Moved your profile...

You accidentally edited the template, so I moved your stuff to your character page, where's supposed to be: Cody, David. --Wolf 21:32, 7 February 2006 (CST)

Utopia Planitia

David, while I don't have a problem with you putting up information on Utopia Planitia, part of what we're trying to do here on the wiki is not duplicate information that is in abundance elsewhere on the web. You only have a couple of sentences, which are only a very small part of what others have done, such as the memory alpha site. When possible, try linking to there or elsewhere instread of retyping known information. Like this [], or [].
-Varaan 15:19, 7 June 2006 (CDT)

Oh that was my fault entirely. I started out to do something and stopped for the same reason that was brought up. Meant to take down the article or redirect it to Memory Alpha. DCody 04:48, 14 November 2006 (CST)

Jennet Trade Securities Corporation

David, I set up a link to JTSC so if you feel like writing up a short description on the company you've got somewhere to put it. Throw the category "Companies" at the bottom, too. Thanks. -Varaan 07:35, 10 November 2006 (CST)

Thanks! :) I'm still working on the official short description, but that'll save me from creating the links (and possibily foobarring in process- LOL). DCody 21:52, 10 November 2006 (CST)

Ship Histories

Where did you get that ship name from? Just curious as I've been wanting to try and get a page up for each vessel for ages and I can find very little about some ships, wondering if you've found a source I may have missed - Lt.JG SalakUSS IndependenceTalk 10:49, 11 November 2006 (CST)

Sure it's not an NPC ship then? You've listed Solstice under lost or decommissioned but it could be inactive instead. See Wallace for example, twice decommissioned in the group but technically "inactive" as it's now an NPC ship. I don't know cos I've not seen the context but if there's any more than a ship name? - Lt.JG SalakUSS IndependenceTalk 14:10, 12 November 2006 (CST)

In terms of the Xanth being assigned to the Colony originally, it's most likely the latter case, where it fell to becoming an NPC ship. In terms of the Solstice, because I only have an old website that lists it as a part of the UFOP, there's not enough information to determine whether it's inactive, so I consider it "lost/decommissioned" as it only listed the Capt. designated (and missing the crew). Word of note, if you're after ship/crew histories, the yahoogroups inactive ships are public. What you'll find is with some ships, they went under an original name and then were referred to by a new name/designation (such as in the case of the USS Nemesis, which became the USS Defiance, then to the USS Nemesis-B. And when Demma got in touch with me, I invited him to come to the Wiki as he has a more thorough knowledge of some of the older ships. DCody 16:49, 12 November 2006 (CST)

Ah, ok... And I thought I recognised Demma's name from somewhere :) - Lt.JG SalakUSS IndependenceTalk 18:29, 12 November 2006 (CST)

Indy roster

I thought he'd transfered across? He replied to the roll call asking for how often can be posted, was listed in Sid's crew roster on the townhall list (seemingly without protest) and it makes sense given the Direct OOC's between Jessa and myself about the department recently. Can't find the "welcome aboard" note on townhall but Idril welcomed him aboard IC and he's signed posts as Engineer, DS17 instead of Ursa Major as his profile lists. Oh, and after more than half a year on the same posting (admittedly including a lengthy LOA on my part), you still can't spell my main characters name correctly ;) - Lt.JG SalakUSS IndependenceTalk 05:55, 28 November 2006 (CST)


I've changed the template back to nearer the old style if that's ok, though I've moved the link to the map into the header bit. Any reason for the red bar across the top of the Ithassa Region page? - Lt.JG SalakUSS RoninTalk 10:52, 20 December 2006 (CST)

DS17 Roster

Lt.Cmdr Uka (see DS17 NPC roster) was Chief Ops (& Second Officer?) during Wallaces' time in commission, if that's any help? - Lt.JG Salak USS RoninTalk 21:54, 7 February 2007 (CST)


Sorry, I'm not sure what you're talking about. Can you clarify? --Wolf /talk page 23:37, 22 September 2007 (CDT)

