A separate page just for Theta[edit source]

Hey, I propose creating a separate page just for the Theta ship where we can tell its complete story. And this article we can use as a sort of an overview one, explaining just what kind of a ship-class a "recon craft" is and listing all the know crafts. "Recon craft Theta" would then redirect to "Theta." Whaddya say? ;) --TheBearPaw 11:47, June 16, 2011 (UTC)

In fact, I already redirect Theta to the "Alien crash site" of Fallout 3, which already contains all information about it ;). Anyway, only two recon craft are known (only one named and a second appear only with the Wild Wasteland trait), so a listing of know crafts are useless. Also, this page in this format (special because it's not a humans vehicles) allows quick viewing of certain situations and conditions of using a recon craft by aliens.

The "background" section is currently a list of the crafts, though. I changed it to reflect that. I redirected "Theta" to its section here as the "crash site" page is merely about the geographical location while the reader typing "Theta" (as opposed to, say, "Theta crash site") would probably want to know the vessel's history.
The decision whether to have the ships listed and fully detailed in one page, or each of them have their own article, I guess, in the end, just boils down to a matter of personal taste. We could really do it in 2 ways:
  • Fully describe the two ships under the "recon craft" article as it is now.
  • Cut the info about the crafts and paste it in their separate newly created articles, whilst leaving this "recon craft" page with: the definition of what a recon craft is, info about its construction, purpose of use, the list of the 2 crafts with linking to the vessels' individual pages, etc. Since we do not know the name of the Mojave recon craft, the name of its article would have to be conjectural, e.g. "2281 Mojave recon craft."
I myself would prefer the second choice. Yeah, the articles about the ships would be small (especially the Mojave craft one), but, I don't know, with my taste I'd like each ship to have its very own page. ;) Maybe we could have a lil' vote here, see which version the other editors would like to see? --TheBearPaw 12:00, June 17, 2011 (UTC)
