TrekNews.net

Aside from StarTrek.com and Paramount+, are there other valid sources I can post? I just came across this website called TrekNews.net. Is that valid?--AlexJarrett242 (talk) 17:42, 18 January 2022 (UTC)

They would be a secondary, just as we are. –Gvsualan (talk) 17:43, 18 January 2022 (UTC)

So, does that mean I can use it as a source or not?--AlexJarrett242 (talk) 17:52, 18 January 2022 (UTC)

It's best to use primary sources whenever possible. Use the secondary sources to find the primary sources. -- Sulfur (talk) 18:18, 18 January 2022 (UTC)

Enrique Muñiz 404 RIP?

In 2006 someone renamed the page Enrique Muñiz, a character from DS9, to the same without the tilde on the N, claiming "the actor is credited as Muniz not Muñiz". The actor is credited as F.J. Rio without a character name. In any case, the other characters pronounce his name with the tilde, and the character is Latino, and the N-tilde IS how that name is spelled, regardless of misspellings by Anglos who don't know any better. Let's get the first Spanish-speaking character in Star Trek his proper spelling shall we?

The 2006 rename created a proper redirect. Last year, you Gvsualan (which is why I'm writing on your talkpage, no other special reason) deleted the page with the redirect. Now the link on memory beta is broken. That's how I found it. On memory alpha, at the bottom of the page, there is a link to Enrique Muniz on startrek.com (more Anglos) and another link to Enrique Muñiz on memory beta, where it's spelled correctly, with the tilde. On the memory beta page at the bottom is the link to Enrique Muñiz on memory alpha = 404 deleted page.

The character may be RIP, but the page, the memory alpha page with the correct Enrique Muñiz, should not be. I'm not savvy enough to know how to undelete or change a page's name, but I can certainly correct the text of the page. Let's get this fixed please. Cotswold (talk) 06:54, 19 January 2022 (UTC)

It was spelled Muniz without the tilde in all three scripts as well as the Star Trek Encyclopedia and the DS9 Companion. The only places where it's spelled Muñiz are the novels The Oppressor's Wrong and Rise Like Lions, which is probably why Memory Beta uses that spelling. I've fixed the Memory Beta link, thanks for pointing that out. --NetSpiker (talk) 07:14, 19 January 2022 (UTC)
Also, Muñiz is not the first Latino on Star Trek. There was José I. Mendez and Esteban Rodriguez from the original series. --NetSpiker (talk) 08:22, 19 January 2022 (UTC)

Excuese me

"(how about get your poop in a groop before creating new articles, aight? you're link clearly says "Part 1")"

There is no need to be rude here, and I won't accept being spoken like that. I was simply following the examples of other multipart episode pages. Some don't even have "part 1" and this one had none last I checked. Sometimes I think my presence here is a problem. I'm a Star Trek fan as well. It's also the inspiration for the stories I write in my spare time. Furthermore, I am autistic. So, I am not always going to be perfect.--AlexJarrett242 (talk) 18:38, 24 January 2022 (UTC)

I'm not being a rude, I'm stating a fact, and I won't accept your need to be "first" creating new episode articles every week as a reason to be a reason to be sloppy and create more work for the rest of us, while somehow not being appropriately annoyed by such feats. The reference cited literally says "A Moral Star, Part 1"...in quotations, just like that. –Gvsualan (talk) 18:47, 24 January 2022 (UTC)

I was not trying to be "first" at anything. I don't do things like that. If I were I be not better than the users who threaten Disney Wiki. And I'm not sloppy. I've had six/seven years of experience. I monitor, protect, and delete pages for similar reasons you have here, and watch out for vandals and sockpuppets. And when I'm on other wikis I do my best to respect the rules as every fandom is different. I was simply trying to do my part in helping out on one of my favourite sci-fi franchises. I maybe new here and mess up, but I am doing my best to become apart of your team.--AlexJarrett242 (talk) 19:07, 24 January 2022 (UTC)

I promoise you, Gvsualan, I didn't come here to give you or anyone trouble, I came because I love Star Trek, and because animation is my greatest passion I wanted to be involved in that department. Star Trek in animation is a big deal because its always been live-action. The last time Star Trek was in animation was back in the 70s.--AlexJarrett242 (talk) 19:21, 24 January 2022 (UTC)
