I've never heard of the class of ship before. Not that I doubt the entry, I was just wondering from where this name came (the source, i.e. book, video game, the Okudas, et al.). --Lenonn 14:03, 22 Mar 2005 (EST)

Denise Okuda can be heard in the extra features of the special edition of Buckaroo Banzai,additionally Greg Jein was a modelmaker in the movie's crew,there is even video and audio footage of him discussing the construction of the Black Lectroid Thermopod,additionally Yoydyne Propulsion Systems,the company working as Government contractors,is run by Lord Whorfin through the proxy of John Bigbooté,it is mentioned as one of the contributors to the the construction of Federation ships in the TNG Technical manual.

The name appeared on an okudagram, and was mentioned in the ST: Encyclopedia as a result. --Alan del Beccio 14:08, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

It wasn't mentioned in the ST: Encyclopedia - I've just checked. No sign of "Whorfin" being mentioned anywhere. I've never heard the name before. DaveSubspace Message 02:41, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

"El-Aurian" ships? Edit

Why are these listed as "El-Aurian" ships? One of them is named after a TOS ambassador for crying out loud. It makes far more sense that they are Federation ships. --64.230.124.130 18:58, 25 January 2009 (UTC)

Simple: El-Aurian registry – yes, the one named after a Federation ambassador. --Alan 19:14, 25 January 2009 (UTC)

Ok, fair enough. The problem is though, is that this article (and other related articles) seem to suggest that these ships are actually El-Aurian designs as well. Is there a way we could make it clear that that isn't the case? 64.230.124.130 19:50, 25 January 2009 (UTC)

Not seeing that as the case for this article: "used by the El Aurians", but I did change the other two pages to specify that they are under El-Aurian registry. And I agree, the Yoyodyne reference does tend to suggest Federation design origins. --Alan 19:59, 25 January 2009 (UTC)
