=== [[Kelvin type]] ===
 
[[File:USS Kelvin.jpg|thumb|The ''Kelvin''-type USS ''Kelvin'']]
 
The {{Type|Kelvin}} was a class of Federation starship in the 23rd century. Ships of this class were operated by Starfleet in the 2230s.
 
 
Comprised of enough room to carry a crew of at least 800, the ''Kelvin''-type contained at least thirteen decks. It had a single ventral warp nacelle housing the ship's warp drive engine, an upper saucer section topped by a central dome, and a topmost secondary hull, which featured a single shuttlebay at the aft and a navigational deflector at the front.
 
 
The low warp nacelle had an unusual extra exhaust at its aft end, which lit up when the nacelle was energized. An impulse drive was also at the aft of the saucer section. The navigational deflector had an extremely thin emitter at its center, surrounded by a circle that was completely black in the middle but had a blue petal-like pattern at its fringe, retaining the black as a background. The forward end of the nacelle had a ring that looked similar but was primarily colored gold.

'''Self-nomination:''' I strongly believe this article fits the FA criteria. --[[User:Defiant|Defiant]] 01:10, June 12, 2012 (UTC)
 
*'''Support''' the article, but '''oppose''' the blurb. A quick look at any of the other blurbs should have been enough to know that blurbs only contain a link to the article in question, [[Memory Alpha Talk:Reconfirmation of featured articles#Blurbs|as previously discussed]]. Also, this blurb has little to do with the type itself, as it reads more like a blurb for the USS ''Kelvin'', right down to the picture only being labeled as that ship. While blurbs should usually be the first few paragraphs, in this case a different section should be used instead of the history section. - {{User:Archduk3/Sig/nature}} 13:06, June 13, 2012 (UTC)
 
<s>Well, as far as I can see, you're the only editor here who has been fixating over this "blurb" idea. If it's so easy to do, I don't see why you couldn't have done it yourself, rather than just leaving the message that it needed a blurb and then criticizing my efforts to add one! I'm sorry that I even tried. --[[User:Defiant|Defiant]] 13:45, June 13, 2012 (UTC)</s>
 
 
With blurbs recently having been approved by the community, I'm also interested in getting this one right, though I'm unsure about exactly how to, due to the policy pages being unclear about them. Also, thanks for your comments so far, but the FA nomination policy page currently states, "''If you approve of an article, write '''Support''' followed by your reasons,''" so is there any chance you could disclose some reasoning for your support vote? --[[User:Defiant|Defiant]] 18:51, June 13, 2012 (UTC)
 
 
I've now had a go at rewriting the blurb. Is it any better? --[[User:Defiant|Defiant]] 19:04, June 13, 2012 (UTC)
 
 
:Blurbs have ''not'' been recently approved by the community, just by you, as the consensus you're claiming is now enough is actually less than the one you claimed wasn't. Since that is now stated for the record, my reasoning for supporting the article is I "believe this article fits the FA criteria". I would have just placed a "〃" in my original statement, but I don't believe in this strongly enough to warrant that. The blurb is also now acceptable. - {{User:Archduk3/Sig/nature}} 19:49, June 13, 2012 (UTC)
 
 
Haha! Thanks for those compliments; you made me laugh. :) Any more comments from other users? --[[User:Defiant|Defiant]] 20:18, June 13, 2012 (UTC)
 
 
::'''Comment'''-Shouldn't there be a quick note after the first sentence "In 2233, a vessel of this type, the USS Kelvin, was deployed near Klingon space. " that she has returned that year to earth, as Kirk was born in Iowa in the prime universe? Or at least something like "She shortly thereafter returned to Federation space, where one of her female crew members disembarked in order to give birth."--[[User:Sennim|Sennim]] 10:16, June 22, 2012 (UTC)
 
 
I suspect that would entail speculation, as we don't canonically know that, in the prime reality, the ''Kelvin'' didn't rendezvous with another starship that delivered [[Winona Kirk]] and her unborn baby to Earth. From what the writers have stated, this is not what they intended, though that bg info seems more suitable for the page about the ''Kelvin'' itself, where you can currently find such info. --[[User:Defiant|Defiant]] 11:31, June 22, 2012 (UTC)
 
 
*'''Support'''-You're right of course got my ''ship'' and ''type'' mixed up:)--[[User:Sennim|Sennim]] 13:10, June 22, 2012 (UTC)
 
 
Cool; no worries! I'm basically happy to address any and all comments on how this page could be further improved, though I personally can't think of any ways. Thanks for your vote. --[[User:Defiant|Defiant]] 14:30, June 22, 2012 (UTC)
 
 
The article is indebted to [[James Clyne]] for okaying the use of his ''Kelvin''-type bridge concept artwork, so a big thanks to him. Any other comments and/or votes? --[[User:Defiant|Defiant]] 18:20, June 22, 2012 (UTC)
 
 
*'''Support''' - excellent work.&ndash;[[User:Cleanse|Cleanse]] <small><sup>( [[User talk:Cleanse|talk]] | [[Special:Contributions/Cleanse|contribs]] )</sup></small> 06:32, June 23, 2012 (UTC)
 
 
Thanks a lot for the votes so far. Would anyone else like to make another? --[[User:Defiant|Defiant]] ([[User talk:Defiant|talk]]) 02:12, June 28, 2012 (UTC)
 
 
*'''Support'''. Meets the criteria. [[User:31dot|31dot]] ([[User talk:31dot|talk]]) 03:03, June 28, 2012 (UTC)
 
 
As stated, the votes are very much appreciated. With one more support vote needed to make this a featured article, are there any takers? Alternatively, if you think this article isn't worthy of FA status, feel free to vote "oppose," by all means. Thanks. --[[User:Defiant|Defiant]] ([[User talk:Defiant|talk]]) 12:27, June 30, 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 "~~~~".
