STO Edit

There's a nice Andrew Probert sketch here for Star Trek Online of the "aquatic lab", presumably Cetacean ops. I'm not sure what the usage policy is, but it would be nice for a background section of this article. -- StAkAr Karnak 14:10, 27 December 2006 (UTC)

Star Trek IV reference? Edit

Cetaceans are aquatic mammals such as dolphin, porpoises and whales. Given that Star Trek IV was about travelling through time to get whales, it seems like "Cetacean Ops" is a pretty clear reference to the film. 09:43, February 21, 2013 (UTC)

While it might be likely, such a claim still needs documentation to be in the article. 31dot (talk) 11:10, February 21, 2013 (UTC)

Station Ops Edit

The subtitles on both Netflix and Amazon as well Chakoteya's transcript refer to this as "Station Ops," which makes a lot more sense. Propose move to "Station Ops," and/or simply delete or redirect to "operations station." ProfessorTofty (talk) 06:52, September 14, 2019 (UTC)

Subtitles are often inaccurate, as they are not typically written by people associated with the production. There is background material such as the Star Trek: The Next Generation USS Enterprise NCC-1701-D Blueprints which support the existence of such a facility. 31dot (talk) 07:56, September 14, 2019 (UTC)

Hmm, okay. It still seems like maybe we shouldn't have it if we can't be sure that we actually have anything that directly refers to it as "Cetacean Ops." But after listening carefully, I'll agree that it does rather sound like the guy could actually be saying that in the announcement. ProfessorTofty (talk) 13:03, September 14, 2019 (UTC)

The issue with the subtitles should still be noted in the bg. - Archduk3 13:49, September 14, 2019 (UTC)
Done, with the added note that the Blu-ray release subtitles also refer to it as "station Ops." ProfessorTofty (talk) 00:16, October 11, 2019 (UTC)
