Talk:The Twelve Colonies of Man

From Battlestar Wiki, the free, open content Battlestar Galactica encyclopedia and episode guide

Can it be confirmed that Scorpia's analog is Scorpion? My understanding (and I'm still looking for the info myself) is that it's Scorpinon.--Mitsukai 13:52, 26 January 2006 (EST)

If you can find some good canonical references, feel free to hack and slash at this. It's a pretty sad little article for as often it gets linked to. All of the "referenced" information looks ok, but I don't know the source of the colony names for the article. --Steelviper 14:19, 26 January 2006 (EST)

Non-canon information

I'm against the referencing of The Official Battlestar Galactica Scrapbook in this article. The names shown are so clearly off from what is canonical that there is certainly some ancient fanwanking at work. I don't mind moving the reference to the book's article itself, but mixing it here is nothing but trouble. Making the matter worse is that "official" in those days may or may not have been so. We need a source that verifies that source or we need to remove this reference. --Spencerian 07:52, 23 April 2007 (CDT)

Beat me to it... ;-) -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate 08:35, 23 April 2007 (CDT)
I've deleted the reference and moved it to the book article, with a caveat. --Spencerian 08:47, 23 April 2007 (CDT)

Taurus/Taura

User:Danage changed the name of Taurus to Taura. Do we have any evidence as to which is correct? --Catrope(Talk to me or e-mail me) 15:55, 2 October 2007 (CDT)

Hmm... I'll have to review "Saga of a Star World" to be sure. -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate - Sanctuary Wiki — New 16:09, 2 October 2007 (CDT)

Incorrect Reference

"This raspy accent would be revisited in the Re-imagined Series, where natives of Aerelon are depicted with Irish sounding accents as well."

The dialect that Baltar uses is of Northern England origin, principally the Yorkshire area one. It isn't at all Irish sounding. Just thought I'd mention this rather than delete/alter the reference, to allow debate. --Sixu 02:11, 7 October 2007 (CDT)

Right. There was some confusion about this origin, but it's now settled as Yorkshire on the relevant pages. But I think the note can be salvaged by rewording... --Serenity 05:13, 7 October 2007 (CDT)

Thanks buddy --Sixu 07:06, 7 October 2007 (CDT)
