Would it be important to note that (so far) all the shuttles are named for places in California, the ship is named after a city in California, that the Captain also has a California flag in her Ready Room, all coming to the fact the class is named California? --Tuskin38 (talk) 22:00, August 7, 2020 (UTC)
Adding the protagonists
In the interests of being easier to navigate, could we add the four protagonists under "USS Cerritos personnel"? I realize we wouldn't normally do that for the likes of reoccurring guest stars, but Lower Decks isn't a normal Star Trek show. --DaWooster (talk) 16:13, August 9, 2020 (UTC)
Avoiding Romulan/Borg conflict section
Uh, are opening credits considered canon? If we're including this here we will have to do that with every ship that appears in an opening sequence in the other series...--Tuskin38 (talk) 22:36, August 24, 2020 (UTC)
- Opening credits are "canon," and we already do unless we missed something. - Archduk3 00:00, August 25, 2020 (UTC)
- See OV-165 and SS Emmette. Most opening credits are either non-specific ("the Enterprise warps past a planet!") or figurative (the Picard titles; we’re not saying that Jean-Luc Picard was assembled from fragments of the remains of the planet Romulus). But when there are more specific events that we can treat as a representation of something literal, we do. —Josiah Rowe (talk) 14:29, August 25, 2020 (UTC)
- No problem. Happens to us all — to me on a daily basis! —Josiah Rowe (talk) 16:13, August 25, 2020 (UTC)
- ...although upon reflection, I suppose that we should probably also note the undated events in which the Cerritos was pulled into the accretion disk of a black hole, had a massive firefly-like creature attach itself to its warp nacelles, and so forth.
- To that end, does anybody know exactly what the ice-like structure the Cerritos bumps into in the opening credits is? —Josiah Rowe (talk) 18:12, August 25, 2020 (UTC)
- I'm surprisingly coming up with very little on what that ice is called. It resembles a penitente, but those typically involve snow. Ice stalagmites are a thing, except this isn't a cave setting. Another is an ice spike, but that doesn't really fit either. I'm coming to the conclusion that the ice the Cerritos collided with isn't a natural occurrence on Earth. If we were to go instead by mountain formations I'd lean to call it an ice spire.--DaWooster (talk) 02:40, August 26, 2020 (UTC)
Should the “early encounters” section be something like “undated encounters”?
- That's possibly a fair point. We assumed that the "events" in the title sequence must have occurred before "Second Contact", but I'm not sure whether that's necessarily so. The reworking of the titles for Season 2 with the new Cerritos model complicates things too: do we assume that the same events happened twice (as we do with the Borg/Romulan battle with the added Pakled and Klingon ships), or is it more like the situation with TOS and TOS-R, with the same event being depicted in more "accurate" detail? —Josiah Rowe (talk) 03:10, 6 October 2021 (UTC)
