Page is very small and lot of info is repeated or duplicated by the much larger Perigard Zalman (Leviathan) page. More than understand a need for a page, but given the low likelihood we will ever get stats for the L Prime, what can it provide? Cyc (talk) 16:36, 23 September 2014 (PDT)

I think the problem is that we come up with these individual WarShip profiles. There not enough information on the class (since it's a singleton ship) fill in a Leviathan Prime article and named ship file. Personally, since this was only one ever made, Perigard Zalman (WarShip) content should be moved into the Leviathan Prime's ship history. -- Wrangler (talk) 19:41, 23 September 2014 (PDT)
We've got numerous ship classes where we know little but the name and some inferred information. That makes for short articles, but when that's everything we know so be it. By contrast, the deployment history of the Perigard Zalman has nothing to do with the specs of the Leviathan Prime class and thus doesn't belong into this article. Conversely, the article about the Perigard Zalman needs not spend a lot of words on the ship's specs. I don't have time to spare right now but my workover suggestion for this article would be to add the obligatory infobox, then comb Wars of Reaving for any hint about the ship's specs and capabilities, and remove the history of the Perigard Zalman save for mentioning it as the only example of this class to date and that it was destroyed.

My goal was to put together enough to get rid of the Wanted Pages redlink. If we keep making these little WarShip articles, we're going to get this kind of thing. Frabby, there are no stats for the ship. None. Anywhere. I've combed through Wars of Reaving and pulled in any relevant data I could find. Unfortunately, there isn't really any to be found. All that it says is the Perigard Zalman was the biggest butt-kicking-est ship the Vipers ever built. So I included all of this. *shrug*
If you really feel that strongly about it, that's fine. I'm perfectly happy to have this redirect to the Zalman article or vice versa.--Mbear(talk) 03:08, 24 September 2014 (PDT)
Don't get me wrong. The WarShip class article should definitely be kept apart from the individual ship article! There was an insightful BT Forum thread about the Lev Prime: [1] I'll see if I can whip the article into shape later today. Frabby (talk) 05:29, 24 September 2014 (PDT)
Given the lack of stats I thought my only option to show the power of the ship was to include the descriptions of the Zalman in combat.--Mbear(talk) 06:28, 24 September 2014 (PDT)
