Moved from Pages for deletion Edit

Remote controlled spaceship 
A relatively recent article which already had to be moved, rephrased, and even had a {{pna-cite}} on it for a while. Still, it's just a dictionary definition mostly and we're not a dictionary. I'm not sure if there's potential for more, if the article should have this title etc., so I'm putting it up for deletion. -- Cid Highwind 22:08, 13 September 2006 (UTC)
  • Delete/Merge. The model in question (seen here) is the same that Captain Archer used as a child. Archer's childhood use, and the model itself, is covered in the model article. The information from this article, mainly that the Tucker clone also used the model, should be merged there. --OuroborosCobra talk 22:18, 13 September 2006 (UTC)
  • Keep, we do have the image in our database, and I added to the page. I also rewrote the page just to give the jist of its two appearances. I'm sure it could be expanded further because Archer had several flashbacks to his youth while playing it, where he was likening the advise his father was giving him on flying it to captaining a starship in "Broke Bow." Also, yes, it is referenced in model, but then again, we also have a sister article to the one in question: Remote controlled car. Perhaps we should merge the two remote controlled articles rather than the spaceship article witht he model article. --Alan del Beccio 22:48, 13 September 2006 (UTC)
  • Keep - though "remote controlled car" should probably be moved somewhere, cause that sure don't look like any car I've ever seen... - AJ Halliwell 05:14, 16 September 2006 (UTC)

Rename(?) Edit

Given the references to this in the script for "Broken Bow" (see here: [1]), I reckon this would be more accurately named as a "starship" than a "spaceship". I also prefer if the phrase "remote controlled" was hyphenated, so I'm suggesting the page be renamed "Remote-controlled starship model". --Defiant (talk) 05:27, September 19, 2012 (UTC)

Well, the thing was called "JONATHAN ARCHER'S MODEL SPACESHIP" in Christie's 2006 40 Years of Star Trek: The Collection,as Lot #167 , as far as I know, the only time the thing was called by name (by no other than Mike Okuda), so I guess "spaceship" stands...--Sennim (talk) 02:10, September 29, 2012 (UTC)
See also the discussion for Talk:Remote controlled toy for bits about the "hyphen". -- sulfur (talk) 11:22, September 29, 2012 (UTC)
