Battlestar Wiki talk:FAQ/Proper BSG nouns

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

While I agree basestars/battlestars shouldn't be capitalized (it's analagous to saying "aircraft carrier" IMO), why shouldn't Viper (or Raptor) be capitalized? Isn't it a model of fighter, like a Tomcat, Eagle, etc? --Redwall 10:47, 2 January 2006 (EST)

Viper and Raptor should be capitalized in all instances as they are proper names. Similarly (bad sp), all ship names are always capitalized, eg Colonial One but not battlestar which is the type of ship. This probably wasn't written the clearest but I've only been up about three minutes and I'm not a morning person. --Talos 11:46, 2 January 2006 (EST)

I'm linking to this image here so that it will not show up on the unused file report. Should the spelling example be removed from the main article this should be removed so that it will show up on the report.
