===[[Krenim temporal weapon ship]]===
 
I do not know if I am placing this in the right spot on this page, since nobody has even voted on it yet. But I would like to nominate the article [[Krenim temporal weapon ship]]. I re-wrote it late last year. I tried to create a concise, clear, totally encyclopedic, comprehensively informative piece, in much the same vein as [[Borg-Species 8472 War]].

:'''Comment''': Not bad. Could benefit from some pictures and discussion of the interior layout. It is unfortunate that there is no background info. Was anything worth noting stated in [[Star Trek: The Magazine]] or some other publication? Couldn't hurt to have a picture or two of some crew members as well. -- [[User:Connor Cabal|Connor Cabal]] 14:43, 9 February 2008 (UTC)
 
 
Update: Added more images and a bit more structure. Unfortuntely there is no information regarding the vessel's layout (Stsr Trek magazine is not, I believe, a [[canon]] source, and the only two crewmembers known for certain are [[Annorax]] and [[Obrist]].&ndash; [[User:Eyes Only|''Watching...'']]<sup>[[User Talk:Eyes Only|<span style="color:#00FF00;"> ''listening...''</span>]]</sup> 19:10, 9 February 2008 (UTC)
 
 
::It's not a canon source, but it is good for production behind the scenes stuff. And I think that's what Connor was suggesting. -- [[User:Sulfur|Sulfur]] 19:22, 9 February 2008 (UTC)
 
::: The layout is not the best, having a whole section for the crew, just to say that there are only two known members and then a gallery of the two taking a big gouge out of the top of the page does not bode well in the aesthetics dept. --[[User:Gvsualan|Alan del Beccio]] 05:27, 10 February 2008 (UTC)
 
:Thanks for the suggestion. Fixed accordingly. Please tell me what else, though perhaps it is better to do so on my talk page than here.&ndash; [[User:Eyes Only|''Watching...'']]<sup>[[User Talk:Eyes Only|<span style="color:#00FF00;"> ''listening...''</span>]]</sup> 15:00, 10 February 2008 (UTC)
 
:::I still honestly think that it needs a good <nowiki>{{peer review}}</nowiki>. The level of writing needs to be gotten up to par. I've made a few cosmetic changes, but I have not see the episode in some time to make the proper upgrades to the article that seem to be missing, such as Tom and Chakotay's involvement and time aboard the ship. --[[User:Gvsualan|Alan del Beccio]] 20:26, 10 February 2008 (UTC)
 
 
'''Withdrawing nomination...for now'''. In keeping with suggestions, I have put the article up for peer review. Please contribute if you can.

:*'''Support''' - Great article, with nice use of images and a detailed, well-researched Background section. Obviously an '''enormous''' amount of work has gone into this, and it '''absolutely''' deserves to be recognised. Two very, very, very minor issues that in no way lessen my opinion that this should be a Featured Article, but I thought I'd mention them anyway just to bring this article closer to perfection, as it were: (1) The image of Data locking out the main computer in the summary is rather nondescript, and I would have liked a more memorable image here (perhaps something like [http://homepage.ntlworld.com/amm0405/scream.jpg this]), and (2) I would have liked to see the [[Template:PicOfTheDay/18 July|"Assimilate this!"]] image added just before Act 3 in the summary (particularly because at the moment the only page that links to that image is the PotD template for 18 July). Anyway, like I said, they are very minor issues and regardless I '''support''' the nomination. -- [[User:Taduolus|Taduolus]] 22:17, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

:'''Support''': I was one of the major contributors to this article, but it has been edited and re-worked extensively by many others since I worked on it and I think it's a pretty damned good candidate for a Featured Article now. The article is long and detailed, well written and informative, with a particularly thorough Background Info section and a good selection of appropriate, high-quality pictures. One minor point: I think a couple of extra memorable quotes could be added, and the rather unmemorable one about the Prophets finding quarters for Admiral Rifkin could be removed. Aside from that, support support support! -- [[User:Taduolus|Taduolus]] 11:27, 16 February 2008 (UTC)

Nominations without objections

Star Trek: First Contact

A concise, informative summary with extensive quotes and background information sections. --Defiant 14:53, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

  • Support, obviously i like this page. however i don't agree that some of the quotes noted are memorable (particularly the first) and wonder about the necessity of the merchandise gallery. also some of the notes seem more trivial than appropriate, but i'll leave that up to others to decide. - Deevolution 21:49, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

"Rapture"

This is the first time I've nominated something, but I have read through the requirements, and this article seems to have everything necessary: a thorough and well written summary, excellent use of images, well chosen quotes, a very detailed background section, and a good reference section. I've looked at a lot of other DS9 episode that are featured (such as "Tribunal", "The Collaborator" and "Call to Arms"), and "Rapture" seems at least on a par with them – Bertaut talk 16:40, 15 February 2008 (UTC)

Support: I was one of the major contributors to this article, but it has been edited and re-worked extensively by many others since I worked on it and I think it's a pretty damned good candidate for a Featured Article now. The article is long and detailed, well written and informative, with a particularly thorough Background Info section and a good selection of appropriate, high-quality pictures.

Nominations with objections

United Federation of Planets

I have rewritten it acording to conventional encyclopedic style used on articles about countries: its size and location, governmental structure, economy and history highlights. I hope it is suitable.– Watching... listening... 04:25, 16 February 2008 (UTC)

Oppose (for now): There is a spacing error that occurs after the section "The Legislature" due to the way that the pictures are placed. On my browser, a fifth of the page is blank before the next section starts. Also I am concerned that there has really been no "flushing out" of this article with talk page comments confined to general syntax but no discussion of major plot areas. No peer review was conducted that I could find although that alone is not a reason for denial. My main objection is due to the spacing error becuase of the picture placement. -FC 21:08, 18 February 2008 (UTC)
Comment: there's no spacing problem on my screen. Nonetheless, this issue should be resolved because it likely affects other users. FleetCaptain, perhaps you should play around with the pic placement until it looks fine on your screen. – Cleanse talk 01:51, 19 February 2008 (UTC)
