Star Trek Online Wiki


Hi, welcome to Star Trek Online Wiki! Thanks for your edit to the Stop the Signal page.

Please leave a message on my talk page if I can help with anything! -- JoePlay (Talk) 2010-01-17T02:20:02


This is Nic from Wikia Gaming, how would you feel about becoming an admin for this Wiki? Since there is no current active admin and you seem to be really into the game and have already shown a strong effort to contribute to this Wiki, you seem like you'd make a good admin. If you are interested in this, just let me know.

Thanks for the offer, but currently I'm in an unfortunate situation were I have a lot of free time on my hands. I've also participated in the Fallout, Dragonage, & PotBS wikia projects in the past & I know how helpful these can be. Unfortunately I'm not sure how much time I'll have in the future. --Pteague 00:13, January 19, 2010 (UTC)
Not a problem at all, I perfectly understand that lack of having free time. Well anyway, thanks for all the contributions you have been making. They help alot. - Wagnike2 23:30, January 19, 2010 (UTC)


Hey there, about the templates.

No I actually dont. I am new to Wikia and I simply used an existing template for those stats and edited it to suit my needs. Its the prime way that I learn how to do stuff.

Maybe you could look up a page of which you like the template and simply edit it from there? --Tommygunner70 12:24pm, January 19, 2010 (CET)

Sector Category

I think it would be best to keep it like it is for now, since like you said the other way could possibly make things way too crowded. - Wagnike2 00:36, January 25, 2010 (UTC)

Admin rights

Hi Pteague; thanks for all your hard work on this wiki. I know that you said above that your free time might be reduced in the future, which is great; real life is generally more important than wikis. :)

However, as the most active STO Wiki user, and an experienced admin on other wikis, I'd like to give you admin and bureaucrat rights for the time being -- the game will be widely launched shortly and we expect a lot more visitors to this wiki in the near future.

Even if you don't have the time to monitor the site frequently yourself, I think you are well-placed to pick out other good users who might benefit from admin tools; you may use Special:UserRights to give them access.

We really appreciate your hard work and enthusiasm, and we look forward to seeing this wiki grow in size and popularity! Thanks — Catherine (talk) 20:51, January 28, 2010 (UTC)

  • Congrats on your new adminship! - Wagnike2 00:33, January 29, 2010 (UTC)


Hi! Could you please tell me your ingame name and handle so i can add you? Thank you! Metalbaswee 16:01, January 31, 2010 (UTC)

EDIT: Nvm, found it already! Metalbaswee 16:03, January 31, 2010 (UTC)


Hi, I would like to ask you if you could make some templates for weapons and ship parts and npc's? that way i can enter all the information way faster. I really don't know how to make them. thnx already! Metalbaswee 16:21, February 2, 2010 (UTC)

I'd be happy to build the templates, but I'm not quite sure how to structure it. If you had a table layout or something I could use as an example to build off of that would be helpful. Another thing I was thinking about was making the effects their own templates (or even page, you can include another page as a template in another)... I.e. a template or page (to be used as a template) for Shield Recharge I that you could then include anywhere you need the description for Shield Recharge I. --Pteague 04:37, February 3, 2010 (UTC)
  • That sounds awesome! it kinda reminds me of WOWwiki's item's table. I'm currently out of the game due to billing issues, my game card arrives somewhere friday.I'm trying to do anything i can without being in the game. I will get the table layout for you somewhere this friday or saturday. I'm primarily gonna focus on getting all the items/weapons on the wiki. Metalbaswee 17:04, February 3, 2010 (UTC)

I got you the table layout for the common ground weapons:



Setting 1



Setting 2



And for all other common items( shield charges, hypo's etc)




I really hope you can get it something like the wowwiki style. That would be great, Metalbaswee 15:07, February 4, 2010 (UTC)

Not sure if you saw it, but I got a template added for weapons. You can see an example of how to use it with the page you put up the other day Phaser Compression Pistol Mk I. --Pteague 11:33, February 10, 2010 (UTC)

Wiki Noob

Hi Pteague,

I'm new to the whole wiki thing. Not even sure if I'm doing this right. As you might have seen I've added a page on bugged missions.

