Ship templates Edit

Great idea adding the images to the Voyager template like that. --Kevin W. AdmTlk 09:28, 5 January 2007 (UTC)

2250s division colors Edit

I'm thinking of just adding in the necessary blank 2260s sleeves to the 2250s page because they're pretty much the same. However, there are several conflicting items regarding the division colors. What do you think they should be? --Kevin W. AdmTlk 22:59, 15 January 2007 (UTC)

i'd keep the standard gold command, blue sciences, beige ops scheme that is most commonly quoted. -- Captain M.K.B. 02:03, 16 January 2007 (UTC)
Ok. --Kevin W. AdmTlk 02:10, 16 January 2007 (UTC)
personally, i don't think the descriptions of alternate divisions hold a lot of water, since they are based on a couple easily explainable uniform oddities. one is Leslie, who wore a 2250s-style blue uniform while serving as either a security guard or an orderly. in subsequent episodes, he served as both a security guard and orderly on numerous occasions, wearing all three uniform colors. he apparently changed shirts depending on what division he was going into that day. the other presumed blue-shirted security guard was the guy standing next to the turbolift door in "The Cage", which could have numerous explanations -- a dual-purpose crewmember, or a crewmember serving a function other than security who stood next to the door where we assume a security man would. -- Captain M.K.B. 02:33, 16 January 2007 (UTC)
Blue wasn't solidified as the pure sciences color with the first pilot. In fact, it seems like all of the security guards wore blue. If anything, we can just put a lot of notes explaining the division anomalies and such like you did with the 2260s page. --Kevin W. AdmTlk 02:35, 16 January 2007 (UTC)
the word 'security' wasn't even mentioned in the first two pilots, so i'm not sure who "all of the security guards" you're referring to are. Leslie, as i mentioned, was the only guard wearing blue in "Where No Man.." (and there's the possibility he was a medical orderly, as he was in several other TOS eps).. the only two other blueshirts beamed down were the two doctors, and of those with noticable actions, there was also Sulu, who was mentioned to be sciences .. no other security there. and in "The Cage" i didn't notice any other blueshirts besides the nameless turbolift sentry i mentioned doing anything "guardlike" -- there was only the geologist, Spock, and Boyce as i recall doing anything notable. -- 08:34, 16 January 2007 (UTC)
Quoting from the MA article: " Since it is fact that the original "yellow/gold" uniforms were actually lime-green, an alternate view on color coding from 2250s to 2270 could apply as follows:
       Command: Green 
       Operations: Gold & Red 
       Sciences: Blue 
   Security was represented by blue from 2254 to 2266, thereby making blue more of a Supplemental division during that time, not directly related to any activities pertaining to the command or operation of the ship, but rather: protection, health and study. Theoretically all security personnel changed to red in 2266 and re-grouped under Operations, the majority of which also changed to red, which would explain why some true gold shirts remained as a subset of traditional Ops. When solid colored uniforms returned in the 2350s, ops returned to traditional Federation gold and command took red, perhaps inspired by the intervening red-hued tunics. This conceit certainly explains some inconsitencies in the otherwise arbitrary nature of uniform color coding and is true to the reality of the colors intended regardless of their appearance. Specifically, why were the Command dress uniforms green if the duty uniforms were gold while the other divisions matched? Also, beige uniforms could have only existed in the unfortunate uniform design period of 2270 to 2278." --Kevin W. AdmTlk 15:20, 16 January 2007 (UTC)
Yes, I've tried to correct them on that. thank you for bringing it to my attention. however, i stand by everything i've written above. if you've ever watched "The Cage" you can see their uniforms are definitely not pure green, but greenish-gold as i have always tried describing them, and the others are in fact goldish-beige. -- Captain M.K.B. 17:45, 16 January 2007 (UTC)

2278 cadets Edit

I don't think you ever got around to replying to my latest reply on the issue of the 2278 cadet ranks. Can you let me know what you think? --Kevin W. AdmTlk 20:23, 21 January 2007 (UTC)

