Naming conventions for specific article types[edit | edit source]

Item articles[edit | edit source]

Shortcut: STOW:NIA

Articles about items present in STO, should have their article named exactly as they are in STO, including capitalization. For example, Tactical Kit - Basic Grenades.

Mission articles[edit | edit source]

Shortcut: STOW:NMA

Missions should be named with the "Mission:_" prefix, followed by the exact name of the mission. If a mission line has the same name for multiple missions, the first mission by that name should follow the previous convention and further missions in the line should be disambiguated with parenthetical text signifying the mission part, i.e. (2), (3). If there are two missions by the same name, but they are different for each factions, add _(KDF) at the end of the Klingon mission article. Then add a disambiguation to the Federation mission article.

These rules ensure that anyone typing in Mission: Mission Name will be able to find the mission they want.

NPC articles[edit | edit source]

Shortcut: WW:NNA

Names should be listed under the name that is displayed in-game, including case, e.g. Adina Charles.
