I think it's all there. It's long enough and is well written. [[User:Tobyk777|Tobyk777]] 19:16, 19 Aug 2005 (UTC)

* '''Strongly Oppose'''. This doesn't say alot about her relationship with Neelix, and it doesn't mention ANYTHING about the events of [[VOY]]: "[[Elogium (episode)|Elogium]]" where she went through the [[Elogium]] and had to decide whether she was ready for a child (etc.) It seems character's articles should reflect "Kes episodes", as there weren't a great deal. Also, information regarding her feelings about Paris and Neelix fighting over her ([[Parturition]]) seem to be missing. - [[User:AJHalliwell|AJHalliwell]] 21:03, 19 Aug 2005 (UTC)

===[[Dominion history]]===
 
A complete and detailed article about a vital par of [[DS9]] [[User:Tobyk777|Tobyk777]] 22:53, 10 Aug 2005 (UTC)
 
:'''Strongly Oppose'''- You have 5 other nominations already pending, i know you like your work but there is a limit, why not let the other ones resolve first, beofre more nominations or self nominations--[[User:Kahless|Kahless]] 03:59, 11 Aug 2005 (UTC)
 
:: Yes, this is getting to be a bit frivolous. --[[User:Gvsualan|Alan del Beccio]] 04:14, 11 Aug 2005 (UTC)
 
*While I think there is still a bit to be done at this page, this is not far from being completed. I still must '''oppose''', however, we should not be too hard on Tobyk777 as this is the best thing he/she has suggested. This page may well be a featured article in the not too distant future. [[User:Jaf|Jaf]] 00:50, 12 Aug 2005 (UTC)Jaf
 
 
===[[Q Continuum]]===
 
*'''Self Nomination''' A complete and thurough summary showing all the events of the Continuum. [[User:Tobyk777|Tobyk777]] 03:31, 10 Aug 2005 (UTC)
 
*'''Support''', the Q are awesome. [[User:Cabal|Cabal]] 22:21, 10 Aug 2005 (UTC)
 
:::*^^^Can that even count as a valid reason why for a suport vote--[[User:Kahless|Kahless]] 19:26, 11 Aug 2005 (UTC)
 
*'''Oppose'''- It stray from subjuct matter, some pictures have no relevence, and goes to much into actually character, or events not the continum itself--[[User:Kahless|Kahless]] 03:54, 11 Aug 2005 (UTC)
 
*'''Oppose''' for the same reasons as Kahless, particularly for the article going into character detail instead of events of the continuum itself.--[[User:Scimitar|Scimitar]] 13:41, 11 Aug 2005 (UTC)
 
*'''Oppose''' there is still debate on the talk page about what this even means. [[User:Jaf|Jaf]] 00:47, 12 Aug 2005 (UTC)Jaf
 
 
===[[Danube class]]===
 
* this is remarkably well-written and descriptive in my opinion [[Special:Contributions&target=84.184.158.61|84.184.158.61]] (Aug. 9, 2005)
 
* '''Oppose''' Well-written? Maybe, but complete? Hardly, especially considering the numerous appearances of the runabout. Even though the article on the [[Defiant class]] of starship is far more detailed (yes, I know that more information on the Defiant class is available), its has failed to become a featured article on at least one occasion.--[[User:Scimitar|Scimitar]] 18:52, 9 Aug 2005 (UTC)
 
* '''Oppose''' agreed, this seems to lack some important information for the class, such as more of a look into those mission pods. Also, the Appearance list is anything but complete. On another note; I don't think IP users can nominate articles for Featured Status...- [[User:AJHalliwell|AJHalliwell]] 19:14, 9 Aug 2005 (UTC)
 
*'''Oppose''' This article is a very long way from complete. It lacks ship specs on the tactical and navgiation systems. The appearces list is incomplete. There is far too little info on its use in [[DS9]]. [[User:Tobyk777|Tobyk777]] 00:50, 10 Aug 2005 (UTC)
 
*'''Oppose''' For every reason listed above including IP's cant nominate--[[User:Kahless|Kahless]] 05:07, 11 Aug 2005 (UTC)
 
*The fact that an unregistered user nominated this is reason enough to toss it out. [[User:Jaf|Jaf]] 00:42, 12 Aug 2005 (UTC)Jaf
 
**Actually, no, it is not. According to the [[Memory Alpha:Featured article nomination policy]]: '''Anyone can nominate an article'''. If you find an article you believe worthy of featured article status, you can nominate it! '''This includes unregistered (anonymous) users.''' --[[User:Gvsualan|Alan del Beccio]] 07:08, 12 Aug 2005 (UTC)
 
* For a completely unrelated reason, lack of completeness (mostly), I vote '''oppose'''. --[[User:Gvsualan|Alan del Beccio]] 07:08, 12 Aug 2005 (UTC)
 
* '''Oppose'''. Although the article is very well written with excellant photos and a intuitive layout - it is far from complete as stated - a great deal of tech spec is missing.

