Meaning of termEdit

Wasn't the Koon-ut-kal-if-fee in "Amok Time" the marriage ritual, rather than the "passion fight"? --Josiah Rowe 03:29, 26 Mar 2005 (EST)

Yes, it was. It means "marriage or challenge". Kal-if-fee (obviously "challenge") was what T'Pring shouted (or claimed) in "Amok Time" when she didn't want Spock as her mate. --AC84 05:35, 11 June 2005 (Pacific)

Merge with WeddingEdit

I propose that we merge this article with wedding. That main article is a bit skimpy and would be well filled with info from the (IMO) redundant pages on wedding customs of various species. It would also serve to highlight comparisons across various approaches to marriage. -- Connor Cabal 01:29, 30 October 2007 (UTC)

Oppose. This is a page on the Vulcan "marriage or challenge" ritual. While a brief note might be made at the wedding page, this needs its own page; it is nowhere near redundant. It would be like merging Data with Soong-type android or Soong-type android with android. Merging for the sake of adding more info to another page is not an appropriate reason for merging. If you want, you can add a brief note about the Koon-ut-kal-if-fee on the wedding page, but I don't see this going anywhere. The same goes for the other wedding articles you brought up for merge. --From Andoria with Love 12:38, 31 October 2007 (UTC)
Oppose. I agree with Shran. Not a good enough reason for merging.-- Örlogskapten. Qapl'a! 00:26, 1 November 2007 (UTC)
Oppose. I too agree with Shran, and in addition I don't think that the information here would fit in very well with the wedding article, which is basically a listing of occurrences of weddings, but does not describe any specifics of the ceremonies. For that we have a list of ceremonies at the end. If we merged Koon-ut-kal-if-fee, we should really merge all list list items, but that doesn't seem very appealing. So let's not merge the present article for consistency's sake.--Skon 13:37, 2 November 2007 (UTC)
Ah, now it dawns on me: It was exactly the plan to merge all wedding rituals. Well, no, you can't boost a new article by just taking over existing articles.--Skon 17:19, 7 November 2007 (UTC)
