  1. EXTERNAL LINK: Is there any place to find out who is who in the Imperial Nobility of Regina Subsector? I would like to know name and family, about each one. Thanks.

Notes (2017)[edit]

  1. External Link: Dumb question: Is there an official pronunciation of "Regina? Is the "I" long (eye) or short (/i/).
  2. External Link: Here is a treatise i did on the Regina system.

There is no right or wrong. Just opinions.

Glad to hear your response though.

Basically, in the original Latin from which it derives, it is a "hard-g" and a "short-i" and means "Queen". In the British/English pronunciation (used in regnal titles (e.g. "Victoria Regina")), it is a "soft-g" and a "long-i".

I personally have always pronounced it with a "soft-g" and a "short-i", but that is just my preference.

Novel: Traveller 5th Edition Agent of the Imperium (Pg. 168)

  • Some sources report Darida, the tertiary star as M3 V while others report it as M6 V. Maksim-Smelchak (talk) 00:18, 18 May 2015 (EDT)
  • Some sources list the secondary star, Speck, as a MD, while others as a M8 D. Maksim-Smelchak (talk) 00:18, 18 May 2015 (EDT)


Notes (2013)[edit]

The article does not mention the constituents of the population (race/species) or indigenous sophonts. T5, using some earlier sources, mentions large Aslan and Vargr portions of the population, as well as the Amindii, an octopoidal indigenous race. The make up is as follows: Human 63%. Amindii 24%. Vargr 06%. Aslan 03%. Robject on the Citizens of the Imperium Forum references as follows. There are two brief sources: Regina "Trading Card", a promo item Marc sent out back in the 2000s. The other source is a drawing in Best of JTAS #2, page 30, of the busy customs area of a starport. In the front are two luggage inspectors with vaguely reptilian heads and four arms. There are a couple more, acting as security, watching the sophonts coming and going. 12:17, 2 May 2013 (EDT)

Notes (2007)[edit]

I just noticed that Regina (world) shows up as a link on the Core Sector world listing. There may be several other instances of mis-referenced worlds on other sector listing.

Does anyone have any ideas why this maybe happening? Sstefan 11:58, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

This happens due to the line "Regina was first settled in 75 by an expedition from Aiere (1108 Core)". The reference to core here, means that the article is picked up by the template. You will see this a lot with border worlds on the sector that may have some note about a nearby planet in an adjacent sector. Currently the template chooses all worlds with a reference to the sector in question, I don't know another way to distinguish them, unless we were to add a category for each sector.

(too slow) It's a limitation of the Dynamic Page List (DPL) functionality that I used for the SectorWorlds Template. The DPL function for sector worlds says: Anything that links to this page/article which is in Category: Worlds (but not in Category: Templates). So since Regina has a link to the Core sector, it shows up in the Core sector sector worlds list.
You are correct in assuming there are other's of these "mistakes". How to fix these mistakes I'm not sure, yet. Options include:
  • Create a redirect (e.g. Core Sector (world) ->Core Sector) so any world articles go through the redirect. This means creating 266 redirects and editing affected world articles.
  • Create a category for each sector so the DPL is only pulling from the correct category. This means editing 965+ world articles to include the correct category.
  • Re-reading the DPL documentation, as I may be able to come up with something even cooler, but it's really unlikely.

I think I have found the solution.
The sector worlds template looks for a link to the sector page throughout the entire text of this page. This will cause the world listing to appear as part of this sector. By my estimation, we may need to scan through all of the pages to see what worlds are using links such as (Deneb Sector|Deneb) *purposely not shown as wiki link* to see if those other world lists are correct.
By eliminating the sector links within the world write-up (other than the link to the "parent" sector}; this problem may be resolved.Sstefan 12:21, 13 September 2007 (UTC)
The reference to core here is not bad. The world mentioned is in Core, and a link to the sector is normal for world references. Suppressing these links is not desirable, perhaps re-naming the template to "Worlds that reference this sector" would be more accurate, after all if you are reading up about the core, likely world articles that make a reference will be of interest. Dcorrin 12:40, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

Perhaps I should just edit out the reference to Core. The basic wiki notion is, after all, that people should be able to press the link to Aiere and find the information that Aiere is in Core Sector there. Having the reference to Core in the text is a legacy from the days of paper print. I think I've elided similar references elsewhere, though I can't recall an example offhand.

In some ways this is the best solution. The Template:World and Template:WorldS were created to replicate the printed documentation which has a specific way of referencing worlds (i.e. world/subsector (sector hex uwp)), and my initial though was to replicate this as closely as possible. Perhaps with the wiki capabilities we need to rethink that. Tjoneslo 14:10, 13 September 2007 (UTC)
