*'''WHY ARE WE ALL SHOUTING!''' :-p. '''Support'''. Nice summary, nicely illustrated, nice quotes, detailed background info with citations. In regards to red links, I don't think that the existence of these in an article should be a bar to being FA. Unless it's a link that needs fixing (admittedly like one here) or is inappropriate, it reflects absolutely nothing on the quality of the article itself. On the contrary, if the article becomes an FA hopefully more people will see the red links and fill in the gaps.– [[User:Cleanse|Cleanse]] 02:27, 3 June 2008 (UTC)

===[[Assimilation]]===
 
I stumbled across this article and was highly impressed. Comprehensive and well-written. This article was previously nominated in 2005 - [[Talk:Assimilation|See here]], where the problem was a lack of in-line citations. This has since been resolved and the article is very well-cited.– [[User:Cleanse|Cleanse]] 11:00, 3 June 2008 (UTC)
 
 
*'''Support'''. Well written and cited.--[[User:31dot|31dot]] 13:06, 3 June 2008 (UTC)
 
 
*'''XXXXX''': Appears to be only 3 pictures in the entire article. I feel an FA should have much more. Also there appear to be unresolved talk page issues from a previous FA nomination back in 2006. For that matter, the talk page itself needs to be cleaned up with a lot of stray sections and un-organized comments at that the top of the talk page (not that this would be a main reason for not supporting it but just as an after-thought). -[[User:FleetCaptain|FC]] 14:55, 3 June 2008 (UTC)
 
::Are there any pictures in particular that you would suggest? I would be open to that, but care needs to be taken that any other pictures aren't just fluff.--[[User:31dot|31dot]] 15:10, 3 June 2008 (UTC)
 
:I'm not Borging much these days :-) but I'm sure we can find something. Maybe Picard on the table for Best of Both Worlds or that scene from First Contact where he gets his eye poked. -[[User:FleetCaptain|FC]] 15:43, 3 June 2008 (UTC)
 
:'''Change vote to Support''': Excellent gallery which was added. -[[User:FleetCaptain|FC]] 17:21, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
 
*'''Support'''. Well written and citations from the various episodes and films. I've added two images to this article. – [[User:ThomasHL|Tom]] 22:32, 3 June 2008 (UTC)
 
::I've fixed up the talk page and noticed a very good point. It was suggested in 2005 that the article could benefit from a type of gallery of pictures which show the various stages of assimilation from start to finish. I think thats a great idea since, apart from the first picture, all the pictures are of the very first stage when a person gets stuck in the neck. I'd probably change my vote when and if such a gallery could be added with matching descriptions. -[[User:FleetCaptain|FC]] 22:48, 3 June 2008 (UTC)
 
 
* Unfortunately I do not have the time to find pictures for such a gallery (end of semester exams), but if someone could do so it would be greatly appreciated. It would be a shame for this very comprehensive, well-written in-universe article to lapse because of a mere lack of illustration. Because that's all there is. All other issues have been resolved. – [[User:Cleanse|Cleanse]] 08:47, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
 
 
* I added a gallery with what pictures I could find here at MA. I would have liked to include an image of [[Phlox]] in one of his stages of assimilation, but couldn't find any. I also '''support''' it's nomination. ----[[User:Mainphramephreak|<span style="color:#00FFFF;"> '''Willie'''</span>]]<sup>[[User Talk:Mainphramephreak|<span style="color:#FF7000;"> '''LLAP'''</span>]]</sup> 15:58, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
 
:Great work! &ndash; [[User:Cleanse|Cleanse]] 23:52, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
 
*'''Support''' - This has been improved drastically and I think it now deserves FA status. [[User:TrekFan|TrekFan]] 01:26, 6 June 2008 (UTC)
 
*'''Update:''' I uploaded and created a second gallery following the implant that appears on [[Seven of Nine]] in the [[mess hall]] from {{VOY|The Raven}}. Hope that helps the article and that it is not "too much." ----[[User:Mainphramephreak|<span style="color:#00FFFF;"> '''Willie'''</span>]]<sup>[[User Talk:Mainphramephreak|<span style="color:#FF7000;"> '''LLAP'''</span>]]</sup> 00:10, 7 June 2008 (UTC)

Endgame (episode)

I would like to suggest that this article be put up for nomination as it has a detailed summary, lots of quotes and a relevant background information. There doesn't seem to be much more that can be added to it. TrekFan 17:34, 31 May 2008 (UTC)

  • SUPPORT (Provisionally): There are three red links in the co-star section. I think the main body of the article and the sub-sections should all link to existing articles (note that this does not include the references section at the very bottom which also has several red links). I support this so long as those three red links are turned towards existing articles, even just stubs. -FC 22:01, 1 June 2008 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT. It is refreshing to have a Featured Article nomination that isn't a self-nomination. I have been watching this article for over a year since I made a comment on the talk page and it has come a long way in that time. I have fixed the links as Fleet Captain suggested. Definitely deserving article! – Topher 02:21, 2 June 2008 (UTC)
  • SUPPORT I wrote the summary. I'm very glad it meets with such approval. I thank those who have contributed further to it. – Watching... listening... 02:05, 3 June 2008 (UTC)
  • WHY ARE WE ALL SHOUTING! :-p. Support. Nice summary, nicely illustrated, nice quotes, detailed background info with citations. In regards to red links, I don't think that the existence of these in an article should be a bar to being FA. Unless it's a link that needs fixing (admittedly like one here) or is inappropriate, it reflects absolutely nothing on the quality of the article itself. On the contrary, if the article becomes an FA hopefully more people will see the red links and fill in the gaps.– Cleanse 02:27, 3 June 2008 (UTC)
