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.&ndash; [[User:Eyes Only|''Watching...'']]<sup>[[User Talk:Eyes Only|<span style="color:#00FF00;"> ''listening...''</span>]]</sup> 04:25, 16 February 2008 (UTC)
 
*<s>'''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.</s> -[[User:FleetCaptain|FC]] 21:08, 18 February 2008 (UTC)
 
:I moved the picture up one paragraph and the problem was gone. It also only happened on my home computer; the space was less pronounced on my work terminal. I will change my vote as soon as the other two items are commented upon: 1)no peer review 2)any unresolved talk page issues. -[[User:FleetCaptain|FC]] 19:43, 19 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. &ndash; [[User:Cleanse|Cleanse]] <sup>[[User Talk:Cleanse|<span style="color:#FF6622;">talk</span>]]</sup> 01:51, 19 February 2008 (UTC)
 
:::'''Comment''': I have also looked at the page, and I find no such problem on my screen. --[[User: Rom Ulan| Rom Ulan]] 19:15, 19 February 2008 (UTC)
 
:'''Comment''': I withdraw my Oppose vote but I'm holding off on a support vote as there are a lot of edits going on with this article and sections of it are getting cut and pasted back by various users. Not sure exactly whats going on, but will let the article calm down on the edits and then vote again. -[[User:FleetCaptain|FC]] 18:00, 20 February 2008 (UTC)
 
*'''Oppose'''. Sorry to do this, but in the [http://memory-alpha.org/en/index.php?title=United_Federation_of_Planets&diff=751424&oldid=749440 days since this was nominated] the article has been anything but stable. Lots of material is being re-written, or removed, or added. Even things as simple as they very organization of the article have been altered. The article is simply not in a stable or mature enough state to warrant feature status yet, IMHO. I think this needs to go through a peer review, and then maybe in a week or so come back to nominating it. --[[User:OuroborosCobra|OuroborosCobra]] <sup>[[User Talk:OuroborosCobra|<span style="color:#00FF00;">talk</span>]]</sup> 19:03, 20 February 2008 (UTC)
 
*'''Oppose''': Oppose as well, withdrawing my withdrawl of my original oppose vote. There are way too many edits going on to this article with random cutting and moving of material. No peer review yet either. Article is in flux right now and needs to calm done before being considered for FA status. I recommend withdrawl of the nomination and waiting about 2-3 months after the article has firmed itself up and a peer review has been conducted. -[[User:FleetCaptain|FC]] 22:22, 20 February 2008 (UTC)
 
*'''Oppose''': I have to agree with OuroborosCobra and Fleet Captain, there have just been to many changes over the last few days, as in it hasn't stabilized itself enough to be included as a featured article. Also the not having a peer review doesn't help it that much either.--[[User:UESPArules|UESPA]] 22:56, 20 February 2008 (UTC)
 
 
Hmm... looks like folks have things to add. I see some useful information hase been put in. Very well. I shall '''place the article under peer review''', and '''re-nominate it 2 months from now''. Hmm. Gatting an article to be Featured is harder than I thought. &ndash; [[User:Eyes Only|''Watching...'']]<sup>[[User Talk:Eyes Only|<span style="color:#00FF00;"> ''listening...''</span>]]</sup> 02:39, 21 February 2008 (UTC)

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)
  • Support - I've always liked this page for its extensive background information; but now its even better with a real summary (not a blow by blow recap like on some of our pages).– Cleanse 08:05, 10 February 2008 (UTC)
  • 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 this), and (2) I would have liked to see the "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. -- Taduolus 22:17, 18 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. 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! -- Taduolus 11:27, 16 February 2008 (UTC)
Comment: I've added six or seven new quotes. – Bertaut talk 23:11, 16 February 2008 (UTC)
