RunaboutEdit

  • "Deep Space 9 briefly possessed a Starfleet runabout named the USS Yukon, which was named after Canada's Yukon River or Yukon Territory (adjacent to Alaska and British Columbia). (DS9: "Sons of Mogh", "By Inferno's Light") In 2375, the USS Gander (another runabout, named after Gander River in Newfoundland or the town of Gander, which has a long history as a military airbase) was stationed at Deep Space 9. (DS9: "Penumbra")"

Danube class runabout were been named after rivers and not state or cities. If I remember, after loosing a runabout, Kira says that fortunately there are a lot of river on earth. - Philoust123 14:07, 30 April 2006 (UTC)

Good call, it was DS9: "Family Business", when they christened the USS Rubicon. I made a note about that in the page, and tweaked the text a little bit to suit. -- Sulfur 14:16, 30 April 2006 (UTC)

IrrelevantEdit

  • "In DS9: "Family Business", after a new runabout was named the USS Rubicon, Major Kira noted "You know, at the rate we go through runabouts, it's a good thing the Earth has a lot of rivers.""

This is irrelevant and has nothing to do with an article about the nation state of Canada. Why is it here? I move that we should remove it immediately. Objections? --Captain MAJ =/\=|**** 20:31, 22 September 2006 (UTC)

I think the note needs reworking, but helps to enforce that the Runabouts are, indeed, named after two rivers in Canada rather than something like a town or country. - Enzo Aquarius 20:34, 22 September 2006 (UTC)

I still don't think It's needed. The Article clearly states already that the runabouts are named after rivers. It's redundant. This note should be moved to the Danube class page. --Captain MAJ =/\=|**** 20:41, 22 September 2006 (UTC)

I agree. It's more of an overall observation on Danube-class nomenclature than of anything specific to Canada. It just so happens that those two particular Danube-class runabouts happened to be named after Canadian rivers. If the note said that "all Danube-class runabouts were named after Canadian rivers", then it might belong here. -- Renegade54 20:46, 22 September 2006 (UTC)

I'm going to go ahead and move it to the Danube-class page then. --Captain MAJ =/\=|**** 20:49, 22 September 2006 (UTC)

ottawa link Edit

Does anyone have a higher res image of this? File:Cage-screen-16-Northern-Hemisphere.jpg? It would be strange if a map of canada didnt have the capitol on it. --Bp 01:31, 7 October 2006 (UTC)

Oh, it'll have a little star where Ottawa is/should be. But still doesn't mean that the city should be have an article of its own. Having the mention in the first paragraph (or so) I think is sufficient. -- Sulfur 01:43, 7 October 2006 (UTC)
Updated. What you see, is what you get. --Alan del Beccio 01:52, 7 October 2006 (UTC)

Missing ProvincesEdit

In The list of provinces and Territories of Canada some of them were missing so I added Them. The preceding unsigned comment was added by 70.48.58.64 (talk).

I removed them, as they were not referenced in Star Trek. I also converted the referenced ones from a list to a sentence, indicating that there are likely more. Heck, for all we know, Ontario and Quebec may have become part of the United States by the time Canada was first referenced. :) -- Sulfur 23:30, 30 November 2007 (UTC)

Canadian actors in Star Trek Edit

While I wouldn't call this so-much as a "witch hunt", the truth of the matter is, is that some people can't help being a Canadian any more than they can't help being gay. :) But in all seriousness, isn't this (and whatever else we have spread throughout this site along these lines) basically an extension of this? I mean, we listed gay actors, but not straight actors, now we list Canadian actors, but why not American actors? Oh wait...that would be like almost everyone else. Hmm, well I guess I would hate to single anyone out.... --Alan 04:00, 1 July 2008 (UTC)

I agree, and now that Canada Day has passed and TrekMovie.com has the list they need, I think it can be removed. --From Andoria with Love 22:49, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

Done. --Alan 23:50, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

Removed Edit

In "Evolution", Stubbs says, " Once, centuries ago, it was the beloved national pastime of the Americas, Wesley." In light of this statement, it seems unlikely that the London Kings was a baseball team in Europe. So, I have removed the following.Lakenheath72 (talk) 18:08, February 6, 2015 (UTC)

London Kings Edit

During the 21st century, London, Ontario may have been the home of the professional baseball team, the London Kings, who were established in "The Big Goodbye" and "If Wishes Were Horses". It is equally likely the team could have been based out of London, England, United Kingdom.

Not that I'm objecting to the removal of the very tenious possible reference to London, Ontario, but that's incredibly circumstantial evidence you cited. It being a beloved national pastimein the us does not at all preclude it from being played in a respectable but non-"beloved national pastime" capacity elsewhere. After all,that's how it is today. Or Stubbs might have linked the sport to America just because that's the country most associated with it by far, like one might say Judo is a Japanese thing despite being widely practiced almost worldwide. Or he might even have guessed or known Crusher to be American lineage and thus framed things that way after learning Crusher had learned it from his father. And secondly, you remove the whole section despite only objecting to a small aspect of it. -- Capricorn (talk) 21:40, February 6, 2015 (UTC)

There is a difference between the Star Trek universe and the real world. In the ST universe, baseball was played only in the Americas (North, South, and Central).Lakenheath72 (talk) 00:38, February 7, 2015 (UTC)

Er... really? How do we know that? -- sulfur (talk) 11:44, February 7, 2015 (UTC)
From that super-vague quote, apparently. -- Capricorn (talk) 21:23, February 7, 2015 (UTC)
The Japanese love baseball. - Archduk3 05:25, February 8, 2015 (UTC)

Removed Edit

The Mackenzie River runs through a large section of Western Canada. (TOS: "The Cage")

The river's name is illegible on the map.Lakenheath72 (talk) 14:36, February 18, 2015 (UTC)
