Wrong place?Edit

The article's info is great, but it doesn't belong here. Almost all of it should be included in the Pathfinder Project page or in the "Pathfinder" episode page (which is pretty full already). -- Mjwilco 02:37, 5 Sep 2004 (CEST)

I agree. Most of this article is episode summary, and should be moved to the episode article. Relevant information should be moved (and rephrased) to Pathfinder Project also. In this article, it would suffice to say "It was home to the Pathfinder Project in 2374 through 2376." -- Redge | Talk 11:34, 5 Sep 2004 (CEST)
I've compared this page to the Pathfinder article and episode pages and I can't find any info here that wasn't already mentioned. So, scrap it, and leave one sentence? -- Mjwilco 16:15, 5 Sep 2004 (CEST)

LocationEdit

I don't know about the building being in san francisco. it looks alot like the Bank of China in Hong Kong

There has been no reference in the series about the location of this building. Personally I think it resembles the John Hancock building in Chicago. While it has been established that Barclay lived in San Francisco, his post could be located elsewhere. I don't believe it's that unreasonable for a person to live in one city (San Francisco) and work in another (Chicago). -- MSPBoi98 01:13, 3 Sept 2006 (CST)

It does look like photos of the bank building. However, how do we know with the certainty stated in the article? Is there an original source for this claim? Does the original photo exist? Or is it a guess based upon superficial similarity?
In the last episode of Voyager (VOY: "Endgame") there is an overhead view, which appears to be centered around Clay and Front streets, in San Francisco. There are details on some of the buildings, the park and a skywalk, which are distinctive, although other details are different from the present day. The building, itself, is at the location of One Maritime Plaza, formerly called the Alcoa Building, which is similar in being a glass tower with criss-crossed beams, but is not the same. You can also see part of the Embarcadero Center. I happen to work in that neighborhood. (The movie Time After Time, written and directed by Nicholas Meyer and starring Malcolm McDowell as H.G. Wells chasing David Warner as Jack the Ripper around the same area, which I coincidently saw on the same day I saw the episode.) --Nike 13:05, 7 June 2007 (UTC)
San Francisco Financial

San Francisco's Financial District in 2377

I uploaded the view I mentioned above. It is definitely San Francisco. I agree that the building, itself, however, is a modified picture of the Bank of Hong Kong tower, so not only was it "re-purposed", but also transported across the Pacific Ocean. --Nike 06:09, 8 July 2007 (UTC)
