Nominations without objections

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan

I wrote the bulk of this article ("Analysis" and "Background Information") a while back and then revised the "Summary". Since it has been revised slightly and many of the images have been replaced with graphics of superior quality. I don't think it's lacking in any regard, and overall it makes for an excellent article that covers the film more extensively than any other source. Ottens 14:49, 30 June 2007 (UTC)

Death Wish

A very well, written artice, with comprehensive episode summary, lots of pictures, background information, and quotes. Support. ~Anya Prynn | Talk 02:14, 23 June 2007 (UTC)


Cardassian

This article has been worked on considerably since its last nomination. The last time it was nominated it failed, solely because it was lacking a couple votes, (NOT because there were objections to the nomination). I have submitted the article for peer review, and have received no advice on how to improve it. Therefore, I feel the improvements already made to this article after its previous nomination should be more than enough for it to receive the sufficient votes for a featured article.

  • Oppose, for now. I don't see the peer review link up anymore otherwise I'd post there. I have some issues with the article that should be resolved first before I can support. It's mostly complete but the Philosophy section has a lot of content that would seem to fit better under Society and Culture, or perhaps Philosophy should be a sub-section of that? I see very little there that is revealing about Philosophy which I would consider to include Religion, the meaning of life and so on (see the Ferengi or Vulcan pages). Certainly bits about architecture and the paragraph following belong in Society. Also, I think there are some things missing here that can be gleaned from other episodes such as hostility between men and women often being a prelude to mating (Destiny). And given the importance of the military and intelligence services it definitely needs a section or sub-section for each even if it's brief and links off to the main articles a la the Klingon page.

  • By the way, the link to the peer review is here.--Tim Thomason 20:46, 6 June 2007 (UTC)
  • Shouldn't this be resolved by now? ~Anya Prynn | Talk 02:14, 23 June 2007 (UTC)
There, I have taken the time to add a considerable amount of information regarding the military, intelligence agency, education, religion, etc. and have formatted the page layout to be a bit better. I believe it will be to your satisfaction Logan. *UPDATE* Should you not change your "object" to "support" now that I have made the corrections and additions? I don't know why you haven't already... - Thot Prad 19:25, 23 June 2007 (UTC)
  • Hey, I've been busy! Given the changes I'm comfortable withdrawing my objection and putting in a mild support. The support is mild bc I still feel like there has to be additional info out there in other episodes, esp. Voyager given Seska's pregnancy (pointing to compatibility with other species), Mocet's experiments (in combo with treatment of Bajorans its further illustration of their racist tendencies). But it's much improved. Logan 5 20:29, 2 July 2007 (UTC)
  • Well, I don't know if this is still open for discussion (shouldn't this have been resolved weeks ago?) but with the new additions, I heartily support this article's nomination. ~Anya Prynn | Talk 01:54, 1 July 2007 (UTC)
As it stands, the article meets the criteria of a featured article. Rest assured, I will likely go through the Voyager episodes with Seska to obtain additional information which I will eventually add to the page. I am also going to be re-watching (more or less) all of Deep Space Nine, so any additional information I come across I will add. I appreciate your input and support Logan 5. - Thot Prad 00:08, 4 July 2007 (UTC)
  • Mild Support from me as well (because it may be lacking, but it is very well-written). For featured status, it needs one (five total) more support vote. After that we wait seven days for any objections. If there are no objections, it will (should) be featured then.--Tim Thomason 00:28, 4 July 2007 (UTC)
  • This article has been expanded a lot since I was last here, Thot Prad really did a lot of good work on it. Support. ~Starchild ~ Talk 5 July 2007
I have added a large amount of information to this page, including the ability to breed with other species in the physiology section, as well as a bulk of information in the society and culture and philosophy sections which I think is quite important. I hope these additions will be sufficient to boost those "mild supports" to "supports". Not that it makes much of a difference in the votes, but I'd like my fellow Memory Alpha members to be pleased with the page and see my commitment to this site. Let me know if there is anything else you think should be added, though I think I've squeezed out almost all the important information on this species. - Thot Prad 07:35, 9 July 2007 (UTC)

Nominations with objections

Ship in a Bottle

I rewrote the summary for this article a couple of months ago, replacing a rather short one with the one now there. Several people have added onto it, and fixed my typo errors. I think that it has enough to become a Featured article.
