We cannot use the full cover or indicia names, which appear to be something like Star Trek: The Next Generation/Doctor Who: Assimilation².
We also want our name to be in harmony with our friends at w:c:memorybeta, since they are the major wiki covering it from the Star Trek side. Their article name essentially guides ours, since they don't have restrictions on when they can start an article, and we are bound by T:OFF REL.
In other words, because their article is Assimilation², that's what our name should be for the simplest operation of templates.
Assimilation² will be open for business on 30 May 2012 at 1300 UTC. There is no need to preserve the past attempt at creating the article, since it was deleted at a very early stage. It has two sentences, I believe, neither of which will be relevant after the release date of the comic.
(The page Assimilation2 will exist on 30 May as a redirect for those who cannot easily produce a superscripted 2.)
Why Memory Beta?
Those unfamiliar with the organisation of Star Trek wikis at Wikia may wonder why we're giving priority to Memory Beta instead of Memory Alpha. This is because of the scopes of the two wikis. Memory Alpha views only the TV series and movies as canon, so they will only be covering this publishing event as merchandise. Memory Beta's approach to canon is much more like ours. They see this as valid because it is licensed. Therefore their coverage is going to be much more extensive.
