Nominations without objections

Battle of the Mutara Nebula

Technically this isn't a self-nomination as I only contributed to part of this article but I think that this article is now up there with the other featured battle articles. --Scimitar 00:44, 26 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Battle of Veridian III

(Self nomination) Comparatively speaking, this is one of the minor battles but I think that I made a good effort with writing this article.--Scimitar 00:44, 26 Aug 2005 (UTC)

The Wire

Self nomination. I love this episode, so I tried to give it FA-level quality. --Schrei 06:01, 22 Aug 2005 (UTC)

  • Support Another great DS9 season two episode article by Schrei. A good summary, pictures, background information and quotes. Tough Little Ship 11:31, 22 Aug 2005 (UTC)
  • Support You're right this is another great episode by Schrei. In fact I think that he writes these summaries so well that he already has 2 in featured status. Keep it up Schrei. If everyone were as miticolous as the way you wrtie these articles our database would be full with every fact Trek has to offer in no time! Tobyk777 23:31, 23 Aug 2005 (UTC)
  • Support. I corrected a couple of spelling errors but this article is superb. You certainly went out of your way to write this article and I enjoyed the episode very much too. I wrote the articles for "Timescape" and "A Matter of Perspective" as well as I possibly could for the same reason - I really enjoyed the episodes.--Scimitar 00:20, 24 Aug 2005 (UTC)
  • Support. Again, well written article. Fixed some spellings, but yeah, great article. (unrel.) The first picture kinda reminds me of Audrid Dax, or at least Quark while he was Audrid Dax... - AJHalliwell 03:49, 25 Aug 2005 (UTC)
  • I read your edit summary, and for the record, unenthused is a word. :P --Schrei 06:12, 25 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Nominations with objections

The Collaborator

A great summary, with good quotea and backround info. Tobyk777 22:54, 23 Aug 2005 (UTC)

  • Toby, I appreciate the fact that you like the article, but it's clearly missing a list of references. I might add it when I'm online later tonight, but in the meantime, based on the nominations of this article and These are the Voyages, I think you need to start reading the entire article before nominating/voting. --Schrei 23:54, 23 Aug 2005 (UTC)
  • On that note, I vote to oppose and would like to, once again, bring up my concerns about frivolous nominations made by this user. --Alan del Beccio 05:34, 24 Aug 2005 (UTC)

These Are the Voyages...

Another fully complete episode article. Tobyk777 22:56, 23 Aug 2005 (UTC)

  • Oppose. The article is very much still in progress; half the episode is missing! -- SmokeDetector47 // talk 23:36, 23 Aug 2005 (UTC)
  • Oppose. Fully complete? With Acts Three and Four missing I'd hardly call the article complete. It'll probably have my support when it is complete, assuming that the standards of the remaining Acts match up to the previous ones but there's no chance of me supporting a well and truly incomplete article.--Scimitar 00:10, 24 Aug 2005 (UTC)
  • Oppose. Tobyk, if your going to list one of the reasons your nominating an article specifically as "fully complete", please confirm the article as fully complete. As there is clearly some "Act 4", etc.'s at the bottom, I'm guessing you didn't read the article. No offense implied, but please do so in the future. - AJHalliwell 00:28, 24 Aug 2005 (UTC)
  • Comment. To add to that further as we've already discussed, completeness does not always warrant featured status. "Force of Nature" is arguably a complete article but the debate over suitable image use has doomed it not to get featured status.--Scimitar 00:39, 24 Aug 2005 (UTC)
  • Oppose. Defiant and myself are still in the progress of writing the episode's summary. Also, many pics are still needed. The article is nowhere near ready for a nomination and is nowhere near complete. --From Andoria with Love 03:16, 24 Aug 2005 (UTC)
  • Sorry about this one guys, while nominating I typed in the wrong episode. Won't happen again. Tobyk777 00:26, 25 Aug 2005 (UTC)

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)
  • Comment: As pointed out above, the article is incomplete. If it were complete, however, if would feature information on every single bridge that ever appeared on Star Trek. Of most "bridges", however, we only saw a captain's face and some background console, or merely a chair with a console behind it. Most alien-of-the-week bridges are not worth mentioning, and if they would be, the bridge article would be the nr.1 longest article at MA.
  • As it is, however, some things I think should yet be added: more on Dominion, Cardassian, Ferengi, and Andorian bridge design. If available, more information on Starfleet vessels, such as the bridges of the Miranda and the Nebula classes. And more info on bridges from the Mirror Universe, which should be fun to do. I think I'll continue working on this article either today or tomorrow, and add more on the Mirror Universe and Andorian bridges. I don't remember seeing a Cardassian bridge on screen, so I won't be able to add info about that. I'll see what I can find about Ferengi bridges... Ottens 12:29, 22 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)

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)