Ah, I see. Hmm... I'll have to look around and see what I have. I'm a packrat, but I haven't even looked at my "old"/archiving folders that had all that stuff. It may be corrupted by now. --Wolf /talk page 16:21, 29 December 2007 (CST)
On review, it looks like the bulk of what I have in terms of sims is from 99 going forward. I do have a bunch of sims from the Ranger around 1996, however, but no chat sims as far as I can tell. The only other things I could find were applications going back to 06/95. --Wolf /talk page 16:33, 29 December 2007 (CST)


Just a quick note: no spaces on either side of the bar | in qualified links. i.e.- this: [[Wolf, Tristan|Tristan Wolf]] NOT this: [[Wolf, Tristan | Tristan Wolf]]. --Wolf /talk page 12:40, 5 January 2008 (CST)

Starbase 118 The Black Tower

I made up Alicia Armstrong -- didn't know we already had another character there. Use whatever's currently correct :) --Wolf /talk page 23:12, 6 January 2008 (CST)

Intrepid class schematics

David, can you elaborate what you're thinking on this? If there's more than two pages in a series of articles, then a category first, and a nav panel if there's a half-dozen or more, and it will help people move around the articles :) --Wolf /talk page 14:59, 10 January 2008 (CST)

Yeah, I agree with that. --Wolf /talk page 00:31, 11 January 2008 (CST)
BTW, there's already this, and each of those pages has a nav at the bottom. --Wolf /talk page 11:22, 11 January 2008 (CST)
Erm, ok, so you may have just created that nav. *whistles tunelessly...* --Wolf /talk page 11:27, 11 January 2008 (CST)

nav templates

Not sure what you mean, are you refering to the nav menu ones on the right of ship pages? - Lt.JG SalakTalk 06:40, 11 January 2008 (CST)

Ah, think I know what you mean. I toyed with a generic page when trying to plan for the Indy-A wiki page before launch. If you mean a generic text with the usual nav and boiler then I certainly won't oppose an attempt. Of course, some ships have far longer pages than others already, so we might be looking at a generic stub that we can gradually add to? - Lt.JG SalakTalk 10:14, 11 January 2008 (CST)
Can't see ya on YIM. I'll undelete the stub thing I had so you can have a look but not sure how much use it'll be. - Lt.JG SalakTalk 10:17, 11 January 2008 (CST)
User:Salak/New ship. The red links are the usual motto bar at the top, the nav on the right and a pic. The bottom stuff is surrounded by <nowiki> markers so the page doesn't get added to those categories. - Lt.JG SalakTalk 10:21, 11 January 2008 (CST)


I've never encountered either character before. I'm happy for either to be incharge of blacktower. Who created the two NPCs? Perhaps we can give them slightly different jobs. They should, however, hold marine ranks.

"Captain Rocar Drawoh | Talk" 19:27, 11 February 2008 (CST)

New Categories

Don't really need to create a category for a character when there's only one article to put in it ;) - Lt. SalakTalk 21:28, 21 February 2008 (CST)

Template:Ithassa Region

Can you not edit it for a few mins please, I'm overhauling it back to the previous layout as a) it brings it into line with Template:Trinity and b) there's a silly little ruled line appearing between the colour bar and the top of the nav that I'm struggling to work out. Thanks - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 13:14, 2 April 2008 (EDT)

Ok, I wasn't clear. I'm changing it to the previous layout, but with the current links. Hence why it isn't a simple 2 second revert. - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 13:19, 2 April 2008 (EDT)
Couldn't get the Starfleet presence header to work at the bottom without messing up the appearence. Thoughts? - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 13:31, 2 April 2008 (EDT)
You got the link title wrong (we both fixed it at the same time) but I've now removed the Starfleet Presence from the top so it isn't duplicated :P - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 13:41, 2 April 2008 (EDT)

Ithassa Location

Just looking through Category:Star Charts maps, the same charts used to show the location of StarBase 118. Image:SFMap-part4.jpg is an overview of known space, and was thinking where the region fits in, given the main species about. The big blue area is the Federation. With the orange bit bottom left being Tholian, there's a nice looking blank bit above that and left of "Chart 3" which could be the location. In addition, I think I recall Breen being mentioned on Indy not too long ago (TE IV mission?). They're the big brownish area above the space.

