STO Edit

Our policy with STO references has been to have only references about a subject where significant information is revealed about them (i.e. a major character dying/getting married/promoted, the destruction of a ship, a planet being destroyed, etc.) We've done so to avoid having a "this was in STO" on pretty much every page here, since we are not the STO wiki. As such, I removed the note on Olympic class as it only stated that it was present in the game along with some game-specific technical information that this isn't really the forum for. 31dot (talk) 03:25, February 26, 2013 (UTC)

Please reference this discussion where this policy arose from. 31dot (talk) 03:44, February 26, 2013 (UTC)

As evidenced by the recent revisions to the Olympic class article, it appears you are not treating Star Trek Online with the same standard as other licensed works. Many articles for people, places, ships, ship classes etcetera have apocrypha sections in which their respective appearances in licensed works are listed. Whether 'you' like a particular licensed work or not is irrelevant, it 'is' a licensed work as should be handled with the same standards as all other.

Yes, we aren't treating it with the same standards as other works- because it is a vastly different product than other works and should be treated differently. It purports to recreate virtually the entire Star Trek universe and its contents. Most other works do not attempt to do that.

The issue isn't whether I like it or not, the issue is that we don't want virtually every page here to have "this was in STO" on it. We aren't the STO wiki. Now, if there is some significant fact about the Olympic class revealed in STO that wasn't said in canon(such as information about its armaments or other tech, decommissioning, etc.) then we can have something. But we need more than the fact it's in the game. 31dot (talk) 04:04, February 26, 2013 (UTC)
