Revision as of 17:23, July 7, 2010

Stub?

I'm not sure this article really is a stub, at least as far as Memory Alpha is concerned. This is after all a Star Trek wiki, and Babylon 5, while awesome, was not a Star Trek series. As it stands right now I believe the article contains all the information that it should for a series that is closely connected to but not part of the Star Trek franchise. Unless anyone objects, I'm going to remove the "stub" tag so that we don't end up with an article on B5 of equivalent length and/or detail to those of TOS, TNG, DS9, VOY, or ENT.--Antodav 22:42, December 17, 2009 (UTC)

This article should probably be deleted. Babylon 5 has almost nothing to do with Star Trek at all. The only way that it is relevant is that DS9 was accused of plagiarising it, and that can be mentioned on the DS9 page.The preceding unsigned comment was added by 205.222.248.208 (talk).
This was originally created as a redirect to Science fiction references in Star Trek#Babylon 5, which makes a little more sense. The only purpose this article seems to serve now is to list actors from Star Trek who were in Babylon 5, which we don't do for other shows. --31dot 13:22, April 15, 2010 (UTC)
Except Doctor Who. Which should also be merged. *sigh* -- sulfur 13:23, April 15, 2010 (UTC)
I say we merge it then.--Obey the Fist!! 13:26, April 15, 2010 (UTC)
I stand corrected. :) --31dot 13:28, April 15, 2010 (UTC)
These article have been agreed upon and contested by nearly the same amount of people, albeit in different places. - Archduk3 16:59, April 15, 2010 (UTC)
If this article (and Doctor Who) are kept, it would make sense to add the Trek reference from the parodies and pop culture references page and a table with the performers who appeared in both series from Science fiction references in Star Trek, on the model of Doctor Who. But I understand if nobody wants to do that, if the fate of the page is up in the air. —Josiah Rowe 03:15, July 2, 2010 (UTC)
I would say just go for it. Worst case, the info gets split between the SF references and P&PC references pages when the info is moved there, it's not like these pages would be deleted outright. - Archduk3 03:25, July 2, 2010 (UTC)
OK. I've added the Trek reference, plus another that should have been on the "parodies and pop culture references" page (I hope nobody's going to dispute that "Deep Space franchise" was a dig at DS9). I'll make the table for performers and another for production personnel later. —Josiah Rowe 03:55, July 2, 2010 (UTC)
I've finally finished the table for actors, and will do one for the production folks tomorrow. —Josiah Rowe 05:05, July 6, 2010 (UTC)
OK, the production personnel table is completed. I may come back and fiddle with the formatting on the actors table, to use the "rowspan" element the way I did for Richard Compton, Harlan Ellison and D.C. Fontana in the staff table, to keep horizontal elements together (though I don't know whether that will mess up the sortability). —Josiah Rowe 17:47, July 6, 2010 (UTC)
Where is Bill Blair ? ;) – Tom 18:07, July 6, 2010 (UTC)
Was he ever credited on either series? I suppose we could add him, but he doesn't have a page on the B5 wiki... —Josiah Rowe 18:12, July 6, 2010 (UTC)
No, he never received credit for his appearances on both, Trek and Babylon 5. But he appeared in almost every B5 episode. Have a look for his official page. I think the B5 wiki should start an article about this actor and add images like we do here on this wiki for his Trek work. It would become a full gallery. – Tom 18:21, July 6, 2010 (UTC)

Good to know. As an aside, do you know whether the date sorting would still work if the dates were in a human-readable format instead of the ugly YYYY-MM-DD format? —Josiah Rowe 20:26, July 7, 2010 (UTC)
Not if you still want it to sort by year, since there's no way to change how it sorts, at least as far as I know. - Archduk3 17:23, July 7, 2010 (UTC)
