Please note that we only accept proper in-universe images for character pages and such. The image you provided for Janeway was from a production point of view and only acceptable for the file on Kate Mulgrew. If you have any trouble please ready this for an explanation as to what POV is. Thanks. :) — Morder 21:25, 18 June 2009 (UTC)
Please check the dates of the discussions you reply to- you responded to one started in 2005 and last commented on in 2008.--31dot 02:51, April 15, 2011 (UTC)
Please note that we do allow apocryphal sections. These sections can (and do) include interesting tidbits from novels, comics, games, and so forth, with the idea that they do not go into every little bit of detail. They are generally (but not always) accompanied by links over to Memory Beta, which often has more detail on such things. As such, please do not continue to arbitrarily remove information citing MA:NOT. -- sulfur (talk) 16:27, February 4, 2013 (UTC)
- yeah, but that was random - some odd XMan thing...

- Yes. My understanding is licensed stuff is MB and non-canon. Though, I'm probably biased a LOT. I don't think any article should have apocrypha/non-canon stuff... Yesterday, I jokingly referred to TOS/Pre-Season4TNG and Pre-Season4 DS9 as non-canon. :) I've been with Trek since I was 12 (I may have been in 4th grade when What You Leave Behind aired...)

- I meant because I thought they were terrible... TNG made Starfleet look like the Loveboat - complete with Wil Wheaton in spandex on capital-punishment-but-somehow-paradise-planet. DS9 is a fantastic noir version, looking at actual human conflict, and can be interpreted through the lense of WWII, the Arab-Israeli conflict, &c. but really examined what it means to be real Kassorlae (talk) 17:01, February 4, 2013 (UTC)
