Vedek Yassim Edit

Should include Vedek Yassim's suicide on here. The preceding unsigned comment was added by 69.142.203.121 (talk).

Added now. -- sulfur 13:38, March 18, 2010 (UTC)

Say what??? Edit

Any clarification on the following? When in 2369 Constable Odo faced the chages of murder, he was hunted down by an angry mob into his security office. Commander Benjamin Sisko tried to calm down the situation and asked what the angry people want to down with Odo. --Obey the Fist!! 13:23, March 18, 2010 (UTC)

"wanted to do with". Also fixed. -- sulfur 13:38, March 18, 2010 (UTC)

Glad to see we turned this into a pretty good looking article now ;)--Obey the Fist!! 14:35, March 18, 2010 (UTC)

Removal of A Man Alone reference? Edit

Well, should we? Sulfur made a good point that this is not notable, just a reference to hanging someone. But that calls into question Janeway's comment as it is just a reference to hanging, perhaps another format change...oh boy, archivist's work is never done. All this damnable metainstability of ours...--Obey the Fist!! 15:11, March 18, 2010 (UTC)

removedEdit

To effect a hanging, the rope was affixed to a tree, beam or other fixed point, and the noose was tightened around the victim's neck. The victim was then pulled up or a support was dropped from underneath him until his entire body weight was being borne by his neck. Death would subsequently result from strangulation or the neck's inability to bear the weight of the victim.

I suspect this isn't from canon (if it is, it needs a reference), and a discussion of how hanging works, well, that's for wikipedia. -- Capricorn (talk) 00:09, March 29, 2015 (UTC)
