 24, 2018 (UTC)
We need more than a presumption; we need a source that definitively states the claim. 31dot (talk) 02:38, February 24, 2018 (UTC)
What about the rest of it, i.e. the first two sentences? BunsenH (talk) 16:55, February 24, 2018 (UTC)
We need a source for it that the claim was somehow relevant to the writers/production 31dot (talk) 22:19, February 24, 2018 (UTC)
