Memory Alpha About → Projects

Projects for the improvement of Memory Alpha. Before creating a project, please read and understand the following guidelines:

  • Be responsible. Don't wait for others to keep your project alive. Work on your project page and the defined task yourself. Projects considered inactive after discussion may be closed and the page itself locked.
  • No plagiarism. Don't copy an existing project. If your project idea is similar to an existing project, work on that one instead.
  • Be specific. Don't create tasks that are too big to handle. Try to define one that deals with a small subset of our database instead.
  • Quality, not quantity. Don't create dozens of projects at once. Instead, limit yourself to a small number that you really can control.

Once you have read and understood the above, enter a descriptive title for your project into the text-box below and click the create button. On the resulting edit screen, please give an introduction to the project for the other archivists and add any necessary structure to the page.

Make sure to add [[Category:Memory Alpha projects|{{SUBPAGENAME}}]] at the bottom of your project page. Don't forget to add a section on this page with a short description of your project and a link to its page so other users can find and contribute to it.

Permanent projects[]

These projects are open ended and will remain useful indefinitely.


Archivists self identifying their language abilities to facilitate communication and translation.

Episode data project[]

The episode data project is the central repository for the data used in episode, film, and aftershow sidebars. It is divided up into several subprojects.

Episode duty roster[]

Initiated by Vedek Dukat, its goal is to make episode pages more complete, like adding summaries where none exist.


The project space to start a new edition in another language.

Redirect categories[]

The redirect list maxes out at one thousand. This project is to categorize and maintain all redirects on the site to make them easier to find and manage.

Redirects to unnamed lists[]

This is a project to simplify maintenance of incoming links to "unnamed" list pages. The first stage is focused on the Unnamed individuals category, filing redirects into the appropriate category tree. Once the lists of individuals is complete, then other unnamed lists will be addressed.

Incomplete projects[]

47 project[]

Initiated by Archduk3, its goal is to list and find citations for every conceivable reference to the 47 phenomenon in Star Trek.

Anthology Synopses[]

To make sure all anthology short stories are briefly summarized.

Birth years of characters[]

Initiated by LauraCC (talkcontribs). Trying to list all known character's birth years. I know they're listed on the year pages, but this is where you can see how many people were born in any given year at a glance, without having to wade through the other occurrences that year.

Image categories for individuals[]

To coordinate the process of creating categories to sort images by the individual(s) they depict.

Podcast Project[]

A project to standardize existing podcast pages and complete MA's collection of podcast info.

Section Standardization Project[]

Initiated by Mr. Starfleet Command, its goal is to standardize the naming and order of sections across the database.

Timeline reference project[]

Trying to find out what year corresponds to a specific range of stardates and vice versa, without resorting to speculation, by citing any reference to real world dates.

Unknown characters project[]

In contrast to unknown performers, this project is to determine which unidentified characters were portrayed by identified performers.

Completed projects[]

Awards committee[]

This project was started to hopefully institute an awards system into Memory Alpha. Awards are to be suggested and Voted upon, and eventually award winners will be listed on this page.

CCG roster[]

This project is to create card lists for the Star Trek Customizable Card Game and link into Memory Alpha. If you are a collector of this game, please feel free to help out. View the completed lists for the format of the lists so that we can have some conformity. Thanks!

Image title format compliance[]

Initiated by Aatrek, the goal is to move image titles to a standard format for easier linking and searching.

Layout committee[]

On this project page, possible additions and changes to the site layout were suggested and discussed. In the future, please use Ten Forward - Layout for such discussions.

Magazine and book duty roster[]

Progressing from the similar rosters for episodes, novels, and comics, this project is an attempt to catalog and create comprehensive articles for all authorized magazines, as well as obscure books (coloring books, Nitpicker's Guides, pop-up books, etc).

Novel duty roster[]

Started by Jaz, and inspired by the episode duty roster (see above), this page is dedicated to creating a correctly formatted page for every novel, and adding summaries and cover pictures.

Rank insignia files[]

Standardized description pages, citation formatting, and file names of images of rank insignia; expanded to address a number of in-article rank inconsistencies, and add on-screen source images to all user-created files. Completed May 2021.
