This page title needs to be changed to "Tosk (Assault Squad Officer)"[edit source]

I have tried to do this but cannot figure out how to do so. Someone, please help. Thanks.--Macboy80 21:27, 13 April 2013 (UTC)

I don't think we need a rename. Tosk of Borg and I.K.S. Tosk are distinctive enough that people shouldn't have much trouble finding what they're looking for. I did tweak the disambiguation a little, but that should probably be enough. - Mitchz95 16:13, 14 April 2013 (UTC)

Tosk: Maintenance Engineer[edit source]

I received a Tosk purple doff which is a maintenance engineer feb3,2017. perhaps there are more than one version, and since i use wiki to discover what specialization doffs are as to replace them in a full roster, i dismissed an assault squad officer before accepting Tosk, only to discover that he was an engineer. i did see this mentioned in "notes" afterwards, but perhaps a mention at the top of the page where the specialization is listed would help future players.

ex: SPECIALIZATION: Assault Squad Officer (not always)

or change the font color to red in the notes section. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 50.92.143.34 (talk · contr)

I moved Tosk to Tosk (Assault Squad Officer) and created disambiguation page Tosk that lists other pages with similar name. Other doff articles don't exist but it should give insight in existence of different types of Tosk doff. --Damixon (talk) 12:37, 4 February 2017 (UTC)
There is a perfectly valid reason why every tosk duty officer is called tosk. I suggest watching the associated DS9 episode. On the other hand all the regular tosks are already in the original lists (like here). The reason this tosk exist in the first place is that it is a handmade (special doff power etc etc) doff opposed to randomly generated (standard powers). Now to the part that really gets me. For almost five years the page is good enough as tosk, now someone complains without even signing you go head over heals to accommodate that. You 'did' check how many pages linked to Tosk 'before' you decided to move it around right? --Dukedom (talk) 15:07, 6 February 2017 (UTC)
Moving it back because I haven't considered there is also ASO Tosk doff with regular power. Otherwise, Tosk as disambiguation would have been a better solution. --Damixon (talk) 18:42, 6 February 2017 (UTC)
