Keating Edit

"Star Trek: Enterprise regular Dominic Keating had auditioned for the part of Uncle Frank"

Much as I like Keating (Reed is probably my favorite ENT character), I'm glad that didn't happen - no amount of acting talent or future globalization can get me to believe a stiff-assed Brit as an Iowa farmer.--Ten-pint 22:48, December 7, 2009 (UTC)

Title Edit

Should this be titled simply "Frank (uncle)"? I don't think there are any other Uncle Franks that could be confused with this character(which would warrant the "Kirk's" in the title).--31dot 17:52, September 26, 2011 (UTC)

If there is no other comment, I will likely move this in a day or two.--31dot 01:15, October 5, 2011 (UTC)

I'm not going to oppose any move, but I'm not sure we should remove the part about who's uncle this is. That said, using just Kirk isn't helping much, since James T. Kirk is also an uncle. - Archduk3 (on an unsecure connection) 23:13, October 5, 2011 (UTC)

I'd be open to other suggestions to improve the disambig. It just seem odd the way it is currently.--31dot 01:38, October 6, 2011 (UTC)

Frank (Kirk family) maybe? This removes the uncle part though. The same could be done to Frank (cousin) by moving that to Frank (Barclay family). It's not a perfect solution, but I think those are better disambiguations than just uncle and cousin. - Archduk3 09:08, October 6, 2011 (UTC)
In the case of this Frank, we have a lot of wiggle room because it is a production POV article about an unused character. We could use production POV terms in its title, if all other suggestions are considered non-optimal - for example Frank (Star Trek) or Frank (unused Star Trek character). On the other hand, the exact disambiguation phrase isn't that important exactly because it doesn't need to be a good canon description, anyway - this article will only be linked to from bg notes and other production POV articles. -- Cid Highwind 09:15, October 6, 2011 (UTC)

I actually think all those suggestions are pretty good. :) With Cid's comments I wonder if the disambig here should indicate somehow that it is a production POV article- and as such I would endorse "Star Trek"; though the family ideas aren't bad, either.--31dot 11:03, October 6, 2011 (UTC)

I'd also support the title "Star Trek" being used in the namespace. --Defiant 11:12, October 6, 2011 (UTC)
I'm not sure we should use a movie title disambiguation in the title if we don't have to, but I'm still not going to oppose any move on those grounds alone. That said, the link here should be below the other in-universe link on the disambiguation page. - Archduk3 12:26, October 6, 2011 (UTC)