The problem is the Gorn and the Tzenkethi. The Tzenkethi are the little yellow blob on the border between charts 1 & 3, which isn't TOO far away, but is still probably not close enough to really be thought of as in the region. The peach blob below them are the Cardassians with the Talarians the light blue below that. I'm not aware that either have been mentioned in the region. Worse; the Gorn seem to be the gray patch to the bottom right of the big blue circle (marking 250ly from Sol) on the overview, below Klingon space, a long, long way from the area. The scale is also an issue... the gap in question is only about 75ly wide and perhaps 120 ly long. That is still about 4 sectors by 6 sectors = a fair 24 sectors (assuming only one thick in height). The specs on the Ithassa Region suggest the region is perhaps the size of the entire Federation (~ 750ly x 750ly?) on those star maps.

Alternatively, there's a nice blue bit between the Tholians and Gorn, but it's even further from the Tzenkethi and has the little issue of a huge Klingon border along the top edge. Plus, being blue, it's certainly Federation space, likely has member worlds within it and is likely quite explored already, what with being between Earth and such places as the Mutara Nebula, Ceti Alpha, Rigel, Cestus III... - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 21:06, 2 April 2008 (EDT)

Hence why I removed it from the talk page. Was planning to move it to e-mail anyway. Expect something in your inbox (and cc'd to at least the Admiral too) in a few mins. - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 23:09, 2 April 2008 (EDT)

Sent. The map was e-mailed to me as one of two maps which had Ithassa labelled. It was only in the context of trying to pinpoint where this elusive bit of space is :) - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 23:20, 2 April 2008 (EDT)

TE system

Varaan's created a system page, splitting it off TE-IV. I've now created the tiniest of stubs for each planet and rolled the Cart'hen style content template out for the system too. It is Triades-Episolon and not Triades-Epsilon, right? Varaan changed the spelling, I changed it back, want to be sure that was the correct move. - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 11:24, 3 April 2008 (EDT)

Am I right in thinking DS17 is in the Eratis asteroid field? If it's not, I'd be tempted to add it to that nav :) - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 11:30, 3 April 2008 (EDT)
I need to pop out shopping, but I might sift through a few old sims when I get back. The last mission on Wallace was dealing with an issue with the star. I remember mentioning the possibility of a starquake, can't recall the other suggestions, but would be a nice bit of info for the star page. - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 11:37, 3 April 2008 (EDT)
I also recall the mission cut short by decomm. However, we'd been on DS17 for missions since June (about 9 months, someone blew a hole in the side of the Wallace). Might be some info in the Indy missions, between September and February or whenever the new Indy was commissioned perhaps? Info will be scattered about on all the Ithassa ships but that's where Eratis's most likely looked into. - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 11:43, 3 April 2008 (EDT)
Not sure, but apart from DS17, it hasn't changed much. Might be worth asking Cmdr Riley that one, she'll be able to contact Cpt. Kare'en quite easily to find out :) - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 11:46, 3 April 2008 (EDT)
As Bron Storos? True. - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 11:50, 3 April 2008 (EDT)

Igloo Cluster

Beware the naming of stars in a Cluster. I doubt the star itself is called "Igloo Cluster". Also, IC is a redirect to In Character. You might be able to get ideas from wp:Star cluster. Igloo is probably a remark on the appearence of the region from distance. - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 12:17, 3 April 2008 (EDT)

Sure. The IC-93 bit might pertain to the Igloo Cluster itself actually. wp:Index Catalogue - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 13:02, 3 April 2008 (EDT)


Regarding the Eratis eruption/quake thing I mentioned: Briefing by Lt. Cmdr Devar Senior Staff Thoughts at Briefing [1] [2] [3] - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 13:25, 3 April 2008 (EDT)

Oh, and the DS17 dates don't seem to work. DS17 was commissioned in 2312 yet the Tomed Incident that apparently caused the Federation withdrawl from the Ithassa Region was in 2311? Seems a little bizarre. - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 17:40, 3 April 2008 (EDT)
Further to that: Could be that DS17 was left as a sole outpost given its' study of Eratis (see sims linked above), but why the decommissioning at that time? Possibly a withdrawl of personel due to a military build up for the Cardassian Wars, but they were still at least a decade away. - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 18:06, 3 April 2008 (EDT)
By the way, I've begun a draft rewrite of Ithassa Region at User:Salak/Ithassa. Anything above the line is rewritten. Might be worth comparing to whatever idea you have for the article, see if they can be combined? Also, having looked at the number of links to various redirects to the Battle of DS17, I've moved that article to Battle of Eratis. As such, it now has the Eratis system layout rather than the DS17 one. I've fleshed out Eratis system too, though what I added doesn't really contain anything new to the wiki. I think the observation regarding the Federations presence in the Region is fair to mention. - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 21:23, 3 April 2008 (EDT)

