Battle Edit

Per the discussion at talk:conflicts, the "Battle of" name is a "made up" and is not-necessarily-canon or an accurate name. The Torros III article is not so large that it needs to have a separate article to descibe an unseen "battle" or "strike" that was never given a formal name. --Alan del Beccio 01:10, 2 February 2006 (UTC)

I agree that in this case there is no need for another article, although to an extent most all of our conflict names are "made up". For example, the Dominion War is an obvious example of a case where it had a name, but I don't remember anyone referencing the "Battle of the Omarion Nebula" or most of the other conflicts by name. I do like the end result with what's now referred to as the Federation-Dominion Cold War, despite that name having no canonical basis.
And now for one of my completely unrelated food-for-thought comments: If this was real life, wouldn't the name "Dominion War" be backwards? For example, the "Vietnam War" and "Iraq War" are based on the name of the place being invaded, so technically it would be the "Alpha Quadrant War" right? :P --Vedek Dukat Talk | Duty Roster 01:21, 2 February 2006 (UTC)

Can't argue with canon. William T. Riker: "In the Dominion War, Reman forces were used as assault troops in the most violent encounters." (Star Trek Nemesis) And I agree with the Omarion Nebula article as well, but since I'm sure this is a touchy subject for some, its easiest to move the articles that are obviously "weak" like the Destruction of the Odyssey and this page. As for Federation-Dominion Cold War, it is by far, more accurate terminology-wise, than several of those article pages are titled. --Alan del Beccio 01:32, 2 February 2006 (UTC)

I agree with the change. I also think, as Alan suggested on IRC, that other such battles with non-canon names be moved to articles about the places they were fought. For example, Battle of the Bassen Rift should be moved to Bassen Rift. Any thoughts on that? --From Andoria with Love 01:58, 2 February 2006 (UTC)
Wouldn't we then have confusion between the battle and the actual place? The Last Satanist 02:44, 2 February 2006 (UTC)
