Opening heading[edit]

This page links to a pilot on the X-4 program, who I seriously doubt is the same guy... Was "ST:E"'s Trip ID for him? Trekphiler 00:17, 6 December 2005 (UTC)

Whoever cleaned up this page you have my utmost thanks. It was an extreme abomination beforehand; pieces of novelized (and therefore uncanonical) fiction meshed freely with the television series. (205.250.167.76 23:50, 5 April 2007 (UTC))

Warp 3, not 2?[edit]

Regarding: "Tucker first met Jonathan Archer about a decade prior to the launch of Enterprise when the two worked together on an early warp 2 prototype vessel utilizing the warp engine designed by Archer's father, Henry Archer."

I just saw the episode in which there are flashbacks from where Cpt. Archer met Cmdr. Tucker (season 2, episode 24 - First Flight). They seem to be testing an an early warp 3 prototype vessel, not warp 2. Ie. a vessel with a theoretical max speed of warp 3 (their goal is to exceed warp 2). —Preceding unsigned comment added by 85.226.172.5 (talk) 15:28, 26 May 2009 (UTC)

Quotes[edit]

I removed this section. "Quotes" is a bit vague -- certainly this isn't an exhaustive list of all his quotes. What're the criteria for inclusion? It looks like this might more aptly be called "Memorable" quotes or "WP:ILIKEIT quotes" -- but that's subjective/non-NPOV. "Notable" quotes would be more significant, but lacking a citation about what makes them memorable, that doesn't work either. Lastly, straight-up quotes should be over in Wikiquote. If someone wants to move them over there, by all means... --EEMeltonIV 11:48, 20 March 2007 (UTC)

Non-Canon?[edit]

I'm curious why the last episode is simply declared (without evidence) to be non-canon? It aired. Doesn't that mean it's canon? Sure, fans hated it, and the writers of the final season hated it. But it aired, and isn't that the criterion of canonicity? I realize there's reason to doubt if all the details were accurate given that it was told through a holodeck program 200 years later, where surely the programmer wouldn't have gotten everything right. Even so, there's reason to expect it to be largely right, and that's not the point. If the episode reports facts unreliably, it would still be canon that it reports Riker and Troi watching the program. It doesn't justify calling the episode non-canon.

Assessment[edit]

I have added a quality assessment rating and importance rating to this article. Feel free to change them as the article improves! Also, feel free to add more issues to the list below, and strike them out (strike) when they're completed. — OranL (talk) 04:02, 4 August 2008 (UTC)

Notable issues[edit]

  • The article's lead section needs expansion.
  • The article comes off as somewhat favorably biased towards the character, especially because of the enormous amount of plot detail.
  • The article doesn't cite any sources, which leads to the presumption that it is original research.

Charles Tucker IIITrip Tucker — In Enterprise, Tucker is introduced as "Charles Tucker III", but commonly referred to as "Trip Tucker". Shouldn't this article therefore be called "Trip Tucker"? – PeeJay 17:31, 16 April 2010 (UTC)
