Deletion rationale Edit
Based on non-canon information. 31dot 00:52, 26 October 2007 (UTC)
- Delete ASAP – Cleanse 00:59, 26 October 2007 (UTC)
- Keep, but with drastic changes. I was under the impression that "technical manuals" were considered "canon enough" for MA, and I have a TOS technical manual (which I would be perfectly happy to scan from) which includes this class of StarShip from the TOS era. If I'm incorrect on the technical manual allowance (which I may very well be), then I alter my opinion to delete.Hossrex 09:20, 26 October 2007 (UTC)
- Addendum after research. I was unable to find my book at this late hour (will look again later), but I found these two links from MA. USS Entente is a canon referenced Dreadnought class ship, and Star Fleet Technical Manual is the book I personally own (the original vinyl covered edition), and you can clearly see a dreadnought class ship in the only pictures on this page. This is a canon ship. The page up for deletion sucks, and much of it should be expunged (including the admittedly cool, albeit entirely non-canon art), but it is a real class of Star Ship.Hossrex 09:33, 26 October 2007 (UTC)
- Merge information which are canon and then delete, I don't think the pic should stay here. – Tom 11:59, 26 October 2007 (UTC)
- I maintain my Delete opinion. The page for the Star Fleet Technical Manual says that it is considered to be non-canon, even though it was at one time, I believe. The USS Entente reference is canon, but since it was not seen we do not know for certain what it looked like independently from the technical manual. 31dot 12:10, 26 October 2007 (UTC)
- But that page specifically says "Three starships from the book were mentioned by name, class, and registry in Star Trek: The Motion Picture:", and lists the Dreadnought as one of them. I completely agree that a lot of that page needs to be purged (including/especially the picture), as a lot of it isn't canon, but I see no reason there shouldn't be a page for the canon ship classification of Dreadnought.Hossrex 01:09, 27 October 2007 (UTC)
Admin resolution Edit
