I'm not sure about this or not, but given the character's timeframe should we assume that this Captain is the same "G. Roddenberry" as the UESPA officer listed on the Enterprise NX-01 dedication plaque? We did a similar thing with W.M. Jefferies and "Captain Jefferies."--Tim Thomason 07:46, 2 March 2006 (UTC)

Nevermind, I decided to go for it. Don't know why I hesitated though. If anyone objects or whatever go ahead and speak now or forever hold your peace.--Tim Thomason 08:20, 2 March 2006 (UTC)

Recent page moveEdit

I disagree with the recent move from G. Roddenberry to Gene Roddenberry (Captain). I think this title is a natural disambiguation from the other Roddenberry pages, and we shouldn't be "assuming" (I know we already are assuming with the combination of possibly 2 obscure okudagrams) names. There are countless references on the NX-01 dedication plaque, that if we were to assume they shared the name with the source (some of them might be tricky on that subject though) then they would provide countless hard to decipher disambigs like "James Van Over (Federation Starfleet)" and "James Van Over (Earth Starfleet)." I think the less (parenthetical disambigging) the better.--Tim Thomason 17:42, 6 March 2006 (UTC)

Well, this would seem to be the same UESPA captain Gene Roddenberry who was mentioned as commanding VK Velikan. It seems uninformative to delete his first name from his article title, when in fact he was assigned a first name in the appearance on the "Up the Long Ladder" graphic.
Seeing as they were both mentioned about nine years apart, and both seem to be Earth space officers, i'd consider them the same person (just to avoid creating two articles for "G. Roddenberry (UESPA)" and "Gene Roddenberry (Captain)") -- Captain M.K. Barteltalk 17:45, 6 March 2006 (UTC)
Sorry.--Tim Thomason 17:48, 6 March 2006 (UTC)
