Have an article to request? Post it here!

If you're not sure what an article should be named, just enter a very brief description, or link to a related article for ideas, or look at naming conventions.

To be informed of when the requested article is written, you can go into its future page and just add it to your watchlist.

See Most Wanted Articles for a list of the most-linked-to but nonexistent articles, or List of Stubs for articles that are considered incomplete.

Some special pages exist for lists that have been turned into categories. These pages contain requests for unwritten articles about

Feel free to add appropriate requests there as well.

Science Edit

  • Shockwave levels - Can someone post an article explaining cosmic shockwaves? You hear references to shockwaves all the time in different episodes of TNG, VOY and ENT. Example: A level-12 shock wave was created by the collapse of the Amargosa star by a trilithium weapon, destroying the entire star system. (Star Trek Generations) I would be curious to see the varying shockwave levels explained in terms of energy output in both joules and perhaps impact lbs per square inch, etc. I have done extensive searches online and found no explainations that offer any hint that helps understand those orders of magnitude (I assume they are orders of magnitude - please forgive my ignorance if I am way off base here) and their relative comparisons.

  • Polarity/Polarity reversal - there are lots of references to this in Trek! The page could explain the Doctor Who connection to reversing the polarity! --Defiant 14:59, 25 May 2009 (UTC)

Subspace science and technolgy Edit

During my research for the German MA, I found the following dead-end interwiki links:

All these subspace-words already exist as a German-language articles, which I have created themselves. --Mark McWire 13:55, November 22, 2010 (UTC)

Edit: I work on a comparison of German and English articles on my user page, so I will publish the episode sources of terms under de:Benutzer:Mark_McWire/Subraum, as other missing terms here and in the German version. --Mark McWire 10:39, December 3, 2010 (UTC)

I added "WhatLinksHere" links to the above list, because newskin does not offer an easy way to check this for pages that don't exist (stupid!). As one can see, there are no incoming links to most of these pages - which leads to the question of why wrong interwiki links have been added in the first place? -- Cid Highwind 14:27, November 22, 2010 (UTC)

I have half a year ago copied all the scripts and transcripts to my hard disk to then search with a text search program, all references of "subspace". In this way I have found thousands of references. Since I work in the German version of "Memory Alpha" in the preparation of articles and additional references in the articles on the episodes. Since the source is written in English and I therefore I had to watch all the episodes for translation into German, I can confirm all these words as Canon. By the way I are also striking differences between script and transcript noticed, as I mentioned in my user talk. Ultimately, I have taken after reviewing the DVD, the transcripts as the basis for the German article, because the scripts differ too much. --Mark McWire 14:58, November 22, 2010 (UTC)

If that is the case, though, it would help us a lot to not only get the list of unwritten articles without context, but also a link to the episode it is from. Perhaps you can add that to the above list. As an aside, I do not agree with the reasoning to use transcripts instead of scripts as the source for spelling - while the available scripts might not be the "final" versions, they are at least written by some official source. Transcripts, on the other hand, are fan-created texts based on what a single person understood when viewing the episode in question. Not very authoritative if you ask me - but to each his own. -- Cid Highwind 15:19, November 22, 2010 (UTC)
I'm The episode references taken after. At least the ones I have just received from memory together. btw: The only canonical source ist spoken word from DVD or the DVD-subtitle. All other only secondary. Transcripts are closer to the final version as the scripts. Therefore I use for my purposes, only the transcripts, regardless of which hand they come from. Credibility and accuracy is more important to me. --Mark McWire 16:22, November 22, 2010 (UTC)
Closer in content, sometimes yes - they are written after the fact, after all. Closer in "intended spelling", definitely not. -- Cid Highwind 18:09, November 22, 2010 (UTC)

Organizations Edit

Other Edit

  • I have been wondering , would it be suitable for creating an article about Star Trek fashion? Someone could lists species and add pictures about the things they wear. I think it would be a nice addition to the MA. Costume designers of Star Trek have done a great job at designing clothes for all. - <unsigned>
  • I'd like to see a section dealing with the dietary habits of various worlds. For example, I know that most Klingon food is served still alive, while Vulcans tend to be vegetarian. What are the dietary habits of other worlds? What do humans eat in the future?

Here the article or the bundle of articles should also include political ans social subtext.

  • I'd like to see one or more articles about Star Trek Fables and Folklore: The Young Hunter:([X]wbm). Personally since it is being 'webcast' by the official website, I could quite happily consider this little animated short as canon. I'm sure most of you will disagree, but there are articles about non-canon books/comics etc here and given that this has been made and distributed by Paramount Pictures would lean it closer to canon than them.

  • Literary allusions
  • Trivia Game Bank (for example, "How many times has the phrase "drop out of warp" been used in the franchise? Which character first coined it?")
  • Captain's Oath aka "Space the final frontier..." speech - In "Star Trek Into Darkness" at the finale Kirk mentions reciting "The Captain's Oath" which is the "space the final frontier" opening monologue, so is that now a thing? Should it have it's own article? I can see it being used (aside from opening of TOS/TNG eps) in Star Trek II, Star Trek (2009), Into Darkness & "These are the Voyages..."
