Deletion rationale Edit
No relevance to canon Trek. It's a page about a guy who gets a ship named after him in a game. Heck, even if it was a canon ship, it still wouldn't get it's own page, only a small background note.

- Can anyone fix this and NOT delete it?!22.214.171.124 00:46, 5 May 2008 (UTC)
- Its notable on Star Trek Beta, should be notable here. This is in homage to one of the USMC. 126.96.36.199 01:00, 5 May 2008 (UTC)
It's not a problem of notability, or quality of the article. It's just that MA is for canon Trek (films and episodes basically). Memory Beta is for all the books, games etc. Ermey has done nothing in relation to canon Trek (neither as an actor nor mentioned) and as such doesn't get a page here.

- Can this be MERGED?184.108.40.206 02:19, 5 May 2008 (UTC)
- It can be, but please don't expect all the information in the page to remain in the Armada II page. At most, there will be a note in the background saying something like "there is a ship called the USS R.L. Ermey, which is a reference to actor and retired USMC Drill Instructor/Gunnery Sergeant R. Lee Ermey." The rest of the info won't be able to remain. --From Andoria with Love 02:23, 5 May 2008 (UTC)
- Delete & Merge. With all due respect to GySgt. Ermey & the USMC, this page should be deleted and a background note added regarding its contents to Armada III for all the reasons already listed. –Topher 05:59, 5 May 2008 (UTC)
- Merge & Delete. I like Shrans idea and it sounds good. This sentence with a wikipedia link for Mr. Ermey and the rest up for deletion. – Tom 11:54, 5 May 2008 (UTC)
- Merge & Delete. A small note on the Armada page should cover it.--31dot 18:52, 5 May 2008 (UTC)
Admin resolution Edit
- Since this really makes more sense as a direct merge... merged. The redirect still exists, so that's really what this PfD is now for. :) -- Sulfur 19:12, 5 May 2008 (UTC)
