DS17 nav template

Wallace is linked as it was posted to the station, it's crew were on dual assignment as we were posted to both Wallace & DS17 and regularly had missions (not just shore leave) on the station. If Triumphant is the same then very well but if not then either leave it in the Ithassa Region bit and off the DS17 menu OR add Indy-A and maybe Ursa Major too... - JayTalk 04:11, 29 June 2007 (CDT)

  • As both Admiral Anassasi and Hollis have said, Deep Space 17 serves the Ithassa Fleet (and vice versa). I think the best course is to just change the wording of the text from craft assigned to starship support, as this better reflects the joint and collaborative voices of several crews instead of just one, as it should be. ;-) DCody 19:48, 29 June 2007 (CDT)
  • That's my fault, I wrote the Wallace and DS17 pages as one section at first about two years ago. - JayTalk 04:28, 2 July 2007 (CDT)
  • Thank you for the responses. I will try and get those fixed. I am still working on learning how to use Wikki properly. I have also asked various people about how to do things when I was having problems trying to do any changes or additions. Still working on getting them all fixed. If I missed something just tell me and I will get to it. Again thank you for the input. Canreb July 1, CANADA DAY, 2007
  • Well the admins are here to help, if you want help with anything then feel free to ask us ;) - JayTalk 04:28, 2 July 2007 (CDT)


Please make sure you're adding categories to every page you create. Thanks! --Wolf /talk page 10:49, 30 June 2007 (CDT)

  • I think I have been able to go back and add Categories to every thing I have added. In those cases where I have added the wrong ones I have tried to go back and change them to the proper ones. Canreb 7 August 2007

Re: Template:Asterospolis

Normally, the images used in nav templates are 175px x 90px. Just keeps a nice uniformity to all of them, whenever possible. Just an FYI... --Wolf /talk page 00:17, 2 July 2007 (CDT)

  • Thanks for letting me know. I will keep that in mind for the future. If I can find an asteroid picture the right size I will replace it. Canreb 4 July 2007,

Free Trade Union

I am removing the Grendailli link again... unless you have information that is an update of what is already posted, this race is not a member of the FTU. Thanks. DCody 14:36, 5 July 2007 (CDT)

Phaelasour & Ilbera species

Were these species shown, mentioned, or referred to on a Star Trek episode or movie? If not, then they should not be listed in the "restricted" category. Instead, until they are reviewed and approved, they need to be listed in the "Non-Reviewed Species" and the Non-Canon Species categories. For an example, see Adanni. --Wolf /talk page 21:33, 4 August 2007 (CDT)

  • I just added some details to the Phaelasour listing. I have no idea about them. The same goes for the Ilbera who were mentioned by my First Officer. I will change them. Canreb


To leave the timestamp, type 4 tildes (e.g. ~~~~). It'll also provide a link to profile, and save you typing it all out manually ;) JayTalk 19:32, 9 August 2007 (CDT)

Break tags are not necessary in most cases

I noticed that you're using a lot of <br> tags in your markup. You'd be better off, instead, using bullet points. Also, instead of just bolding section headings, use the subheadings marketup. You can see examples of both these changes, here. --Wolf /talk page 16:03, 3 September 2007 (CDT)

Devitt, Darla

Just curious but does the USS Berlin mean the same ship as the Excelsior class vessel named in TNG? If not then feel free to remove the link. Also, naming convention for pages is surname first, then given name(s). - Lt.JG SalakTalk 11:09, 19 October 2007 (CDT)

  • I used the name because I had read of it in one of the novels, so it probally is the same ship as that from the show. Also I will try and remember to do the names in the right order. Canreb Canreb 15:37, 19 October 2007 (CDT)

Talk:Blank NPC page

I left a note on the above linked talk page a while ago. If it's possible for the quiery to be answered? The group has various existing templates for PC's, and it wouldn't be too hard to adjust the page to work in the same way. - Lt.JG SalakTalk 05:43, 29 October 2007 (CDT)

