Need Klingon Battlecruiser Info/Tech Data Edit

Am attempting to build a 4 foot long Klingon Battlecruiser (from Star Trek VI) and HMS Bounty/Bird of Prey (3 ft.wingspan). Anyone out there like to share info with me? Want to super detail both and add lighting system. Would really appreciate some input. Thank you! BOB - SCORPIO1EFX (at) AOL (dot) COM 17:32, 6 Sep 2004 (CEST)

With respect to your question you can take a look at http://www.ex-astris-scientia.org of try http://google.com and search for 'klingon battlecruiser' this will give you a large amount of links. I hope this answers your question. -- Q 17:49, 6 Sep 2004 (CEST)

First paragraph Edit

RE:

  • ...in order to achieve a higher speed in a similar sized hull. This design was due to an early 20th century naval theory that "speed is armor". The intended purpose of the battle cruiser was for scouting in advance of the main battle line, as well as screening the battle line from cruisers or smaller vessels while the battleships engaged their opposites in the enemy fleet. In practice, battle cruisers tended to be used to strengthen the main battle line because of their armament. This led to many disasters as they were not durable enough to engage battleships.

Is the first paragraph relevant to Star Trek? Where was any of that mentioned? It seems to me that the article should start with the second paragraph.--31dot 13:01, 1 December 2008 (UTC)

It was supposedly written for clarification in contrast to what was there before. --Alan 01:03, January 22, 2010 (UTC)

Naming Edit

Shouldn't it be "battlecruiser?" Battleship isn't "battle ship," and the real world term is one word. --Kevin W.Talk to me 01:42, January 21, 2010 (UTC)

It should be whatever it was in the script. I don't have access to scripts so I am not sure which is right. We could have either spelling as a redirect(and leave the other as the article itself).--31dot 01:49, January 21, 2010 (UTC)
The logic here might work if light cruiser was "lightcruiser", and heavy cruiser was "heavycruiser", but they are not. What primary source states that the 'real world term is one word'? From what my spell check tells me, and more concretely, what most standard American English dictionaries, like Merriam-Webster, American Heritage, and Random House, use the two word spelling: "battle cruiser". And while wikipedia suggests that it is the other way around, I suspect the reason why the link to the that spelling on this site was removed was because it was considered incorrect and was being overused, creating a lot of 'bad links'. --Alan 01:03, January 22, 2010 (UTC)
