After I've addressed all issues mentioned in the article's peer review and further complemented it with additional illustrations, I deem it ready to be seriously considered as a featured article. --[[User:36ophiuchi|36ophiuchi]] 15:15, 12 August 2008 (UTC)

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.
   
==Nominations with objections==
+
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.
   
=== Dark Frontier ===
+
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.
   
I would like to nominate the article {{VOY|Dark Frontier}} as it is extremely detailed. The summary is well written and complete, there are a decent amount of quotes and the background section has some interesting points. An all round excellent article, in my opinion.

*'''Minor Oppose''' The captions for the pictures are not very encyclopedic. They are more humorous than they should be. Also, the Background Info section could use expanding. --[[User:Nmajmani|Nmajmani]] 13:40, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

:'''Comment''': While I agree that the background section could use some (slight) expansion, I disagree about the image captions. I don't think that they are humorous at all, and I think that they describe the subject matter well. So, find some more background stuff and you'll have my support. ----[[User:Mainphramephreak|<span style="color:#0066CC;"> '''Willie'''</span>]]<sup>[[User Talk:Mainphramephreak|<span style="color:#FF7000;"> '''LLAP'''</span>]]</sup> 15:00, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

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)
