Nominations without objections

Broken Bow

A short and concise summary (especially for a two-parter) with an extremely detailed Background Information section, packed with information about this episode. --Defiant | Talk 02:11, 26 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Nominations with objections

Hippocrates Noah

Self-nomination. I figure we need something here, and more importantly a non-episode. He's a solid article and I think he'd do nicely as an FA. --Schrei 07:12, 24 Oct 2005 (UTC)

  • Support. --Mike Nobody 08:31, 24 Oct 2005 (UTC)
  • Neutral. Content-wise this is a complete article that covers the topic without getting boring or turning into an episode summary for the sake of length, it meets all the critera. But I'm biased against single-episode characters like this, so I don't think I can support it (I agree that Brooks should be a Bond villain though). Vedek Dukat 18:30, 24 Oct 2005 (UTC)
  • Mild oppose. To me this one falls in the mirky area between clearly non-FA worthy characters like Grathon Tolar/Ethan Novakovich and ones like R'Mor. There's a little more back linking with this character, so thats a point in its favor, but even though its "complete" there's no real information here outside of action summary.

    • Comment. While I agree with Logan and was the one who nominated Grathon Tolar for removal, it seems to have retained its featured status. I'm not sure about this article, as I don't think I'm experienced enough with MA and the like to judge it, but I do think that it should be possible to have a well-written and comprehensive aritlce without automatically featuring it.

  • Comment. I'd rather see something like Ishka featured than this, if you're looking for something to spruce up. Vedek Dukat 02:57, 25 Oct 2005 (UTC)
  • Support; I feel this falls well within the criteria of being well written and comprehensive of the subject matter to qualify as a Featured Article. I really liked this character, and I'm glad to see him 'done up' really well. — THOR =/\= 15:17, 25 Oct 2005 (UTC)
    • Comment. Aren't the featured articles supposed to be the creme de la creme? I don't think complete, comprehensive, and well written should be the standard for just featured articles but all of Memory Alpha. Minor ones like this that meet those criteria, I would mark it on my checklist and move on, not feature it. Weyoun 02:01, 26 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Klingon history

  • After this was moved from Klingon Empire the original article will be de-featured because of the shrinking, but this one is still FA-worthy. --Memory 23:05, 14 Oct 2005 (UTC)
    • Comment - The Future section needs episode citation. --Defiant | Talk 11:59, 16 Oct 2005 (UTC)
    • Comment. I'd like to see some apocrypha because the Klingons have been featured in books, but otherwise it looks good. I cited the future part. Coke 21:04, 16 Oct 2005 (UTC)
  • Support. Klingon Empire was apparently featured on account of this section. Now that it has its own article, Klingon Empire looks like it will be de-listed, and I think this more than stands its ground as a separate, featured article. Weyoun 03:54, 21 Oct 2005 (UTC)
  • Oppose. In its former life it was incorporated into an article and now that it is no longer in that article, the page, as a stand alone, looks like it was just plopped into where it is at from another page, which is exactly what it was. The "introduction" to the article is non-existant, and the first sentence regarding the Zanxthkolt Dynasty seems almost completely random for an intro to "early history". The "future" is just two listed facts and not really a competant future-- much less the fact that alternate timeline futures (from "The Visitor", "Endgame" and "All Good Things..." are absent. It also could be merged with the history section on the Klingon page as well. --Alan del Beccio 09:34, 23 Oct 2005 (UTC)
    • "The Visitor" and AGT have been addressed by me and others, I don't know what kind of introduction you want, you can't summarize a history article in three sentences. --Memory 20:55, 24 Oct 2005 (UTC)
