Deletion & RedirectEdit

I propose this page be deleted and the term "Shield grid" be redirected to "Shield" since it appears they are used to mean the same thing (and not simply in reference to planetary shields). --| TrekFan Open a channel 03:09, January 8, 2014 (UTC)

A merge is not a deletion, see MA:MERGE. - Archduk3 07:32, January 8, 2014 (UTC)

Regardless, I don't think a separate page for shield grid is warranted. --| TrekFan Open a channel 07:05, January 9, 2014 (UTC)

I disagree with having a merge or deletion. There are several pages linked in the shield article that lead off to different types of shields. Many are expanded and others are currently just stubs. But this along with the others could be expanded. Otherwise it would mean merging each one like this into the shield article. --BorgKnight (talk) 07:51, January 9, 2014 (UTC)
Ignore what I said there. If there is no canon example of the Shield grid in reference to a planetary shield, which I can't seem to find any, then it should be merged. --BorgKnight (talk) 08:01, January 9, 2014 (UTC)

There is reference to shield grid as a planetary shield in VOY: "Nightingale" but there is also reference to shield grid being the shield system itself in TNG: "The Nth Degree". My point is, it isn't solely to do with planetary shielding as the stub makes out. It is more a general term for shield technology itself and as such I don't see why it should be a separate article. --| TrekFan Open a channel 20:11, January 9, 2014 (UTC)

Following up on this, would an admin be able to perform the merge? --| TrekFan Open a channel 18:01, March 4, 2014 (UTC)

Bump. --| TrekFan Open a channel 14:01, April 4, 2014 (UTC)
