*'''Oppose'''. It's an extensive article but hardly perfect. I'd personally like to see a bit more on their culture. I don't think that the references are complete either.--[[User:Scimitar|Scimitar]] 00:57, 5 Sep 2005 (UTC)
 
*'''Oppose''' Yes I am oppsoing this one contrary to popular belief that I support everything. There is no list of appearances. The article has no link to the rules of Aquisition that I can find. The refrences are incomplete. There is no list of Ferangi, or at least a link to another aticle with a list. [[User:Tobyk777|Tobyk777]] 02:11, 5 Sep 2005 (UTC)

===[[Latinum]]===
A long and detailed list of all the uses of Latinum. I don't know how long this article has been on MA, but I was extremely impressed by it! --[[User:Defiant|Defiant]] | [[User talk:Defiant|''Talk'']] 14:48, 2 Sep 2005 (UTC)

*'''Neutral'''. It's a very good article, and very well researched. I doubt, though, if it's really an example of "the best of Memory Alpha's community work". I don't know, but for some reason this article doesn't really fit with my idea of what an FA should be. As I have no valid reason to oppose, though, I do not. [[User:Ottens|Ottens]] 22:25, 2 Sep 2005 (UTC)

**'''Comment''', I would just like to add, that the fact that it is so thoroughly researched makes it a prime example, because that shows a lot of effort went into this, versus simply watching an episode and just sequentially writing what happened in it...where there is, in effect, no research taking place. With this article, however, there is a great deal of organization, cross referencing and so forth, which indicates a great deal of effort was made in compiling and constructing this article. --[[User:Gvsualan|Alan del Beccio]] 22:38, 2 Sep 2005 (UTC)

*'''A few more Comments''' On the article's talk page, it says that the part about USD conversion rates was deleted. I think that this should be put back in. It's what gives people who read the article a way to see how much latnum is really worth. Also, about the issue on the talk page as to whether gold is valuable to Ferangi, i would say yes. In "[[Little Green Men]]" [[Quark]] agrees to take gold in compensaion for technology. But there are other items sources given which contrict this. This should be added to the contridctary info page on Ten foward. [[User:Tobyk777|Tobyk777]] 22:56, 3 Sep 2005 (UTC)

*'''Neutral''' I can't support this article until the part in the talk page that was deleted is put back. Without the comparison to US dollars there is no way for readers to acuratly visulize how much latnium is worth. [[User:Tobyk777|Tobyk777]] 02:14, 5 Sep 2005 (UTC)

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. --[[User:Scimitar|Scimitar]] 00:44, 26 Aug 2005 (UTC)
+
*'''Oppose'''. It's an extensive article but hardly perfect. I'd personally like to see a bit more on their culture. I don't think that the references are complete either.--[[User:Scimitar|Scimitar]] 00:57, 5 Sep 2005 (UTC)

* I think this should be removed, based on the fact it was nomiated by a blocked user. --[[User:Gvsualan|Alan del Beccio]] 05:35, 5 Sep 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)
 
* Agreed --[[User:Gvsualan|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.--[[User:Scimitar|Scimitar]] 00:44, 26 Aug 2005 (UTC)
 
*'''Support''', this article has drastically improved in the past two months [[User:Jaz|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. [[User:Tobyk777|Tobyk777]] 18:32, 26 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)
 
 
===[[The Collaborator]]===
 
A great summary, with good quotea and backround info. [[User:Tobyk777|Tobyk777]] 22:54, 23 Aug 2005 (UTC)
 
* <strike>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. --[[User:Schrei|Schrei]] 23:54, 23 Aug 2005 (UTC)</strike>
 
** On that note, I <s>vote to '''oppose''' and</s> would like to, ''once again'', bring up my [[Memory_Alpha_talk:Featured_article_nomination_policy#Frivolous_nominations|concerns about frivolous nominations]] made by this user. --[[User:Gvsualan|Alan del Beccio]] 05:34, 24 Aug 2005 (UTC)
 
*** I know it's kind of late in the voting process, but I added a list of references and cleaned up the article in general, so while I vote '''neutral''' because I wrote so much of it, I'd ask that other people '''read the article and cast a vote''' now, because if [[Paradise]] deserves to be featured, I think this one certainly does. --[[User:Schrei|Schrei]] 06:00, 28 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Nominations without objections

Latinum

  • Support: nature decays but latinum lasts forever. BajoranBrouhaha 09:07, 4 Sep 2005 (UTC)
    • Can a quote of the rules be a reason to support? Tobyk777 02:14, 5 Sep 2005 (UTC)

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)
  • Comment, is the teaser really in the correct POV? It does refer to the viewer, and the screen, even if it is sorta POV of 3947. - AJHalliwell 23:47, 2 Sep 2005 (UTC)
    • You know, I read Gv's comment on latinum and I think I just realized how pointless it is to go into play-by-play detail considering it's just a summary - most people have seen the episode, and those who haven't probably aren't looking for a novel. Anyway, I originally kept referring to the camera/3947 as "it" or "the object," but it sounded really awkward, so dunno if there's a way to fix this. --Schrei 00:40, 3 Sep 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)
