I don't care what anybody says about it, I felt this had to be removed:

The graviton is also the only fubdamental force mediator not currently accounted for by the Standard Model, and is also regarded as the Holy Grail for String Theory, as it would prove the different dimensions, which is a major factor of String Theory.

Where, in Star Trek, was it ever referenced to be the "Holy Grail" of the [String Theory]? --From Andoria with Love 05:04, 2 Jan 2006 (UTC)

I agree -- we aren't required at MA to expound so much information on something never mentioned on Star Trek. It could be noted that gravitons are involved with String Theory -- without the colorful turn of phrase (Holy Grail) determining their (presupposed) importance to the irrelevant topic. -- Captain Mike K. Barteltalk

Is there any particular reason that the source from any one of the differnt other mentions of graviton (graviton pulse, graviton generator, etc) can't just be used for the citation here? Logan 5 04:12, 10 Jan 2006 (UTC)

In what sense were Human ships using gravitons by the end of the 20th century as mentioned in the article?-- Tiberius 07:03, 2 November 2006 (UTC)

From the article:
Gravitons were apparently harnessed in the 20th Century since the Vulcan ship in ENT: "Carbon Creek", the SS Botany Bay in TOS: "Space Seed", and the 20th Century cryogenic satellite ship in TNG: "Neutral Zone" clearly show artificial gravity usage.
The way this article is written is somewhat messed up though, especially its method for citation. I'll try my hand at re-writing it today. --OuroborosCobra talk 13:28, 2 November 2006 (UTC)
