It's possible that the rest of Los Angeles was destroyed in World War III. --Kitch 09:15, 30 Mar 2005 (EST)

Meters and feet Edit

The original text says it was a decent of 200 meters, the new background text says a decent of 256 feet. What is the correct unit?--Bp 05:14, 13 February 2007 (UTC)

200 meters is equal to 656.17 feet. 20:09, September 29, 2010 (UTC)
Janeway says 200 meters in the episode, which is about 656 feet. I wrote it that way in the background info because elevation information is traditionally given in feet here in the states, but also to give us silly non metric users some perspective as to what that equates to without having to do the math ourselves.-Foravalon 17:08, 13 February 2007 (UTC)
Whoops! I effed up my figures for the descent, it's 656ft not 256ft. You're right, it was pretty "indecent" of me, but i fixed it, it's even more impressive now. Whoo hoo!-Foravalon 17:21, 13 February 2007 (UTC)
I think it is better to stick with how it was stated on the show. Star Trek is metric. We should stick with the canon figure, and how it was stated. --OuroborosCobra talk 17:22, 13 February 2007 (UTC)
That "is" the canon figure, and the comparison is in the background info so there is no conflict of interest within the article. -Foravalon 17:36, 13 February 2007 (UTC)