  • I have seen some of them.... I just added the blank one to the master crew list at the bottom of the list to make it easier for me or any other member of the crew who might want to use it to find it. canreb Canreb 20:31, 5 November 2007 (CST)
    • Well you can easily paste the text of one of the templates onto a page by typing, for example {{subst:Bioadvanced}}, which would give you the text of Template:Bioadvanced. (subst being short for substitute, the {{}} bit around the text being code to insert a template, much as [[]] is the code for a link) Just thought that might be simpler and could be easily rolled out across the fleet too. - Lt.JG SalakTalk 13:30, 6 November 2007 (CST)
    • Thanks.. I am still learning how to do things within the Wikki environment... a lot a trial and error... hopefully the finished product is not to shabby...Canreb 20:47, 6 November 2007 (CST)

Naming pages properly

Hello. Thank you for taking such an interest in the wiki. However, I do need you to please carefully review the Naming pages properly article. Some of your page names are not specific enough, such as Current Crew Roster, and will have to be moved. Thanks! --Wolf /talk page 19:28, 7 January 2008 (CST)

Ship Nav

Don't forget your ship nav. ;-) Saves the trouble of hitting the back button on browsers. DCody 10:49, 10 January 2008 (CST)

Naming pages properly:warning part II

Hey, just a reminder about naming pages properly (see above). -Varaan 12:27, 10 January 2008 (CST)

MA content

When creating articles, unless you are adding something with details specific to our SB118 universe, just link to the appropriate Memory Alpha article. We aren't here to copy canon information already available, but to create our SB118 universe in detail. Thanks. -Varaan 12:27, 10 January 2008 (CST)

Eagle nav

I've removed a chunk of links as I thought they'd belong better on the as yet unwritten deck listings page. The menu was reading as a long, unbroken list and didn't look too good. If you really feel they should go on there then I'd suggest indenting them or breaking the list up into more section seperated by horizontal lines (----). I've also corrected a few links so that they point to where the Eagles pages should be instead of general disambiguation pages. - Lt.JG SalakTalk 10:06, 11 January 2008 (CST)

Eagle History

Just a thought - there's a not-quite-canon reference from an old roleplay sourcebook that mentions a USS Eagle, Constitution-class, as being crewed entirely by Andorians around the time of TOS. If you wanted to add it to past ships called 'Eagle' there's some info on Memory Alpha. Hutch 16:09, 13 February 2008 (CST)

*holds hands up* I'm largely to blame for the Previous ships called Eagle page, it's effectively a load of info dumped there and needs a clean up. I put what I could find up about the Eagle a year or two ago, long before it was actually recommissioned. A lot of it is from Wikipedia, with a bit from MA but there might be more at each now. If you want to try tidy it up, try to make each entry brief, we don't want redundancy. Wikipedia has info for ships named USS Eagle and HMS Eagle, there might be ships with other prefixes I've forgotten. You can link to wikipedia by typing wp: in front of a link name, e.g. wp:USS Eagle, with wp replaced with ma for Memory Alpha. Add a vertical bar | at the end of the link to lose the prefix, e.g. USS Eagle. On later inspection, the wiki will automatically add the text minus the prefix to the link after the line. - Lt. SalakTalk 17:56, 13 February 2008 (CST)


Please see Talk:Cart'hen Star System for comments regarding the size of objects in that star system. Thanks. - Lt. SalakTalk 04:22, 4 March 2008 (CST)


1: The main ship page could do with a pic. If you have MSN (burwellian AT hotmail DOT co DOT uk) or YIM (burwellian), I have a folder of pics I managed to get off Star Trek Australia just before it went down so might be able to help there. Done - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 21:32, 12 March 2008 (CDT)

2: The Previous ships called Eagle page needs work. I started it ages ago, whilst Eagle was still an unused ship, but the blurb needs editing down (ideally to a paragraph a ship), plus I've only put stuff on 3 of the Royal Navy's Eagles on there. Follow the link at the bottom and you'll find there have so far been a lot more than 3... 18 if I'm not mistaken. It might be worth picking and choosing the most prestigeous of ships as fitting over 20 ships onto one page could be interesting. As it's your ship and you seem an active editor, I thought you might want to pick up that baton, or know someone else who will :) - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 14:33, 6 March 2008 (CST)


