RunaboutEdit

  • "Deep Space 9 briefly possessed a Starfleet runabout named the USS Yukon, which was named after Canada's Yukon River or Yukon Territory (adjacent to Alaska and British Columbia). (DS9: "Sons of Mogh", "By Inferno's Light") In 2375, the USS Gander (another runabout, named after Gander River in Newfoundland or the town of Gander, which has a long history as a military airbase) was stationed at Deep Space 9. (DS9: "Penumbra")"

Danube class runabout were been named after rivers and not state or cities. If I remember, after loosing a runabout, Kira says that fortunately there are a lot of river on earth. - Philoust123 14:07, 30 April 2006 (UTC)

Good call, it was DS9: "Family Business", when they christened the USS Rubicon. I made a note about that in the page, and tweaked the text a little bit to suit. -- Sulfur 14:16, 30 April 2006 (UTC)

IrrelevantEdit

  • "In DS9: "Family Business", after a new runabout was named the USS Rubicon, Major Kira noted "You know, at the rate we go through runabouts, it's a good thing the Earth has a lot of rivers.""

This is irrelevant and has nothing to do with an article about the nation state of Canada. Why is it here? I move that we should remove it immediately. Objections? --Captain MAJ =/\=|**** 20:31, 22 September 2006 (UTC)

I think the note needs reworking, but helps to enforce that the Runabouts are, indeed, named after two rivers in Canada rather than something like a town or country. - Enzo Aquarius 20:34, 22 September 2006 (UTC)

I still don't think It's needed. The Article clearly states already that the runabouts are named after rivers. It's redundant. This note should be moved to the Danube class page. --Captain MAJ =/\=|**** 20:41, 22 September 2006 (UTC)

I agree. It's more of an overall observation on Danube-class nomenclature than of anything specific to Canada. It just so happens that those two particular Danube-class runabouts happened to be named after Canadian rivers. If the note said that "all Danube-class runabouts were named after Canadian rivers", then it might belong here. -- Renegade54 20:46, 22 September 2006 (UTC)

I'm going to go ahead and move it to the Danube-class page then. --Captain MAJ =/\=|**** 20:49, 22 September 2006 (UTC)

ottawa link Edit

Does anyone have a higher res image of this? File:Cage-screen-16-Northern-Hemisphere.jpg? It would be strange if a map of canada didnt have the capitol on it. --Bp 01:31, 7 October 2006 (UTC)

Oh, it'll have a little star where Ottawa is/should be. But still doesn't mean that the city should be have an article of its own. Having the mention in the first paragraph (or so) I think is sufficient. -- Sulfur 01:43, 7 October 2006 (UTC)
Updated. What you see, is what you get. --Alan del Beccio 01:52, 7 October 2006 (UTC)

Missing ProvincesEdit

In The list of provinces and Territories of Canada some of them were missing so I added Them. The preceding unsigned comment was added by 70.48.58.64 (talk).

I removed them, as they were not referenced in Star Trek. I also converted the referenced ones from a list to a sentence, indicating that there are likely more. Heck, for all we know, Ontario and Quebec may have become part of the United States by the time Canada was first referenced. :) -- Sulfur 23:30, 30 November 2007 (UTC)

Canadian actors in Star Trek Edit

While I wouldn't call this so-much as a "witch hunt", the truth of the matter is, is that some people can't help being a Canadian any more than they can't help being gay. :) But in all seriousness, isn't this (and whatever else we have spread throughout this site along these lines) basically an extension of this? I mean, we listed gay actors, but not straight actors, now we list Canadian actors, but why not American actors? Oh wait...that would be like almost everyone else. Hmm, well I guess I would hate to single anyone out.... --Alan 04:00, 1 July 2008 (UTC)

I agree, and now that Canada Day has passed and TrekMovie.com has the list they need, I think it can be removed. --From Andoria with Love 22:49, 2 July 2008 (UTC)
