Please point out any error in policy or style in this nonimation - it's a first for me. I nominate the real-world POV article [[Star Trek: The Official Starships Collection]] to become a Featured article, for the reasons outlined below. The article lists and describes the items of an Eaglemoss-produced collectible series. It is primarily organised with tables for different subsections, provides an introduction, and adds further information at the end, including sources.
  +
A. I believe it is '''well-written''', as despite the huge number of contents the article is easy to navigate when perusing the list of contents, or simply scrolling. It is primarily written by one user, Garth Duranium, who therefore has established an easy-to-follow template. On top of that, the style has been adapted to serve as template for other Eaglemoss collections, like the DSC starships and busts.
  +
  +
B. The article is '''comprehensive''' and covers the collectibles, sub-sections (like bonus editions) and detailed info at the end of the article. The contributing user frequently edits the longer texts at the end, ensuring it remains up to date and removing information that has become superfluous. Thus, it is a fine example for being comprehensive without unnecessary rambling. Sources are cited by linking to the appropriate tweets and Facebook posts of the production staff.
  +
  +
C. This also means the article is '''accurate''', and its primary contributor is not above changing and rearranging the articles content to fit that. For example, the original Bonus Edition counting was unoffical and chronological. When Eaglemoss revealed their official counting, the Bonus Editions were arranged accordingly (e.g. USS Defiant NCC-1764 is listed after chronologically younger issues because it is Bonus Edition issue 12). The article lists actual released & upcoming issues without including unverified content or falling victim to wishful thinking. Another asset for accuracy is that the articles has been maintained with consistent fervor for several years, and is usually updated within a day of offical announcements.

:This page would require a FA blurb, as described above. Similar blurbs, for example, are located [[:Category:Memory Alpha featured article templates (Merchandise)|here]]. The image used above also shouldn't be used for this, since it is just a picture of the article.
  +
:That aside, I tend to agree with the rationale above, except that since the collection isn't finished the article couldn't really be considered stable, and that is the only FA criteria not addressed. I'm not opposing this, just that things have historically not been made a FA if we knew there was more content on the subject coming. Since the release schedule is fairly consistent, or at least known here though, and the article has more or less always been updated in a timely manner, the mileage on that argument may vary. - {{User:Archduk3/Sig}} <small>(on an unsecure connection)</small> 22:31, March 4, 2019 (UTC)

Thank you for the feedback. Sorry, back in the day I forgot the '''stable''' part. As has been stated above, the article can be considered stable, given that it and its derivatives (e.g. Discovery collection) have been kept up to date for years without missing a beat.

'''''Insurrection Alpha''''' was a [[holonovel]] [[holodeck program|program]] created by {{USS|Voyager}} [[security chief]] [[Tuvok]], a realistic depiction of ''Voyager'' and her crew in which the former [[Maquis]] members rise up in armed rebellion against the [[Starfleet]] crew members.
  +
  +
It was originally designed in early 2371 when Tuvok believed that there was a strong likelihood of a real Maquis mutiny aboard Voyager. He intended to use the holoprogram as a "tactical simulation" to train his security officers in order to prepare them for the possibility of fighting their crewmates. However, before Tuvok had completed the program, he decided that the Starfleet and Maquis crews were integrating better than anticipated, and realized that his program would only exacerbate tensions, rather than solve problems. He therefore deleted the program... or so he thought.
   
*[[Timescape]] '''(self nomination)''' - I know that the summary has barely been here for a day but I feel that it is as detailed and as well written as the other featured TNG episode write-ups with an extensive use of references and appropriate use of pictures.--[[User:Scimitar|Scimitar]] 22:54, 31 May 2005 (UTC)

* [[Klaa]]. Minor charcter, self nomination. Written in five edits or less (!!), several months ago; upon recent review, the quality still seems to stand. --[[User:Gvsualan|Gvsualan]] 20:16, 27 May 2005 (UTC)
 
** '''Oppose''' -- due to several spelling and grammatical errors. --[[User:Defiant|Defiant]] | [[User talk:Defiant|''Talk'']] 08:37, 29 May 2005 (UTC)
 
*** Why did I not see this coming? This is just petty. There are '''no''' spelling errors, much less "several" and the grammar is better than a lot of other stuff that has successfully passed through here. In fact, the more I look at this, it ''almost'' seems to be something of a ''personal attack'', which I do believe is uncalled for in M/A. --[[User:Gvsualan|Gvsualan]] 08:56, 29 May 2005 (UTC)
 
** I '''support''' this article, but if the two of you could stop throwing mud it would make me happy. [[User:Tyrant|Tyrant]] 12:54, 29 May 2005 (UTC)Tyrant
 
** '''Support''', but I'm not sure why the second or third images of Klaa are needed (with respect to the [[Memory Alpha:Image use policy|image use policy]])... the third one in particular is not very clear and they really don't show anything new that can't be seen in the first image. -- [[User:SmokeDetector47|SmokeDetector47]] // [[User_talk:SmokeDetector47|''talk'']] 04:43, 30 May 2005 (UTC)
 
