Page history[edit]

This list was created by merging four articles following discussion at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Badlands (Star Trek) and Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Delphic Expanse. The other articles were Neutral zone (Star Trek) and Briar Patch (Star Trek), each of which seemed to fit as it was already a brief list.

Reasons for merging

This article List of Star Trek regions of space gives additional context, distinguishing one area from another. It also protects the articles from deletion to some extent, by securing notability, since as it is sufficient that the concept (i.e. locations) is sufficient; it is not necessary for notability to be demonstrated for each item in the list. See the AFDs above for a little more info along these lines. - Fayenatic (talk) 19:52, 11 December 2007 (UTC)

Merge in Sector 001[edit]

The article is a few sentences long and would fit perfectly in this newly created article. Judgesurreal777 (talk) 19:39, 28 December 2007 (UTC)

I thought that might come up. Yes check.svg Done - Fayenatic (talk) 10:45, 29 December 2007 (UTC)

Merge in Bajoran wormhole[edit]

Doesn't have any notability, and will finish the sector consolidation stuff. Judgesurreal777 (talk) 21:59, 1 January 2008 (UTC)

I haven't merged Bajoran wormhole here, because it is not a "region of space" in the same way that the others are. If the only alternative is deletion, I'd overlook that, because I think it needs to be kept.
However, as an alternative, what about merging it to Deep Space Nine (space station), which is about the main setting of the series? - Fayenatic (talk) 20:46, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

::I see your point, I'll propose that merger instead. Judgesurreal777 (talk) 23:57, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

On further consideration, the Wormhole is so massive, and in one spot, I think it would constitute a region of space. Besides, the Space station article probably wouldn't be the right place to put it, so I again propose putting it here. Judgesurreal777 (talk) 04:41, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

Doesn't Seem Right...[edit]

There is also a second barrier at the core of the Milky Way, which was first revealed in the motion picture Star Trek V: The Final Frontier. Being the only encounter ever shown, the only known reference is the "Great Barrier". This energy barrier at the core was thought to be impenetrable like the one at the edge of the galaxy; however, it was revealed that only mankind's natural fear of the unknown was keeping them from entering it."

This paragraph seems to contradict or fails to mention the 4th-season Next Generation episode The Nth Degree, in which the Enterprise-D traveled to "the center of the galaxy." Miqrogroove (talk) 18:29, 4 August 2008 (UTC)

References[edit]

This article needs many more references to support its statements, even if it is only identifying the TV episodes which are sources. Naming these would be particularly helpful when additional, or conflicting, information is revealed in different episodes. And in standard Wikipedia terms, the final paragraph of the "Briar Patch" section appears to be original research. Alfrew (talk) 21:35, 9 January 2013 (UTC)

There are many Star Trek and Star Wars pages just like this (just look up any of the "List of Star Trek (or Star Wars) Species/Planets/Characters/etc" pages) and its almost all OR or fancruft or both. In reality 90% should be cut because its impossible for almost anyone to know what is "true" and what isn't. I finally decided to just revert the obvious nonsense and turn a blind eye to the rest. Hopefully you have more time than me... Ckruschke (talk) 17:35, 10 January 2013 (UTC)Ckruschke

Mutara Nebula, anyone?[edit]

Am I the only person who thinks it's odd that "Mutara Nebula" redirects to this page and there is nothing on the subject to found here?__209.179.93.170 (talk) 19:44, 11 October 2014 (UTC)

I agree. This edit therefore seems mistaken. That editor does not seem to be active any more, so I have gone ahead and reverted the redirect back to Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan instead. – Fayenatic London 15:10, 12 October 2014 (UTC)