I think this is an important addition to the wiki especially at STO's early existance. If I've made a mistake in the format or anything please let me know so that I can amend and learn.



Category Cleanup

I'd go ahead and go with Category:Ships, since more pages are using it by a good number than the Starships category. - Wagnike2 15:14, February 11, 2010 (UTC)

Vandaled Page

I'm not sure if this page has been vandalized or not, it was created by the last user that I blocked and the rest of his edits were vandalism, but this page seems like it could be partly true and since I don't play the game I figured I'd point it out to you and let you take of it.

I had to undo an edit by an unregistered contributor with IP of, he deleted an image and messed up the main content of Star Trek Online Wiki article The Valader 04:04, February 17, 2010 (UTC)

Can you comment on this?

Hi, I brought up an issue that you may want to look at. Clicky --FFN 11:18, February 16, 2010 (UTC)

Template permission

Hi there, I would like to add a template that indicates which articles need work, content images etc... if you allow me to, this will attract more fans of Star Trek and wiki editors who love subject to complete, seeing that work is needed, what do you think, you don't have to do it, I'll do it. The Valader 18:04, February 16, 2010 (UTC)

Well actually I was thinking to add several maintenance templates to the wiki The Valader 18:10, February 16, 2010 (UTC)

Ok, you can check the Templates wiki, this will certainly do the job instead of making, I will add labeling templates and others, thanks for the go The Valader 22:27, February 16, 2010 (UTC)

Ok, templates I want to add need to have ".css" code in MediaWiki:Common in order to the wiki to read correctly the code I'm inserting, but the article listed above is blocked for current users, I will post the code below for you to insert it.

/* === Template:Ambox designs === */
 /* Ambox design */
 .ambox {
  font-size: 95%;
  width: 80%; 
  margin: 0 auto;
  border: 1px #AAA solid;
  border-left: 10px solid #228b22;
  border-collapse: collapse;
  background-color: #EEE;
 /* Ambox colours */
 .ambox-blue {
  border-left: 10px solid #1e90ff;       /* Blue (notice) */
 .ambox-red {
  border-left: 10px solid #b22222;       /* Red (delete/serious) */
 .ambox-orange {
  border-left: 10px solid #f28500;       /* Orange (content) */
 .ambox-yellow {
  border-left: 10px solid #f4c430;       /* Yellow (style) */
 .ambox-purple {
  border-left: 10px solid #9932cc;       /* Purple (merge) */
 .ambox-gray {
  border-left: 10px solid #bba;          /* Gray (protection) */
 .ambox-green {
  border-left: 10px solid #228b22;       /* Green */
 /* Ambox small text */
 .ambox-smalltext {
  font-size: smaller;
 /* Ambox image */
 .ambox-image {                          /* The left image cell */
  width: 60px; 
  padding: 2px 0px 2px 0.5em;            /* 0.5em left, 0px right */
  text-align: center; 
 @media print { .ambox { display: none; } } /* no ambox when printing */

This code will allow us to insert the template for Article maintenance I want to add, thanks in advance The Valader 22:56, February 16, 2010 (UTC)

New Templates

I have added some templates called "Polling templates" with these the voting will be easier, for example:

You marked a page for deletion, you write the reasons on the talk page, people like this will be able to "vote" and like this it will be easier for you, the admin, to check how many support and how many oppose for you to have the final word, it should be like this:

I marked this page for deletion because Its not important content for the wiki

Plus symbol.png Support:Yes you're right, reasons...
50px-Symbol oppose vote.png Oppose: I don't think we should delete this, reasons...
20050618095400!Symbol neutral vote.png Neutral: Don't include me, I don't really know about this subject

I think you have already seen this on other wikis, this will make attractive the wiki, and enhance the community rights.

