I would like to propose that this article be moved and re-titled "Third Battle of Deep Space 9" (no definite article), with a disambig linking to the First and Second Battles as referring to the Klingon attack seen in "The Way of the Warrior" and the Dominion attack in "A Call to Arms." What say ye? -- Sci 07:38 6 JULY 2012 UTC
- Let's move it, like the name, "Third Battle of Deep Space 9."--TyphussJediVader 10:52, July 6, 2012 (UTC)
i'd say no. haven't there been more than three battles at deep space 9? how do we know which ones are important enough to be numbered? arbitrarily?
All right, let's name it Battle of Deep Space 9 (2383). I like that name.--TyphussJediVader 19:16, July 6, 2012 (UTC)
- So far as I know, there have only been three battles at Deep Space 9 -- the Klingon attack in 2372 and the Dominion attack in 2373. Combat during operation return never actually reached DS9; once the Allied fleet broke through Dominion lines, combat ceased. No other battles took place at DS9 during the series. There was a rogue Jem'Hadar attack in Avatar, but such rogue attacks don't seem to warrant a "Battle of..." title (a similar such attack in the episode "To the Death" never got that title on Memory Alpha or Memory Beta), but I suppose we could call that the Third Battle of Deep Space 9. Beyond that, I'm confident there have been no battles at DS9.
- I'm surprised you're "confident" of that fact when Deep Space 9 has been featured in dozens of games, novels, comic and RPG modules that all have individual situations not addressed by your comment. There were large Dominion attacks during the Telepathy War, huge Klingon fleet actions traveling by in Lightstorm, etc., from the Malibu Comics line - a series that also featured large fleet actions attacking/defending the station from non-canon aliens - a trend that carried through to the Marvel series as well. Also, it seems rather arbitrary that you would choose to disregard a significant occasion the Avatar attack as not deserving a name. Regardless, I appreciate the fact that we can agree on a reasonable naming convention. -- Captain MKB 17:56, July 8, 2012 (UTC)
