Federation history

Federation history

Self nomination: After I've majorly expanded and rewritten this article, I started a peer review in July 08. The first attempt to get it featured a couple of months ago was not successful, however. Nevertheless, the article has further matured and grown over the months and I've addressed all mentioned issues. I think it's finally ready to take the test... --36ophiuchi 00:11, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

Needing some feedback please ;-) --36ophiuchi 21:36, 12 January 2009 (UTC)

  • Support. Well written and informative article. – Tom 11:47, 18 January 2009 (UTC)
  • Support. A good article. Links lots of stuff together. --Pseudohuman 14:16, 18 January 2009 (UTC)
  • Comments: Needs some touch-ups. It's definitely a good start, and while I corrected several formatting/spelling issues, to me it looks like it needs a good peer review (by Renegade54, Sulfur or Shran) to correct some other little things I've noticed (redundant links, grammar, formatting, several piped links that hide key terms that should be more visible). I don't have a lot of time this afternoon to implement this, but I do have a few suggestions for expansion, organization: 1) I am unsure if it is really necessary to get so in-depth with the Temporal Cold War/Xindi thing. A lot of that is/belongs in the Earth history page, or perhaps in the prehistory, such as the friction it caused between Archer and the Vulcans for not helping, and the Andorians misdirected attempt to assist Earth while at the same time serving their own needs. 2) I also think something could be added about the Polaric Test Ban Treaty and the Neutral Zone Treaty/Nimbus III experiment in the 23rd century, in terms of relations with the Romulans, as that information seems to be lacking from both here and the main article. 3) Other notes: Nothing about their involvement in the Klingon Civil War; a bit more could be said on the first contact between the Dominion and Federation surrounding DS9: "The Jem'Hadar", "The Search, Part I", "The Search, Part II"; and finally (for now), there is a complete lack of reference to the Maquis, a group that created something of a schism in the Federation. --Alan 18:03, 18 January 2009 (UTC)
Thanks a lot Alan for your comments. Actually there is a peer review of the article which I've already added in July 2008... As you can see it went unnoticed like so many peer reviews... The only place constructive criticism is issued seems to be here... As for the grammar bit: Although I'd tend to say that I'm more or less fluent in English, I'd definitely prefer a native speaker having a look on the article again. --36ophiuchi 18:53, 18 January 2009 (UTC)
Adressed items 1) and 2) on your list so far. The Neutral Zone Treaty is hard to include in such a historical article, as we do not know when it was signed, by whom or what its exact content was. --36ophiuchi 19:49, 18 January 2009 (UTC)
  • Comment. This is a minor issue, but the section "The future" needs to be rethought. According to our point of view all of those events are actually in the past. And the first paragraph in that section seems like speculation. Perhaps rewrite that first paragraph, move it under the "24th century" header, then rename "The future" section to something like "25th century and beyond"?– Cleanse 00:27, 19 January 2009 (UTC)
I've killed the speculative paragraph and renamed the section "26th to 31st century" as this is actually the time covered by it. --36ophiuchi 13:38, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

Leslie Hoffman

Self nomination: After I've spent several days to expand this article and got no reply on the peer review site for two months I think it's time to nominate this article for a featured one. I've majorly expanded the article from a short one, including images from Ms. Hoffman herself and links, information about her life and of course about her Star Trek connection...and now here is the nomination. – Tom 12:27, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

VOY: Alliances

"Alliances"

Self nomination: I nominate this article because I completely re-wrote the summary for this episode, which orginally was a very short paragraph summarizing it, to a very detailed episode summary. I also added several pictures to the summary and a memorable quotes section. --Delta2373 07:01, 22 March 2009 (UTC)
