DeletionEdit

Deletion rationale

According to the talk page, has not been mentioned as such in the only episode that links to it (that link should then be removed). Was created because a disambiguation link at "Scientific Method" exists, which should also be removed if disambiguation is not necessary in the first place. -- Cid Highwind 17:31, 24 September 2007 (UTC)

Home SoilEdit

There's a reference in the "Home Soil" episode's references list, but I don't recall any mention of the actual "scientific method" in the episode. Indeed, the only mentions of the word "method" in the episode were as follows:

"Data — any analysis of those bolts of light they emit?"
"That seems to be their method of reprogramming, Captain. Each bolt of light consists of negatively and positively charged ions. A series of program instructions as it were."
- Picard and Data, discussing the light bolts.


"Have we disabled the Medical Lab computer console?"
"Aye, sir, as soon as Data determined the microbrain's method of operation."
- Picard and Riker

As such... should we even have a page about the scientific method? -- Sulfur 15:17, 24 September 2007 (UTC)

I created it because somebody else added a note at the top of the episode page ("Scientific Method") that linked to it. Is that necessary? If not, then neither is this article, really. I have no objection to it being deleted. - TerranRich 16:37, 24 September 2007 (UTC)

Turns out that I missed a reference at the ~18minute mark where Dr. Crusher stated "Let's use the basic scientific method." Heh. Whoops. My bad. Thanks Tim. -- Sulfur 23:16, 24 September 2007 (UTC)
