Nominations without objections

Design patents

This is a self-nomination as I was the primary author of the article. I believe that it meets the criteria for being a featured article in that it is well-written, comprehensive as to its subject matter, accurate, and stable. It also has the distinction of being a subject not dealt with in any other Star Trek site I am aware of, so it is unique to Memory Alpha. I placed the article up for Peer Review, but after a week without suggestions I thought I'd just go for it. Thoughts? Aholland 18:17, 11 May 2006 (UTC)

Nominations with objections

Explorers

It pneeds to be copy-edited since the paint is still wet, but I'm putting it up here in light of the lack of nominations at present. I didn't originally intend to feature it (more of a diversion over the past few days because work has been slow), but I think it meets the criteria. The only thing it might need is a bit more on the scientific (im)plausibility of the Bajoran lightship concept - what do you guys think? --Vedek Dukat Talk | Duty Roster 20:52, 4 May 2006 (UTC)

  • Comment. Nice work, but would the info on the lightship be more appropriate on the page about the lightship? Broik 22:58, 4 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Comment. I think we should feature Bajoran lightship (with some more work and information about the mechanics of course) instead. But that's just me. Makon 07:44, 5 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Object. A far more comprehensive episode summary could be written up, the page needs more background information and perhaps one or two more images. Besides, I would like to note that I find it hardly necessary to nominate a page for featured status merely because there are no other nominations currently. It's not as if there must be nominations at all times. If there's no article up to featured status at present, then there must be none nominated. Ottens 09:33, 5 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Comment. For the record, I didn't nominate it solely to have something here, but I looked at the article, thought about nominating it, and figured now was a good time to do so. As far as the summary goes, have you seen the episode? There isn't exactly a lot of action - a longer summary is unnecessary and more pictures would be superfluous, because pictures in episode summaries should illustrate something words alone cannot describe. Background: Makon moved a bunch of info to the lightship page, which is why it looks more sparse now. I'll leave it up to the community to decide whether to move any of that back to the episode page and/or feature one or both of the pages in question. --Vedek Dukat Talk | Duty Roster 18:36, 5 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Support. I realize that Ottens is entitled to an opinion, but I think the summary is as comprehensive as it needs to be. The tendency on the site to have summaries that take as long to read as to watch the actual show baffles me sometimes. As to the lightship, I agree that commentary on its scientific basis should be on the lightship page rather than the episode summary. Aholland 11:35, 5 May 2006 (UTC)

  • Support. Good summary length and solid background info make this a worthy episode article (though the ep. itself is pretty boring...zzzzzzzz) Logan 5 19:49, 9 May 2006 (UTC)
