Deletion rationale Edit

The creation of this category has not been discussed - and if it had been, it probably wouldn't have been created in the first place: The category has a wrong POV (in-universe, we don't know if those aliens were really named after earth mythology), the title is too lengthy. If this is supposed to be production POV commentary, it should be a background section at some mythology-related article instead, not a category. Delete. -- Cid Highwind 11:33, 8 December 2006 (UTC)

Discussion Edit

  • Delete. Some of these are no even inexplicable. Medusan (a member of the category) has the following:
The Medusans are obviously named for the Greek mythological character of Medusa whose sight was so hideous that anyone who laid eyes on her was turned to stone.
So yeah, let's get rid of this. --OuroborosCobra talk 13:55, 8 December 2006 (UTC)
  • Delete quick, fast, and in a hurry. --From Andoria with Love 18:41, 8 December 2006 (UTC)
  • We shouldn't even be discussing this... lol... just delete it. -- Renegade54 19:29, 8 December 2006 (UTC)
  • Delete. I was going to say "What in the hell was [[user]] thinking!", but it was an IP user... --6/6 Neural Transceiver 07:27, 11 December 2006 (UTC)

Admin resolution Edit
