Wiki-Tiki-Tavi

Wikipedia is not the end-all, be-all wiki. Wikia specializes in hosting wikis (plural) and hosts two such star related ones;

Memory Alpha:

Welcome to Memory Alpha, a collaborative project to create the most definitive, accurate, and accessible encyclopedia and reference for everything related to Star Trek.

Wookiepedia:

Wookieepedia is a lavish and stunning homage to the Star Wars pop cultural phenomenon. Thanks to its professional appearance, the scope of its content, the quality of its writers and diligence of its administrators, Wookieepedia has become a valuable resource to fans both casual and obsessive, as well as to Star Wars authors.

Also look out for: Mega Man Wiki, Doom Wiki, Muppet Wiki, and Psychology Wiki.

    You’ve shattered my perception of wikipedia, I thought it was the place to find everything about everything. But thanks for the links though, I don’t know that I’ll ever need Memory Alpha or wookiepedia, but it’s nice to know they’re there.

    If you dive a little into it, the differences between Wikipedia and, say, Memory Alpha become evident. Wikipedia becomes positioned as an encyclopedia in the way that everything has to be objective and “encyclopedic”. Memory Alpha, on the other hand, can change perspective from “Real World”, to the world of Star Trek.

    More importantly, things are written for Memory Alpha that I doubt would ever make it to Wikipedia.
