Thank you for the welcome, it is very nice to be here, and I am glad to help expanding the biggest Star Trek Encyclopedia. I understand you send me this message in November, but I saw it just now.– Spock2266 19:07, 18 April 2007 (UTC)
Point of view in articles Edit
Memory Alpha's primary point of view is that of a character inside the fictional Star Trek universe – an archivist at Memory Alpha, the Federation library planet. Because Star Trek stories take place in many different eras, from the beginnings of life on Earth to the 31st century and beyond, and because forthcoming stories may even expand beyond that, it is important to write all articles from a single perspective: i.e. that of someone looking back at the past. This helps to keep Memory Alpha consistent and understandable. Please read Memory Alpha:Point of view as there are a few exceptions to this rule. Thanks! - Archduk3 22:42, January 20, 2012 (UTC)
