Memory Alpha articles are never truly finished. Even featured articles, examples of Memory Alpha's best work, will over time have to undergo revisions to keep them up to date. Therefore, it's important to review the featured articles from time to time to ensure that these revisions have not only happened, but have maintained the quality expected of a featured article.

If you would like to help by starting a review, a good place to start is featured articles more than five years old, which are listed here. Please make sure you are familiar with the review policy before proceeding, though. For past reviews, please see the archive.

Reviews can be started by beginning a new discussion on this page. If you think that a featured articles' status should be upheld, add it to the "Uphold" section. If you think that the article should be removed from the feature article list, it should be added to the "Remove" section. Either way, be sure to state the reason(s) why you think the article should be reviewed. Reviews should display, and have a link to, the blurb used on the portals, by adding {{Blurb|ARTICLE}} before the discussion.

Sample format:

=== ARTICLE ===
{{Blurb|ARTICLE}}
<reasoning> - <signature>

Once this is done, a notice that the article's status is being reviewed should be added to the article in question by inserting {{far}} at the top of the page, above any other templates except the article type template.

When you are commenting on a review, please take the time to read the entire article before you decide whether to Support or Oppose the motion. 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 "~~~~".

Weyoun

Weyoun 8

Weyoun in 2375

Weyoun was a Vorta diplomat and leader in the service of the Dominion during the late 24th century. Like all Vorta, he was a clone; at least eight copies (five of which were encountered by the Federation) were known to exist. Weyoun became a well-known Vorta in the Alpha Quadrant during the Dominion War, serving as the Dominion representative to the Cardassian Union. In this capacity, he personally oversaw most aspects of the war, although his presence was largely to ensure the loyalty of Cardassian leaders such as Gul Dukat, Legate Damar, and Legate Broca.

The war brought Weyoun into contact with many leaders from the Alpha Quadrant. He visited Deep Space 9 to negotiate with Benjamin Sisko when the cold war between the powers of the Alpha Quadrant and the Dominion showed signs of eroding into open hostilities. Shortly thereafter, he returned with a fleet of Cardassian and Dominion warships to take control of the station, and went on to serve as the Dominion overseer of the station during the brief occupation that followed. In this capacity, he personally negotiated a nonaggression pact with Bajor and dealt with representatives from such powers as the Romulan Star Empire, Breen Confederacy, and Tholian Assembly. Until his death, he remained the only "Solid" that the Female Changeling claimed that she had ever trusted.

The article's scope was gutted, meaning it no longer covers the same information it did when featured. - Archduk3 06:57, April 24, 2019 (UTC)

Yeah don't usually vote on these things, but that article plain does not feel like featured article material anymore. -- Capricorn (talk) 00:05, April 29, 2019 (UTC)

Christine Chapel

Christine Chapel 2271

Doctor Chapel in the 2270s

Christine Chapel was a Human Starfleet officer aboard the USS Enterprise, under the command of Captain James T. Kirk during its original five-year mission of exploration.

Chapel began her career aboard the USS Enterprise as head nurse to Chief Medical Officer Leonard McCoy, and in doing so sacrificed a promising career in biology with several university degrees in research medicine. Chapel had abandoned her earlier career plans in the hopes that a assignment in Starfleet would one day reunite with her with Dr. Roger Korby, her estranged fiancé. Even while she sought to locate Korby, Chapel was deeply infatuated with the Enterprise's half-Vulcan science officer, Spock. While her attraction never interfered with her professional duties, it was an ongoing source of tension and bemusement throughout the five-year mission.

Following the Enterprise's five-year mission of exploration, she finished her own medical degree, and was promoted to chief medical officer of the refitted Enterprise, now under the command of Willard Decker. However, when Dr. McCoy returned to the ship during the V'Ger crisis, she willingly stepped down to allow McCoy to return as chief medical officer. Chapel was later re-assigned to Starfleet Headquarters as a commander.

This article was never complete and was poorly written and disorganized to begin with. How it was reupped as featured last year is completely lost on me. At present count nearly half, 14 of her 36 appearances not barely or not at all represented in the article's content, including most of TOS Season 3, outside a reference in the "appearances" section to her having appeared in said episodes. --Alan (talk) 19:15, May 10, 2019 (UTC)
