Battle tactics and maneuvers Edit

I have no idea if there is where I am to post this, but it seems just as good a place as any. So far in my data collection I've noticed a few mentioned battle tactics, including:

...then of course we have all the "Evasive maneuvers! Pattern Delta!", for example, type tactics. Is there some way we can employ all of these into one topic rather than to let them all linger on their own (once articles are established, that is)? I know the "Pattern Delta" or "Pattern Omega" commands are pretty generic, but Sisko actually explains what a "Pattern Delta" (or something of the like) is in DS9: "Shattered Mirror". How might I go about presenting this in an article without simply making a list...or is that about the only option I have (making a list, that is)?? Thanks. --Gvsualan 06:26, 28 Dec 2004 (CET)

Isn't "Pattern Delta" an evasive maneuver? The way I see it, evasive maneuvers covers terms like PD, but "pattern delta" is a combination of moves which is probably part of the Starfleet Academy curriculum, and its just a shorter way of saying the moves it encompases. Maybe you should start a page called Evasive Maneuvers? --Defiant

Good point. --Gvsualan 22:14, 30 Dec 2004 (CET)

Corbomite maneuverEdit

is there any particular reason Corbomite maneuver was removed? Seems to me Kirk used the tactic twice, successfully. --Alan del Beccio 03:02, 3 March 2006 (UTC)

It's definitely a Tactic, and it belongs here. It was only called a "maneuver" in the episode title though, and I think it should be referred to as the "Corbomite bluff" in this listing. --Aurelius Kirk 03:09, 3 March 2006 (UTC)

And when was it called that? --Alan 13:23, 24 February 2009 (UTC)