Mission Archive looks good now it's been split up a bit under headers. I've made a comment on the Eagle talk page regarding the relevence of the content of the main article. - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 18:06, 14 March 2008 (CDT)

Oh, I undid your edits to Intrepid class as this is a wiki mainly for material that is canon only to us. Practically all the info you added to it seemed canon and thus is likely on the MA page (which by rule is linked from the ship nav). We don't want to duplicate what's on Memory Alpha really. - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 18:41, 14 March 2008 (CDT)

I moved the stuff like you asked... just thought it would be of use at the Intrepid Class spot I put it... since that location gives next to no info regarding that class... my mistake... sorry Canreb 19:13, 14 March 2008 (CDT)

It's no prob. Whole point of that page is just to tell us what ships in the fleet are of that class really. For canon stuff, always best to link to Memory Alpha. - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 19:26, 14 March 2008 (CDT)

crew roster

Whoops, he's one of Indy's engineers, lol. Thought you might like that layout, seems half the fleet uses it now. - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 09:05, 15 March 2008 (CDT)

Actually YES I do... thanks... I had been considering makeing the change myself... but have been buzy doing other changes and upgrades... In fact I am trying to add or update the Cart'hen pages... as my Captain was hopeing it could become a well used plot location... Canreb 09:23, 15 March 2008 (CDT)

Think I'd been told that on the forums. It's one less thing on your to-do list then :) - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 09:27, 15 March 2008 (CDT)


a) Does the Sector have a proper name? The Carraya Sector? Sector 1034? Something like that? b) Have you seen Image:Starbase118-map.jpg which could influence the development of the region? - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 13:15, 19 March 2008 (EDT)

Hello... I have a copy of the map in front of me that I had printed out and enlarged... Eventually I will post the map with the stars named that I have done up systems for...

As for a Sector name... I thought Starbase 118... after all it is the most important item in this sector... it is the main base for the game... and it is almost in the center of the sector...

Go to the new page I made called Space Sector - Starbase 118 - I linked all the systems I have done work on to it so far... Canreb 13:20, 19 March 2008 (EDT)

I enlarged the map to make it easier to measure distance for the info added to the different pages... also so I could add the names to the page and then post it... just the 1 sector by it self... Canreb 13:22, 19 March 2008 (EDT)

Okay. Surely the sector would have been known and named before an important base like SB118 would have been built there though? ;) - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 13:27, 19 March 2008 (EDT)
Whilst on the subject, have you any source for where you got the sector co-ord layout? It seems to lack a third dimension, meaning anything at those co-ord covers an infinite vertical distance and is fairly useless. Given a sector is 20ly x 20ly x 20ly, it could mean any one of a large number of sectors. - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 13:31, 19 March 2008 (EDT)

I used both the star charts located on this wikki and from the book Star Trek Star Charts - The complete Atlas of Star Trek by Geoffrey Mandel I need to add the third dimension factor for each system and item in Space Sector - Starbase 118 - I had been playing around with also calling the sector Trinity due to it being the juction point of 3 major space power's... I was thinking I would plot the exact location of each item useing the 3 different directions... with a - or + for the 3rd dimension... - being down and + being up... Canreb 13:50, 19 March 2008 (EDT)

The one referance I have been useing plus the book above describes space as a HUGE disk like shape... but with some depth... in this case either plus 10 lightyears or minus 10 lightyears depending on it's location either above or below the center line... the major part of the plate... or do we just want to list it as just from bottom to top ot top to bottom...Canreb 13:56, 19 March 2008 (EDT)

I wanted some input and suggestions on how to handle... list 3 dimensional locations... I figure my system has to match what this group wants to use... then I could add it at the Space Sector page under the location description of each item in the sector... Let me know what system YOU want me to use... that way it will be useful and make sense... Canreb 14:03, 19 March 2008 (EDT)

