How necessary? Edit

I hate to ask this, but is this article really necessary? We don't have entries for the Romulan ships from the Earth-Romulan war, or the Tzenkethi ships from that war. The existence of this ship is only implied, and not that strongly it seems to me. Logan 5 03:52, 22 Nov 2005 (UTC)

  • Well considering that there were no Earth-Romulan war or Federation-Tzenkthi war ships singled out in this manner, I say yes. This ship was specifically referenced as being "the other ship" involved in the Battle of Maxia, and as well the vessel commanded by Bok's son, both factors are far more than "only implied" and are clearly defined in the article. In fact, three pages of the five pages linked to it are using the link in reference to a specific vessel...this vessel. Besides, M/A is littered with articles of this calibur based on implied references or in this case, direct references -- sure it wasn't seen or named -- but the Stargazer certainly didn't get toasted, nor was the Picard Maneuver conceived during an attack by empty space. --Alan del Beccio 05:38, 22 Nov 2005 (UTC)
But all the information you have, beyond its existence, is speculation. For all we know Bok could have been using a stolen Tholian or Breen ship. There's no basis for assuming this much about it. If we are trying to be strictly canon then we don't know anything about this ship other than that there was one. I'm just not convinced this deserves its own entry based on Bok's son; for instance, we don't have an article for the ship that Riker was fighting when he hid in a planet's magnetic polls yet that ship's existence is certainly singled out by mention of his response to it. Perhaps this should be a discussion for the community? Logan 5 17:04, 22 Nov 2005 (UTC)
Good points. I tend to agree. -<unsigned>
It's still a specific Ferengi starship, hell, for that matter it was described as "his first command", therefore sounding much more legit in terms of an "official command" then, saying it was "the first ship he bought (stole, commandeered, etc)". When all is said and done, whether the ship was of Ferengi design or not, it was under Ferengi command and should be recognized as a "Ferengi ship" as much as Dukat's Bird-of-Prey is recognized as a "Cardassian ship", or Lurin's Bird-of-Prey's would be recognized as "Ferengi ships", despite not being of Ferengi design, but Ferengi control. Nevertheless, Bok's son's starship just sounds plain silly. --Alan del Beccio 14:18, 10 June 2006 (UTC)
