"Old" featured articles (106 total)

Featured articles can, and should, be brought up for review from time to time to ensure they are still an example of Memory Alpha's best work. Featured articles more than five years old will be automatically added to the list to the right. It is expected that these articles will have undergone revisions over that time to keep them up to date, but it's important to make sure that these revisions have maintained the quality expected of a featured article.

Before starting a review discussion, please make sure you are familiar with the review policy. For past reviews, please see the archive.

Reviews can be started by beginning a new discussion on this page. If you think that a featured articles' status should be upheld, add it to the "Uphold" section. If you think that the article should be removed from the feature article list, it should be added to the "Remove" section. Either way, be sure to state the reason(s) why you think the article should be reviewed. Reviews should display, and have a link to, the blurb used on the portals, by adding {{Blurb|ARTICLE}} before the discussion.

Sample format:

=== [[ARTICLE]] ===
{{tl|Blurb|ARTICLE}}
<reasoning> - <signature>

Once this is done, a notice that the article's status is being reviewed should be added to the article in question by inserting {{far}} at the top of the page, above any other templates except the article type template.

When you are commenting on a review, please take the time to read the entire article before you decide whether to Support or Oppose the motion. When supporting or opposing an article, please use a bullet point (by adding a * before your comment) without any indent so these will be easy to find later. General comments should be indented as usual, and, as always, please sign your nominations and comments with "~~~~".

Tom Morga

Tom Morga and Frakes
Morga and Jonathan Frakes

Thomas "Tom" A. Morga is a stuntman, stunt actor, and stunt coordinator who holds the record for being the most seen stuntman in Star Trek. Between 1979 and 2005 he appeared in six feature films and all four spin-off television series, doubled main actors and guest actors, and played almost every major race.

Morga also served as assistant stunt coordinator to Dennis Madalone on Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, and Star Trek: Voyager for fourteen years. This position included fight choreographies for episodes such as "Blood Oath" and the creating of props such as the blade weapons in "Battle Lines". For the majority of his appearances he received no on-screen credits.

Outside of Star Trek, Morga has worked on numerous other films, including Ghost Busters, Alien Nation, Army of Darkness, The Shawshank Redemption, Independence Day, Spider-Man, and all three Pirates of the Caribbean films. His television credits have thus far included Scarecrow and Mrs. King, NYPD Blue, Babylon 5, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Seinfeld. Throughout his career, he has doubled such actors as Bruce Boxleitner, Jeff Goldblum, David Hasselhoff, John Travolta, and Star Trek Nemesis' Ron Perlman.

I constantly update the article when I receive information from Tom Morga. Sure, there are several appearances of him in DS9 and Voyager still missing images but I think it deserves featured article status and is a personal request of me. Tom (talk) 14:30, March 29, 2014 (UTC)

  • Support. - Archduk3 15:32, March 29, 2014 (UTC)
  • Support, Nice to see a beefed out article on the more obscure contributors of the franchise - Sennim (talk) 11:06, March 30, 2014 (UTC)
  • Support - Very good article. --| TrekFan Open a channel 09:19, March 31, 2014 (UTC)
A few more comments or votes are appreciated. Tom (talk) 03:19, April 13, 2014 (UTC)
  • Support - I say Morga deserves it because of his vast and long-time contributions to the franchise. And it's also a good article, of course. Ltarex, 11:58, April 15, 2014 (CET)

Patricia Tallman

Enterprise-D Female Security Officer
... as a security officer

Patricia Tallman is a stuntwoman and actress who appeared in several episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, and Star Trek: Voyager, and in the seventh feature film Star Trek: Generations.

Outside the Star Trek universe she is best known for her role as "Lyta Alexander", a telepath, on the science fiction television series Babylon 5.

Tallman first worked with Dennis Madalone on the set of Shocker, and this led to an appearance in the TNG episode "Power Play", where she played a security officer. This single appearance was followed by a long-term relationship with Star Trek, as Tallman became part of the core stunt group. Because of her height and resemblance she doubled lead actresses Gates McFadden and Nana Visitor – as well as several guest actresses – for the next eight years, played stunt acting parts as a Romulan, Bajoran, and several other aliens, and coordinated fight scenes in such episodes as "Looking for par'Mach in All the Wrong Places".

Another article I work constantly on and I would consider this one also a featured article status deserving one. Tom (talk) 14:30, March 29, 2014 (UTC)

  • Support. - Archduk3 15:32, March 29, 2014 (UTC)
  • Support, Ditto, knew her from Babylon 5, didn't realize what presence she had in Star Trek, so nice example of what MA is for. A minor cosmetic issue of personal taste: the section "Personal life and interests" is presented in a "bullet point" style which IMHO constitutes something of a visual style break with the rest of the article. Personally I think slightly more beefed out prose is aesthetically more pleasing in this case - Sennim (talk) 11:06, March 30, 2014 (UTC)
    • Thank you for your vote and comment, Sennim. I will work on the personal section of the article and add a few more information within the next days. Tom (talk) 11:09, March 30, 2014 (UTC)
  • Support --| TrekFan Open a channel 09:21, March 31, 2014 (UTC)
Ok, Sennim. You got me. I've expanded the article with information from her biography, added images, brought the "visually breaking" personal section into the article text and added more info with a bit of research. I would really appreciate more votes on this article. Tom (talk) 03:19, April 13, 2014 (UTC)
Ha, ha. impressive, as usual. If it were allowed, I'd given you a double vote--Sennim (talk) 12:27, April 14, 2014 (UTC)
Thank you very much. :) Tom (talk) 20:04, April 14, 2014 (UTC)

Leslie Hoffman

Defiant security ensign, To the death
... as a Starfleet ensign

Leslie Hoffman is a stuntwoman, actress, and stunt coordinator who worked as a stunt performer on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Voyager regularly between 1995 and 2001. In the early 1980s, Hoffman was the first "voted-in" member of the "Society of Professional Stuntwomen".

A self-avowed Trekkie, Hoffman attended the second Star Trek convention ever held in New York City in 1973. Her first work on Star Trek in DS9's "The Way of the Warrior" was a dream come true for her, and for the final five seasons of Voyager, she was the main stunt double for B'Elanna Torres actress Roxann Dawson.

Throughout her career, she has appeared in a wide variety of television shows, such as Charlie's Angels, Melrose Place, BJ and the Bear, and M*A*S*H, and films, such as Nightmare on Elm Street, Clue, Death Wish 3, and Alien Nation.

And the third one I would like to nominate for being a featured one again. At the time of its first featured article status, Hoffman herself gave a vote, too. Tom (talk) 14:30, March 29, 2014 (UTC)

A few more comments or votes are appreciated. Tom (talk) 03:19, April 13, 2014 (UTC)
