This page isn't needed if the homeworld is known as Kaelon II. And I think the name of the star as Kaelon is speculation. - IP User

Well, even if the star is removed from the list (actually since it was a real object seen on an episode, so an alternate name should be found "Kaelon sun" or something -- it was a major part of the episode.
Even if the star isn't the same name as the system, i think this page is still needed -- to list all the articles that will end up beginning with the word Kaelon. -- Captain Mike K. Barteltalk 14:36, 29 Sep 2005 (UTC)
I'm not sure about the usefulness of this (and other, similar pages), either. In the beginning, a disambiguation page was created when there were two or more articles that could be addressed using the same term. The disambiguation page was created at that term, to have a destination for every link that wrongly links to it instead of the proper article title. A good example of this is USS Enterprise, which links to all nine articles about ships called USS Enterprise.
Now, a disambiguation page is often used to list articles that share a part of their name - most of those article would never be addressed by just that part, though, so the usefulness of the disambiguation is dubious at best. For example, Kaelon could refer to the species or the star (whose article might not ever be created), but surely not to Kaelon warship. An even worse example would be Alpha, a so-called disambiguation page listing all occurences of "Alpha" in an article title. But it doesn't stop there - often, these disambiguation pages aren't even created with the title they are designed to disambiguate. Instead they have a qualifier "(disambiguation)" added to them, making them inherently useless to find accidentally misleading links somewhere. I think this practice has to be rethought. -- Cid Highwind 10:15, 30 Sep 2005 (UTC)
