The registry of the Excalibur is considered to be apocryphal. See the Constitution class article for the full explanation.
If the registry number is apocryphal, should it be listed in the section header and the main body of the article? -- Renegade54 18:10, 8 June 2006 (UTC)
- This is a difficult one, but the Star Trek Encyclopedia is our only real backup on the matter.
- The note is probably because the two mentions were never established in canon to be the same vessel, but Greg Jein theorized they were and Michael Okuda published his results, and there is a trend towards treating the Encyclopedia as semi-canonical here on MA. If we disregard the Encyclopedia, then we'd have to remove the registry from USS Excalibur and create a separate article at "NCC-1664" for the possibly different ship. -- Captain M.K.B. 18:49, 8 June 2006 (UTC)
- According to our canon policy, the Encyclopedia is considered a valid resource for information regarding subjects seen on-screen. So, if the Encyclopedia says the registry was NCC-1664, then I guess we should label it as such. However, we should note that the registry comes from the Encyclopedia. --From Andoria with Love 19:21, 8 June 2006 (UTC)
- Doesn't matter anymore, it's canon now, and we can all rest in peace. --Alan del Beccio 01:59, 11 February 2008 (UTC)
