There are MA articles under both Borka VI and Bokara VI for the same planet mentioned in "Face of the Enemy". Obviously, they both can't be right. I've just had a chance to watch the episode on DVD. Interestingly, although the subtitle says "Borka VI", it sure sounds as if Marina Sirtis says "Bokara VI". What do people think is the right way to correct this in MA?

Typically, script spelling "beats" subtitle spelling, because the latter is often done by people not involved in the initial production. The script I just checked has "Bokara", so this article is the correct one and the other should be merged to it. -- Cid Highwind 13:40, 29 July 2006 (UTC)

Decision is up to the shooting script, where it is spelled "Bokara VI". However I think it is worth to mention the misspelled DVD subtitle on the page in order to make it searchable -- Kobi 13:21, 29 July 2006 (UTC)
And possibly keep it in as a redirect, just so that people don't recreate it later :) -- Sulfur 13:24, 29 July 2006 (UTC)

OK, so Borka VI should be come a redirect to Bokara VI, and a background note added to the "Bokara VI" page to discuss the discrepancy with the DVD subtitles (and, I suppose, the StarTrek.com site, which I just looked up and has the planet listed as "Borka VI"). Sound good? --TommyRaiko 13:28, 29 July 2006 (UTC)

That would be my suggestion, yes. -- Sulfur 13:34, 29 July 2006 (UTC)

Cool. Makes sense. And that's what I've just done. Thanks. --TommyRaiko 13:45, 29 July 2006 (UTC)
