I have no idea why this article isn't featured. I helped sort it out and add credits. I feel that it's very concise, yet detailed, and exceedingly well organized. Any changes that would need to be made would undoubtedly be minor. --[[User:Werideatdusk|Werideatdusk]]
 
:'''Oppose'''. The article is hardly complete--it still needs more information on the following subjects: his service on board the ''Enterprise''-E (there is very few information about his involvement in the TNG movies), personal interests, relationships (there are no specialized sections detailing his relationships with the other TNG characters). Also, the article needs to be better organized; there are paragraphs about La Forge in alternate timelines in the main article, while they should be under "Alternate timelines", and the article's structure is very much alike to the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geordi_La_Forge Geordi La Forge page on wikipedia]. Finally, I think the "Background information" section is not complete, possibly information about Burton's directing of episodes can be added. [[User:Ottens|Ottens]] 11:45, 24 June 2006 (UTC)
 
::'''Comment'''... Burton's directing information belongs nowhere near the article. That's what [[Levar Burton|his own]] article is for. -- [[User:Sulfur|Sulfur]] 11:50, 24 June 2006 (UTC)
 
::'''Comment'''. Possibly, his directing of TNG episodes featuring the character of La Forge had an effect on how the character was portrayed? I'm not a La Forge-expert, so I wouldn't know; I'm merely saying this is a possibility that needs to be examined. [[User:Ottens|Ottens]] 12:02, 24 June 2006 (UTC)
 
::'''Comment'''. I don't think that the actor's other duties are relevant to one character he portrayed... in any case, I agree there should be more detail about his relationships with the other TNG characters, though he was not a huge component of that aspect of TNG... he hung around with Data but not a lot of focus was ever given to La Forge's friendships. There is not much information about the TNG movies, yes, but again, I don't know what other information there is to add. He had pretty minor roles in all four of the movies, except for his kidnapping in ''Generations'' which is covered well enough. The alternate timeline problems can be fixed immediately. Any other changes, I propose we get to them. This is a strong article. While it does need a bit of help, it's all minor. --[[User:Werideatdusk|Werideatdusk]] 05:50, 25 June 2006 (UTC)

For the character with the single most Trek appearances this article is incredibly detailed and covers every aspect I can think of. It's got extensive quotes and background info, touches on all major relationships and assignments. I can't believe it hasn't been nominated before.

:'''Object'''. Despite being our longest article, it still is not complete. It needs more information on Worf's relationship with Ezri. -- [[User:Jaz|Jaz]] <sup> [[User Talk:Jaz|<span style="color:#9900FF;">talk</span></sup>]][[Image:United Federation of Planets logo.png|28px]] 03:21, 15 June 2006 (UTC)

Several people, including [[User:Defiant|Defiant]], [[User:Vedek Dukat|Vedek Dukat]], [[User:Weyoun|Weyoun]] and [[User:Excelsior|Excelsior]], have done a good job on the page. Informative and well written. -- [[User:Tough Little Ship|Tough Little Ship]] 22:30, 26 May 2006 (UTC)
 
:'''Support''' - Article is well written and covers the topic throughly--[[User:AndreMcKay|AndreMcKay]] 22:39, 26 May 2006 (UTC)
 
:'''Comment''' I could go either way on this one but before I vote I think that it could use a few more pics, and some editing. The paragraph that mentions Miles playing Felix, emphasizing "- yet again", doesn't work because there is no previous mention of his playing Felix. The emphasis doesn't have a precedent. I also think the article could relate the info in a fashion that doesn't emphasize one episode reference after another. [[User:Logan 5|Logan 5]] 23:58, 26 May 2006 (UTC)
 
:'''Object'''. The article could be more comprehensive and better written. For example, the article doesn't even begin with placing the program into context in terms of when it was run. And like above, there is usage of "this time willingly" without a precedent section describing when it wasn't. A rewrite from a consistent point of view might help. And the title of the article itself is presumed by the article to be the title of the series of holonovels, but I do not believe that that has been established anywhere; I think it is simply a convenient way of describing them collectively. I also think that the title should be "Felix's Cold War Secret Agent Holonovels" or some such thing, though, to better describe it. So, a good editorial scrub and renaming would be good places to start fixing this one up. [[User:Aholland|Aholland]] 04:03, 3 June 2006 (UTC)
 
*'''Oppose'''. I think this article could have alot more. The 'gadgets' don't seem to be mentioned at all, such as (this is the only one I remember, but I think there were more) the shoe+pen=gun. I remember a sketch of this from somewhere that would make a great image for the background section. Also, the lone picture on the page is a close up shot of Bashir's head! Not exactly describing the entire program. Mention of his apartment with all the guns (or something that spun from around a bar, i repeat: I haven't seen this episode in quite some time) is missing as well. It could go more indepth (without seeming like an episode summary) in the Our Man Bashir episode, and any more details on the similarities to the 007 movies would make good background as well. This page certainly doesn't seem complete, whether lone featured-article status. - [[User:AJHalliwell|AJ Halliwell]] 12:08, 8 June 2006 (UTC)

Self nomination. Right amount of (relevant) pictures alongside a comprehensive and well balanced write up. --[[User:Gvsualan|Alan del Beccio]] 22:45, 2 June 2006 (UTC)
 
