Article should be split in two Edit

The Trivia Gallery for "Rebel Resolve" makes it clear that the Imperial era Arquitens is "a reworking of the Jedi light cruiser" and "mere than a simple repaint" because it has "subtle updates in its design." Therefore, the Imperial light cruiser seen during the Age of the Empire is an Arquitens MK 2 and should be treated separately. --LelalMekha (talk) 15:00, September 21, 2015 (UTC)

  • If nobody objects, I suggest using "Arquitens-class light cruiser/Canon" as an overarching article, and creating two new pages (which could be called tentatively "Republic Light Cruiser" and "Imperial Light Cruiser"). --LelalMekha (talk) 23:54, September 23, 2015 (UTC)
    • Makes sense, since the Imperial version has additional escape pods and a docking clamp instead of turrets. Like the different ISD variants. - AV-6R7Crew Pit 00:04, September 24, 2015 (UTC)
      • The way it's set out doesn't make sense. So there are now three articles - Arquitens, Jedi Light Cruiser, Imperial Light Cruiser. The problem is that it is mentioned that the Jedi Light Cruiser is a subtype of Arquitens - how though? What is the difference between an Arquitens and a Jedi Light Cruiser? They seem to be the same thing, so makes sense to merge those two pages and keep the separate page for the Imperial ship. --120.145.129.35 06:20, January 25, 2016 (UTC)
        • I can't see why you think it makes no sense. Imperial-class Star Destroyer is a generic term, while Imperial I-class Star Destroyer and Imperial II-class Star Destroyer are variants. What's so hard to understand about that? As pointed out by the official site, the Imperial variant of the Arquitens is different enough from the one shown in TCW. --LelalMekha (talk) 10:01, January 25, 2016 (UTC)
          • I'm not disputing that the Imperial version of the cruiser is different, I'm saying it makes no sense to have three pages for two different ships. Just have one page for the Republic version, and at the bottom put "this was then developed into the Imperial Arquitens cruiser" with a link. Otherwise it currently looks like there are two different Republic versions, which as said is confusing. --121.215.153.168 14:45, February 9, 2016 (UTC)
            • To make this article more in line with the Imperial-class Star Destroyer article (which I believe is the intent of having the three different articles), it should be noted in the article that "it consisted of two variants, the Jedi light cruiser and the Imperial light cruiser" or something to that effect. Would that resolve the confusion of the three articles?--SUPCOM0356 (talk) 20:56, February 9, 2016 (UTC)
              • But it's exactly what the article currently says... --LelalMekha (talk) 21:02, February 9, 2016 (UTC)
                • The confusion seems to stem from the fact that the Arquitens page has an image of the Jedi light cruiser variant, making it seem that we have two articles on the same subject. - AV-6R7Crew Pit 21:06, February 9, 2016 (UTC)
                  • Yes, but if people actually read the article instead of complaining, it certainly would clear the confusion. That being said, this page shouldn't have an infobox at all. It should be some sort of glorified disambiguation page, like Victory-class Star Destroyer/Legends. --LelalMekha (talk) 21:11, February 9, 2016 (UTC)
                    • No disputing that, we should remove the infobox and history section. Completely unnecessary. - AV-6R7Crew Pit 21:14, February 9, 2016 (UTC)
                      • Cevan, a higher authority has spoken against my move. If you want to make something of that page, be my guest! :-) --LelalMekha (talk) 22:00, February 9, 2016 (UTC)
