The following documentation is transcluded from Template:USS/doc:

This template is intended to simplify the wikicode needed for properly italicizing a starship's name, such as:

[[USS Yamato|USS ''Yamato'']]

The template allows for up to three variables:

  1. Ship's name
  2. Disambiguation (if any)
  3. Textual postfix (if any)
{{USS|Shipname|Disambiguation|Postfix text}}


The simplest use is with the ship's name, such as:


USS Yamato

Use of the single variable version should be avoided if a name has been given to more than one ship, unless the object is to direct the user to a disambiguation page. An example of this would be:


USS Enterprise

To use a link to a disambiguating starship name, enter the disambiguation text as the second variable to the template:


USS Exeter

Please note that for ship names listed with a letter following, such as USS Enterprise-D, that letter that should given as the third variable which is postfixed to the name (unlike the typical third variable which is the entire text):


USS Enterprise-D