The Valader 23:37, February 16, 2010 (UTC)

I added the {{work}} template, so we and users could mark pages that are under development, the pages will be marked automatically to the [[Category:Articles requiring work|Articles requiring work]] category, so editors can see in what can they help.

If you want to make other Labeling/marking templates, use the Ambox template I added.

By the way thanks for the permissions, Live long and prosper The Valader 19:39, February 17, 2010 (UTC)

Ship images

Hi I'm new to this,

I've added images for all of the ship types for Lieutenant commander, and those for the Commander level science vessels. However I do not know how to put them in the info window pane on the right hand side of the article. Is it reserved? Carriath 17:34, February 19, 2010 (UTC)

If you need help

I have some experience on these wikis, and if you ever need any help just ask me, you probably wont, and in the future I may ask you for help, but just in case.

One more thing I almost forgot, I don't own this game YET but I was in the beta from the start. Riley.Konner 09:02, February 22, 2010 (UT)

New featured Article

Hey, just a suggestion. Do you think it's about time to maybe switch up the featured article? Cruisers has been featured since the game has been out for awhile. Any other good article candidates that should be featured? - Wagnike2 01:45, February 24, 2010 (UTC)

What about the United Federation of Planets? An article everyone knows about and has enough content to be featured. Riley.Konner 21:11, February 24, 2010 (UTC)
Ok, I changed the featured article to the UFP page although honestly I would have preferred a page with better grammar/spelling on it. I cleaned up the text in the document up to a point and used that as the text on the front page. I'm still not quite sure what was meant by "...their research in science allows them to by pass technology..." - it allows them to bypass technology? So technology is no longer relevant? --Pteague 22:56, February 24, 2010 (UTC)

Species Category

Well, my reason for moving all species pages, is that we could separate the species that are not related at all to the game from those of STO, as you can see I didin't changed the special borg article, still I think that important species or antagonists should not be classified, I mean that's how I did in Spore Wiki, if don't like I can change again into its normal state.

Now with the other page of Species 8472, it was created by an user. but I'll delete it, and I'm too was like: "Why we have a Kirk page in here??" since the STO timeline is 30 years after Nemesis movie, surely not necessary to add it.

The Valader 00:01, February 25, 2010 (UTC)

I've been trying to follow a combination of (it was the most detailed wiki I came across for potbs) and the categorization of things posted over at As well as attempting to keep things named the same way as they are in the game. I just changed a bunch of the links on the front page (that I've been completely ignoring) to point to the category pages instead of the very incomplete static list pages that nobody has been keeping up to date... which I think should help reduce some of the duplication of pages as long as people tag stuff with the correct category...
As has the Borg placed in their Species category and in most conversations I've had with Trekkies that acknowledge the Borgs existence (I know a Trekkie that only acknowledges TOS & the movies with TOS characters as cannon) seem to refer to the Borg as a race or species in their own right. As for the renaming of pages, I'm not sure we should have to many confusion points with the species. The only thing I've had to "fix" is the fact that there is a difference between the Klingons as a species and the Klingon Empire (the game kind of confuses the issue when it says "Make a Klingon Character" when it should be "Make a Klingon Empire Character" or some such).
Rather than just deleting the new ((No Longer Exists)) page I think it needs to be merged with the pre-existing page as the pre-existing page is missing the new information. Honestly the whole reason this came up is I was planning to move the page to be "Species 8472 (Undine)" and as I've been navigating around in some instances by simply changing the URL I ended up at the old location only to see a completely different page.
I'm pointing at the newly created page rather than my URL modification when I say this: to decrease new user confusion (at least at this point) I think we need to drop the "Species:" prefix. When we end up with more users and if they are also interested in going this direction then I don't have a problem adding the prefix. In the meantime, if we run into issues we should probably then proceed with what I've seen in various wiki's for disambiguation. Which I've actually already ran into the other day - Rapier is a ship and it's also a mission (Rapier (mission)). --Pteague 00:34, February 25, 2010 (UTC)