*** I've removed the last picture -- despite the poor quality, it ''was'' the best image of [[Todd Bryant]]'s character from ST6, which is mentioned in the article. Additionally, I still think the 2nd picture of Klaa at the scope balances the article out -- as in: the article ''is'' long enough to support a second picture of Klaa placed in it to balance the article out from being too "top heavy". The fact that Klaa is sitting at the weapons scope goes along quite well with the theme that he was "thirsting for a target that would fight back." But I do have an alternative in mind as well to put in it's place. --[[User:Gvsualan|Gvsualan]] 06:47, 30 May 2005 (UTC)
 
:::*Re: Tyrant -- Frankly, I agree. But then again, I've made no personal attacks here. All I've done is simply state that the "oppose" is ''purely'' based on a ''personal'' nature and that there are '''no''' spelling errors, nor any ''glaring'' grammarical errors to warrant an obviously ''biased'' vote. In reality, that alone should void the vote. --[[User:Gvsualan|Gvsualan]] 06:47, 30 May 2005 (UTC)
 
::::*Sorry, but neither have I made any personal attacks. I wouldn't oppose a nomination unless I could back it up. If you want me to list grammatical and spelling errors found in this article, I'd be quite happy to do that. Just tell me where, and I'll get started! --[[User:Defiant|Defiant]] | [[User talk:Defiant|''Talk'']] 10:37, 30 May 2005 (UTC)
 
:::::*You're welcome to do so, but I think it would be much more useful if you went in and attempted to fix the errors on your own. :) -- [[User:SmokeDetector47|SmokeDetector47]] // [[User_talk:SmokeDetector47|''talk'']] 19:07, 30 May 2005 (UTC)
 
::::::*I've corrected most of the errors, but I still have a problem with the article - in quite a few places, Klaa's actions are stated, not his ship's. For example, "he made his intentions to attack clear, by approaching the ''Enterprise'' fully [[cloaking device|cloaked]]." His ship was cloaked, not Klaa himself! I don't know how to change this, however. The errors that I knew how to correct, I have. --[[User:Defiant|Defiant]] | [[User talk:Defiant|''Talk'']] 20:22, 30 May 2005 (UTC)
 
*'''Oppose'''. I would like to see a table with biographical information before this becomes a featured article[[User:Jaz|Jaz]]
 
*'''Support''' - Added the table and divisions (the divisions I'm not perfectly happy with, could someone maybe rename them?) but for some reason, in my opinion Articles always look better with divisors.

Memory Alpha  AboutPolicies and guidelinesFA policiesFA criteria → Featured article nominations

This page is for the nomination and discussion of articles that may be potentially included in Memory Alpha's list of featured articles. A featured article is an especially well-written, informative, and comprehensive article that covers all available information on a subject. If you feel one of our articles meets this criteria, you may suggest it here in accordance with the nomination policy. For a list of articles previously nominated, see the archive.

To bring up a current featured article for review, please see the review procedure.

To nominate an article, start a new discussion under "Nominations without objections" with a heading named for the article you want to suggest. Provide an appropriate picture and a two- to three-paragraph summary of the article. This is usually the article's lead-in if possible, and should not contain any links, except to the article itself. This is what will be displayed on the main page and in the portals if the nomination is successful. Followed that by a brief reason why you feel the article should be featured.

Sample format:

=== <article> ===
[[File:<image>|thumb|<caption>]]
'''[[<article>]]''' <summary>
----
<reasoning> - <signature>

Once this is done, a notice that the article has been nominated as a featured article candidate should be added to the article in question by inserting {{fan}} at the top of the page, above any other templates except the article type template.

When you are commenting on a nomination, please take the time to read the entire article before you decide whether to Support or Oppose the nomination. Nominations with objections should be moved to the appropriate section until they are resolved.

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 "~~~~".

Insurrection Alpha Edit

Insurrection alpha holoprogram

Tom Paris confronts himself

Insurrection Alpha was a holonovel program created by USS Voyager security chief Tuvok, a realistic depiction of Voyager and her crew in which the former Maquis members rise up in armed rebellion against the Starfleet crew members.

It was originally designed in early 2371 when Tuvok believed that there was a strong likelihood of a real Maquis mutiny aboard Voyager. He intended to use the holoprogram as a "tactical simulation" to train his security officers in order to prepare them for the possibility of fighting their crewmates. However, before Tuvok had completed the program, he decided that the Starfleet and Maquis crews were integrating better than anticipated, and realized that his program would only exacerbate tensions, rather than solve problems. He therefore deleted the program... or so he thought.


I think this article is very comprehensive on the subject. Aside from a few more images to illustrate the various plotlines that could ensue, that is. What say you? - LauraCC (talk) 19:40, July 31, 2019 (UTC)
