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 "~~~~".

Command console

Deanna Troi operates the port command console in 2364

Senior Starfleet bridge officers used specialized command consoles to access and control many functions of the ship's critical computer systems. These consoles were designed in several different formats specific to each ship's bridge layout, but all were located near (and sometimes attached to) the command chair. (Star Trek: The Original Series, Star Trek: The Next Generation; Star Trek: Deep Space Nine; Star Trek: Voyager; Star Trek: Enterprise; Star Trek: First Contact; Star Trek Nemesis)


I've covered all the major starship designs, from NX-class to the alternate reality Constitution-class, and found sourced funtionality and illustrative screenshots for each type of command console from the buttons on Jonathan Archer's command chair to the hand scanner on the USS Defiant. I'm not really sure what else there is to include - I'll be happy to take any suggestions - but I think this topic is covered top to bottom. I did my best to avoid rehashing too much information from the command chair page, and tried to stick directly to the actual buttons and displays rather than the chairs directly. - Aatrek 22:19, April 30, 2012 (UTC)
