- No, This is a page about the type of shuttlepods used in 2151, not a special shuttlepod. <unsigned>
- But, even if this article is about a particular type of shuttlepod, it was used during other years, not just in 2151. The same type of shuttlepod was even seen in "These Are the Voyages...", in one of the scenes that were set in 2161. Therefore, I think the name of this article should be changed to something else, perhaps Shuttlepod (ENT) or Shuttlepod (22nd Century).
- If we list all the appearances and references, it should make it easier to split the pages into Shuttlepod (NX class), Shuttlepod 1, and Shuttlepod 2. Appearances of a shuttlepod that is unidentified but of the same class (as well as unidentified references, such as "a shuttlepod") could be listed on the (NX class) shuttlepod page, with identifiable appearances listed on their respective pages.
Shuttlepod (2151) page Edit
I think the page at Shuttlepod (2151) should be moved, because the same type of shuttlepod was used during other years, not just in 2151. However, I don't know whether it should be moved to Shuttlepod (ENT) or Shuttlepod (22nd Century). Any suggestions? --Defiant | Talk 11:44, 1 Sep 2005 (UTC)
- I would avoid the meta-Trek "ENT" and probably call it Shuttlepod (NX-01) or Shuttlepod (NX class). -- Cid Highwind 12:05, 1 Sep 2005 (UTC)
- But it was used by starfleet command too, or not? Maybe "Shuttlepod (2150s)" ? --Memory 21:47, 10 Sep 2005 (UTC)
Peer review Edit
Just to note, the Mustang was a U.S. WW 2 Aircraft, and since the Shutllepod was returning to San Fransisco in the alt. timeline, and the NAZI map showed S.F. as part of American control still, it is safe to asume that these Mustangs were of US origin. <unsigned>
Reverted edit Edit
An archivist removed episode references to the information about the shuttlepod weapons, i reverted the edit. i feel its more useful to know which episodes the shuttles used weaponry -- i don't support rendering the passage uncited. -- Captain Mike K. Barteltalk
Shuttlepod Class Edit
Since the shuttlepod seen in "Home" has the registration "NC-05", couldn't we assume that the twenty-second century shuttlepods are called "NC-class" vessels? If so, should this page be renamed? Snugglebitch 16:44, 19 August 2006 (UTC)
- No. "NX" is the only class we have direct evidence is named this way. "NC" could stand for something else. --OuroborosCobra talk 01:19, 20 August 2006 (UTC)
- I don't think so. Usually when we name something "X-type", we name it after the first instance. For example, Negh'Var warship and Centaur type. "NC" was not seen on a Shuttlepod until 3/4 into the series. I also do not find the current name at all vague. They were always referred to as "shuttlepods", and they were in the 22nd century. The worst that can happen is that someone looks up Shuttlepod, which has an obvious link to this article. --OuroborosCobra talk 13:49, 22 November 2006 (UTC)
- In the mid-2150s of the mirror universe, shuttlepods were also stored in launch bays aboard NX class starships and were used by members of the Terran Empire. A single shuttlepod in this universe was capable of withstanding the pressure of a Human on its roof. (ENT: "In a Mirror, Darkly, Part II")
- It is unclear how much weight the shuttlepods of our universe were able to support, as no indication was ever given in any episode.
Clearly this is understatement carrying overstatement on its shoulders. If a shuttlepod can travel in the vacuum of space under g-force conditions, take phaser blasts and fall down melting comets, collide with starships and somehow manage to survive said impacts, then certainly it can "withstand the pressure" of someone sitting on its roof. My family car can "withstand the pressure" of someone sitting on its roof, and it can't even leave the ground. --Alan del Beccio 02:38, 10 February 2008 (UTC)
- A tad late for this, but I had always felt bothered by hat comment, feeling...well, what you said, Alan (is it ok, if I call you Alan?). Certainly, one would hope that it could withstand someone standing on it, after all, it's constructed somehow, right? Repaired, maintained, etc... That's all in addition to the sort of things you said. --Terran Officer 09:03, 22 June 2008 (UTC)
- I'm not the least calling for the return of the comment, especially with the points of phaser blasts and stuff, but simply flying through the vacuum of space/g-forces doesn't mean it has to be that strong. Remember how weak the Lunar Module in the Apollo program was. --OuroborosCobra talk 14:08, 22 June 2008 (UTC)
