*'''Conditional Support''' - I did some sp. edits, but otherwise the article seems really good. I would like to see this picture thing figured out ''before'' we make it featured though. I know it's traditional to have the "last time we saw them" pic at the top, but why not just have a '60s promotional image of him at the top? It's the first thing people think of about Captain Kirk anyway. (Maybe the one with the PADD, but I'd like to see that replaced.) We do do it sometimes, ie: [[Uhura]].

Also: if we can replace any images of "peoples heads" with images of them ''with'' Captain Kirk, that'd improve the article a bit. IE: Janice Rand and Rayna is a persons head, where as the Edith Keeler image is a great example of him actually being involved with said person. And the "2366 and 2367" years have just peoples heads, can't we involve Kirk in'm ala 2368? - [[User:AJHalliwell|AJ Halliwell]] 16:21, 2 August 2006 (UTC)

Well, [[User:Bfgreen|Bfgreen]] added the "Featured Article Candidate" template (and therefore is responsible for the nomination, not me) to the article, but didn't put it here. Being the nice guy that I am, I've done it for him. --[[User:OuroborosCobra|OuroborosCobra]] <sup> [[User Talk:OuroborosCobra|<span style="color:#00FF00;">talk</span></sup>]] [[Image:Klingon Empire logo.png|18px]] 05:53, 23 July 2006 (UTC)
 
*'''Oppose''', as we don't ''really'' know what Starfleet Operations even is. I'll put up the first sentence of the article here:
 
::'''Starfleet Operations''' (also known as '''Fleet Operations''' or '''Fleet Ops''') is a division of [[Starfleet]] based at [[Starfleet Headquarters]] in [[San Francisco]], presumably the branch that oversees the day-to-day running of the fleet.
 
:''Presumadly''. In other words, we are speculating. I also doubt the completeness of the current contents of the article. I am guessing that these names of people are from the dedication plaques. For one thing, shouldn't that fact be noted somewhere? For another, we have seen more dedication plaques than this, so where are the other names?
 
:This article seems far from completion, and doesn't have a real definition of what it even is. This is not what I would consider among MA's best. --[[User:OuroborosCobra|OuroborosCobra]] <sup> [[User Talk:OuroborosCobra|<span style="color:#00FF00;">talk</span></sup>]] [[Image:Klingon Empire logo.png|18px]] 05:53, 23 July 2006 (UTC)
 
 
*'''Oppose'''. It's more of a list than an article, and lists do not make suitable candidates. As it is, it's nowhere close to being "one of the best examples of the Memory Alpha community's work". --[[User:Shran|From Andoria with Love]] 06:26, 23 July 2006 (UTC)

Nominations with objections

James T. Kirk

I'm nominating the large article on James T. Kirk for feature status. It's extensive, well cited, and well illustrated. It's broken down in chronological order and consistent in form and format throughout. It's is definitely deserving of feature status. --Bfgreen 11:37, 24 July 2006 (UTC)

  • Oppose, if you look at the article history, it is in a state of flux at the moment (and that was before the nomination). In addition, I am not happy with the pictures, particularly the first one in the sidebar. All we can see is a silhouette of some person. It needs to be replaced with one of the great shots of Kirk from Star Trek VI, or something. The information on the movies is very lacking, particularly some of the relationships he had then, with very little on Carol Marcus, and nothing on Martia (who only has one sentence on her, and it is under McCoy), and very little about the events of Star Trek V and VI. I am sure if I read in more detail, I can find more problems. This article is long, but it's not ready, and articles don't just get featured because they are long. --OuroborosCobra talk Klingon Empire logo 16:53, 24 July 2006 (UTC)
  • Actually, the image in the sidebar of Kirk's silhouette was a nifty little addition, IMO. It was an image of his famous entrance in Star Trek II. The image kinda gave it that "Here he comes... you know who this is!" quality... if that makes sense. But, yeah... whatever. :P (by the way, that new image of Kirk from STVI? Yeah... that's gotta go, lol! Do you have a better image of him from the film? If not, I might be able to find one...) --From Andoria with Love 19:10, 24 July 2006 (UTC)
  • My opinion of the sidebar is that it should be an image of the character that actually shows the character. As for a better image than what I put up, that was done after spending about 5 minutes trying to find something from Star Trek VI. If you can find a better one, go ahead and upload over mine. --OuroborosCobra talk Klingon Empire logo 20:10, 24 July 2006 (UTC)
  • Support - Admittedly, I worked a lot on this article. I think it covers the all the major bases effectively, and I'm pleased to see it nominated. I do wish there was more to say about Carol Marcus' relationship with Kirk, but from canon sources, there just isn't a whole lot of hard data to use. Other subjects not covered in lenghty detail have links to their appropriate articles. --Aurelius Kirk 20:24, 27 July 2006 (UTC)
  • Support. Looks good. Seems to cover almost everything (although it could use expansion in some areas). Just because an article is still being worked on now and then doesn't mean it doesn't qualify as a featured article, IMO. --From Andoria with Love 18:46, 1 August 2006 (UTC)
  • Support. Well, the article ir pretty good. Revenge 16:05, 2 August 2006 (UTC)
