Reverted edits Edit
I was the one who reverted the edits because I wasn't sure what was going on with the formatting, and the edits were made by an anonymous editor so I didn't have a good way to enter into a discussion about the edits. The issues is that italics in in-universe articles, other than for emphasis on a word or two here and there, have specific uses and meanings. They're used to indicate quoted speech, in which case the text should open and close with quotation marks, and when used for large sections of unquoted text, italicized text indicates events that took place in an alternate universe of some type. Neither of these cases apply here, and I wasn't comfortable with trying to sort things out, so I reverted to the previous revision. If you can fix the formatting, everything should be pretty good. One other thing to mention: when adding a suffix to a wikilink, there's no need use a piped link, as in [[Vulcan|Vulcans]]. The proper (and preferred) way to create this type of link is [[Vulcan]]s; the suffix gets appended to the link in a transparent manner. Thanks! -- Renegade54 (talk) 14:02, March 10, 2015 (UTC)
Please do not remove people from credits. Those credits were shown in the episode whether or not the actor and character made an appearance. As such, they must remain there. -- sulfur (talk) 01:02, August 4, 2015 (UTC)
