Having gone through all the trouble of changing the "enterprise" tag, I'm now wondering if it was the right call. I thought I saw more instances of non-starship art, and now I've discovered there are [enterprise d](/tags/enterprise+d), [enterprise e](/tags/enterprise+e), [uss enterprise d](/tags/uss+enterprise+d), and [uss enterprise e](/tags/uss+enterprise+e) tags (and others following that pattern)... And don't even get me started on [this tagging nightmare](/images/2696983).

Oh my god, and now I'm discovering the fucking naval Enterprise is called "USS" as well (I got confused with my country's prefix). Fuck me.

Well, something had to change either way, since there was a "uss" and non-"uss" tag for the same thing... These are the options I see now:
1) Merge all "uss" versions into the non-"uss" ones to reverse my changes and leave the enterprises mixed
2) Commit to the changes and merge the non-"uss" tags into the "uss" ones, but leave "enterprise" for the non-Star Trek ships
3) Merge all "uss" versions into non-"uss" ones, but rename "uss enterprise" to "enterprise (star trek)", leaving "enterprise" for the non-Star Trek ships

5 hours of my life for nothing. Anyway, I'll happily make a list of all the tags that need changing based on the option chosen (or do it myself, besides option 1 - [uss enterprise](/tags/uss+enterprise) is now 100 images). Personally I would choose to hyphenate the letter too (ie. "uss enterprise-d"), much like [x-wing](/tags/x-dash-wing) is hyphenated, but this is really burning me out at this point. I'll clean up the mess, just tell me which to do.

[Edit] Also there's the ship classes being tagged, like [galaxy class](/tags/galaxy+class), which adds another wrinkle. Not all galaxy-class ships are the Enterprise-D, but the reverse is true. This means all the lettered tags could be merged into their class tags, making the search like "enterprise + galaxy class". Or the class tags are too far, and they should all be merged into a generic "Star Trek + spaceship" pool.

I'm losing my mind over this Star Trek tag spaghetti.
