This template is intended to simplify the wikicode needed for properly italicizing a starship's name, such as:

[[ISS Excelsior|ISS ''Excelsior'']]

The template allows for up to three variables:

  1. Ship's name
  2. Disambiguation (if any)
  3. Textual postfix (if any)
{{ISS|Shipname|Disambiguation|Postfix text}}

Usage

The simplest use is with the ship's name, such as:

{{ISS|Excelsior}}

ISS Excelsior


Use of the single variable version should be avoided if a name has been given to more than one ship, unless the object is to direct the user to a disambiguation page. An example of this would be:

{{ISS|Enterprise}}

ISS Enterprise


To use a link to a disambiguating starship name, enter the disambiguation text as the second variable to the template:

{{ISS|Enterprise|NX-01}}

ISS Enterprise


Please note that for ship names listed with a letter following, such as ISS Enterprise-D, that letter that should given as the third variable which is postfixed to the name (unlike the typical third variable which is the entire text):

{{ISS|Enterprise|ICC-1701-D|-D}}

ISS Enterprise-D
