:It's on a case by case basis dependant on how much information there is to spread around. As a general rule I'd suggest it's common practice to separate characters, and probably ships, while everything else stays combined until it reaches a point where it's more practical to split them up. Ships and characters are more changeable between realities, while planets have still been around for millions of years; species are more or less the same; scientific principles and technology function the same way. So it's only when there's a really major difference, or huge amount of information that we'd need to split them rather than use alternate reality subjections on the "prime" page. --[[User:8of5|8of5]] 22:10, 20 June 2009 (UTC)

Ten ForwardAlternate reality entries (Reply | Watch)

What is the reasoning for separate Alternate Reality entries for people and places in the new movie? The reason I ask is I noticed there was no information regarding Delta Vega in the new movie, but was unsure if it should just be it's own section of the Delta Vega page or whether it should be started under Delta Vega (alternate reality)? I know there are some things like Vulcan that has the info. on the same page. What should we be using? And are the character pages an exception to this?
