Removed info Edit

I removed;

Another shortcut to the Gamma Quadrant was later discovered in the Bajoran wormhole which led to the Idran system. It is not known how close that wormhole's terminus is to the Gamma Quadrant terminus of the Barzan wormhole. (DS9: "Emissary")

because if its unknown, then why state it? -Angry Future Romulan 22:13, January 7, 2011 (UTC)

possible name origin Edit

I don't know how to confirm this, but this EAS article might hint at the origin of the name: The Denkeri were a race from a story by Rick Sternbach. He actually made a painting of their homeworld, which made it on-screen in several episode, including "The Price" itself. -- Capricorn 17:28, December 4, 2011 (UTC)

I spoke to Rick about this, the Denkiri arm was indeed named after the species and planets he came up with. Both Denkir II and Denkir IV are seen in those space paintings. The "evolution of intelligent life on the planet Denkir IV" was additionally seen in this graphic. Rick recently sold a negative of the graphic on eBay. --Jörg 17:38, December 4, 2011 (UTC)

The evolution of intelligent life on the planet Denkir IV.

Wow, thanks for the excellent reply! I hope you don't mind me taking the opportunity to say that I just LOVE your research. I'm thrilled when any kind of new info surfaces, but the kind of projects you do exite me the most, and the space art writeup is no exception :-D -- Capricorn 18:11, December 4, 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for the kind words! :-) Believe me, writing those articles and getting feedback from the people that actually worked on the show is just as exciting! --Jörg 18:14, December 4, 2011 (UTC)

Oh I can imagine! I just wish I had your skill, I'm always obsessing about what some barely legible blob of text might actually say, but where you manage to decipher and identify it, I don't usually get very far. I've been curious what that evolutionary tree was about for years :-D -- Capricorn 18:39, December 4, 2011 (UTC)
