I moved the reference you originally added to the Background section into the main article, as it was an actual reference to the subject. Background information is anything which has to do with the production of the episode, such as (in the case of weapons locker) what was used to make the set piece, or any other information about its use in the production. Actual references go in the main body of the article in the POV of someone in the Trek universe. See MA:POV for more information.--31dot 09:43, June 3, 2010 (UTC)
Re reversion of your edit
Cobra reverted your edit because it was a nitpick, as stated at this policy. This is because it points out an error in the animation of the episode. We made a decision as a community that these kinds of production errors are not noteworthy, unless they were discussed by a member of the cast or crew(in which case there is documentation on it).
If you see such statements elsewhere, feel free to suggest their removal. We haven't gotten them all since this policy was made.--31dot 21:53, June 9, 2010 (UTC)
- Perhaps, as is so often the case with Pluto, it's time to revisit that decision.--Brumagnus 21:54, June 9, 2010 (UTC)
You are certainly welcome to, but the decision was made because many percieved "errors" are actually not, and it was also thought that the episode pages should not be bogged down with nitpicks, as that is not our mission. There are websites that do have that as their mission. You can review the discussion on the policy at Memory Alpha talk:Nitpick.
- Cheerio, thank you for all the information. Much appreciated! --Brumagnus 21:58, June 9, 2010 (UTC)