I've been reviewing the material, and I'm starting to think there are no specific 2270s cadet ranks -- all the red uniform variants are reserved for trainees and student officers -- which are only synonymous with "cadet" under certain (not all) conditions. Saavik was a student officer (she was a cadet who had already been commissioned as lieutenant) and wore an officer uniform with red divisionals. Preston was a student officer (midshipman first class) who wore red divisionals and the insignia of a crewmman.
I definitely think this means we should delete all "cadet admiral" (solid red) insignia (but keep all the academy personnel (red slash) insignia. Also, we should note that the solid red for officers is for provisional/student officers, not necessarily cadets. A solid red with gray slash LCDR would then be a "provisional LCDR" -- possibly, but not completely, explaining Valeris's uniform error in ST6 with a conjectural possibility. She was a LT who was in the process of studying to become a LCDR.
as it is, i dont think there were any insignia that showed "cadet 1st class" or "cadet fourth class" -- so the conclusion should be that cadets would wear insignia that showed they were a student officer or a student who is not yet an officer, but the insignia themselves could not specifically mean they were cadets. -- Captain M.K.B. 01:15, 22 January 2007 (UTC)
I think it would be best if you fixed the pages yourself. You seem to have the whole thing on this specific set figured out, so I think the work would be best done by someone who knows it better. --Kevin W. AdmTlk 01:20, 22 January 2007 (UTC)

DOTF picEdit

Mike, Thx (seriously no sarcasm intended) for touching up/redoing the DOTF pic it looks much nicer now.--Logan MacLeod 18:49, 26 January 2007 (UTC)

Registry template Edit

I just slapped this together, but I don't want to implement it unless you're okay with it, seeing as though you're the one who's doing the registry pages. It'd make your work easier and is easily adaptable. --Kevin W. AdmTlk 06:25, 2 February 2007 (UTC)

The only question i'd have is how do we set it off to include oddball registries like "NX-73811" and the like? -- Captain M.K.B. 05:12, 3 February 2007 (UTC)

2278 rank issues - resolved? Edit

How would you say they look now? --Kevin W. AdmTlk 01:55, 4 March 2007 (UTC)

Recent changes by User:Petr21Edit

I'm tempted to revert but wanted your opinion first. --USS Enterprise Command Pin Sneg AdminTalk 15:37, 25 March 2007 (UTC)

Well the Aakenn class is from the FASA role-playing game. other than that, i'm just not sure what the rest is about -- not English, fer sure.. -- Captain M.K.B.

 :-) Edit

thank you for correction pages USS CATCHON (NX-3400) etc ... thanks my inattention at writing.. otherwise more on my pages -- unsigned

No problem. -- Captain M.K.B. 20:29, 26 March 2007 (UTC)

I'm sorry that am the attach work.. I don't know what is rule for imagery avenues and addition. -- unsigned

I'm not sure what you mean. -- Captain M.K.B. 20:29, 26 March 2007 (UTC)

why are executed this changes back??? and why AMBASSADOR CLASS is in other style??!

I have been in the process of changing all the templates over to a NEW STYLE. You have been changing them back to the OLD STYLE.
Do you have a problem with the NEW STYLE? its been around for quite a while and no one else has suggested changing it back to the OLD STYLE. -- Captain M.K.B. 20:58, 26 March 2007 (UTC)

Indeed in my opinion was original style better and more well-arranged.. in this tabular isn't see whole title boats older style excel and well-arranged but leave it on to you look here with on ABBE CLASS add am craft! give please know whether I have use new style or used! ) me agree with more used without frame ,only list below you Petr21 23:00 hod.

