Talk:BattleTech Universe

(Redirected from Talk:BattleTech)


After looking on Wikipedia for FASA and FanPro's entries, I realized that the BattleTech entry is all written as well. Plus, so many articles have been linked through it, by porting/linking from this article, many of the red links on BTW can be completed/started. I'll work on this through time, but please jump in and help. --Revanche 22:12, 29 September 2006 (CDT)

External Links[edit]

There are so many its not funny. We are not a linkfarm (or at the very least, we shouldn't be); these should either be excised or split off into some sort of community portal. --Xoid 20:56, 15 December 2006 (CST)


Since I did not like the page I have totally reworked it into something closer to my understanding on how the BT wiki should cover its namesake subject. Not quite finished yet, and frankly I could use some help - so you're welcome to... Frabby 14:27, 4 May 2009 (PDT)

Wow. You blew it up. Well, in fairness, it had it coming. What worked on Wikipedia was not going to work here, though it needed the kick-start. After looking at,, and; I think the right way to go is to talk about BT from an out-of-universe perspective. That is, I believe this article should be about the intellectual property. It should not be a mess of wikilinks to factions and other topics. We have categories and a search engine for that. Instead, this article should be about the board games, video games, CCG, and cartoon. In that, I think it is closer to what the Wikipedia page used to look like (and still halfway does). --Scaletail 18:04, 4 May 2009 (PDT)


"BattleTech ("BT" for short) is a science fiction universe and media franchise, often compared to Star Trek or Star Wars." I have never heard it compared to Star Trek/Wars. I'd sooner compare it to Transformers myself... I'm not from around here, but on Wikipedia you provide a reference for a claim like that. I'd change 'often' to 'sometimes' or 'occasionally' or reword it to 'comparable to' (which again could be considered an overstatement); or just get rid of that part of the sentence entirely (although I admit something would be missing then). ~Stranger from Wikipedia

As far as I understand the sentence in question, it compares BT to other popular fictional universes/settings, without claiming an actual semblance to either. I can see where you're coming from, though. Probably best to strike that half-sentence altogether. Frabby 12:30, 19 June 2011 (UTC)

BattleTech Universe[edit]

I have moved the article ftom BattleTech to BattleTech Universe as this reflects the wider IP in my opinion. Also allows for a disambiguation for the various uses.--Dmon (talk) 07:03, 7 May 2018 (EDT)
