===[[Alynna Nechayev]]===
[[File:Alynna Nechayev 2371.jpg|thumb|Admiral Alynna Nechayev in 2371]]
'''[[Alynna Nechayev]]''' was a Human Starfleet flag officer during the late-24th century. She was a significant figure in Starfleet's dealings with the Cardassian Union and a fierce advocate of Federation security. She was Captain Jean-Luc Picard's direct superior but had a poor working relationship with him.
In 2369, while serving as a Vice Admiral, she ordered Picard to relinquish command of the USS ''Enterprise''-D to Captain Edward Jellico, the latter having experience with Cardassians in the past and having worked to establish the original armistice of the Federation-Cardassian War. She assigned Picard to a special operation to infiltrate a Cardassian installation on Celtris III. After Jellico's negotiations with Gul Lemec worsened, she authorized his actions against the Cardassian warships in the McAllister C-5 Nebula, at the risk of provoking open war and abandoning Picard.
Nechayev was promoted to the rank of Fleet Admiral in the year 2370, during which time she paid another visit to the ''Enterprise''-D. Nechayev believed that Picard was too soft-handed in his dealings with Federation adversaries. She cited in particular his refusal to use Hugh as a carrier to introduce an invasive program into the Borg Collective. When she later commanded the Starfleet task forces assembled in response to the Borg attack of 2369, she ordered Picard to deploy the program should another opportunity avail itself. Picard tried making amends in 2370, offering her Bularian canapés to help her feel welcome aboard the ''Enterprise''. However, his objections to her order removing the Native American colonists from the Dorvan V colony in the Demilitarized Zone left tension between the two.
I think this article is as complete as it can be. All of the in-universe content is there together with a decent quotes section and a comprehensive background information section, complete with Nechayev's appearances in non-canon works. I don't think any more can be done to this article and it is deserving of FA status in it's present form. --| [[User:TrekFan|TrekFan]] <sup>[[User Talk:TrekFan|<span style="color:#00FF00;">Open a channel</span>]]</sup> 17:41, May 31, 2014 (UTC)
Anyone interested in voting for or against? It would be a shame not to have any votes. --| [[User:TrekFan|TrekFan]] <sup>[[User Talk:TrekFan|<span style="color:#00FF00;">Open a channel</span>]]</sup> 11:47, June 6, 2014 (UTC)

:I was going to close this as successful (4 supports + nomination = 5) when I checked the history of the page. TrekFan was the last major contributor to the article, see the edits in [http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Alynna_Nechayev?action=history January], so unfortunately that would make this a self-nomination (though maybe not the type of self-nomination the rules were suppose to discourage), therefor it's still one support short. With that said, I intend to leave this open for a few more days before failing it out just in case anyone didn't vote yet thinking this had already passed.
:Afterward, it might be a good time to ask ourselves why only this process on MA outright refutes the {{w|Wikipedia:Silence and consensus|silence consensus}}, and if the FA nomination procedure is really designed to highlight exceptional articles, or to discourage the nomination of articles in general. - {{User:Archduk3/Sig/nature}} 02:52, July 20, 2014 (UTC)
*'''Support'''. Seems well written to me. [[User:31dot|31dot]] ([[User talk:31dot|talk]]) 08:12, July 20, 2014 (UTC)
Sorry, guys. I completely forgot about this nomination or I would have archived it myself by now. Seems with 31dot's vote this can be classed as successful now? Though I do agree with Archduk3. Only four votes in nearly two months is pretty poor though I suppose it is reflective of the recline in member numbers. Perhaps we should discuss a change to the policy in the appropriate place? --| [[User:TrekFan|TrekFan]] <sup>[[User Talk:TrekFan|<span style="color:#00FF00;">Open a channel</span>]]</sup> 20:49, July 31, 2014 (UTC)
:This will be successful 14 days after the last vote, so on Sunday. I'm waiting on the weekend as well to propose anything. - {{User:Archduk3/Sig/nature}} 21:47, July 31, 2014 (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> ===
'''[[<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 "~~~~".
