Cool idea. For the letter, may I suggest adding <span style="float:right; font-size:700%;margin:0.2em">{{{1}}}</span> at the top of the page instead of using a table? That seems to cut of part of the letters...

You still seem to be working on it, otherwise I would have added it myself.-- Cid Highwind 19:33, 11 May 2006 (UTC)

the letter Phi Edit

One of the few Greek letters that is still missing is the letter Phi. I am not aware of any mention of the letter in dialogue but it was depicted on a LCARS monitor as part of the planet Phi Puma. Now comes the tricky part: Here's the graphic that was taken from the Star Trek Spaceflight Chronology:

Spaceflight Chronology starchart 5

The two lines of the undecipherable text in the center of the circle read Phi Puma Supernova. This is not legible on screen, but we have created many articles for names not legible on dedication plaques or other viewscreens, Memory Gamma, or Chess-Wilson, for example, so I guess we could also creat pages for the few ships and planets/stars visible on those 5 Spaceflight Chronology maps. I don't want to bring this up just for the sake of creating another Greek letter page, but have been wondering about those names from the Chronology for a while. What do you guys think? --Jörg 19:48, 11 May 2006 (UTC)

I believe that, as with thecase of Memory Gamma and Chess-Wilson, any text that was used onscreen and readable in the printed source can be made into a canon article. -- Captain M.K.B. 20:43, 11 May 2006 (UTC)

mu and nu Edit

Greek letters and formulas

Greek letters

mu and nu were also seen on screen, as part of Albert Einstein's formulas in "The Nth Degree". Look at the right side of the screenshot, there's Rμν-1/2... written on the blackboard. It's also features here (though I have no idea what this is about) [1] --Jörg 20:49, 11 May 2006 (UTC)

i guess that ν (nu) symbolizes the neutrino. -- Captain M.K.B. 20:54, 11 May 2006 (UTC)
and mu is a muon in this case (having read, and not understood in the slightest, the paper :) ). -- sulfur 13:48, December 21, 2011 (UTC)


Shouldn't the output of this template be in the past tense? -- Capricorn (talk) 19:26, May 1, 2013 (UTC)

No. It is used as a disambiguation template except in two instances, Nu and Pi. We could adapt the template slightly to change those two instances to "past tense" though. -- sulfur (talk) 19:39, May 1, 2013 (UTC)

Oh, I actually noticed the issue on pi, and then (believe it or not) randomly checked Nu from the greek language cat to check if it wasn't a one-off thing. So the disambiguation function went over my head. I guess given my very limited understanding of templates this is where I cease to have anything to contribute on this issue. -- Capricorn (talk) 19:58, May 1, 2013 (UTC)
