SQS-TH-001 vs SQS-TH-001[edit]

I'm wondering how to treat, or even reference the original SQS-TH-001 from Solaris: The Reaches, which has noticeable differences (different weapons, same speed as TRO3055U SQS-TH-002). Adding a note under the 3055U version listing the differences? Cyc 06:14, 31 January 2009 (PST)

You'll have to first find out if you are dealing with a (OOC) retcon in the fashion of "newer publication trumps older publication", or if there are actually two canonical subvariants with the same ID code. Perhaps post a question in the "Masters of the Universe" section of the CBT forum, to get a qualified answer that is valid canon. Usually it's a case of retcon, but I think I recall at least one case of the latter kind (a Hermes variant IIRC). Anyways, what I do in such cases is to add a italiced section with a ":" prefix, explaining the OOC situation. As more and more such cases creep up I have been thinking about adding a "Retcon" section to the articles in question. Anyways, what is important is that the information is there, no matter how you put it into the article.
As for references, you should put the sources you are citing into the References section, and where appropriate add reference footnotes. Frabby 06:36, 31 January 2009 (PST)
I do think that we're dealing with a retcon here. Solaris: The Reaches is, afaik, copyrighted at 1993, whilst Technical Readout: 3055 Upgrade is copyrighted at 2005. Onisuzume 10:46, 31 January 2009 (PST)
Shouldn't the TRO3055U SQS-TH-002 have a topspeed of 81kph judging by reactor and text? Or am I completly missing out on something? the 64kph in TRO:3055 seem like a mistake to me, not the first BT-misprint ever been, methinks.RagTag26 January 2010
