Don't merge in planet entries
This is a neat reference giving short details of all the planets. Several have their own articles, which could sensibly be expanded. Moving the whole article about the planet would unbalance this article. Throwing away existing work makes no sense. --GwydionM (talk) 17:28, 16 August 2010 (UTC)
If anyone has any references to work being done on the real life counterparts of these stories or fables, I think it would be very useful to include it. For example, the parallels between Aka and Maoist China. Ursula Le Guin has a huge interest in anthropology and it would be useful to flesh out the article by including some of her inspirations, if anyone can find them.Totorotroll (talk) 14:49, 24 March 2011 (UTC)
Support of Merge
I support merging this to Planets of the Hainish Cycle. There just isn't enough material here to justify a whole Wikipedia article. Everything relevant here can easily be contained on the other page without losing content. Npd2983 (talk) 23:19, 19 May 2012 (UTC)
Please would someone point to the source for the statement: "The Hainish placed fossils and other artefacts on Terra as an experiment to trick the settlers into believing that human life had evolved on Terra." This reader (me) hasn't read nearly half the Hainish material, but to him it seems odd that UKL would try to explain the discrepancy between fact and fiction in this particular way.

- I agree. It should be removed if no source can be cited.--GwydionM (talk) 10:57, 20 April 2014 (UTC)
Undid the removal
People have worked hard to collect excellent data on planets whose detailed are scattered between different stories. We need it.
I don't understand the mentality of people who want to throw away data, as if it were costing them something. The whole point of a reference work is to present data conveniently, which means some duplication.
But the Hainish cycle article doesn't even give a list of the planets, never mind any details.
