I cut the following sentence from the article. The reference (on page 216) seems most likely to refer to the "Ground Zero" of a nuclear detonation (either Hiroshima or WWIII), rather than to the former WTC site. Thoughts? --Seventy 02:20, 27 December 2006 (UTC)
- In 2267, Fleet Captain Christopher Pike would remember a course on early weaponry at Starfleet Academy, which among other things once discussed the large scale and instantaneous death - witnessed worldwide - at the site of Ground Zero, which the site of the World Trade Center was called following the attacks when he was shown the remains of a Talosian city. (TOS novel Burning Dreams).
Yeah, sounds like a nuclear GZ, not the WTC site.--Emperorkalan 03:29, 27 December 2006 (UTC)
- Could be. But the reason I'd say the Ground Zero that Pike recalled is the site of the WTC was that it was witnessed world wide - which thanks to media was the case when the towers were destroyed. Servo 18:07, 3 January 2007 (UTC)
- I would think that a nuclear detonation would get as least as much coverage as WTC and 9/11.--Turtletrekker 23:56, 3 January 2007 (UTC)
- Pike was recalling an Academy course on weapon use. Though used as such by al Qaeda, airplanes are not weapons. --Seventy 00:39, 4 January 2007 (UTC)