Have added a few things to Talk:Eratis. Also, we haven't had 8 ships since Triumphant was decommed, unless you count Centris. Both Conny & Eagle were listed simultaneously for a while though. - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 12:40, 14 April 2008 (EDT)


Means the edit has not been "patrolled." If the edit was done by a non-admin, it'll have the red ! until an admin reviews it and marks it. You can ignore it -- not really a feature we use. --Wolf /talk page 00:13, 15 April 2008 (EDT)

Couldn't have put it better myself. We do tend to ignore them, don't worry about it. - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 08:46, 15 April 2008 (EDT)

Indy section.

Given I'm on the move to Tiger... Just checking you knew of Template:Indy-A Crew. That might need updating along with the rosters. It's at the footer of all the Indy PC crew pages, except Quinn's as she didn't like it and removed it. Not perfect, but had perhaps an 80% positive reaction. To see how it looks on a page, see the bottom of your character page. Also, the neon on the motto nav bugged me too :) - Lt. SalakUSS Independence-ATalk 17:40, 4 May 2008 (EDT)

Indy registry

Just corrected the registry in the new blurb on the Indy page... The 0 was dropped from the number for the -A - Lt. SalakUSS TigerTalk 11:36, 6 May 2008 (EDT)

Hehe... it's standard practice for the registry to be at the base of a ship nav, just above the edit button. Case you hadn't noticed that, it might help if you forget in future ;) - Lt. SalakUSS TigerTalk 11:54, 6 May 2008 (EDT)

Indy roster

I just noticed that you've made all the other sections of it sortable as well, thought I'd mention a few bugs and fixes. I used the On Leave nav as a testbed, the original testing is at 118Wiki:Sand Box#Collapsable Indy. Pips won't sort unless coded, the ranks will sort alphabetically, not by order and names will sort by first name, not surname. Within the coding, the <span style="display:none">1</span> stuff is defining where in the column something would appear if sorted by that column. Ranks need to be numbered from top down (i.e. Admirals = 1), and if you go into double figures you'll need to add a 0 in front of numbers below 10 (e.g. 01, 02, 03 ... 09, 10, 11) else it will count 1, 10, 11, 2, 3. Adding class="unsortable" to a column's parameters, such as in the final table (last column is ! style="background:#c4bfb8; width:200px;" class="unsortable" |'''Current Post''' ) will mean that although the rest of the table is sortable, that column won't be. Hope that's useful. - Lt. SalakUSS TigerTalk 09:10, 9 May 2008 (EDT)

Oh, plus pips won't sort at all without the hidden code bit. I've not edited it btw. Ronin have a sortable roster, I believe we opted against it on Tiger for "ease of editing" reasons. - Lt. SalakUSS TigerTalk 11:27, 9 May 2008 (EDT)
It is a pig to update, I'll agree. It's a big part of why I hadn't implemented it already. Shame really, would be a nice toy to have if it were easier to recode. - Lt. SalakUSS TigerTalk 11:39, 9 May 2008 (EDT)

Way Corridor System

I assume you didn't mean to file this as a Restricted Species? That's what Category:Restricted is. I'd guess you mean it's classified? Might be worth setting up a new category? - Lt. SalakUSS TigerTalk 14:46, 12 June 2008 (EDT)

I'd have thought Category:Classified would be the logical and obvious option? - Lt. SalakUSS TigerTalk 14:50, 12 June 2008 (EDT)

Deleting articles

To tag an article for deletion, add the delete template {{delete}}. As an admin, you should find a delete button at the top of every article though. - Lt. SalakUSS TigerTalk 07:19, 25 July 2008 (EDT)

Yeah, ran across that. As an admin, we can restore articles too, they aren't totally lost. Slight problem now that some of the planets being moved were simmed in Ithassa and left as red links before recent events. - Lt. SalakUSS TigerTalk 11:48, 25 July 2008 (EDT)