Nominations without objections

Paradise

A very detailed episode summary with good backround info, and memorable quotes. All in all, everything needed in an espisode article. Tobyk777 02:24, 18 Aug 2005 (UTC) * I'd like someone familiar with MA to address a question I asked concerning this article before anyone votes on it. Thanks. --Schrei 03:59, 18 Aug 2005 (UTC)

  • I converted my analysis into background information, so I'll say neutral since I wrote about 95% of the article. --Schrei 03:06, 19 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Storm Front, Part II

  • Self-nomination. The concluding episode in the "Storm Front" two-parter. --Defiant | Talk 21:07, 17 Aug 2005 (UTC)
  • Support Tobyk777 23:49, 17 Aug 2005 (UTC)
  • Comment. You write great articles (once again, no vote from me on account of not seeing it) and I'm sure this will be featured, but I think you might want to break up some of the paragraphs. In particular act three, paragraph one looks awfully long. I think this is because you alot one paragraph per scene, which is a good policy, but doesn't have to be absolute. --Schrei 17:32, 18 Aug 2005 (UTC)
  • Looks good to me. Support. -Platypus Man 17:37, 18 Aug 2005 (UTC)
  • After a few very minor tweaks, it now has my full Support. An excellent article. --From Andoria with Love 04:16, 19 Aug 2005 (UTC)
  • Support, although the image of Daniels right on top of Earth, and then going over that line annoys me. Not that it needs to be fixed or anything, it just does. - AJHalliwell 05:19, 19 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Henry Starling

  • Self-nomination. I worked on this for quite some time over the course of two or so weeks; I really think it qualifies as a FA inductee. — THOR 22:24, 16 Aug 2005 (UTC)
  • Neutral This article, although well written barely qualifies lenth-wise. Also, Starling is a minor Character who only appears in one episode. (But is was a 2 parter so it could qualifiy as 2). Also, in this article there are many red links. But since this is an article high in quality, (Which people have said appears to be more important than quality in FA status) i do nethier oppose nor support Tobyk777 03:59, 17 Aug 2005 (UTC)
    • It should be noted that I don't believe most of those are policy-backed complaints. Nominations are not judged by number of appearances (as the ever quoted Grathon Tolar, the Exocomp, Tuvix and Telek R'Mor are all featured's that appeared in only one episode). And minor characters are embraced at MA, Ayala, Ethan Novakovich and Tal Celes are all featured. And I don't believe the number of red-links relates to an articles quality, as those are not the links being called into question. - AJHalliwell 04:27, 17 Aug 2005 (UTC)
  • Comment. I can't vote since I've never seen it, but this made me want to watch the episode. Is there a way to make it a little longer? That might be all there is to the character, but it does seem a little short. Other than that, I like it. --Schrei 04:24, 17 Aug 2005 (UTC)
  • Neutral It's missing something, and I'm not sure what. Something about it's structure or lack of creativity...it's just not standing out for me. --Alan del Beccio 08:33, 18 Aug 2005 (UTC)
  • I also agree with Gv', it's missing something. It seems to "the duty" and not nessesarily "above and beyond the call of duty". Also, as no one's supported (or objected, we just seem to be group commenting on it...) I don't believe this can get featured status yet. - AJHalliwell 21:03, 19 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Tribunal

  • Self nomination. I figure why not, since you guys liked the last one. --Schrei 07:59, 14 Aug 2005 (UTC)
  • Support. You've definitely got my vote. An excellent summary on one of the more psychological episodes. I agree about the criticism over the deus ex machina-style ending though.--Scimitar 15:09, 14 Aug 2005 (UTC)
  • Support, excellently written! — THOR 15:43, 14 Aug 2005 (UTC)
  • Huge Support I agree just like the other one this is excelently written, organized, complete, and just great. You really have talent as a writer. I'll support anything you put up here if you keep this up. Also, you seem to be picking all my farvote episodes. Tobyk777 00:33, 15 Aug 2005 (UTC)
    • Please dont support an article soley because it; A: contains one of you favorite episodes, B: is nominated or written by a favored community member. Judge each article on its own merit w/o putting personal beliefes into it. --Kahless 07:18, 16 Aug 2005 (UTC) This has been your favorite neighborhood Klingon
    • Kahless is right - I think Garak once said "I find your blind adoration both flattering and disturbing." :) --Schrei 07:57, 16 Aug 2005 (UTC)
  • Mild oppose. While it seems as if the episode summary is extremely detailed and well-written, I'm still slightly weary of the image use, which is what doomed previous featured nominees like "Force of Nature," which is also very well-written but failed to become featured due to image use concerns (which were never really completely addressed to my satisfaction). I'll flag the images I think could probably be removed in the talk page; feel free to discuss or state why they should be kept or removed there. -- SmokeDetector47 // talk 18:01, 18 Aug 2005 (UTC)
    • See talk page and article for my revisions. Like I said on the talk page, I really appreciate the specific feedback rather than simply opposing it for a general reason. --Schrei 02:51, 19 Aug 2005 (UTC)
      • My concerns were all taken into account... thanks Schrei! The article now has my full support. -- SmokeDetector47 // talk 03:00, 19 Aug 2005 (UTC)
  • Support. Excellent summary, great pics. Great start for a new MemoryAlphan. - AJHalliwell 21:03, 19 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Nominations with objections

Kes

I think it's all there. It's long enough and is well written. Tobyk777 19:16, 19 Aug 2005 (UTC)

  • Strongly Oppose. This doesn't say alot about her relationship with Neelix, and it doesn't mention ANYTHING about the events of VOY: "Elogium" where she went through the Elogium and had to decide whether she was ready for a child (etc.) It seems character's articles should reflect "Kes episodes", as there weren't a great deal. Also, information regarding her feelings about Paris and Neelix fighting over her (Parturition) seem to be missing. - AJHalliwell 21:03, 19 Aug 2005 (UTC)
