Some of you will be pleased to learn that Canberra has an entry on the Star Trek fan’s wikipedia, Memory Alpha.

“Canberra is the capital city of the nation of Australia, on Earth.

In the mid 22nd century, the Vulcans maintained a consulate in Canberra. (ENT:”Terra Prime”)

It’s not much but it beats “Mostly Harmless”.

I thought the Telstra Tower had another purpose in life other than a bloody large broadcast arial.

…and a belated ‘hello’ to all Crikey! subscribers, courtesy of a tardy Christian Kerr…

Well the FBI in the Hoover building has a map of the world of where they have offices. They have an office in “Canbera”

Typical nerds, bickering about even the finer details 🙂

I was referring to the site’s place within the community, rather than the technology used to implement it.

Just a small point, the website is a ‘wiki’, not a ‘wikipedia’. Wikipedia is a specific website, that happens to use a Wiki format.

I think I will stick with mostly harmless 🙂

I just knew Johnboy was a massive nerd!

Having watched the episode (yes, I am a huge geek, why do you ask?), it was pronounced the American way, Can-Berra, rather than the australian way, Canbra.
