Though this page currently states that "the spacecraft operating & management system was a part of the NX-class computer", do we really know that this term wasn't how the whole computer system was known?! It would seem to avoid this page staying a stub, and a similar precedent would seem to be Orbital Drydock Facility which, even though that name has only ever been shown on the side of an inspection pod, we've used for an entire article. --Defiant (talk) 21:14, July 26, 2012 (UTC)

If the question is if this is the 22nd century version of LCARS, I would at least want to see this label on more than one screen. - Archduk3 21:56, July 26, 2012 (UTC)

Well, I've noticed it's additionally featured on the main status display, commonly shown on the large screen at the rear of the situation room (there's a close-up of that screen in one of the Star Trek: Communicator issues). --Defiant (talk) 22:30, July 26, 2012 (UTC)

A bit of clarification from the guy who researched and made it; I kind of suspect that it's how the operating system was known too, but I didn't want to make assumptions in the article (Hence the awkward wording too). For one, that position in the interface tends to be feature other kinds of labels, including things like "historical database" or "something scan". Labels for what's on the screen basically. On the other hand, it can be seen on monitors frequently, or at least it can in season 4 (when I started noticing it). I just saw little point in uploading more then one screenshot. -- Capricorn (talk) 23:55, July 26, 2012 (UTC)
I've seen other labels used as well, such as Systems Monitor, so I think we need to do some due diligence on this and make sure we know how and where it was used before making any assumptions about what it means. We could also try to contact someone and see if we can't get some production info on this. - Archduk3

I've tried looking through the first 2 episodes, "Broken Bow" and "Fight or Flight", but ain't seen any references to it yet. Your latter suggestion seems to be a really good one. Michael Okuda would be the ideal person to contact if at all possible, IMO. --Defiant (talk) 00:18, July 27, 2012 (UTC)

I did notice it on the situation room monitor in "In a Mirror, Darkly", so it clearly exists in the mirror universe too. --Defiant (talk) 08:54, August 1, 2012 (UTC)

Sorry to dredge up an old conversation, but I think it's necessary in this case. Did anybody happen to find out any production info on this subject? --| TrekFan Open a channel 13:00, January 16, 2014 (UTC)
