Necessity

I don't think this needs to be a disambiguation. I think with this few articles on it, we can safely just distinguish them from Orion (New Earth), and that way the people looking for the New God who's been very influential in current events (probably the majority) won't have to go through a disambig, but the people looking for other things will still find them exactly the same amount of clicking away as if there had been a disambig. There, I just distinguished them. The disambiguation doesn't get you anywhere faster or reveal new information, it only slows people down, in this instance. Although this isn't always the case.

I'm having trouble following your reasoning. So you don't think there should be a disambig, basically, because you don't think there should be one? Do you suggest that other three topic disambigs also be restructured this way? 'Cause I looked around a lot, and couldn't find anything to support that viewpoint.

We haven't resolved it yet, but we had a discussion about this on the forums here. We have a lot of bad disambigs all around the site. My reasoning is, just because two things have the same name, doesn't mean the same amount of people are looking for them. With a disambiguation here, it takes two clicks to get to any of those three articles. Using a simple distinguisher, it still takes exactly as long to get to the two less popular articles as it would with a disambig, it just slightly prioritizes the much more popular one. Yeah though, this site is absolutely littered with excessive disambigs, I've been trying to get those sorted out for awhile.
