Electronic/ElectronicsEdit

Again, i'm delving into real-life science and wondering where i should go. Should Electronic redirect to Electron (as it means "having to do with an electron" when broken down), should it redirect to electricity (the effect of electron energy) or should we instead make it related to electronics? -- Captain Mike K.

I've redirected Electronics to Wikipedia. Electronic usually refers to solid-state devices, instead of the vaccuum tube style devices made by Spock in (TOS: "The City on the Edge of Forever") and by Data in {TNG: "Time's Arrow"). I don't think we've seen any characters mess with post-World War 2-style electronics at the chip-level, save for Scotty with a Macintosh and Sulu with a Huey 204, and even then, they didn't disassemble them to components. I'm all for an electronics page if we see characters dabbling in silicon. --vorik111 00:02, 6 September 2007 (UTC)