Academy Library#Flight Control (Navigation) might be of use. What's there wasn't put up by me but was familiar to me before I joined the group too. On the Navigating a starship page, the Galactic Co-ords refer to XYZ, where X would be the border between Alpha & Gamma or Beta & Delta. Y would be the border between Alpha & Beta or Gamma & Delta. Z would be perpendicular to both running vertically. The Sun is 26,000 ± 1400 light-years from the Galactic Centre. We're a barred spiral galaxy by the way. And I can't think off hand of an issue with "Trinity sector". - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 14:34, 19 March 2008 (EDT)

OK... if Trinity is the choice I guess I need to make some changes... still have to learn how to delete a page after I make one by mistake... then I will creat the Trinity page and move everything... plus update it...Canreb 21:20, 19 March 2008 (EDT)

To delete a page, tag it with {{delete}} and one of the sysops will do it. It's a sysop-only tool. Also, to move things, please either hit the move tab at the top of the page or call in a sysop to do it. That way, we don't lose the page history. - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 23:36, 19 March 2008 (EDT)

I'm probably seeming a pain in the neck aren't I? :P Regardless, please see Talk:Trinity Sector. - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 17:00, 27 March 2008 (EDT)

"Under Construction"

There's no reason to mark articles "Under Construction" -- the whole wiki is under constant construction ;) --Wolf /talk page 02:20, 21 March 2008 (EDT)

Interwiki links.

1) Case you didn't see what I added to the talk page a few mins ago, see here
2) I take it you've worked out what I did with the links? The same works with wikipedia links too, just wp instead of ma in the markup. :) - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 17:13, 27 March 2008 (EDT)

Yes I did see it... and I did figure it out... took me a few try's ... plus I checked some links that others had made to make sure I was doing it right...Canreb 17:21, 27 March 2008 (EDT)

I saw the few tries too :) It's a useful little tool, saves the arrow thing popping up, cuts the page length a tad and saves a ream of url code too :) Might save you a few seconds in future - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 17:23, 27 March 2008 (EDT)

Trinity sector

Hope you like the new menu. I've begun an overhaul of the Cart'hen system pages already, with the new Trinity Sector template, a Cart'hen system nav (top left), etc. The system page is an overview, the situation affecting the whole system, with planet stats kept to planet pages. I'd hope a similar overhaul could be done with the sector page such that it covers info regarding politics, stellar cartography of the sector, etc... with it becoming less of a list. Opinion? - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 10:44, 28 March 2008 (EDT)

Sounds good to me... I am just adding a few details and doing the race pages for the Rothians... then I will do it for the Cart'hen and the Raskor... I take it the over all work will be useful... and if so would another sector be of use?? Canreb 10:48, 28 March 2008 (EDT)

Another sector? If your crew want to prep a neighbouring sector or something then fine, that's up to the lot of you as to whether you think it might be needed. The overall work probably will be useful in future, though the more it's all fleshed out now, the less there is to create in sims when you visit these places ;) Also, did you see my further comment regarding the Ophiucus 70 problem yet? After further thought, that name isn't really appropriate to the area. - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 10:54, 28 March 2008 (EDT)

As to Trinity and Acamar sectors... what star names would be found in them... this way I don't mess up again as with Ophiuchus... also I LOVE the Trinity sector nav window... but personnaly I like the star system basic info all on one page with links to any planet with more than basic info...the pre Cart'hen look... but that is just me... I find it easier to work with... I will try and finish Trinity soon... other than the 3 stars in Fed space with no info what else would you like to see??? Canreb 13:57, 2 April 2008 (EDT)

Also is it Ok to name the sector with the other half of the Azure Nebula... the sector to the left of Trinity = Acamar??? Canreb 14:12, 2 April 2008 (EDT)

Replied individually to both on Talk:Trinity Sector. - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 14:38, 2 April 2008 (EDT)