I'm sorry, I can't understand what you are trying to say. -- Captain M.K.B. 21:07, 26 March 2007 (UTC)

ENT era, 23rd century era, post-ENT era pages Edit

Just wondering what these pages are for? They are just sitting blank, unused and alone out there so they are a prime candidate for deletion. – JayLR 16:53, 5 January 2008 (UTC)

Sasoriza is correct, these were part of a parser function i was designing... feel free to delete them, it I ever finish it i would have to add data to them, I won't mind re-creating them if and when there is need. -- Captain MKB 17:43, 5 January 2008 (UTC)
Okay, I'm going to just remove them for now. Thanks for your quick reply. – JayLR 23:48, 5 January 2008 (UTC)

Hey Edit

You still here? --Kevin W. AdmTlk 06:28, 7 June 2008 (UTC)

Occasionally. I'd love to work on my fanfic but I might wait a year or two until the hostility calms down... I'm having a grand time being an admin on two Star Trek wikis.. people respect my decisions.. give me opportunities to express myself... without repercussions... you get the picture, right? -- Captain MKB 07:21, 7 June 2008 (UTC)
There's hostility here? I thought I resolved all of the issues I had with you? --Kevin W. AdmTlk 08:03, 7 June 2008 (UTC)
I consider you and I to be fine.. but I still have problems with how this site is run and I haven't saved up the courage to come back and subject myself to that again. It's kind of sad, I've put all my fanfic on hold because of my bad experiences here. -- Captain MKB 13:43, 7 June 2008 (UTC)
Well, as far as I can tell, we're making an effort to make things better run. You should at least test the waters. --Kevin W. AdmTlk 19:27, 7 June 2008 (UTC)

Reply: Rift FleetEdit

I answered on Tim Pendragons page. Also what you said alpys to Star Trek: New Voyages, not in my eyes, to ST fan stories. HmmI believe that for ST sites like this their should be a way to contact CBS Paramount for people like me to use instead of getting lost on their website. Rift Fleet 18:43, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

Hey, we all have the right to be completely wrong sometimes.
Listen, you asked, and I answered -- we do have a clear copyright notice that you are supposed to read before you post anything -- people who are actual adults, and people who are actual lawyers have helped to write these. If you ignore them, how else can we explain this to you? -- Captain MKB 22:51, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

Request Edit

Hey, long time no talk. Would you be willing to design some rank images for me? --Kevin W.Talk to me 19:43, December 6, 2009 (UTC)

Hey Kev, what's up?
I've been fairly busy on ranks, i'm in the middle of a couple sets right now. any chance it's something i've already done? -- Captain MKB 19:44, December 6, 2009 (UTC)
Unfortunately, it's not, but I'm in no hurry to see it done, so if you have to put it on your to-do list, that's fine with me. Can I email you the specifics?
Also, great job on the 2350 ranks. --Kevin W.Talk to me 20:20, December 6, 2009 (UTC)
Thank you -- i still need to finish the FASA 2350s enlisted sleeves over on Memory Beta. I've been working on TOS and the new movie's reality.
Yeah, do you have my email through the site? -- Captain MKB 20:36, December 6, 2009 (UTC)
I don't. --Kevin W.Talk to me 20:38, December 6, 2009 (UTC)
It's captainmike47 and that's -- Captain MKB 20:40, December 6, 2009 (UTC)
Ok, I sent it. Get to it whenever you get the chance. It's a replacement for the Remington sleeve stripes I did which, compared to the other rank images on here, are sorely lacking in graphical quality, so it's not exactly an immediate necessity. My images can be placeholders until you're finished. --Kevin W.Talk to me 20:53, December 6, 2009 (UTC)
Just out of curiosity (and I won't hold you to it) can you give me an estimated time frame for when the pics might be done? --Kevin W.Talk to me 04:35, December 7, 2009 (UTC)

I'm almost through the officer cuffs and i could probably take on the enlisted stuff over the next 5 days or so. Should I just start uploading them here as they are completed? -- Captain MKB 02:43, December 9, 2009 (UTC)

