Should we include a list of the individual shortstories somewhere/somehow? Or, for that matter, give them their own pages? Also, although it wouldn't fit into the table, I have another issue cover I was wondering where could be put. (March '53) Such 'original stories' as "The Cage" by E.W. Roddenberry, author of "Questor." The Corbomite Maneuver, Journey to Babel, Metamorphosis and Where No Man Has Gone Before! - AJ Halliwell 15:25, 5 August 2006 (UTC)

  • Couldn't you just list the cover image with the ones already posted here? Additionally, perhaps we could create individual pages for (a la Star Trek: Communicator, in-universe style, using date vs. issue #):
  • Then list each novella with its associated issue, with unspecified novellas/sketches on the main page. --Alan del Beccio 15:57, 5 August 2006 (UTC)
    • I'd be in favor of not having each story on a separate page, anyway; that's just inconvenient. --68.44.253.17 19:54, 7 February 2008 (UTC)

I think the right way to go is having individual entries for short stories, but not for magazine issues. The stories are individual works of literature which hold up on their own. works of fiction have always had their own entries, regardless of length. (Individual chapters of say Captain Proton don't have individual pages, but they are parts of a larger story). Making pages for individual issues on the other hand, would be like making individual pages for a certain day's edition of ever newspaper ever seen on screen(providing of course a date can be desciphered). Hence I would argue for having a section on each issue on the main page, and linking the individual stories from there. Since the main page now has a list of linked stories and a cover galery, both would simply have to be combined, which imo would make the info beter structured anyway and I thus hope to do regardless of what the outcome of this discussion is -- Capricorn 02:56, 3 November 2008 (UTC)
