Removed Russian flag text Edit

I removed the following:

The flag of Russia was red with a yellow hammer and sickle.

re: the source cited was (ENT: "First Flight"). I watched it and never saw this flag.

There is an insignia (which I don't believe is ever visible in episode) which has this flag. However this insignia is a real world object related to the Soviet/French flight of the Soyuz T-6 in 1982. On the insignia patch are the Soviet (not Russian) and French flags.--Hribar 05:35, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

Agreed. We'll probably be weeding things like that out for awhile, because Airtram added TONS of stuff from those patches, and tons of real world information completely irrelevant to MA and never mentioned in canon, so much that it was impossible for anyone to follow him around to fix stuff. --OuroborosCobra talk 05:53, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

I removed the sidebar from this article, because as far as I'm aware Russia's government structures were never discussed in canon. Sidebar government is meant to summarise info from the article, not act as a back door to adding real world info.– Cleanse ( talk | contribs ) 23:56, February 2, 2010 (UTC)

Especially since there is evidence that, at least in Trek, the Soviet Union is around in some form. --OuroborosCobra talk 00:00, February 3, 2010 (UTC)

RemovedEdit

Removed these notes as they were from the USSR period, and are covered in the USSR article. --Pseudohuman (talk) 20:12, November 21, 2013 (UTC)

Having traveled back in time to July 1947, Quark threatened to deal with the Russians if the United States refused to buy Ferengi technology from him. (DS9: "Little Green Men")
In the late 20th century, Russia founded the Russian Space Agency. This agency was notable for the first spacecraft, named Sputnik 1, launched into space which ignited the space race in 1957 between this country and the United States of America. Russia first cooperated with France in training French astronauts for missions on Soyuz and Mir. By the end of the 20th century, Russia and America were working together on missions to the International Space Station and on the space shuttles. (ENT: "Carbon Creek", "First Flight")
The argument can be made that Russia was only part of the USSR, not the whole thing, so references to Russia directly do still apply, like the Russia Space Agency. The ISS is post Berlin wall either way, so should be returned. - Archduk3 22:00, November 21, 2013 (UTC)