:Not yet decided, but a couple of questions: the article claims that "By 2375, the days of the battle cruiser were winding down, as these warships were described as being too slow and unwieldy compared to many of their more formidable counterparts." It cites [[DS9]]: "[[Once More Unto the Breach]]", yet the dialogue only says "The battle cruisers are too slow and unwieldy for this kind of mission." Meaning that for other missions they were just fine. So how does this support the broad statement? And why is Star Trek: Starship Spotter (not a permitted Memory Alpha resource) used for dimensions when the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Technical Manual (a permitted resource) has the information? If clearly erroneous, I would think that the information would be entirely relegated to background since the Spotter can't really be a cite. Also, there is at least one consistent typo ("its'" instead of "its" in at least two instances) that needs correction, and it should be gone over again for any other such things. [[User:Aholland|Aholland]] 04:03, 3 June 2006 (UTC)
 
:: Seems like a simple solutions to me. Seeing you already have all the answers then go ahead and brunt some of the weight yourself and have at it...this is a collaborative effort, afterall. --[[User:Gvsualan|Alan del Beccio]] 06:52, 3 June 2006 (UTC)
 
:::I didn't want to make broad changes to a nominated article without at least finding out if my suggestions (other than the typos, of course) were way off base. My assumption was that it was nominated because it was thought to be accurate "as is". I'll be happy to give it an edit for the above and anything else I may see in the process - but it won't be this morning! :) [[User:Aholland|Aholland]] 12:50, 3 June 2006 (UTC)
 
:I just made a variety of changes to the article. In addition to typos and the stuff from above, there was other information that was inaccurate or not organized in what I felt was the best way. But given that the article is in great flux, should we wait and see what else (if anything) happens on it before putting it up for nomination? I still haven't voted, but am leaning toward no because of the state it was in and the numerous changes that have been introduced (albeit by me) since its nomination. But take a look and see what I'm talking about. [[User:Aholland|Aholland]] 17:50, 3 June 2006 (UTC)
 
*'''Support'''. Looks great. Very detailed. [[User:Jaz|Jaz]] <sup> [[User Talk:Jaz|<span style="color:#9900FF;">talk</span></sup>]][[Image:United Federation of Planets logo.png|28px]] 20:16, 3 June 2006 (UTC)
 
*'''Support'''. Big time. Love this ship. Great article. Ooh-rah. --[[User:Shran|From Andoria with Love]] 06:24, 6 June 2006 (UTC)
 
*'''Oppose'''. The article is in too much flux. I made a large change to it for a variety of reasons on June 3. Since then no fewer than a dozen changes have been made. Some were minor or formatting, but others added or deleted actual article information (e.g., whether or not they could be called "sleeper ships"). I agree that this is shaping up to be a great article, but it needs to settle down a bit before being featured, I believe. [[User:Aholland|Aholland]] 11:26, 6 June 2006 (UTC)
 
** The only part of the article that is ''truely'' in "flux" is the sidebar info. For all I care the damned sidebar can be removed completely for the sake of this seemingly petty reason to oppose a nomination that otherwise completely ignores the body of the pages content, aside from some very ''minor'' grammarical errors, is in rather solid shape. Afterall, you can only please some of the people some of the time, those who will never be pleased shouldn't be the ones raining on everyone elses parade...--[[User:Gvsualan|Alan del Beccio]] 15:19, 10 June 2006 (UTC)
 
:There have now been even more changes to the article that have little to do with the sidebar data. 23 in total over a week and a half. The question isn't whether a parade is rained on, but simply if the article is stable. That is one of the criteria for featured status. The article is not yet stable; when the size issue is resolved or moved to background and the other editorial changes settle down such that there aren't nearly daily modifications to the article, then I think it would be a good featured article. I do like it; I do think it well done; but let's wait until it stops changing so much. [[User:Aholland|Aholland]] 06:29, 11 June 2006 (UTC)
 
*'''Support'''. Looks great. Very clean, very detailed. --[[User:Werideatdusk|Werideatdusk]] 05:54, 25 June 2006 (UTC)
 
*'''Support'''. It seems to have stabilized. The size has been moved to the background, and the sidebar cleaned up. There was some short debate yesterday about phasers (caused by my own over zealousness), but that ended quickly ''in favor'' of the contents of the article. --[[User:OuroborosCobra|OuroborosCobra]] 06:36, 28 June 2006 (UTC)
 
 
*'''Support''' this should be featured now, the objections have been taken care of. Alan and Aholland do great work together, it's too bad you guys spend so much time trying to get under each others skin. [[User:Jaf|Jaf]] 16:15, 30 June 2006 (UTC)Jaf

Worf

For the character with the single most Trek appearances this article is incredibly detailed and covers every aspect I can think of. It's got extensive quotes and background info, touches on all major relationships and assignments. I can't believe it hasn't been nominated before. Logan 5 17:24, 14 June 2006 (UTC)

Object. Despite being our longest article, it still is not complete. It needs more information on Worf's relationship with Ezri. -- Jaz talkUnited Federation of Planets logo 03:21, 15 June 2006 (UTC)
