There is something wrong here. The cargo pod was used by Picard, Crusher, and Worf to get to Celtris III. I don't remember how Crusher and Worf escaped, but Picard didn't. He could not have used the cargo ship to escape as he was captured by the Cardassians, and was returned by them directly to the Enterprise at the end of the episode arc. --OuroborosCobra 21:10, 31 May 2006 (UTC)

No need to bring up the issue here or to mark the article as inaccurate. Just remove Picard's name and explain why in the edit summary. If anyone thought you were wrong, they could revert it. Now in the cases of extreme inaccuracies or those you're not sure what to do, then yes, by all means, bring it up in the talk page first. --From Andoria with Love 02:43, 1 June 2006 (UTC)

RedirectEdit

The generic term cargo ship redirects to freighter, assuming both starship types are the same. Shouldn't Ferengi cargo ship then also redirect to Ferengi freighter, as a cargo ship=freighter? Kennelly 17:48, 3 January 2007 (UTC)

That is assuming they are of the same class. I think this page was created to make that distinction, being that two (or more) different names were used. --Alan del Beccio 22:43, 11 April 2007 (UTC)

It just seems inconsistent to me, that we assume a Ferengi cargo ship is different from a Ferengi freighter, but at the same time in general equate cargo ship=freighter. Kennelly 21:13, 14 April 2007 (UTC)

Merged. --Alan 16:34, 4 June 2007 (UTC)
Redux: I think we equated that because the terminology is so similar, in terms of describing it in the most general terms, because one species' cargo ship might be another's freighter. Seeing as these are both Ferengi ship designs, the change in nomenclature could somehow denote a difference in the class, ownership, etc. --Alan 00:11, 1 March 2008 (UTC)
