Memory Alpha  AboutPolicies and guidelinesFA policiesFA criteria → Featured article nominations

This page is for the nomination and discussion of articles that may be potentially included in Memory Alpha's list of featured articles. A featured article is an especially well-written, informative, and comprehensive article that covers all available information on a subject. If you feel one of our articles meets this criteria, you may suggest it here in accordance with the nomination policy. For a list of articles previously nominated, see the archive.

To nominate an article, start a new discussion under "Nominations without objections" with a heading containing a link back to the article you want to suggest. Provide a two to three-paragraph summary of the article (usually the article's lead-in if possible) with an appropriate picture, this will be what is displayed in the portals if the nomination is successful, followed by a brief reason why you feel the article should be featured. If you are nominating an article that you have worked on, please note that the nomination is a self-nomination.

Sample format:

=== [[ARTICLE]] ===
[[File:<image>|thumb|<caption>]]
<summary>
----
<reasoning> - <signature>

Once this is done, a notice that the article has been nominated as a featured article candidate should be added to the article in question by inserting {{fan}} at the top of the page, above any other templates except the article type template.

When you are commenting on a nomination, please take the time to read the entire article before you decide whether to Support or Oppose the nomination. Nominations with objections should be moved to the appropriate section until they are resolved.

When supporting or opposing an article, please use a bullet point (by adding a * before your comment) without any indent so these will be easy to find later. General comments should be indented as usual, and, as always, please sign your nominations and comments with "~~~~".

Alynna Nechayev

Alynna Nechayev 2371

Admiral Alynna Nechayev in 2371

Alynna Nechayev was a Human Starfleet flag officer during the late-24th century. She was a significant figure in Starfleet's dealings with the Cardassian Union and a fierce advocate of Federation security. She was Captain Jean-Luc Picard's direct superior but had a poor working relationship with him.

In 2369, while serving as a Vice Admiral, she ordered Picard to relinquish command of the USS Enterprise-D to Captain Edward Jellico, the latter having experience with Cardassians in the past and having worked to establish the original armistice of the Federation-Cardassian War. She assigned Picard to a special operation to infiltrate a Cardassian installation on Celtris III. After Jellico's negotiations with Gul Lemec worsened, she authorized his actions against the Cardassian warships in the McAllister C-5 Nebula, at the risk of provoking open war and abandoning Picard.

Nechayev was promoted to the rank of Fleet Admiral in the year 2370, during which time she paid another visit to the Enterprise-D. Nechayev believed that Picard was too soft-handed in his dealings with Federation adversaries. She cited in particular his refusal to use Hugh as a carrier to introduce an invasive program into the Borg Collective. When she later commanded the Starfleet task forces assembled in response to the Borg attack of 2369, she ordered Picard to deploy the program should another opportunity avail itself. Picard tried making amends in 2370, offering her Bularian canapés to help her feel welcome aboard the Enterprise. However, his objections to her order removing the Native American colonists from the Dorvan V colony in the Demilitarized Zone left tension between the two.


I think this article is as complete as it can be. All of the in-universe content is there together with a decent quotes section and a comprehensive background information section, complete with Nechayev's appearances in non-canon works. I don't think any more can be done to this article and it is deserving of FA status in it's present form. --| TrekFan Open a channel 17:41, May 31, 2014 (UTC)

Anyone interested in voting for or against? It would be a shame not to have any votes. --| TrekFan Open a channel 11:47, June 6, 2014 (UTC)
