===[[V'Ger]]===
 
I worked to expand this article extensively, adding a lot of information, as well as background material. [[User:Ottens|Ottens]] 17:33, 7 Nov 2005 (UTC)
 
:<s>'''Oppose''' for now. I'd like to support this article because it's one of my favorite Trek concepts, but I think it's incomplete right now. There isn't much information regarding its threat to Earth and narrow escape, there's no mention of the fact that V'Ger was not satisfied just getting an answer from the creator but wanted to physically join with the creator and forced this to happen. There's also no indication of Decker's love for Ilia being one of the reasons he joined with V'Ger, and in reference to the size of the construct I particularly like McCoy's assesement that it could hold a crew of tens of thousands, or a crew of thousands 10 miles tall. Also, the content needs to be a little better organized. Specifically, there is some information in "at the heart of V'Ger" that really belongs in the re-programming section and the background info is great but exceedingly long and hard to get through so I think some sub-headers or other separators there would be a big benefit. [[User:Logan 5|Logan 5]] 20:00, 7 Nov 2005 (UTC)</s>
 
::'''Support'''. I tried to address a lot of my own objections. I don't know if this keeps the article from being ''stable'' but I think it's good now. [[User:Logan 5|Logan 5]] 20:33, 16 Nov 2005 (UTC)
 
 
:'''Support'''. Perhaps the background section can be broken down into two parts, or simply remove the sub-header. Other than that, I really like what I see here. --[[User:Vedek Dukat|Vedek Dukat]] <sup> [[User talk:Vedek Dukat|<span style="color:red">Talk</span>]] | [[User:Vedek Dukat/Episodes|<span style="color:gold;">Duty Roster</span>]]</sup> 20:08, 20 Nov 2005 (UTC)

===[[Star Trek: Nemesis]]===
 
A good, short summary with interesting and extensive background information. --[[User:Defiant|Defiant]] | [[User talk:Defiant|''Talk'']] 15:12, 18 Nov 2005 (UTC)
 
*Why is there a link to http://www.linux.org ? It seems unrelated to Star Trek, since a "Linux and Star Trek" link like the one below it is far more relevant. I haven't read over the article yet, but other than that, it looks good at a glance. --[[{{ns:user}}:Vedek Dukat|Vedek Dukat]] <sup> [[User talk:Vedek Dukat|<span style="color:green">''Talk''</span>]] | [[User:Vedek Dukat/Episodes|<span style="color:red;">''Duty Roster''</span>]]</sup> 15:46, 18 Nov 2005 (UTC)
 
**I noticed that too. Someone's doing a little religious ('cause that's how strongly they feel about it) proseltyzing. Plus, the article needs a little format fixing. --[[User:9er|9er]] 19:25, 18 Nov 2005 (UTC)
 
*OK, I cleaned up some formatting, added links, and smoothed out some writing in the summary. But for now I have to vote '''Oppose'''. The summary needs a little bit more about Shinzon's motives. And the first mention of his plan to '''kill all humans''' comes a bit too late in the summary. It reads like ''whoah, where'd that come from?''. If that's fixed I can support this. --[[User:9er|9er]] 21:33, 18 Nov 2005 (UTC)
 
**The background information is superb but I think a great deal more can be written. Shinzon's explanation of his being cloned could be expanded further and there is practically no mention of the meeting that Picard and Shinzon had on Romulus or the possibility of friendship in the future. I don't expect the main article for the Battle of the Bassen Rift to be re-iterated into the article but the battle could be expanded. I think the collision is horribly understated as well. It just says the collision caused damage to both ships - If I drove into another car at 5mph, it'd cause damage to both cars but two vessels weighing millions of tonnes apiece will cause more than just "damage" if they collide, especially with one of them going at full impulse. In reference to when the bridge was almost destroyed, I always thought that people are ''blown out'' into space rather than sucked out? '''Oppose'''--[[User:Scimitar|Scimitar]] 12:52, 28 Nov 2005 (UTC)
 
 
===[[Shuttlepod (22nd century)]]===
 
An informative article with helpful pictures. --[[User:Defiant|Defiant]] | [[User talk:Defiant|''Talk'']] 23:56, 7 Nov 2005 (UTC)
 
*'''Comment''' I'd like to see it expanded just a little before supporting. Specifically, I'd like to see a reference to the Shuttle's use during the Terra Prime incident. And is there any info on this type of shuttlepod being used by ''Columbia'' that we can cite to bolster the evidence for this being a more widely used craft? [[User:Logan 5|Logan 5]] 01:27, 8 Nov 2005 (UTC)
 
* '''Oppose pending question.''' Shouldn't a lot of the information and events described in the '''History''' section be transferred to the individual shuttlepod's pages? The information in that section that pertains to shuttlepods ''in general'' seems to be limited to '''(1)''' how their function is affected by adverse weather ("[[Strange New World]]"), '''(2)''' their capacity for taking medium-to-large-arms projectile weapons fire ("[[Storm Front]]"), '''(3)''' their possession of transponders ("[[Storm Front]]"), '''(4)''' and the unique design of shuttlepod ''[[NC-05]]'' ("[[Home]]"). I would think that these bits of information should be added to the article as being indicative of this design of shuttlepods in general; and the rest of the "action logs" be cut and moved to the shuttlepod to which the events can be attributed. — '''[[User:pd_THOR|<span style="color:#CC0000;">THOR</span>]]''' <sup>[[User_talk:pd_THOR|<span style="color:#FF9933;">''=/\=''</span>]]</sup> 19:04, 18 Nov 2005 (UTC)

You could be right (and if I had to bet I'd say you are) but it would be helpful to have the names of a few of those episodes. Also, discussion page notes another user who has researched just that. Logan 5 01:51, 3 Dec 2005 (UTC)
