Alpha Aradoni IIEdit

The captioning on the DVD spells this system Alpha Aradoni. It sounds like Aradoni too, I know we all would love it to be Eridoni because it's a real star, but no matter how many times I hear the word, it always sounds like Aradoni. --TOSrules 22:13, Dec 16, 2004 (CET)

  • Yeah, I'm going to have to agree on that one. It at least requires some fancy redirect work, one way or the other. --Alan del Beccio 16:27, 23 Oct 2005 (UTC)
    • Okay, I'm going to have to take back what I said. It is awfully hard to argue with the fact that on Google, Alpha Eridani II = about 18,200 hits; whereas Alpha Aradoni = about 122 hits(!!). I still think it is worth keeping the latter as a useful redirect. --Alan del Beccio 16:37, 23 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Alpha Proxima IIEdit

I've just watched the episode on DVD and did never here "Alpha Proxima II". In addition, the transcript [1] also nowhere has the planet's name in it. Is it maybe from the script or were any scenes cut for the DVDs? It's listed in virtually any ST Database on the Internet, but I cannot find it in the episode! Kennelly 12:16, 23 Oct 2005 (UTC)

I didn't see any displays at all in the episode,only normal visual screen showing nothing if not specifically ordered to. The computers back then unfortunately had no LCARS or background displays just a bunch of blinking lights. Once the computer verbally gives the list of unsolved murders and says "Additional Examples exist". Maybe this example being Alpha Proxima II was cut out for time reasons. BTW, I don't have it at hand is maybe the ST Encyclopedia more specific? Kennelly 16:39, 23 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Yeah, sounds reasonable to me (did some quick Google Search and came to the same result as you-far more references to Alpha Proxima II than to Alpha Eridani II, though the latter was spoken in the episode). So, as this planet is non-canon, shouldn't we delete it now and remove it from all references (I'm specifically thinking of all the articles about Alpha Centauri, Proxima Centauri etc. ?Kennelly 17:37, 23 Oct 2005 (UTC)

  • Probably should keep it as a useful redirect, as it is obviously highly referenced and someone is bound to recreate it on down the road if it is removed. I suppose then we could modify the link to this page on the other pages your reference to background notes stating that there might be a place called "Alpha Proxima II"-- or something like that. --Alan del Beccio 18:42, 23 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Removed section Edit

The real world star Alpha Eridani (or "Achernar") was located approximately 139 light years from the Sol system. According to Captain Jonathan Archer, in ENT: "Two Days and Two Nights", set in 2151, the farthest that Humans had traveled at that point was 90 light years. As Alpha Eridani II was colonized by Humans, this would suggest the colony was established some time between 2151 and 2156.

This is an example of original research and is the reason for it being cut from the page.Throwback (talk) 21:08, July 13, 2014 (UTC)