Looking at the star chart for Trinity sector I see I have 3 more stars in Fed controled space... I was considering calling them Corvus #???, Sigma Corvus and maybe Azure #??... numbers still to be determined... these OK?? Canreb 15:45, 2 April 2008 (EDT)

Sigma Corvus should grammatically be Sigma Corvi. A quick google search seems to show no stars by either name. The constellation's close enough for it to be believable. Corvus ?? will also be Corvi ??. Azure isn't a constellation name so play with that name to your hearts content :) For the record, none of the stars in Corvus are above magnitude 4, so are barely visible with the naked eye from Earth. We can see anything below a magnitude 6 unaided in favourable conditions. - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 15:56, 2 April 2008 (EDT)

Next I see the Trinity sector has a tag saying it needs major work... is it work on the Fed controled areas or is it the Klingon space??? or Romulan area?? Canreb 15:47, 2 April 2008 (EDT)

That's because I want to revamp it. I think the system stuff blongs on the system pages, leaving only the top 2 lines or so as being about the actual sector. Why's it so named, what's the history of the region, etc... Things which apply specifically to the sector and not just to little parts of it. - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 15:56, 2 April 2008 (EDT)

P.S. I spot your replies mainly because I check the Recent Changes a lot. It's a lot easier on the person you're talking to if you reply on their talk page. Click on the name linked in the sign off and then on the talk tab at the top (or simply the "talk" link if it's mine or Wolfs' sigs ;) ) - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 16:03, 2 April 2008 (EDT)

Rough outline regarding the start of a revamped overview: User:Salak/Trinity. Might split the Federation, Romulan and Klingon bits of the current page into three new pages anyway, as the nav is getting long now and would link to those rather than to every system. Not yet sure what layout they'd have. They might just be categories, might have a list of star system templates, unsure. - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 19:08, 2 April 2008 (EDT)


Right. What pages you want moved, say. I'll move them so we keep the edit history. - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 14:01, 2 April 2008 (EDT)

OK... I only moved the info for Ophiucus system on the Trinity Sector page to Miri system on the Trinity Sector page... the entire system still has to be moved and each planet renamed... then the 1 inhabited planet needs to be moved to the new Miri page for that planet... When it is done I can then make the changes to explain the confussion in Federation records regarding the mix up in system names...Ophiucus 70 really being Miri system on the opposite side of Sol Canreb 14:07, 2 April 2008 (EDT)

System page moved, planet page moved. If there's anything else, do say please. I've not tweaked the page content yet. I just didn't want to handle another cut and paste move and assumed you were about to do such, hope that's okay? Should be fine to carry on now :) - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 14:11, 2 April 2008 (EDT)

Use edit summaries

Hello. I'm glad to see you've become so enthusiastic about using the wiki. However, I've noticed that you almost never use the "Edit Summary" box. Please make it a habit to do so, as it is an important part of reviewing wiki changes. Thanks! --Wolf /talk page 20:48, 15 April 2008 (EDT)

Sorry... I will try to remember and start useing it... still learning but hope my efforts are of some use... Canreb 21:04, 15 April 2008 (EDT)

Yup, they are of use :) Noticed you've started to add the templates now ;) - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 22:20, 15 April 2008 (EDT)

So far just copying and moveing the one's you have made... but at some point I hope I will figure out how to make them as well... Canreb 01:39, 16 April 2008 (EDT)

Remember: edit summaries :) For examples, see Special:Contributions/FltAdml._Wolf --Wolf /talk page 12:29, 16 April 2008 (EDT)

Right... On the edit page, there's the long box at the bottom next to "Summary". Any text already appearing there will appear on Special:Recentchanges as a link to the section being edited, for example. After that, type a brief record of what you're adding. e.g. If you're adding facts and figures for an Asteroid belt, perhps add the summary "asteroid figures". - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 13:21, 16 April 2008 (EDT)

OK... thanks... now all I have to figure out is how to make templates... Canreb 13:22, 16 April 2008 (EDT)

Templates? Which ones do you want to create? - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 13:30, 16 April 2008 (EDT)
