Not exactly the most memorable of episodes but the summary currently offered for it, certainly is! (Plus I'm happy to see them use the shot of [[Viorsa]] I captured!)--[[User:T smitts|T smitts]] 06:47, 26 Aug 2005 (UTC)

*'''Neutral'''. I won't oppose it because I really like the summary text. It is nicely written but I'm not too sure about the image use. In some places the pictures are in big clusters and in others they are absent. Removing a couple of them may help and I certainly don't like same picture (the Clown) being used twice. I'm sure that someone could resolve this issue better than I can though. As soon as the issue with the images is resolved, I'll probably support the nomination. I think that a great deal more references can be added too.--[[User:Scimitar|Scimitar]] 14:32, 26 Aug 2005 (UTC)
 
**<strike>Yeah, I haven't proofread/spiffed it up yet. Maybe I'll do it on Sunday once I recover from Saturday, unless someone else wants to take a shot at it. Btw, Smitty, thanks for the comment about the summary vs. the episode - you've just inspired me to make [[Threshold]] a Featured Article! :D --[[User:Schrei|Schrei]] 18:28, 26 Aug 2005 (UTC)</strike>
 
*'''Support''' I dont think that the pictures have to be spread out. they're fine in clumps. I think that everything in this article checks out. [[User:Tobyk777|Tobyk777]] 18:35, 26 Aug 2005 (UTC)
 
**Just out of curiosity, Toby, have you ever ''not'' supported a nomination? --[[User:Schrei|Schrei]] 18:42, 26 Aug 2005 (UTC)
 
*** Yes, I oppossed the Dunabe Class Runabout, as well as 3 other articles not coming to mind. But it is my phelisophy that the more featured articles we have, the better our database looks in the eyes of the world. And I want MA to suceed, that's why I think we need to have more featured articles. but if someone nominates something clearly unsatisfactory, I oppose it. But I don't oppose becuase of the way the pictures are layed out. [[User:Tobyk777|Tobyk777]] 02:37, 28 Aug 2005 (UTC)

* Weren't several articles recently voted ''against'' for being to much like episode summaries? Well these sound a lot more like summaries of those scenes then those pages did. Also, as the name of this "skirmish" is non-canon, I think it's future needs to be re-evaluated, ie: [[Talk:Military conflicts#Battle of the Briar Patch|Talk:Military Conflicts]]. - [[User:AJHalliwell|AJHalliwell]] 19:16, 27 Aug 2005 (UTC)

*'''Oppose''' - I'm not sure I can support this. It seems to be written more about the Duras sisters and the [[House of Duras]] than about the ''engagement''. In fact, I find it hard to support a single ''engagement'', including this one, any more than I could an article based solely on the ''engagement'' between the Enterprise-D and the Cardassian warship in the teaser of "[[The Wounded]]". --[[User:Gvsualan|Alan del Beccio]] 07:22, 2 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Nominations without objections

Prototype (episode)

Self-nominationI think having my stuff run alongside Defiant's has given me an inferiority complex, because they keep getting longer and longer. Only beat me by 10kb this time! Anyway, I think this is one of the best I've done. --Schrei 01:11, 30 Aug 2005 (UTC)

  • Suppot Tobyk777 23:14, 30 Aug 2005 (UTC)
  • Support --Scimitar 11:59, 31 Aug 2005 (UTC)

In a Mirror, Darkly, Part II

Self nomination. A page that I hope is accepted as a Defiant class article! Thanks to Shran for helping, particularly with the start of the summary. --Defiant | Talk 23:19, 29 Aug 2005 (UTC)

  • Support. You both did a great job with this one. It'll go nicely with the summary for Part I.--Scimitar 00:49, 30 Aug 2005 (UTC)
  • Strong Support. Excellent job, Defiant, as always! Oh, and you're welcome. ;) --From Andoria with Love 00:58, 30 Aug 2005 (UTC)
  • Suppot Tobyk777 23:14, 30 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Nominations with objections

Battle of the Mutara Nebula

Technically this isn't a self-nomination as I only contributed to part of this article but I think that this article is now up there with the other featured battle articles. --Scimitar 00:44, 26 Aug 2005 (UTC)

  • Support. Perhaps an image of the destruction of the Reliant and/or the creation of the Genesis planet may be added? Ottens 10:29, 26 Aug 2005 (UTC)

  • Agreed --Alan del Beccio 07:22, 2 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Battle of Veridian III

(Self nomination) Comparatively speaking, this is one of the minor battles but I think that I made a good effort with writing this article.--Scimitar 00:44, 26 Aug 2005 (UTC)

  • Support, this article has drastically improved in the past two months Jaz 00:55, 26 Aug 2005 (UTC)
  • Support Well written and infomative. I learned a thing or 2 from this since I had not watched TNG in a while. Tobyk777 18:32, 26 Aug 2005 (UTC)

The Collaborator

A great summary, with good quotea and backround info. Tobyk777 22:54, 23 Aug 2005 (UTC)

  • Toby, I appreciate the fact that you like the article, but it's clearly missing a list of references. I might add it when I'm online later tonight, but in the meantime, based on the nominations of this article and These are the Voyages, I think you need to start reading the entire article before nominating/voting. --Schrei 23:54, 23 Aug 2005 (UTC)
    • On that note, I vote to oppose and would like to, once again, bring up my concerns about frivolous nominations made by this user. --Alan del Beccio 05:34, 24 Aug 2005 (UTC)
