=== [[Kruge]] ===
Commander '''[[Kruge]]''' was a male Klingon officer of the 23rd century Klingon Empire. In 2285, he commanded a Klingon Bird-of-Prey. He was romantically involved with Valkris and kept a Klingon monster dog as a pet.
In 2285, Kruge played a major role in a plot to obtain intelligence on the Genesis Device, a Federation technology designed to instantly terraform an entire planet. He saw it as an incredibly powerful weapon, and sought to bring that technology to the Empire. He recruited Valkris as a spy to obtain material from the project, and once successful, she made a rendezvous with Kruge on the ''Merchantman''. When he learned from her that she had viewed the material even though she was not to have done so, however, he destroyed the vessel without beaming her aboard.
Kruge, now with the project summary in hand, ordered a course set for the Genesis Planet, which had only recently been formed. Arriving at that destination, he and his crew encountered the USS ''Grissom'', a Federation science vessel assigned to study the planet. Kruge wanted to gain hostages with which to bargain for the Genesis technology, so he ordered his gunner to target the ''Grissom''{{'}}s engines in order to disable the vessel. However, in what the gunner described as a "lucky shot," the ''Grissom'' was destroyed. Kruge responded by instantly killing the gunner. After Torg found that a landing party from the ''Grissom'' had survived on the planet's surface, Kruge led a team to search for them.
I've personally tried to put a lot of effort into upgrading this article, and I do believe it now fits the {{ma|featured article criteria}}. --[[User:Defiant|Defiant]] ([[User talk:Defiant|talk]]) 22:01, May 25, 2017 (UTC)
*Browsed this and it seems fairly well put together. I just wondered why the section title "service record"? That seems more befitting a character who appears multiple times (like Kirk or Spock, for whom we have multiple acts of service as opposed to one continuing story one time. Maybe that's just me, but I '''support''' this otherwise. --[[User:LauraCC|LauraCC]] ([[User talk:LauraCC|talk]]) 15:08, May 30, 2017 (UTC)
Thanks. It's an in-universe section heading, so (imo, at least) it works well from an in-universe perspective. If you or anyone else can think up a heading that might be better, though, that'd be cool too (I'm all ears, in other words!) --[[User:Defiant|Defiant]] ([[User talk:Defiant|talk]]) 15:12, May 30, 2017 (UTC)
I'd say the main body of in-universe info definitely needs to retain an overall section heading; that's been the usual format up to now, and I think it's less confusing, at least at first glance, for the reader. Subheadings are fine, imo, as long as an overall heading is kept. As I said, if that's not to be "service record" (which I personally don't have a problem with), please suggest an alternative. As an aside, is the subheading "Humano a Klingono" maybe a bit too humorous? --[[User:Defiant|Defiant]] ([[User talk:Defiant|talk]]) 15:59, May 30, 2017 (UTC)
:Perhaps. It was a toss-up between that and "The final confrontation". --[[User:LauraCC|LauraCC]] ([[User talk:LauraCC|talk]]) 16:01, May 30, 2017 (UTC)
I like that one; thanks. :) --[[User:Defiant|Defiant]] ([[User talk:Defiant|talk]]) 16:44, May 30, 2017 (UTC)
:You're welcome. --[[User:LauraCC|LauraCC]] ([[User talk:LauraCC|talk]]) 20:30, June 2, 2017 (UTC)
*'''Support'''. Fine job, as usual with Defiant. Had also some issues with lack of (sub-)headings, but that is largely addressed now. Two minor cosmetic issues remaining for me: think the Kruge puppet section as a visual (not special, as there is no interaction with life performers) effects element warrants its own heading (as well as some paragraphing to somewhat break up the fairly large, in comparison to the rest, chunk of text), and I think the "merchandise" section deserves a level up instead of being subordinated under "trivia" (perhaps even a listing above "trivia"), but are otherwise no deal breakers in themselves...--[[User:Sennim|Sennim]] ([[User talk:Sennim|talk]]) 16:44, June 3, 2017 (UTC)
Sorted those issues. Great observations, so thank you. :) The only problem I'd have with what you suggested was that I really don't want to move the placement of the merch subsection; imo, it's absolutely fine where it is, just above the "apocrypha" section. --[[User:Defiant|Defiant]] ([[User talk:Defiant|talk]]) 07:36, June 4, 2017 (UTC)
::You're welcome, and like I said, no biggy...--[[User:Sennim|Sennim]] ([[User talk:Sennim|talk]]) 13:37, June 4, 2017 (UTC)
*'''Support'''. - {{User:Archduk3/Sig/nature}} 19:44, June 4, 2017 (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 "~~~~".
