Over analysisEdit

I removed:

Background information
In "Carpenter Street," several cars, including the police cruisers at the end, have license plates on the front bumper. In Michigan, cars do not have front license plates, only rear plates. The skyline shown in the episode also does not reflect Detroit's actual skyline in 2004, instead resembling that of Los Angeles.
Several cars can also be seen with white license plates similar to those used in California in 2004. The State of Michigan did not adopt white plates until 2007.
Archer and T'Pol steal a Dodge Ram pickup, similar to the vehicle stolen by Tuvok and Tom Paris in "Future's End" [VOY]

...for several reasons. First two paragraphs are nothing but production based nits. Obviously some people didn't do their homework as well as they could of. Regardless, it is still Detroit. The white plate is totally inaccurate, since the police cruisers and the Ram were all seen with a lighter blue plate with off-whitish numbering, still similar with Michigan's blue plates, but obviously California plates. Finally, the link between Ram's can be found on that page, that fact has nothing to do with Detroit itself. --Alan 09:52, 31 July 2007 (UTC)

Erika Hernandez Edit

Where in "Home" was it mentioned that Captain Hernandez was born in Detroit? I've just watched the episode and I can't find the mention anywhere. The preceding unsigned comment was added by 76.216.105.25 (talk).

Good question, it seems to have been added by User:Jaz nearly 4 years ago. I, too, found no reference to it either. --Alan 07:51, 19 April 2009 (UTC)

Filmed in LA Edit

The bginfo says scenes of Detroit were filmed in LA – with no references (the same thing occurs on the "Carpenter Street" article). Is it left in with no refs b/c it's "obvious"? (Most US TV scenes, indoor or otherwise, are not filmed on location but in LA.) I didn't know that sort of thing was ok, given MA's policies. Or is it a case of MA:Use common sense?

No, those statements should have citations. On quite a few ocassions, what's "obvious" has been shown dead wrong by secondary sources. –Cleanse ( talk | contribs ) 23:05, February 7, 2011 (UTC)
