Preview and capitalizationEdit
A couple of things. Please make use of the "preview" button when making edits rather than making a ton of edits on the same article in a short period of time.
Also, note that we capitalize the word Human here on Memory Alpha, since it is a species just like Romulan, Ferengi, and so forth.
Lastly, we refer to the movies as "Star Trek films". Not "Star Trek motion pictures". -- sulfur 19:06, 24 March 2009 (UTC)
Non-canon information in articles Edit
Please note that Memory Alpha articles only include canon information. If you are interested in contributing information from non-canon licensed Star Trek works (such as from games, novels and comics) you may want to check out Memory Beta. Thanks! 31dot (talk) 12:04, July 2, 2012 (UTC)
You moved the "Dramian system" page to "Dramen system" today with no comment as to why the move was done. Can you please note why this change was made? -- sulfur (talk) 11:30, September 21, 2014 (UTC)
