Talk:Luxury liner

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

If, as Scifi claims, there is a standard intersun "Luxury Liner", it's inappropriate to call the Rising Star, Olympic Carrier and Cloud 9 part of that class, since they are all wildly different in appearance. I recommend that this page be moved to "Intersun Passenger Cruiser" and the relevant pages de-linked. --Peter Farago 05:46, 7 December 2005 (EST)

Peter, the Rising star, and cloud 9 are luxury liners. This was put on the article to differ them to the passenger class. those two ships are apart of that "Luxury Liner" class. the pan galactic and olympic carrier and gemon liners and organge passenger liner are all part of the "Intersun Passenger Cruiser" or "Passenger Class" of ships, as they all have the same body shape and look.

So there are two types of ship classes:

Luxury Liners (Clould 9 and Rising Star)
Passenger Liners (all of the Intersun Passenger Cruiser Models (Pan Galactic, Olympic Carrier, etc))

Well, you have a good point, but it's pretty clear that whatever this is, it isn't an "Intersun passenger cruiser". How about an explanatory note and links to the other luxury liners of different classes? --Peter Farago 10:18, 1 June 2006 (CDT)

i think we should put 2 different articles together, one Passenger Liners, and the other Luxury Liners, and have links on both pages to their appropriate ships. or even 1 artcle maybe called "Fleet Liners", and note that there are 2 different types of shipliner classes; Passenger and Luxury", or something and have two sub headings on that page with "Passenger Liners" and Luxury Liners" and list the various ships on the sub heading.

I think that this could be the easiest way to do it. becasue as i can quote you: "Well, you have a good point, but it's pretty clear that whatever this is, it isn't an "Intersun passenger cruiser". - Peter Farago, These may not be Intersun Passenger Cruisers, but they are still, certainly NOT luxury liners EITHER. I think Intersun Passenger Cruiser was a global name for the ship, as its was a standard model. But lets have some other views on this? --Lgamser 22:11, 2 June 2006 (CDT)

On Liner Articles

I think the redirect to this page is wrong. Although i might agree on some points that Intersun is a spaceliner like Pan Galactica or Gemon Liners, Moving Intersun Passenger Cruiser should have been moved to Standard Passenger Liner, as it depicts that those ships are PASSENGER LINERS not LUXURY LINERS like cloud 9 or the rising star.

So maybe Intersun started out manufacturing the first model of this ship and had then let the other companies make them. So the Pan Galactic and Olympic Carrier and the Gemon Liners are ALL spaceliners like american airways or qantas, etc. but we still dont kow thw designer of the ship (like our boeing)?

So can someone please move the page to Passenger Liner, or Standard Model Passenger Liner or Standard Passenger Liner. and please whoever has linked this to luxury liner, please use CAPITALS for the start of each word, as you have put Luxury liner, not Luxury Liner (with the capital L on Liner. and just note on the page that Intersun was the first spaceliner to make use this ship from an unknown designer/manufacturer, and other spaceliners had followed Intersun, like Pan Galactic and Gemon Liners being space liners.

So we can conclude:

Intersun is NOT a manufacturer/designer
Intersun, Pan Galactic, Gemon Liners, Olympic Carrier (although name doesnt suggest) are all Space Liners.
The design/manufacturer of this standard ship is unknown (example of this would be Boeing or Airbus to our world)

If everyone can agree on these points, then we should edit Intersun the company to note these points on the page. --Lgamser 21:38, 30 May 2006 (CDT)

I generally agree with you, Lgamser. It's suggested (based on SciFi's site info) that Intersun is both manufacturer and starliner, and other starliners bought ships for themselves from Intersun. If any further distinctions need to be made, I'd recommend that one. As for the naming, we generally avoid using capitals in the full name of some articles unless they are character or proper names. The non-capitalized second name link avoids duplicate pages and is also our convention. As far as the specific names, I am more in favor of genericizing so that we have "Passenger liner" and "Luxury liner." Let's have others chime in before making further changes. --Spencerian 14:23, 31 May 2006 (CDT)
I concur that these appear to be "Passenger liner"s, not "Luxury liner"s (as is emblazoned plainly on "Colonial One", for instance). The first sentence of this article, as it stands, seems somewhat contradictory. (Luxury liners are the standard passenger liner? Nobody flies coach?) --Steelviper 14:42, 31 May 2006 (CDT)
