Deletion rationale

It's kinda weird that Lucille Ball was put up for deletion on the grounds of her "non-involvement" with Star Trek, but Desi here hasn't been. There is absolutely no connection between Desi and Star Trek, and certainly not the one alleged by the article. (See Talk:Desi Arnaz). It comes to this: he was out of Desilu in 1961, Roddenberry's pitch wasn't until 1964. Truly, the only scrap of connection is that he's the (estranged) father-in-law of Lawrence Luckinbill. Clear miss. Delete with speed. CzechOut | 01:52, 16 October 2007 (UTC)

Discussion

  • Delete. I agree. 31dot 02:07, 16 October 2007 (UTC)
  • Tentative delete. I can't disagree with the logic for deletion. The fact that every episode of Star Trek TOS ended with the "Desilu" logo made my initial reaction a keep, I hadn't realize he was completely out of the studio before the Roddenberry pitch. So... I guess delete... but it doesn't feel right.Hossrex 05:21, 18 October 2007 (UTC)
Just as an aside, the Desilu logo wasn't on every TOS episode; it didn't survive into the third season. CzechOut | 07:51, 20 October 2007 (UTC)

Admin resolution

  • Worth keeping some of his information, so I've merged it into Desilu for now. It needs some reworking yet, but I'll worry about that later. -- Sulfur 21:21, 31 October 2007 (UTC)
