Restoration rationale Edit

This system was referred to as system in "A Piece of the Action". The name was not mentioned.Throwback (talk) 15:54, September 19, 2012 (UTC)

Discussion Edit

I'm not clear on the rationale here- if the name wasn't mentioned, then how was it referred to as a system? 31dot (talk) 20:18, October 27, 2012 (UTC)

Captain Kirk said to Bela Oxmyx, Your system is on the outer reaches of the galaxy. This was the only time that Sigma Iotia II's system was mentioned in the episode. There were two possibilities here: the system was named Sigma Iotia or it could have been named something else, such as in the case of Beta III. Beta III was located in the C-111 system. I apologize for not being clear, Throwback (talk) 03:02, October 28, 2012 (UTC)

If "Sigma Iotia system" was not said specifically, and if we can only narrow down the chance it was referred to as such to 50-50, I'm thinking this should stay deleted. Unless I'm missing something else. 31dot (talk) 12:20, October 28, 2012 (UTC)

I don't see a problem with restoring this and just adding a bg note that the name of the system isn't 100% clear, since the system itself was referenced, and we don't have a unnamed systems page. - Archduk3 20:12, October 28, 2012 (UTC)
Maybe having an unnamed systems page, or something similar, is worth exploring. There's bound to be more cases like this, and if an "xx system"-type article can both be about a factually named system, or an unnamed one named by convention that's not going to be very elegant. -- Capricorn (talk) 01:09, October 31, 2012 (UTC)
Super late, but that sounds like a good idea. - Archduk3 10:02, January 20, 2013 (UTC)