I will rename what ever you want renamed that has been deleted... just let me know... I can and am willing to do so... I thought I was the original creator of the Ga'ter from way back when I joined the USS Triumphant... but I could be wrong... we ran into a character that had no race listed... I gave it a name... I thought it was the Ga'ter... anyway let me know... I will make the changes and do total rewrites of any info refering to the Ithassa Region or the FTU... as I have said... I will never again work on any project... region... area... in any way or form that belongs to someone else... not even with my character... Canreb 12:22, 25 July 2008 (EDT)

(reply to comment on my talk page) Makes sense. Bout to e-mail bout Ga'ter, doing some corroborative research. - Lt. SalakUSS TigerTalk 12:57, 25 July 2008 (EDT)

Ramdii off limits to me

In regards to that I have no idea what you are talking about. I have not touched anything within the Ithassa Region since haveing that conversation. What I have done is to take all the stuff I wrote for that region and reused it after renaming the races something else and placeing it within a region of my own design.

As I said then I will never create or write anything includeing posts as requested for that region ever. All the data that was deleted was done by someone else (Lt. Salak). He were good enough to send me copies of everything I had wrote before resetting everything back the way it was before I started adding things.

In fact if you look on the Canreb user talk page you will see where you spoke to me about this under Vonda & Subsequent Pages and Deleting Pages. Also the whole conversation regarding getting back what I had written and my willingness to change the names of the races and rewrite then as my own creations.

As for the Ramdii. Anything that is currently there should have been returned to it's original format before I touched it originally. I have not even looked at any of the pages for that region as they are off limits to me as ordered. Lt. Salak was nice enough to do all the work of deleteing all the work I had added, even all the original data that I had created that had no referances to anyone else's work in the region.

I even asked him to delete the work I had done while a crewmember of the USS Triumphant which had operated in that region. So all the mission data and new discoveries we made as part of that crew should also have been deleted if I wrote them. Again in keeping with your orders to delete any and all works that I had a hand in within the Ithassa Region.

If for some reason this has not been done I apologize. Since I was still very new to the wiki at that time I left all the deletions to Lt. Salak. I had no idea and still am not sure exactly how a page can be returned to an older version altho Lt. Salak did explain it to me once and I might be able to figure it out on my own now.

However I promised to never touch, write, create or in any way do anything regarding the Ithassa Region and I have kept that promise. I have never returned to or even viewed any of the pages linked to that area since being ordered to stop. Canreb 00:22, 6 July 2009 (EDT)

Also the Prantis... they were only identified as insectoids... I gave them a name and created a system and racial profile... Canreb 17:15, 25 July 2008 (EDT)

I had moved Ma'vil the system... then someone deleted it... can I have it back?? Canreb 18:11, 25 July 2008 (EDT)

I need the Rumaiy race returned... all my work and creation... thanks you... Canreb 18:22, 25 July 2008 (EDT)

Devinon system is my creation... the name of the race is not... but the info on the race is... can I have the info... I will have to delete most of it... but may be able to salvage something... Canreb 18:24, 25 July 2008 (EDT)

I did the racial profile for both the Ramdii and the Oxian... plus both their systems... I will rename the races and the systems... can I have them back... I will also make those changes needed to seperate them from the FTU background I wrote... Canreb 18:28, 25 July 2008 (EDT)

I know I need to change the name for the Ramdii and Oxian race and system... do I need to change it for the Prantis and Ga'ter or are those two mine? Canreb 07:26, 26 July 2008 (EDT)

I have renamed the Ramdii race and the Oxian race... you can now delete the pages for them... I have also done the pages for the Ramd system... they can be deleted... However Ramd III and Oxi I or RAMD and Oxi was missing... the wrong page was restored... it was my original article... I greatly expanded on it... this was the homeworld... I greatly expanded on it... also the city Brahma is still missing... can I have that data back... Canreb 09:54, 27 July 2008 (EDT)

Need the city page for Ya'Th'iss... also most of the info for the Prantis star system is still missing... I moved the 2 sections that had been replaced... still have to do the rest of the system... Canreb 12:58, 27 July 2008 (EDT)
