Nominations without objections

The Wire

Self nomination. I love this episode, so I figured it's worthy of FA-level quality. --Schrei 06:01, 22 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Paradise

A very detailed episode summary with good backround info, and memorable quotes. All in all, everything needed in an espisode article. Tobyk777 02:24, 18 Aug 2005 (UTC) * I'd like someone familiar with MA to address a question I asked concerning this article before anyone votes on it. Thanks. --Schrei 03:59, 18 Aug 2005 (UTC)

  • I converted my analysis into background information, so I'll say neutral since I wrote about 95% of the article. --Schrei 03:06, 19 Aug 2005 (UTC)
  • Support There is a good summary there, plus the pictures and background information. Tough Little Ship 21:17, 20 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Storm Front, Part II

  • Self-nomination. The concluding episode in the "Storm Front" two-parter. --Defiant | Talk 21:07, 17 Aug 2005 (UTC)
  • Support Tobyk777 23:49, 17 Aug 2005 (UTC)
  • Comment. You write great articles (once again, no vote from me on account of not seeing it) and I'm sure this will be featured, but I think you might want to break up some of the paragraphs. In particular act three, paragraph one looks awfully long. I think this is because you alot one paragraph per scene, which is a good policy, but doesn't have to be absolute. --Schrei 17:32, 18 Aug 2005 (UTC)
  • Looks good to me. Support. -Platypus Man 17:37, 18 Aug 2005 (UTC)
  • After a few very minor tweaks, it now has my full Support. An excellent article. --From Andoria with Love 04:16, 19 Aug 2005 (UTC)
  • Support, although the image of Daniels right on top of Earth, and then going over that line annoys me. Not that it needs to be fixed or anything, it just does. - AJHalliwell 05:19, 19 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Nominations with objections

Bridge

A HUGE!! article with info about every (Major) bridge encountered in star Trek. I think this is as complete as it can get, it beyond being long enough, and provides many obscure details many people would not know. (That's what I like about MA perosnaly, the info that no other site has becuase it's so small.) Tobyk777 06:54, 21 Aug 2005 (UTC)

  • Comment. I have no right to vote on this and haven't read the article yet, but after seeing the nomination for Kes below, I think you should double check the completeness - no offense. --Schrei 07:05, 21 Aug 2005 (UTC)
  • Oppose. I agree that the article is very extensive with some really good background information but it is still incomplete. Details of bridge layouts of the Miranda and Nebula classes are available but practically none of it is mentioned in this article. I also think that a bit on Cardassian and Ferengi bridge design could be included and I'm sure that someone could add more to the mere paragraph on the Dominion vessels too. To add to that further, there is no information about bridges in alternate timelines such as the Enterprise-D in "Yesterday's Enterprise" or the ISS Enterprise NX-01 in "In a Mirror, Darkly". I'm sure that a few months ago, when the criteria for featured status were less stringent, this article would be featured but now an article on such a big topic will have to go above and beyond the call of duty and at the moment, this article doesn't. If there's an article written on something that features or is referenced to in 95-99% of the Star Trek episodes (except for DS9 - Operations center), I'd expect it to be close to complete to be featured. --Scimitar 10:38, 21 Aug 2005 (UTC)
  • Oppose. I don't see anything on the ones listed above, or the Andorian bridge, or many of the numerous aliens on Voyager. Now that I think about it, this page sounds like it'd go on forever, but for completeness it might have to I supose. "Bridge design of other species" only lists 3! I know we can do better then that. The hirogen's big bridge with those spheres, and the Kazon (from "Initiations" I think) come to mind. - AJHalliwell 13:58, 21 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Henry Starling

  • Self-nomination. I worked on this for quite some time over the course of two or so weeks; I really think it qualifies as a FA inductee. — THOR 22:24, 16 Aug 2005 (UTC)
  • Neutral This article, although well written barely qualifies lenth-wise. Also, Starling is a minor Character who only appears in one episode. (But is was a 2 parter so it could qualifiy as 2). Also, in this article there are many red links. But since this is an article high in quality, (Which people have said appears to be more important than quality in FA status) i do nethier oppose nor support Tobyk777 03:59, 17 Aug 2005 (UTC)
    • It should be noted that I don't believe most of those are policy-backed complaints. Nominations are not judged by number of appearances (as the ever quoted Grathon Tolar, the Exocomp, Tuvix and Telek R'Mor are all featured's that appeared in only one episode). And minor characters are embraced at MA, Ayala, Ethan Novakovich and Tal Celes are all featured. And I don't believe the number of red-links relates to an articles quality, as those are not the links being called into question. - AJHalliwell 04:27, 17 Aug 2005 (UTC)
  • Comment. I can't vote since I've never seen it, but this made me want to watch the episode. Is there a way to make it a little longer? That might be all there is to the character, but it does seem a little short. Other than that, I like it. --Schrei 04:24, 17 Aug 2005 (UTC)
  • Neutral It's missing something, and I'm not sure what. Something about it's structure or lack of creativity...it's just not standing out for me. --Alan del Beccio 08:33, 18 Aug 2005 (UTC)
  • I also agree with Gv', it's missing something. It seems to "the duty" and not nessesarily "above and beyond the call of duty". Also, as no one's supported (or objected, we just seem to be group commenting on it...) I don't believe this can get featured status yet. - AJHalliwell 21:03, 19 Aug 2005 (UTC)
  • Mild Oppose I think there are some more things to tell about Henry Starling. See the article talk page. -- Q 20:23, 20 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Kes

I think it's all there. It's long enough and is well written. Tobyk777 19:16, 19 Aug 2005 (UTC)

  • Strongly Oppose. This doesn't say alot about her relationship with Neelix, and it doesn't mention ANYTHING about the events of VOY: "Elogium" where she went through the Elogium and had to decide whether she was ready for a child (etc.) It seems character's articles should reflect "Kes episodes", as there weren't a great deal. Also, information regarding her feelings about Paris and Neelix fighting over her (Parturition) seem to be missing. - AJHalliwell 21:03, 19 Aug 2005 (UTC)
