[[File:Galaxy bridge port command console.jpg|thumb|[[Deanna Troi]] operates the {{USS|Enterprise|NCC-1701-D|-D}}'s port command console in [[2364]]]]
 
Senior [[Starfleet]] [[bridge]] officers used specialized '''command consoles''' to access and control many functions of the ship's critical [[LCARS|computer systems]]. These consoles were designed in several different formats specific to each ship's bridge layout, but all were located near (and sometimes attached to) the [[command chair]]. (''[[Star Trek: The Original Series]]'', ''[[Star Trek: The Next Generation]]''; ''[[Star Trek: Deep Space Nine]]''; ''[[Star Trek: Voyager]]''; ''[[Star Trek: Enterprise]]''; {{film|8}}; {{film|10}})

'''Self-nomination.'''
 
 
I've covered all the major starship designs, from {{class|NX}} to the alternate reality {{class|Constitution|alternate}}, and found sourced funtionality and illustrative screenshots for each type of command console from the buttons on [[Jonathan Archer]]'s command chair to the hand scanner on the {{USS|Defiant|2370}}. I'm not really sure what else there is to include - I'll be happy to take any suggestions - but I think this topic is covered top to bottom. I did my best to avoid rehashing too much information from the [[command chair]] page, and tried to stick directly to the actual buttons and displays rather than the chairs directly. - [[User:Aatrek|Aatrek]] 22:19, April 30, 2012 (UTC)
 
 
:I'm not ready to formally say "I object" yet, as I'd like to read it a few times first, but the series citations at the beginning are not necessary, if the rest of the article is cited. The background note in the Sovereign class part needs to go, as all it does is state the unknown and an assumption. As an aside(and irrelevant to this nomination), while I could support this article, I'd like to see some of the older ones reviewed and reconfirmed before we start adding more- at the current rate it will take years to reconfirm the articles that need it.

Noted portions removed. - [[User:Aatrek|Aatrek]] 22:41, April 30, 2012 (UTC)
 
 
::Haven't read the article yet, but I can tell you the blurb is way too short and shouldn't contain citations or links to articles beyond this one. The blurb should be able to support the picture, and be displayed on one of the portal pages which is roughly a third wider than the standard width, so I suggest using the [[Template:Featured article/FA template|template]] to check the size most blurbs should fall into. Anything that doesn't at least come close to filling that box is going to be too short. - {{User:Archduk3/Sig/nature}} 04:55, May 1, 2012 (UTC)
 
 
*'''Oppose''', as the ''Kelvin''-type isn't an alternate reality type of ship, since it predates the split. I've moved it out of that section, but both it and the chair on the USS ''Trainer'' need to be described. - {{User:Archduk3/Sig/nature}} 23:42, May 5, 2012 (UTC)
 
 
*'''Oppose''' for the same reasons, though there is definitely potential for this article, and work should continue on it. [[User:31dot|31dot]] 23:55, May 5, 2012 (UTC)

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 "~~~~".
