'''Self nomination''': After I've majorly expanded and rewritten this article, I started a peer review in July 08. The first attempt to get it featured a couple of months ago was not successful, however. Nevertheless, the article has further matured and grown over the months and I've addressed all mentioned issues. I think it's finally ready to take the test... --[[User:36ophiuchi|36ophiuchi]] 00:11, 10 January 2009 (UTC)
 
 
Needing some feedback please ;-) --[[User:36ophiuchi|36ophiuchi]] 21:36, 12 January 2009 (UTC)
 
*'''Support'''. Well written and informative article. – [[User:ThomasHL|Tom]] 11:47, 18 January 2009 (UTC)
 
 
*'''Support'''. A good article. Links lots of stuff together. --[[User:Pseudohuman|Pseudohuman]] 14:16, 18 January 2009 (UTC)
 
*'''Comments''': Needs some touch-ups. It's definitely a good start, and while I corrected several formatting/spelling issues, to me it looks like it needs a good peer review (by Renegade54, Sulfur or Shran) to correct some other little things I've noticed (redundant links, grammar, formatting, several piped links that hide key terms that should be more visible). I don't have a lot of time this afternoon to implement this, but I do have a few suggestions for expansion, organization: 1) I am unsure if it is really necessary to get so ''in-depth'' with the Temporal Cold War/Xindi thing. A lot of that is/belongs in the [[Earth history]] page, or perhaps in the prehistory, such as the friction it caused between Archer and the Vulcans for not helping, and the Andorians misdirected attempt to assist Earth while at the same time serving their own needs. 2) I also think something could be added about the [[Polaric Test Ban Treaty]] and the [[Neutral Zone Treaty]]/[[Nimbus III]] experiment in the 23rd century, in terms of relations with the Romulans, as that information seems to be lacking from both here and the [[UFP|main article]]. 3) Other notes: Nothing about their involvement in the Klingon Civil War; a bit more could be said on the first contact between the Dominion and Federation surrounding {{DS9|The Jem'Hadar|The Search, Part I|The Search, Part II}}; and finally (for now), there is a complete lack of reference to the [[Maquis]], a group that created something of a schism in the Federation. --[[User:Gvsualan|Alan]] 18:03, 18 January 2009 (UTC)
 
:Thanks a lot Alan for your comments. Actually there is a [[Talk:Federation history/peerreview|peer review of the article]] which I've already added in July 2008... As you can see it went unnoticed like so many peer reviews... The only place constructive criticism is issued seems to be here... As for the grammar bit: Although I'd tend to say that I'm more or less fluent in English, I'd definitely prefer a native speaker having a look on the article again. --[[User:36ophiuchi|36ophiuchi]] 18:53, 18 January 2009 (UTC)
 
:Adressed items 1) and 2) on your list so far. The [[Neutral Zone Treaty]] is hard to include in such a historical article, as we do not know when it was signed, by whom or what its exact content was. --[[User:36ophiuchi|36ophiuchi]] 19:49, 18 January 2009 (UTC)
 
*'''Comment'''. This is a minor issue, but the section "The future" needs to be rethought. According to our [[MA:POV|point of view]] all of those events are actually in the past. And the first paragraph in that section seems like speculation. Perhaps rewrite that first paragraph, move it under the "24th century" header, then rename "The future" section to something like "25th century and beyond"?– [[User:Cleanse|Cleanse]] 00:27, 19 January 2009 (UTC)
 
:I've killed the speculative paragraph and renamed the section "26th to 31st century" as this is actually the time covered by it. --[[User:36ophiuchi|36ophiuchi]] 13:38, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

James T. Kirk (alternate reality)

Self nomination: I nominate this article after building it on Memory Alpha and Memory Beta. I see this article as well bit and fit to the terms of the Memory Alpha standards. Roger Murtaugh 06:28, 9 May 2009 (UTC)

Strong oppose The article is a mess of tenses, has far too informal a tone, is nowhere near complete, and will not be stable in any sense for months, if that. I'm sorry, but it's nowhere near featured status at this time. -- Michael Warren | Talk 06:44, 9 May 2009 (UTC)
Strong oppose. Full agreement here, it will take some time until articles from the new movie can be featured. I wouldn't expect that until the DVD/Blu-ray release of the movie, so proper screenshots can be added. --Jörg 06:46, 9 May 2009 (UTC)
Oppose, for reasons stated above. --From Andoria with Love 06:48, 9 May 2009 (UTC)
Oppose: The article's obviously been worked on, but it's still rather small, considering that Kirk was the star of a film. There's no background section, the images seem off (especially not a very good lead image), and there's a lack of pertinent information from the sidebar and article. Also, the lack of a background section and messed up formatting (no categories, bad tenses, et cetera) are all added in its favor. It's way, way too soon (2.5 hrs) for a featured article from the film, but you have guts for trying. It's currently one of the more complete articles from the film and will only get better in the coming weeks.--Tim Thomason 06:52, 9 May 2009 (UTC)
It's a good start, and by all means, please continue working on it - but as has already been stated, articles being "featured" should be complete, have undergone serious community editing, and should be stable. All of this is obviously not the case here, so oppose for the moment. -- Cid Highwind 12:15, 9 May 2009 (UTC)
