Luta is not mentioned in the episode and only appears in the script, as the complete scene where she is mentioned by Miles O'Brien was cut or not filmed at all, so the article should be deleted. --Jörg 14:23, 27 October 2006 (UTC)
- Delete. --Jörg 14:23, 27 October 2006 (UTC)
- Delete, however a mention in the background section of the episode may suffice. - Enzo Aquarius 14:26, 27 October 2006 (UTC)
- Comment. I'm not sure on this one. If the scene was only cut, we seem to like keeping materials on that, since it may have only been "cut for time" or something. I happen to disagree with that, but that seems to be the policy, (see Martin Madden). So, was this scene cut, and therefore would be a keep, or was this scene never filmed, and therefore a delete? --OuroborosCobra talk 14:44, 27 October 2006 (UTC)
- Comment: We do not know if the scene was filmed and then cut for time reasons or was simply never filmed at all. If you take a look at the TNG and DS9 scripts that are available online, some seem to be really early versions, including slightly different plots and additional characters, so they are not always reliable (only when it comes to spelling, they come in handy). We keep Martin Madden because he was included in a deleted scene available as a special feature on DVDs, so we know for sure, that his scenes were filmed, as we have visual evidence. In the case of carnat and Luta, we have no clue. Besides, the USS Garuda article was deleted for the same reason - no footage exists, never mentioned in the episode - deleted. --Jörg 14:51, 27 October 2006 (UTC)
