I know transcripts are poor evidence, but the Arena transcript seems to call this Arcanis (as in Arcanis Lager). And complicating things, DS9 mentions an "Archanis" several times in a context that suggests it is a world, not a star. (though that's probably shorthand for Archanis IV). Anyway, my point being that this article might benefit from a fact check with the original scipt. Anyone have it? (I'm looking at you, Defiant) -- Capricorn (talk) 17:49, August 25, 2012 (UTC)

Before writing this page, I first went to the transcript because I remembered a third star being mentioned. I know that the site has issues with spelling. So, I went to Startrek.com which is far more reliable on this matter [1]. So, I proceeded with their spelling. In "Day of the Dove", Archanis IV was mentioned as being the location of a research outpost where an illusory brother of Chekov was posted. So, we have a star and a planet in orbit of this star.Throwback (talk) 03:35, September 6, 2012 (UTC)

Fair enough on the spelling, but appart from Startrek.com which isn't canon, what evidence is there to say that Archanis refers to a star. Take this quote from "Apocalypse Rising". (lifted from here):

Gowron: You want the war to end, then the Federation must allow us to annex Archanis and the other worlds we've seized

Sounds like Archanis refers to a planet here. The same episode mentions a "raid on Archanis", though I admit that that's more ambigious. I've looked through transcripts and scripts and can't find anything pointing to Archanis being a star. Though I might have overlooked something, haven't rewatched the episodes. -- Capricorn (talk) 21:00, September 6, 2012 (UTC) Scrap all the above; I've misread your comments. -- Capricorn (talk) 21:03, September 6, 2012 (UTC)
