MergeEdit

There doesn't seem to be enough evidence to point to the conclusion that the map references were about a star called Delta Vega and not the planet called Delta Vega. Better to have a single article me thinks. --Pseudohuman (talk) 14:20, July 19, 2014 (UTC)

We have a sector named Delta Vega. Canonically, the majority of known sectors are named after a people (the Cardassian sector, the Tholian sector) or after a star (the Sol sector, the Archanis sector). Yes, the maps could be possibly referring to a planet. Now, the problem for me with the maps is their inconsistency. I had to face this issue when it came to deciding what to do with the map from Star Trek VI. We had a list of locations. I had to answer the question, is this a star? is this a planet? When I couldn't answer this question, when there wasn't enough information, I called the location an astronomical object. In the case of Delta Vega, we have evidence that there is a star named Delta Vega in the name of the sector. So, I am opposed to the merger.Throwback (talk) 16:31, July 19, 2014 (UTC)

And then we have the Bajor sector, Takara sector, Rakhar sector all seemingly named after planets. And the one that clearly is: Genesis sector. I would say it is completely wrong to interpret that Delta Vega in the maps and in the sector name refers to a star. When we have a canonically established planet with that name. --Pseudohuman (talk) 17:14, July 19, 2014 (UTC)

Do we know that for sure that these four examples are named after planets? They could have been named after stars. We have had systems that share the same name as the planet, for example, Qo'noS is in the Qo'noS system. And, the Qo'noS system is in the Qo'nos sector. And, looking at the images available about the Mutara Nebula, there was no sun near Regula. Yet, we have a star after the detonation of the Genesis device. Could the Genesis device created both a planet and a star? It's an open-ended question.Throwback (talk) 19:08, July 22, 2014 (UTC)
