Lists Edit

Are the redundant lists of Romulans/Klingons left over from previous expansion or something we're doing for all the lists? It seems like a strange idea to me in that case. --Vedek Dukat (Talk) 18:06, 26 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Unnamed Character Pages and Their Lengths (archived, Ten Forward)Edit

Greetings, as some of you have probably noticed, I have been working on Unnamed character pages (Most recently for the USS Saratoga). These pages are also becoming increasingly popular because they seem to be very easy to add to. Now, pages like Unnamed Humans and, especially, Unnamed Vulcans (which is already huge) will eventually grow to a highly expansive size (Especially Humans). Instead of keeping all of the unnamed characters on one page (And cause some massive loading), I recommend we assign various pages like 'Unnamed Humans, Page 1', that way we can sort characters and keep loading times short. Of course, this isn't really a case at present (Vulcans seem to be the biggest page thus far, along with some of the Starships, but they can, and most likely will, get very large), but it will in the future. Discuss please. - Adm. Enzo Aquarius 02:47, 18 Oct 2005 (UTC)

IN continuance of dividing the pages up by century, I suggest dividing the characters up by groups they were encountered in -- were they inhabitants of a certain city, military unit, spacecraft, station, paramilitary organization, learning institution? -- Captain Mike K. Barteltalk 08:49, 18 Oct 2005 (UTC)
According to our guidelines, any information should be placed where it can best be found. We already had that discussion about subdividing lists several times before, and I still disagree with the common practice to create deep tree structures... If I'd want to find an "unnamed human", I would look for it on Unnamed Humans - if I want to find an unnamed crewmember of starship XYZ (or any other person encountered in a specific situation), I would look on Unnamed XYZ personnel (which might even be a redirect to the starship article if there are only a few unnamed crewmembers). I really don't think that anything more complicated than that is necessary or helpful. If a list of "unnamed WHOEVER" gets too big (however that is defined), we should either find a sensible subdivision if such exists, or simplz keep it as a big list, which is a better solution than the "Page 1-X" approach in my opinion. -- Cid Highwind 10:16, 18 Oct 2005 (UTC)
One thing I've found is that if you break the unnamed characters down to the individual scenes they appeared in, it becomes obvious extras were only hired in small groups -- the largest such groupings in ST history would be the 500 extras playing the Enterprise crew in Star Trek I, even that will probably only end up occupying a subpage of Unnamed USS Enterprise (NCC-1701) personnel.
You'll probably find residents of the larger articles seem to fit more naturally towards other articles -- for example Unnamed Romulans is half commanders -- perhaps "Unnamed Romulan commanders" is the next choice of subpage. Some Unnamed Klingons could probably be IKS Rotarran personnel, etc, -- Captain Mike K. Barteltalk 21:25, 19 Nov 2005 (UTC)

Unborn babiesEdit

Like Miramanee's baby with Kirk - don't they deserve a listing? Or do they not count as characters yet on this site? Just wondering what the policy is. --LauraCC (talk) 18:16, January 27, 2016 (UTC)

How about Brin's stillborn babies? They were born, although dead. --LauraCC (talk) 21:14, February 3, 2016 (UTC)

Re: Alnitak novelist Edit

Moved from Talk:Unnamed Alpha and Beta Quadrant planets

What page would this individual go on? A new Unnamed humanoids (21st century) --LauraCC (talk) 19:13, March 29, 2016 (UTC)

But then there's nothing that says he's humanoid. Could be an eel or a gaseous lifeform. I can't find a page where this individual would go. --LauraCC (talk) 17:55, May 8, 2016 (UTC)

Resolved. --LauraCC (talk) 19:25, May 12, 2016 (UTC)

Her three ex-husbands Edit

Moved from Talk:Katherine Pulaski

Where would they be listed? Not Unnamed Humans (24th century) necessarily - who said they were all human? -- LauraCC (talk) 22:30, March 1, 2016 (UTC)

Unnamed Katherine Pulaski personnel? ;) -- Capricorn (talk) 08:58, March 2, 2016 (UTC)

Ha ha. I thought I remembered something about her being racist somewhere but I can't find it on her page. --LauraCC (talk) 16:05, March 2, 2016 (UTC)

Androidist. Not racist. -- sulfur (talk) 17:17, March 2, 2016 (UTC)

Yeah, that's probably what I'm thinking of. I would guess Unnamed humanoids (24th century), thought they're more likely to be Human than not. Just wanted to be sure. --LauraCC (talk) 17:19, March 2, 2016 (UTC)

Redirect suggestionEdit

As unnamed species pages frequently have the header "The following is a list of unnamed ____", using the "unnamed people" link anyway, why not have the word "unnamed" as a redirect? Any problems with this? --LauraCC (talk) 17:42, May 19, 2016 (UTC)

To be frank, I'm not even sure why they direct here like that anyhow... -- sulfur (talk) 17:45, May 19, 2016 (UTC)

Why isn't it more comprehensive? The lists seem to only include the most popular races. --LauraCC (talk) 17:49, May 19, 2016 (UTC)

Moved from Talk:Mark Johnson

Mark's unnamed wifeEdit

Since we can't assume his wife is definitely Human or that she changed her last name to his following their wedding, where would be the best place for her? I added a link to uUnnamed humanoids (24th century). Just checking to see if that's the best option. --LauraCC (talk) 17:40, March 9, 2016 (UTC)

Moved here. I KNEW there were more. --LauraCC (talk) 18:24, May 20, 2016 (UTC)

Moved from Talk:DimorusEdit

Sticky questionEdit

I propose the following section for a page. I just don't know whether to add it to Unnamed humanoids (23rd century) or Unnamed non-humanoids (23rd century), since the ability to throw darts may not necessarily be limited to a humanoid.

Dimorus "rodent things"Edit

These aliens had the ability to throw poison darts. Sometime prior to 2265, Gary Mitchell and James T. Kirk encountered these beings on Dimorus. Mitchell took a dart meant for Kirk and nearly died. He reminded Kirk of this in 2265 when he asked the captain why he was suddenly afraid of him following Mitchell's encounter with the Galactic barrier. (TOS: "Where No Man Has Gone Before")
--LauraCC (talk) 18:02, March 22, 2016 (UTC)

I've noticed problems like this lately when someone is referred to but never given a species. (See Talk:Katherine Pulaski) --LauraCC (talk) 17:42, March 28, 2016 (UTC)

Further Dimorus rodent things questionEdit

I've left off giving these creatures an anchor until I can determine whether they belong here or not. --LauraCC (talk) 16:12, June 8, 2016 (UTC)

They throw darts, but I guess a monkey could do that, too. Unnamed non-humanoids (23rd century)? --LauraCC (talk) 21:06, August 15, 2016 (UTC)

Structure of this pageEdit

When people see the list of pages at the top of this page, they may skim over it and not notice the individuals of unknown species listed here. I'm wondering how this page could be fixed? --LauraCC (talk) 18:35, September 13, 2016 (UTC)
