Move to "lifespan"? Edit

I reckon this page should be renamed lifespan, as that's the correct spelling; it's all really one word. --Defiant 21:39, June 22, 2012 (UTC)

I concur. --RocketN9 21:41, June 22, 2012 (UTC)
Leaning oppose. Wikipedia has "life span" as well as Maximum life span. While not the be-all-end-all, it's a guide. That said, what matters is how scripts spell the term, and we should use that as a guide. 31dot 21:46, June 22, 2012 (UTC)
I suggest that, however it is written, that both versions could be in the first line of the article (life span or lifespan). 31dot 21:54, June 22, 2012 (UTC)

Well, as far as I can see, the scripts are split, with those of TNG: "Disaster" and Star Trek Nemesis stating "life span" but those of TNG: "Unification I" and DS9: "The Passenger" saying "lifespan". --Defiant 22:12, June 22, 2012 (UTC)

Dictionary.com has "life span", just for our information. 31dot 22:18, June 22, 2012 (UTC)

The plug-in US dictionary for firefox has it as "lifespan" (though that's obviously not definitive, either). I'm personally happy to go with either. :) --Defiant 22:39, June 22, 2012 (UTC)

Oppose, and we already have the other one as a redirect. Webster has it as two words, so I think it's safe to say that the American spelling has a space. - Archduk3 22:45, June 22, 2012 (UTC)