Wiki Background

I do not intend on changing the background, its just for another wiki, but do you actually know how to change backgrounds? The Valader 22:45, February 25, 2010 (UTC)

Adminship for Profetius

Hey Pteague, I just want to suggest that you cancel my rights for sysop, and increase those of Profetius, since he has been helping more than I am, and I'm not being really active, but perhaps when the wiki grow a little more, and you need more sysops, then you know who to call, I'm still going to be helping in other things I see, but that I think I can do it as rollback or normal user.

Thank you again The Valader 16:09, March 3, 2010 (UTC)

Don't have to care about choosing featured articles

Greetings Pteague

After some hard work I managed to return here for adding some extra coding, and know I made the main page to browse random articles, images and videos to put them on the featured headings, this will be update every time you click on the main page of the wiki, one less thing to care about. (talk) VofValar 05:30, March 26, 2010 (UTC)

I have Protected Main page

Recently, Vandals have been looking for wikis to do malicious edits, for that, I have protected the page that most readers see entering this site, the main page, administrators and featured users can access it, but unregistered users and new users on the wiki cannot, as also there are vandals that are registered and are looking for wikis where they have not been blocked. (talk) VofValar 05:35, March 26, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks --Pteague 20:13, April 4, 2010 (UTC)

Ship's Weapons

Hi, I have toying ith the idea of reformatting all the ships weapons to mimic the template shown for torpedoes, which I find outstanding. I was thinking of making separate sections for each type of beam weapon for now - Phasers, Disrupters, Plasmas - that would show the models (Base to X) with their basic stats. Enhancements for rare etc. items would not need to be there, just the basics. Information would be the level, output in damage, DPS, energy consuption and attack arc. An example is shown below with plug values for illustration.

Phaser Beam Array

These weapons may be equipped on all vessel types.

Grade Basic Lvl I LvL II LvL III Lvl IV Lvl V Lvl VI Lvl VII Lvl VIII Lvl IX Lvl X
Graphic Graphic Graphic Graphic Graphic Graphic Graphic Graphic Graphic Graphic Graphic
Attack Arc 250d
Damage 134
DPS 40
Energy 1500

Dual Phaser Beam Array

These weapons may be equipped on all vessel types.


Basic Lvl I LvL II LvL III Lvl IV Lvl V Lvl VI Lvl VII Lvl VIII Lvl IX Lvl X
Graphic Graphic Graphic Graphic Graphic Graphic Graphic Graphic Graphic Graphic Graphic
Attack Arc 90d
Damage 145
DPS 65
Energy 1800

As an after thought, I need to add Rank and maybe cost and where they can be acquired if you think that is important. So far not all these can be found in any one place and there are gaps (e.g., Lvl 4 and 6 phasers at one starbase but not Lvl 5 and maybe only Lvl 4 dual phasers). What do you think? PCHunter 00:07, April 8, 2010 (UTC)

Sounds good --Pteague 02:21, April 8, 2010 (UTC)

Please check out new additions on Phaser Ship Weapons. PCHunter 06:47, April 20, 2010 (UTC)

New Phaser Ship Weapons Page

Hey dude, check it out and give me your comments. The images are really challenging to get and I cheated a bit. I also am not very good at creating the links and structure so you might just do what looks best. Thanks... PCHunter 18:49, April 20, 2010 (UTC)

Hi. I'm rather new to this Wiki, but I'm not new to Wiki. I've edited and added quite a few articles on other Wiki's before I found this page. While exploring, I found a lot of blank pages and stubby articles. I usually have a lot of time to edit and improove this Wiki, so I would like to apply for Adminship. I truely believe I can help this Wiki become a large and more informing site. Thank you.
