Nominations without objections

Add new nominations on top, one section per nomination.

Star Trek: The Motion Picture

User:Ottens has created a very detailed and well illustrated summary/article about TMP. --BlueMars 18:42, Jul 1, 2004 (CEST)

Q (June 29)

Self-nomination. Another lengthy biography about everyone's favorite superpowerful being! -- Dan Carlson 17:40, 29 Jun 2004 (CEST)

  • Seconded. I think you have covered all relevant episods extensively. Good refences too. -- Redge 22:04, 29 Jun 2004 (CEST)
  • Seconded. Ottens 12:39, 1 Jul 2004 (CEST)

Sovereign class (June 28)

Self-nomination. I think it's quite good. ;) Ottens 12:36, 28 Jun 2004 (CEST)

  • Seconded. Very good work, but it still needs lots of additional pictures, IMO. -- Redge 12:51, 28 Jun 2004 (CEST)
  • Support. But there are already plenty of images... don't go overboard, please! -- Dan Carlson 16:18, 28 Jun 2004 (CEST)
I checked back and almost all pictures I was looking for are now there. Thanks! -- Redge 16:36, 28 Jun 2004 (CEST)

Battle of Sector 001 (June 28)

After DarkHorizon performed some major rewriting on the article and after i added some pics (Sorry DarkHorizon!), i'd say this looks like a featured article to me... --BlueMars 00:12, Jun 28, 2004 (CEST)

  • Support, of course. -- Michael Warren 00:45, 28 Jun 2004 (CEST)
  • Support. I just finished some minor editing on this myself. -- Dan Carlson 02:12, 28 Jun 2004 (CEST)
  • Support. I get the feeling there are still things to be said in this article, but the bulk of it is ready. And done fairly quickly and well, I might add. My compliments. -- Redge 11:22, 28 Jun 2004 (CEST)
  • Seconded. Good work, Ottens 11:28, 28 Jun 2004 (CEST)

Shinzon (June 27)

Self-nomination. I just finished rewriting the article, and IMO it's a good summary of one of Trek's most personal villains. -- Dan Carlson 20:12, 27 Jun 2004 (CEST)

  • Seconded. Are you the only one writing Featured Article here? :P Ottens 21:54, 27 Jun 2004 (CEST)
  • Seconded, although we should reimplement the sidebar with quickinfo. --BlueMars 00:33, Jun 28, 2004 (CEST)
  • Seconded. I agree with BlueMars. -- Redge 11:22, 28 Jun 2004 (CEST)
    • As I already explained to BlueMars, I removed the sidebar because it was IMO superfluous. All of the information was provided in the first sentence (or at most the first paragraph) of the article. It just wasn't necessary in my eyes. -- Dan Carlson 16:31, 28 Jun 2004 (CEST)

Doomsday machine (June 27)

Self-nomination. A fairly long and detailed article about one of the best TOS episodes there was. -- Dan Carlson 17:01, 10 Jun 2004 (CEST)

Battle of the Bassen Rift (June 26)

Self-nomination. A couple of Archivists made a great start for this article, and I did a major rewrite of this big battle from Nemesis. -- Dan Carlson 20:27, 26 Jun 2004 (CEST)

  • Seconded. -- Redge 20:33, 26 Jun 2004 (CEST)
  • Seconded. Very good article! Ottens 21:54, 27 Jun 2004 (CEST)
  • Seconded. --BlueMars 00:33, Jun 28, 2004 (CEST)
  • Support. -- Michael Warren 00:45, 28 Jun 2004 (CEST)

Search for the Xindi superweapon (June 26)

Formerly nominated (sorta) as Xindi War. IMO Steve Mollman did a great job of reworking this article into a comprehensive summary of ENT's whole mission in the Expanse. -- Dan Carlson 20:27, 26 Jun 2004 (CEST)

  • Seconded (though the title is very weird and this article may have to be moved in the future). -- Redge 20:33, 26 Jun 2004 (CEST)
  • Mollmann'. Anyway, seconded, obviously. I tried to put in a reference of some sort to every Season 3 episode. And as for the title, it was the best I could do. --Steve 07:22, 27 Jun 2004 (CEST)
  • Certainly seconded. That's a very extensive in-depth article, which certainly deserves to be a Featured Article. Though I agree the title is a little odd, but I honestly can't think of a better name for the article, though. Good work! Ottens 21:54, 27 Jun 2004 (CEST)
  • Seconded. --BlueMars 00:33, Jun 28, 2004 (CEST)
  • Support. -- Michael Warren 00:45, 28 Jun 2004 (CEST)

Battle of Wolf 359 (June 26)

Together with the list of ships at Wolf 359, this article gives all canon-info along with good illustrations. The article was created with the help of various people. --BlueMars 18:53, Jun 26, 2004 (CEST)

  • Seconded. -- Redge 19:33, 26 Jun 2004 (CEST)
  • Approve. (I did some major rewriting on this article a while back.) -- Dan Carlson 20:27, 26 Jun 2004 (CEST)
  • Seconded. It's pretty good. Ottens 21:54, 27 Jun 2004 (CEST)
  • Seconded. --BlueMars 00:33, Jun 28, 2004 (CEST)
  • Definitely support -- Michael Warren

Nominations with objections

Defiant class (June 28)

Another self-nomination. I updated the History of the class, added information about its tactical and defensive systems, and added information about its interior design. Ottens 19:49, 28 Jun 2004 (CEST)

  • You just keep popping them up, don't you! Well, I had a look, but I'm not to sure about that section on Warhead. Also missing links and references. I think we should hold up this nomination untill that can be worked out. -- Redge 21:42, 28 Jun 2004 (CEST)
  • Neutral. I don't know... I still think this article needs some work before it should be featured. I'm not sure what, exactly... it just seems incomplete. (I won't oppose this, though, since I don't have any valid criticism to offer.) -- Dan Carlson 17:40, 29 Jun 2004 (CEST)
  • Moves this to Nominations with objections. I've added a list of episodes in which the Defiant appeared, and all the books where I've taken information from as listen, but I honestly hone no clue in which episode certain things were mentioned... Ottens 12:38, 1 Jul 2004 (CEST)

Excelsior class (June 28)

Very detailed article. Congratulations Ottens. --BlueMars 00:33, Jun 28, 2004 (CEST)

  • Oppose for now. Still a great deal of work being done and needing to be done to clear out non-canon and outright speculation. See Talk:Excelsior class. Would support once consensus is reached. -- Michael Warren 00:42, 28 Jun 2004 (CEST)
  • Oppose, for the same reasons as Michael said. -- Dan Carlson 02:12, 28 Jun 2004 (CEST)
  • I think you nominated this one a bit to soon Bluemars. Maybe in a coule of days, when the issues are resolved. -- Redge 11:22, 28 Jun 2004 (CEST)
  • It seems my writing was simply removed, while we were still debating it... At least the article does not contain any non-canon information anymore. Ottens 11:27, 28 Jun 2004 (CEST)
  • I've read the new version, but I still feel there are a lot of issues to be resolved before we feature this article. See the talk page for more details. -- Redge 11:55, 28 Jun 2004 (CEST)
  • Oppose. Much of the data is baseless, there seems to be a lot of resistance to including accurate data here. -- Captain Mike K. Bartel 15:05, 28 Jun 2004 (CEST)
  • All non-canon data was removed. If there is any non-canon information, it should be removed, but I believe there is non, and no one responded to my question on the Talk page. So I think it could be re-nominated, unless there are objection of course... Ottens 12:08, 29 Jun 2004 (CEST)
