Is this spelled right, or should it be "tracker", rather than "traker"? -- Renegade54 15:15, 9 September 2006 (UTC)

"traker" is correct. -- Captain M.K.B. 18:39, 9 September 2006 (UTC)
kk, thanks Mike! :) -- Renegade54 03:40, 10 September 2006 (UTC)

Shouldn't this be at Traker, ala "Silicon deposits" or "Dilithium deposits"? - AJ Halliwell 05:34, 10 September 2006 (UTC)

I don't see how you could associate this article with silicon, and traker deposits are associated with dilithium deposits, but are entirely seperate, hence their own article.Capt Christopher Donovan 06:29, 10 September 2006 (UTC)
He means that all three are available in "deposits" but don't necessarily need to have "deposits" be part of the name. -- Captain M.K.B. 06:50, 10 September 2006 (UTC)
So far as I know, there is no "material" named "Traker". It's usage in context seems to be descriptive of a geological formation of some sort, not a mineral per se. The proper name for this article should be "Traker deposits".Capt Christopher Donovan 01:08, 20 September 2006 (UTC)

Title Edit

How do you edit the title? I can't put "deposit" back in because the edit page won't bring up the title line for editing...Capt Christopher Donovan 01:13, 20 September 2006 (UTC)

You use the "move" tab, next to "edit this page" and "history", but I wouldn't do that yet. If you do it right after it was moved here, it is going to look like an edit war. Discuss it more here. I will try to find the specific episode quote in question, that often helps settle things... --OuroborosCobra talk 02:08, 20 September 2006 (UTC)

Quote Edit

For what it is worth, here is the quote from the script:

WESLEY: "Didn't you tell me that U.V. absorption readings like these are indicative of traker deposits?"
DAVIES: "And where there's traker there's generally dilithium? Yeah, I did."

As someone studying sciences such as chemistry, this actually points to traker being a material. Geological formations do not have a specific U.V. absorption, chemical compounds do. The dilithium can't be used to explain that, since if they are only "generally" found with traker deposits, they are not always. If it was responsible for the U.V. absorption, then it would not be indicative of traker deposits, but of dilithium. Wesley says it is of traker deposits. --OuroborosCobra talk 02:47, 20 September 2006 (UTC)
