Enterprise F (STO)[edit]

While STO is completly non-canon, there is no realy Enterprise F. So why is thisone added and not the ~1000 other non-canon Enterprises from books and so on ... -- (talk) 18:09, 22 July 2013 (UTC)

I agree. There are multiple Enterprise-Fs from various non-canon Star Trek works. I will remove the Star Trek: Online Enterprise-F. Transphasic (talk) 01:09, 5 September 2013 (UTC)
Canon status is not a criterion for inclusion or exclusion at Wikipedia -- it's a useful notion to deal with in-universe storyline conflicts, but Wikipedia is more concerned with production decisions, third-party coverage, and gooourcingd s.; "canonicity" isn't a hurdle content needs to clear. The STO project has received sufficient third-party coverage to warrant mention here. --EEMIV (talk) 13:35, 5 September 2013 (UTC)
So should Enterprise-F go under "alternate timelines" or "TNG" era? Cause there are still multiple non-canon Enterprise-Fs and Star Trek Online isn't exactly TNG era. Transphasic (talk) 17:07, 26 October 2013 (UTC)
Is the Enterprise-F in any way more notable than other non-canon designs from ST Online, or is it just because of the name? Oh it's the Enterprise!! It has to be an important ship I'm not an ST Online player and I do acknowledge that ST Online is notable, but notability doesn't automatically include everything found in the game.

Name inspiration[edit]

USS Enterprise (CVN-65)#In popular culture elaborates on the inspiration for the name USS Enterprise. This should be mentioned here, shouldn't it? --Florian Blaschke (talk) 23:22, 30 May 2014 (UTC)

Note that the celebrated predecessor of the CVN-65, the CV-6, was of the Yorktown class. Remember that the NCC-1701 was originally called USS Yorktown in Roddenberry's script. --Florian Blaschke (talk) 23:27, 30 May 2014 (UTC)

In the original "Star Trek Engineers Manuel" (issued in the mid-seventies,) the Enterprise was said to be 1200-feet long(363.64-meters). I suppose the propulsion nacelles were extended an extra 100, to 200-feet to clear their warp and propulsion field further from the body of the engine section!!! -- (talk) 23:52, 27 December 2015 (UTC)Veryverser


I suggessted a merge from USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-E) and USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-A). Those two movie-only versions have not received significant independent coverage and pretty clearly fail Wikipedia:Notability (fiction). --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 23:20, 17 January 2017 (UTC)

Keep No never all of the Enterprise ships are notable — Preceding unsigned comment added by MightyDinoPower15 (talkcontribs) 01:34, 18 January 2017 (UTC)

Have it your way. AfD started. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 15:19, 18 January 2017 (UTC)
  • Keep, of course keep the page, all of the Enterprise ships are notable and should have their own articles. Did you put any more of these on AfD, I seldom look at those sad pages and am lucky I came across this one. And please italicize the ship names in your nom, have some respect shipmate.

Kelvin Timeline[edit]

In the above named section, it's stated that the black hole and Romulan appearance created a "new reality."


The black hole created a pathway to an ALTERNATE, but extremely similar, universe.

My proof --- Check any bio of/on Capt. James Tiberius Kirk printed before the 2009 movie and you'll read that Kirk WAS BORN ON EARTH in IOWA - - - NOT IN SPACE ! ! !

Also, notice in the 2009 movie WHERE the starship is being constructed - - - HERE ON EARTH ! ! !

Nero coming through a black hole an untold distance away would not effect how/where starships are constructed.

Given the complexity of the construction set-up in the 2009 movie, the earthbound way of building starships appears to be a long established 'tradition' and the shipyards at Utopia Planetia have probably never existed.

Also, given that Nimoy's Spock character has no memory change --- remember the episode The City on the Edge of Forever and the "Guardian of Forever" after McCoy went through and no one recognized Spock? --- that would happen if it was the same universe.

Given all this, I think the section's intro sentence of --

"The 2009 Star Trek film takes place in a new reality created when the Romulan character Nero traveled through time via an artificial black hole."
should be changed to read something like --
"The 2009 Star Trek film takes place in an alternate universe that the Romulan character Nero and the Vulcan character Spock both reach by traveling back in time through a "Red Matter" artificially created black hole."

What do all of you think? 2600:8800:50B:6700:C23F:D5FF:FEC5:89B6 (talk) 07:55, 1 February 2017 (UTC)
