Deletion rationale

The term was never used in Star Trek, to my knowledge. As far as I know, it may not even be used universally in the military today. Star Trek always called them the dress uniform. --OuroborosCobra talk 02:50, 5 October 2007 (UTC)

Discussion

  • Delete - very likely non-cannon, content pointless when there is a dress uniform page– Cleanse 02:53, 5 October 2007 (UTC)
  • REDIRECT: Some Trek fans have been and/or are still in the military. 216.224.121.144 07:08, 5 October 2007 (UTC)
    • I respect them and their service very much, but I fail to see what that has to do with something that was never called a "class A uniform" in Star Trek. In addition, I cannot even confirm that this would be correct terminology for current military uniforms. I'm looking at the US Air Force's uniform manual (AFI 36-2903), and I cannot find the term "class A" anywhere, nor the old "class B" or "class C". --OuroborosCobra talk 07:17, 5 October 2007 (UTC)
  • Delete: A non-canon name for a style of uniform that an MA page already exists for. It deserves to be deleted for being redundant, and it deserves to be deleted for being non-canon. Double whammy.Hossrex 07:30, 5 October 2007 (UTC)
  • Delete. Redundant and non-canon. 31dot 23:35, 5 October 2007 (UTC)
  • Delete. --Jörg 09:34, 6 October 2007 (UTC)
  • MERGE. 65.163.112.225 00:07, 10 October 2007 (UTC)
    • With what? And why? It's not mentioned anywhere in canon. If it gets mentioned, then an rd might suit. Where's the terminology come from anyhow? -- Sulfur 00:16, 10 October 2007 (UTC)
  • Comment: It may have been used in background terminology, especially within Robert Fletcher's movie notes. There is a distinct difference between a Class A uniform and a dress uniform in Fletcher's notes and the US military (the Army for sure, and I believe probably the Marine Corps). Interestingly, I've never heard of "Class C" uniforms...--Tim Thomason 00:21, 10 October 2007 (UTC)
  • Neutral/Repurpose. I don't particularly care whether this article gets deleted or not. I don't recall dialogue to support the term. To the extent that the term has applicability in an in-universe perspective article, it's probably gonna have its evidence coming from production materials, not the productions themselves. However, a simple Google search does reveal the term is in wide use in the area of Star Trek merchandising, and thus the article might be repurposed as a "real world perspective" article about merchandise available for purchase. What strikes me as odd about the pattern of merchandising is that most of it seems to come from Star Trek: The Motion Picture-era, perhaps solidifying the claim, above, that it's on Robert Fletcher's Star Trek: The Motion Picture costume design sketches.

Admin resolution

  • As per consensus... delete... although Tim brings up a good point... so redirect to dress uniform. No merge done. -- Sulfur 05:46, 14 October 2007 (UTC)
