The following documentation is transcluded from Template:Pre/doc:

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

[[IKF Falchion|IKF ''Falchion'']]

The template allows for up to four variables, but only requires two:

  1. Ship prefix (required)
  2. Ship's name (required)
  3. Disambiguation (if any)
  4. Textual postfix (if any)
{{pre|IKS|Shipname|Disambiguation|Postfix text}}

Usage

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

{{pre|IKF|Falchion}}

IKF Falchion


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:

{{pre|IKS|Taj}}

IKS Taj


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

{{pre|IKS|Taj|24th century}}

IKS Taj
