Can I make a complete list of Races?[]

There are some cases where we don't know which quadrant a race is from and as a result, the race won't be listed in any of the four "By location" races and cultures pages. I propose making a combined list of all races seen and mentioned in Star Trek on the main Races and cultures page. --NetSpiker (talk) 08:17, October 17, 2016 (UTC)

The category:races and cultures should be a complete list, there's no need to duplicate it manually - Captain MKB 19:14, October 17, 2016 (UTC)

Category:Races and cultures is not a complete list because it only includes those races that already have wiki pages. The Melikaz race currently does not have a page and we don't know which part of the galaxy its from, so it can't be included in any of the "By location" lists. --NetSpiker (talk) 07:31, October 19, 2016 (UTC)

The category has a section to fill out a manual list of missing articles until they are created. I still maintain that a complete manual list would be problematic and unwise, and I haven't seen a response from you that addresses that concern - Captain MKB 22:38, October 19, 2016 (UTC)
Additionally, races from uncertain quadrants do have a list and category: Milky Way Galaxy races and cultures. If they're from another category, there is Extragalactic races and cultures. If they're from another dimension, the title of the article and list should be Extradimensional races and cultures. If theyre from another reality there is of course Alternate reality races and cultures (or Races and cultures (alternate reality)) but my point is there are places for nearly all to be listed without having to manually maintain a large list. -- Captain MKB 22:41, October 19, 2016 (UTC)

Actually, this is the first time you’ve said anything about it being problematic or unwise and you haven’t explained why. Having a complete list on a single page would be easier to use than a list divided into 6 or more pages. --NetSpiker (talk) 05:10, October 20, 2016 (UTC)

Numbers[]

There have always been Questions and estimations on how many cultures and species there are in Star Trek...

  • Data, who should have had access to the Starfleet databases said he had studied four thousand different religious and philosophical systems and he had met 1,754 non-Human races.
  • mister Saru, after all a scientific officer, stated that in his time the universal translator was able to translate over a thousand languages. And estimated there were Hundreds of thousands of life-forms "out there".

Can one make something out of such quotes? Do other people have collected more quotes on the matter one could use for hypthesies?--Haerangil (talk) 22:41, 6 January 2021 (UTC)

I have found another interesting Quote on Jonathan Archer :"At warp 2, only a handful of inhabited planets were within a year's travel from Earth. But at warp 5, that number increases to ten thousand planets".

Now i am aware, one species can have many languages and religious/philosophical systems, and commander Data may have omitted an unknown number of cultures from his studies for reasons.--Haerangil (talk) 22:46, 6 January 2021 (UTC)
