I was doing a search for Worf's son and got this page, I think we need a Disambig page.--TOSrules 03:48, 25 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Can they change which it goes to default for how about change the name of the article from Alexander to Alexander the III and then it will have both when you search for it without the need for another page.Kahless 05:09, 25 Jul 2005 (UTC)

I removed the following info:

It has been suggested that Alexander, son of Worf, may have been named after Alexander the Great.

Suggested by whom? In what episode or by which fans or production members? By the way, if it's one of the latter two, this doesn't belong in the main part of the article. --From Andoria with Love 14:47, 15 February 2006 (UTC)

What mystifies me is the claim, made by Akharin the Immortal, that he had been Alexander and knew Socrates personally. Isn't that contradictory? According to real-world history, Alexander was tutored by Aristotle, who was the successor to Plato, ex-protege' of Socrates. Which means, in the STAR TREK universe, that Akharin (as ATG) would have been listening to a second hand-version of Greek philosophy he was already familiar with!

So, at the risk of sounding like a Vulcan-hater, it would have been more logical for the episode's writer(s) to have had Akharin claim to have been Aristotle, 6:59PM

I don't follow you. Does the episode claim that he knew Socrates at the same time he was Alexander? If it doesn't, then there is no contradiction. --OuroborosCobra talk 23:02, 26 April 2007 (UTC)
Well, "Akharin the Immortal" would have never been trained by Aristotle in his youth (as he would have looked like James Daly the entire time). He might've replaced a real Alexander, or made it up, but if he did spend some time "studying" under Aristotle, then he would have been slightly bemused at how history remembered Socrates, but probably already used to it by then.--Tim Thomason 00:04, 27 April 2007 (UTC)

The contradiction would have been Akahrin/Alexander listening to Socratic theory he had already heard, first-hand, decades earlier. However, if he was embellishing his "accomplishments" to Kirk and Company (and he certainly was lying to them about the delay in processing the rytalin), then I'd have to say "yes." Mr. Thomason's hypothesis is probably more on-the-money. ----Carycomic 3:41 PM
