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 "~~~~".

Cover of Star Trek: Armada

Star Trek: Armada is a real-time strategy (RTS) game published by Activision in 2000. The game can be played either as a single-player campaign, or in a multi-player internet combat mode. In either mode, the player(s) build and maintain fleets and stations of one of four races: Federation, Klingon, Romulan, and Borg. The single-player mode is story-driven: the player has a series of objectives to complete twenty missions, in an interwoven storyline covering all four races.

One main complaint about Armada was that each race could only build six types of starships and two construction/collection ships, and that each race's ships were essentially the same ship with different sprites thus giving no race an advantage over the other. Fans dealt with these problems by creating a series of game modifications, or "mods" that ranged from cosmetic changes, to completely new games using the Star Trek: Armada engine.


Brought this up to imitate the structure, only to find the second paragraph needs citations and should probably be moved to a "Reception" section; the summary from the back of the box is no where to be found, there's no background information section on development, concept, release, etc. Even with those additions and reorganizing, in 2005, this was probably one of MA's more detailed summaries, but I would no longer describe this article as "one of the best examples of the community's work." - AJHalliwell (talk) 14:14, 9 March 2021 (UTC)

I have made a few additions to address some of my notes (added background section, box text, reorganized a bit,) but welcome other input. - AJHalliwell (talk) 17:34, 17 March 2021 (UTC)
