Temporary page?Edit

What's with USS Columbia/temp? Is that page necessary for something or can it be deleted? -- Cid Highwind 12:00, 14 Jun 2004 (CEST)

I'm making a case to get the data changed to a more accurate revision, but i'm holding off rewriting the page until a consensus is reached at Talk:Federation starships because i don't want to start an edit war. --Captain Mike K. Bartel 15:06, 14 Jun 2004 (CEST)

Hermes vs Cygnus Edit

If you read the Tech Manual carefully, you'll actually find that Columbia is a Cygnus-class scout. Of course, this possibly introduces the complicated system of subclasses to Memory Alpha, and perhaps we don't want to do that. -- Harry 16:18, 27 Sep 2004 (CEST)

We already had a lengthy discussion months ago... see Talk:Federation starships#USS Cygnus? -- Kobi 19:58, 27 Sep 2004 (CEST)

Thanks. I was gone for a while, I might be bringing up more dead cows in the following weeks ;) -- Harry 22:39, 27 Sep 2004 (CEST)

Note on Star Fleet Technical Manual sourcing? Edit

Should there be a note on this page explaining that the details (Hermes class, etc.) of this entry come from the Franz Joseph Technical Manual, whose canonicity has been debated? (I'd do it myself, but I don't actually have a copy of the Technical Manual at hand.)

I understand that the existence of this ship and its rendezvous with the USS Revere are taken from TMP, I'm just wondering if we should note the source of the other details. --Josiah Rowe 18:40, 20 Feb 2005 (GMT)


What is the permitted resource for citing this as a Hermes-class vessel? And registration? If none other than the Tech Manual - not a permitted resource itself on MA - these designtions should be removed. Aholland 11:36, 6 May 2006 (UTC)

The registration number was mentioned in the dialogue in Star Trek: The Motion Picture. The class designation was based on the suggestion of the site's founders that we recognize the source of the vessels, Star Fleet Technical Manual, as valid. -- Captain M.K.B. 12:51, 6 May 2006 (UTC)

I'm guessing, then, that the ship name and registry were in the background "operations" talk in the film. Did that survive into the Director's Edition? I know they fiddled with some background stuff a bit. And can you point me to where the canon-exception for the class documented is on the site? Given its source, it would have to be some kind of one-off exception, I believe. Thanks! Aholland 13:42, 6 May 2006 (UTC)

Assuming the same answer as with the USS Revere, is there an exception to the canon policy hidden away somewhere on the site that associates the Columbia with the Hermes-class itself? Otherwise it is nothing more than speculation and should - of course - be moved to background as to its class. Aholland 14:32, 7 May 2006 (UTC)
