- It is possible that the base element is actually kironium, not dikironium. The prefix di- implies two, and thus implies that dikironium is a molecule consisting of two kironium atoms. Also, because dikironium, until discovered by the Enterprise crew, existed only in the laboratory, it could be speculated that kironium is an inert element, such as helium or xenon, because molecules that include atoms of inert elements also exist only in the laboratory.
Having just watched "Obsession" once more, I believe that the term is "DIKORONIUM" and not "DIKIRONIUM". Does anyone else share the same belief? 126.96.36.199 05:00, July 9, 2011 (UTC) d801live
