Template page

The following documentation is transcluded from Template:USS/doc:

This template is intended to simplify the wikicode needed for properly italicizing a starship's name, such as:

[[USS Yamato|USS ''Yamato'']]

The template allows for up to three variables:

  1. Ship's name
  2. Disambiguation (if any)
  3. Textual postfix (if any)
{{USS|Shipname|Disambiguation|Postfix text}}

Usage Edit

The simplest use is with the ship's name, such as:

{{USS|Yamato}}

USS Yamato


Use of the single variable version should be avoided if a name has been given to more than one ship, unless the object is to direct the user to a disambiguation page. An example of this would be:

{{USS|Enterprise}}

USS Enterprise


To use a link to a disambiguating starship name, enter the disambiguation text as the second variable to the template:

{{USS|Exeter|NCC-1672}}

USS Exeter


Please note that for ship names listed with a letter following, such as USS Enterprise-D, that letter that should given as the third variable which is postfixed to the name (unlike the typical third variable which is the entire text):

{{USS|Enterprise|NCC-1701-D|-D}}

USS Enterprise-D
