Citing generic termsEdit

Does this really need a citation? It's such a generic term you'd have a hard time finding a specific citation for it. For instance, there are not specific citations for the entry of starship, so does this need one?Logan 5 16:04, 15 Jun 2005 (UTC)

I checked starship, and space station and generic terms like that, unless citing a specific ship or station, or technical specifics, don't seem to have citations. I've removed it for now but obviously it can be put back if the community thinks it necessary. Logan 5 16:07, 15 Jun 2005 (UTC)
Perhaps add specific references to airlocks, like instances where 'throwing someone out the airlock' is used or other citable links, like the fact that Jake Sisko and Nog often watched girls coming through the airlocks at DS9( Actually, they weren't airlocks, they were security doors from the Inner Core to the Promenade. It's been established(in non-canon)that all the sections of Deep Space Nine are so securedGul Reid 20:10, 16 Jul 2005 (UTC)). Add some Star Trek references to the article and make it more than a simple wikipedia definition. --Gvsualan 16:26, 15 Jun 2005 (UTC)
Yeah, I agree. The citations for landing pad are a good example of that. But I'm still not sure that they are required in the sense of a PNA any more than space station requires a PNA. If someone wants to add them they should be encouraged to do so, and to cite them.Logan 5 16:33, 15 Jun 2005 (UTC)

"Water-lock"? Edit

Should this page include info about the area used early in Star Trek Into Darkness? Roger Guyett has referred to it as a "water-lock", which might be more suitable? --Defiant (talk) 12:26, May 28, 2013 (UTC)

This page should include the info about how airlocks also work with water, as only a madman would add a water only "lock" on a ship that's suppose to be in space most of the time. - Archduk3 19:49, May 28, 2013 (UTC)
First, waterlock is sodium polyacrylate, and, secondly, submarines used airlocks. The idea is, I think, to keep the air in a vessel, thus, why something is named "airlock". Lastly, I think the madmen here are the writers who thought placing a starship in an ocean was a "cool idea". When I think about some of the things in this film, I am reminded of this quote, Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn't stop to think if they should.
