Anyone else ever notice that the two ships on the cover are Colonial Viper Mark II's from Battlestar Galactica? – AT2Howell 21:39, 23 June 2008 (UTC)

After 40 Eridani, other stars are listed as 88 Eri, 198 Eri...etc. Is Eri short for Eridani? – AT2Howell 04:13, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

Yes. -- captainmike 05:15, 18 July 2008 (UTC)


Should "The Builders" be listed as "Builders", "The Builders", or the "Great Builders"? – AT2Howell 17:09, 27 July 2008 (UTC)

Yes. -- captainmike


Leonard McCoy uses GalLat, GalLong, and DistArbGalCore to tell a Romulan where to send a signal. Given the lack of knowlege the average Romulan has on the United Federation of Planets, it isn't too big a reach to believe this is a system the Romulan Star Empire uses. And what about L. A. Plex? It was a town that Leonard McCoy assumed the Romulan capitol would look like. Upon seeing the location, he said it looked more like Old New York City. Where is the problem? Do you want to add these to even more pages consisting of long lists? – AT2Howell 02:59, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

LA is short for Los Angeles -- add your observations to that article, would you?
GalLat is short for "galactic latitude", GalLong is short for "galactic longitude" and DistArbGalCore is short for "distance from arbitrary galactic core". This isn't a Romulan system at all, in fact, in the previous Rihannsu novel these terms are used by a Federation communique. Please stop making assumptions based on your incomplete comprehension -- this "big of a reach" makes for incorrect articles, see? If you don't understand and have to make a "big reach", maybe you should stop pointlessly adding incorrect data to articles and refrain from writing what you do not know. -- captainmike 03:11, 6 August 2008 (UTC)


In Chapter Thirteen H'daen tr'Khellian has "a blue-brown bruise" under his eye, but in Chapter Eleven a bruise on his face is "greening", which is more believable since Romulan blood is green.

This is an example of an observational fallacy - after all, human blood is red but our bruises turn greenish as well. I'd say all these colors are likely appropriate -- it is not at all encyclopedic to add commentary on whether they are 'believable'.

However, listing how Romulan bruises look (without the commentary on how the believability strikes you) would and should be added to a bruise article :) - captainmike 16:27, March 11, 2017 (UTC)
