Last appearance field in infoboxes?[edit]

Hi all! I'm in the process of review Chakotay for Miyagawa, and it was pointed out that the infobox template doesn't have a "Last appearance" option. What does everyone think of adding one? While characters appear infinitely in non-canon works, at a certain point, we can safely assume that they won't appear again on screen, like the cast of Voyager. Even if someone does reappear years later (a la Spock in the rebooted film series), we can just update the article to make the newest appearance the last one.)

Thoughts? -- Zanimum (talk) 01:06, 12 March 2014 (UTC)

If it is added...and I don't currently have strong feelings on that...I believe the documentation should clearly specify that the field refers to their last appearance in production order. I.e. the last appearance of William Riker would be in "These are the Voyages", not Nemesis. In other words, out-of-universe. DonIago (talk) 13:06, 12 March 2014 (UTC)
I'm iffy, leaning toward disinclined. If the "last appeared" were more strongly connected to "portrayed by" or the notion of the live-action appearance, that'd pass muster, e.g. clearly conveying, "Robert Beltran last portrayed the character in Endgame." As you say, though, there're lots of EU appearances, to say nothing of him also "last" "appearing" *to me* when a third-season episode flashed on the screen last week. Ya know? The "last" part also suggests finality, rather than e.g. "most recent." Meh. --EEMIV (talk) 14:49, 12 March 2014 (UTC)

Dead-end links for Star Trek species[edit]

Links for many species like Hirogen can be clicked from many articles, but they go to an article with no relevant information. Some previousdiscussion Art LaPella (talk) 16:44, 24 April 2014 (UTC)

And I think that when one removes the content that a wikilink is directing readers to, one should correct the wikilinks at the same time. Art LaPella (talk) 17:11, 24 April 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the notice. Let's continue at Talk:List_of_Star_Trek_races#Linked_but_missing_ST_races?Fayenatic London 13:06, 27 April 2014 (UTC)

It happened again, in a different article. Many of the dead-end links I just fixed were dead-ended again, and I'm less motivated to fix it all over again. The reader doesn't benefit from deleting allegedly unencyclopedic material, if you leave a hundred links pointing to an explanation that disappeared. Art LaPella (talk) 18:51, 20 May 2014 (UTC)

Leaflet For Wikiproject Star Trek At Wikimania 2014[edit]

Hi all,

My name is Adi Khajuria and I am helping out with Wikimania 2014 in London.

One of our initiatives is to create leaflets to increase the discoverability of various wikimedia projects, and showcase the breadth of activity within wikimedia. Any kind of project can have a physical paper leaflet designed - for free - as a tool to help recruit new contributors. These leaflets will be printed at Wikimania 2014, and the designs can be re-used in the future at other events and locations.

This is particularly aimed at highlighting less discoverable but successful projects, e.g:

• Active Wikiprojects: Wikiproject Medicine, WikiProject Video Games, Wikiproject Film

• Tech projects/Tools, which may be looking for either users or developers.

• Less known major projects: Wikinews, Wikidata, Wikivoyage, etc.

• Wiki Loves Parliaments, Wiki Loves Monuments, Wiki Loves ____

• Wikimedia thematic organisations, Wikiwomen’s Collaborative, The Signpost

Only just spotted this, so I've filled out a table on behalf of the project. Miyagawa (talk) 21:55, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

Enterprise: Two Days Two Nights S1E25[edit]

Hi All, I just looked at the page for Enterprise episode Two Days Two Nights and noticed that the link for the actor Stephen Wozniak incorrectly goes to the Apple Inc. co-founder's page.

The link is in the info box and I have no idea how to correct it. Also, I doubt I should be mucking about in such things. I hope this is an effective place to call attention to the error. Memory alpha has a blurb on the actor if we are allowed to use it:

  • I've turned the link into a red link, so anyone can create an article on him WormTT(talk) 07:14, 24 July 2014 (UTC)

Film franchise and Star Trek: Axanar[edit]

Why does the film franchise article list the fan film Star Trek: Axanar ? It would not seem to be part of the "reboot" universe, nor part of the film franchise. -- (talk) 05:54, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

In short, it shouldn't - and has already been removed. Miyagawa (talk) 17:59, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

Starlog archives[edit]

Just thought people would want to know - the complete archives of Starlog have been added to - running from the late 70s all the way through to the mid 90s. Miyagawa (talk) 20:25, 7 September 2014 (UTC)
