Semi-protected edit request on 29 May 2014[edit]

I wish to add an entry under parodies about the IRS training video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Exp6QNEamCE) and subsequent complaints.

Myrce (talk) 13:31, 29 May 2014 (UTC)

Has a reliable source taken note of the video? Parodies should have independent sourcing as a means of establishing that they are significant in some manner; otherwise there could be hundreds of parodies listed. DonIago (talk) 13:53, 29 May 2014 (UTC)

This article is still locked i wanted to change the link from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/These_Are_the_Voyages...#Reception to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/These_Are_the_Voyages...#Reception_and_home_media_release but i cannot edit the page. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.204.228.159 (talk) 02:26, 9 February 2015 (UTC)

Axanar[edit]

Erm, Star Trek: Axanar redirects here, but is not mentioned in the article. 78.35.193.39 (talk) 00:29, 17 June 2014 (UTC)

It mentions about it in Star Trek fan productions as well as the planned fan film. JJ98 (Talk) 07:56, 30 October 2014 (UTC)

Fan section[edit]

I completely rewrote the fan fiction part of the page. My computer was acting up, and admittedly the first couple of edits were sloppy. I cut out a lot of material so I would not unduly cover one section, but some of the stuff could be put back into it. I put the original paragraph here.

I do not support this change at the moment and have reverted back one more time.--Mark Miller (talk) 01:31, 26 July 2014 (UTC)
I certainly prefer that draft to the current one. The attention given to Axanar seems disproportionate.Donners (talk) 22:20, 26 July 2014 (UTC)

I am not sure what is up with Wikipedia today. Previews aren't showing the whole text. It is extremely hard to edit like this. Moreover, Wikipedia isn't signing properly.

I agree, I probably should have worked on the paragraph more than what I did. I just think the original section focused too much one two series, Star Trek Phase II and Star Trek Axanar. The Star Trek fan films are quite diverse and should have better representation than what they have at the moment. Moreover the details about the two fan productions is way too much, considering the fact that this is a page that discusses the Star Trek Franchise as a whole. I am willing to discuss this, but "I do not support this change at the moment" is a bit vague.(Dunno who's signature is supposed to be here, but it ain't mine)
Testing....test, test, test.--Mark Miller (talk) 01:31, 26 July 2014 (UTC)
Y'all forgot a closing ref tag. Ian.thomson (talk) 01:27, 26 July 2014 (UTC)
Not Y'all. But at least it has been figured out.--Mark Miller (talk) 01:31, 26 July 2014 (UTC)

I removed the paragraph above because it was causing weird formatting errors on this page. The Star Trek fan productions page did not have a Axanar section, so I basically copy/pasted the same paragraph onto that page. . . It isn't going away, it is just moved to a different page. I am going to try to merge what I wrote with the existing stuff. I really think the phase 2 and the axanar stuff needs to get a major trim. . . . Oldag07 (talk) 18:05, 27 July 2014 (UTC)

I've haven't figured out since I sometimes improve a little bit since I got books about it. JJ98 (Talk) 20:23, 6 October 2014 (UTC)

Cultural impact : Technology section[edit]

How long is this page expected to be semi-protected? Surely not indefinitely, that seems like overkill. Isn't the typical length six months or something?

There should be a specific sub-section under Cultural impacts for Technology that was inspired by Trek. They are scattered among the Trek articles in wikipedia, but it's an important part of Trek's legacy. Things like the cell phone, tricorders, iPads, etc.

Surely this is at least an important a category as magazines, which does have its own subsection? 75.17.118.247 (talk) 01:50, 18 October 2014 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 7 March 2015[edit]

I notice a grammatically ill-formed sentence, i.e. "Moreover, the show is noted for its progressive for its era civil rights stances", which perhaps should be "Moreover, the show is noted for its progressive civil rights stances." Sam Joseph (talk) 21:00, 7 March 2015 (UTC)

Good catch; change made. Newyorkbrad (talk) 22:48, 7 March 2015 (UTC)
