Hodin was not the Prime Minster, when he refers to the Prime Minster he does so in the third person "Our Prime Minster learned of you during our negotiations" --TOSrules 03:15, 5 Jun 2005 (UTC)
Gideon must be a warp capable civilization. Otherwise it would not be eligible for Federation membership. 18.104.22.168 00:13, 6 Jun 2005 (UTC)
- This is not necessarily true -- nor, to my knowledge, has it has ever been stated as a requirement. At most, I would suspect that they only need to reach a certain level of technology, as I am sure, not all planets wish to travel the stars, and therefore divert their resources to other technologies, or are simply xenophobic. There have been several Federation worlds, or Federation hopefuls that appear to not have warp-driven vessels in their fleets, yet they are considered. Assuming that they have warp drive because they are eligible for Federation membership, means you are also assuming that Federation membership requires warp drive. One assumption is enough, but having a second assumption seems to question the legitamacy of the first. --Gvsualan 00:43, 6 Jun 2005 (UTC)
- I believe the warp requirement is canon as per First Contact or something like that. Can someone provide a reference? Actually Star Trek can be a little inconsistent with prime directive and Federation entry requirements so its a hard call, but I do believe Warp drive is stated as the benchmark technology as opposed to things like the transporter which are seen as much more secondary. Just my thoughts. Federation 03:51, 6 Jun 2005 (UTC)
Moved from articleEdit
This link was listed in the "External links" section. It was considered spam by the wikicities' spam detection bot, and while I reverted that chenge yesterday, I'm not sure if we really need this in the article. There doesn't seem to be any valid information that isn't already part of the article (or could simply be added) and I think we don't want to become a website directory linking to each and every fan site that covers a topic. -- Cid Highwind 11:36, 20 January 2006 (UTC)
- As the planet Gideon has at least one ambassador, we can assume that they make frequent contact with interstellar life, so the 'massive overpopulation' concept is highly improbable. It's much more likely that Gideon would suffer a massive, population-destroying plague within the first few generations of interstellar contact; in an entirely germ-free environment, Gideonite biology and technology would not have evolved the capability to fight any kind of viral or germ-based infection.
This is all just speculation.– Cleanse 10:06, 14 April 2009 (UTC)