Can you send me what you've got first? My email address is --Kevin W.Talk to me 02:52, December 9, 2009 (UTC)
Ok, so it turns out that Kuro decided to do my ranks, so you don't have to. I do have another request for you. Can you do the early TNG provisional officer ranks based on the insignia that Kosinski wore? All you'd have to do is design new pips. --Kevin W.Talk to me 23:03, December 9, 2009 (UTC)
Oh, OK.. I have the officer sleeve set here, i'll hang on to it. I'm afraid I haven't brushed up on Kosinski except through VHS caps, I might need to get a digital copy to see exactly what kind of appearance they had. The last time I examined the VHS of the episode, but the contrast was such that I couldn't get a clear look at them. -- Captain MKB 00:57, December 10, 2009 (UTC)
Have you tried Trekcore? --Kevin W.Talk to me 01:06, December 10, 2009 (UTC)

Other rank questions Edit

I hope you don't mind, but I've gone ahead and uploaded your 2250s ranks from the Non-Canon wiki. Also, have you considered taking a crack at the ENT sleeve stripes? I've got a lot of reference material that you could use. --Kevin W.Talk to me 02:19, December 8, 2009 (UTC)

I had gotten started but got confused by the variables. I actually have a template, but the correct increases in size/number started to elude me and i put it on hold for a while. -- Captain MKB 02:43, December 9, 2009 (UTC)
Same as the Remington ranks. Can I see what you've done so far? --Kevin W.Talk to me 02:52, December 9, 2009 (UTC)
Just go ahead and send whatever you've got to my email address. I'll probably have some suggestions based on what you send. --Kevin W.Talk to me 07:25, December 10, 2009 (UTC)

More rank questions Edit

Do you have the other admiral ranks for the Trek XI set? I'd like to upload them here for the time being. Also, can you send me whatever ENT stuff you have? --Kevin W.Talk to me 03:21, January 5, 2010 (UTC)

I have a .PSD file for STXI ranks, but i've never saved any .PNGs except for what's available on Memory Beta, so I've nothing ready to upload. It would take time to make any other files.
I also have a .PSD of ENT sleeves, but I never finished taking time to render the stripe locations, so i've obviously never taken the time to make any .PNGs for uploading. Sorry.
If you wanted Remington sleeves, I spent a bunch of time working on those! -- Captain MKB 15:01, January 5, 2010 (UTC)
Well, I've already got the Remington sleeves taken care of thanks to Kuro. Could you send me the PSDs? I'd like to at least take a look at them. --Kevin W.Talk to me 19:51, January 5, 2010 (UTC)
Unfortunately I don't have great access to email when i'm at the computer that my Photoshop files and programs are on. You might've realized this when it took me so long to email you the Remington rank images I did, and you found someone else to do it faster, even though I had spent several hours working on them. And the source files are mine, sorry. -- Captain MKB 00:33, January 6, 2010 (UTC)
Ok, thanks anyway. Furthermore, there's no need to get so testy. I admit I should have said something to you about the Remington ranks, and for that, I am really sorry. It was a mistake to not inform you. Secondly, it's not as if I want to modify the work you've done. I lack a good enough image program to modify those kinds of files without screwing them up, and I lack the skills as well. I just wanted to look at them to see what you've come up with. --Kevin W.Talk to me 00:35, January 6, 2010 (UTC)

Rank templates Edit

I'm having some trouble with the rank navigation templates. I've noticed that on several of them (Template:Bajoran ranks, Template:MACO ranks, Template:UESPA ranks, Template:Bajoran ranks and Template:Vulcan ranks) the final rank name is pushed to the top of the table even though its line in the template is coded no differently from other lines. Would you mind taking a look and seeing if you can do anything to fix it? --Kevin W.Talk to me 21:15, January 8, 2010 (UTC)

2350s ranks Edit

I hope you don't mind that I uploaded the rest of your 2350s admiral ranks. --Kevin W.Talk to me 04:19, January 31, 2010 (UTC)
