Removed Speculation Edit
- Because of the limited number of light sources in space, most kinds of starships are equipped with running lights, which either highlight sections of the hull or act as location markers of various blinking patterns and colors, designed to provide a starship's location when visual sighting is the only means available.
re: speculation and/or no citation(s).
Also, its kind of a borderline nitpick.--Hribar 01:56, 27 May 2009 (UTC)
Removed Irrelevant Information Edit
- A Federation starship's running lights can also be used to identify the vessel's status in situations that preclude the beaming over of an away team, such as quarantine. (TNG: "Unnatural Selection")
re: not relevant to the article.
I don't think a discussion about running lights is appropriate for an article on light.--Hribar 02:03, 27 May 2009 (UTC)
Removed "Sources of Light" section Edit
This section seems kind of nitpickish to me. However, it may be better served if some exotic light sources unique to Star Trek were listed.--Hribar 02:31, 27 May 2009 (UTC)
