I think the stub label can be removed, yes? --PsiPhi 18:50, 31 October 2007 (CET)

Sure, why not. Valaggar 19:01, 31 October 2007 (CET)

Alphabetical Order

I assume that after fixing the Ur-Quan wikis, the ordering should be adjusted to retain alphabetical order. --Zeracles 22:38, 31 October 2007 (CET)

Actually Zeracles, I've been leaving the ones that say Ur-Quan alone, but directing them to Ur-Quan Kzer-Za. Because of players' familiarity with the Ur-Quan's from SC1 being the "Ur-Quan", if a person put "Ur-Quan" when they are obviously referring to the "Ur-Quan Kzer-Za", especially when listed before the ship name, I figured why mess with it. I'm going to put that as [[Ur-Quan Kzer-Za|Ur-Quan]], if you don't mind, keeping the original writer's intention. --PsiPhi 22:48, 31 October 2007 (CET)
Fair enough :) I never played sc1 so I've always found this just plain imprecise. --Zeracles 23:13, 31 October 2007 (CET)
Well, it is called The Ur-Quan Masters (and not the Kzer-Za Masters; though that would be more correct; the Kohr-Ah are not looking to be anyones master, just their exterminator) for a reason. --PsiPhi 02:46, 1 November 2007 (CET)
I don't think it's that simple - this isn't how I always interpreted the title. The Kohr-Ah can be masters of the galaxy when everyone else is dead. I know your interpretation is the one intended at the beginning of the game (mentioned this way by Commander Hayes), but I thought it was part of the plot development of the game to discover this more sinister side to Ur-Quan dominion. I wonder if anyone else saw it my way. But this is heading in the direction of philosophy. I thought it would be cool to have a page on the philosophy of SC, since it is such a plot-driven game, but I fear that such a page's existence would be even more tenuous than that of the humour page. So I'm not seriously suggesting it, just to pre-empt SvdB in case. This sort of thing might be better suited somewhere else or in Valaggar's wiki (which BTW Val, I think could be an interesting idea), but I haven't thought about it. Just keeping score on that humour page, I don't think we ever resolved that either way. --Zeracles 18:11, 1 November 2007 (CET)
Unfortunately, the interest in my wiki was really small, so I've abandoned it. By the was, as to whether the ship should be named "Ur-Quan Dreadnought" or "[Ur-Quan] Kzer-Za Dreadnought" — the DOS version uses "Ur-Quan Dreadnought", so I think we're better off using that name as well (besides, most in-game characters refer to the Kzer-Za as "Ur-Quan").
