Nomination for Tuvix

  • For a one-time, character, this is remarkably well-written and descriptive in my opinion.--T smitts 21:43, 5 Aug 2005 (UTC)
  • Support Tobyk777 02:44, 6 Aug 2005 (UTC)
  • Support - Although the article reads a fraction like an episode summary, all information is relevant to the character. --Defiant | Talk 12:37, 9 Aug 2005 (UTC)
  • Support - I was a little reserved at first for the same reason but it is really nicely written and covers all the bases.--Scimitar 14:34, 9 Aug 2005 (UTC)
  • Object, he only appeared in one episode, and not even a good one, how can you object to Picard and support this guy. Cabal
    • We have several examples of single appearance characters whose articles are featured (see: Telek R'Mor). We do not grade articles based on the quality of the episode the character appeared in, but on the quality of the article. I suggest that you please read and familiarize yourself with our featured article nomination policy. Thanks. --Alan del Beccio 22:38, 10 Aug 2005 (UTC)
      • On the basis that Cabal's objection has invalid reasoning, should this nomination go back to the "without objections" section? That's like opposing (for argument's sake) an episode summary only because you didn't like the episode, even if it's written like something worthy of a Pullitzer Prize.--Scimitar 01:02, 11 Aug 2005 (UTC)
        • I'm not sure we have any loopholes to refer to in this case. Policy states: "Votes for featured article candidates must be unanimous, or all objections must be resolved or withdrawn, before the nomination can be accepted and the article listed on the Featured Articles page." However, one note in our guidelines does note that the voter must: "Justify your objections. Don't just say you're opposed to the article being featured without giving a reason why you don't think the article should be featured. After all, without some sort of valid, actionable feedback, how can the article improve?" We may have to make some changes to our policies to account for ignorance. --Alan del Beccio 01:16, 11 Aug 2005 (UTC)
  • Support, and you should look into our policy for nominating featured articles before voting. And Picard appeared in MANY episodes (a series!), which meant it was easier for him to be incomplete, missing the minor details acquired about the years. This page covers a character that appeared in one, and covers everything about that character in that one episode. - AJHalliwell 23:15, 10 Aug 2005 (UTC)
  • Support, this was a great charactre and I'm glad that and artcle was written as well as this could be made for him.--Kahless 19:31, 11 Aug 2005 (UTC)
  • Support, the user objecting has had time enough to retort. I say this be moved back up to the top. Jaf 00:46, 12 Aug 2005 (UTC)Jaf
    • Featured -- single opposition vote was unsupported nor did the user make any effort to contribute to improving the article, as per nomiation policies. --Alan del Beccio 05:50, 16 Aug 2005 (UTC)


OuroborosCobra, please explain your revert. Data should not be removed from articles on MA. This is an attempt to document all relevant Trek info. Jaf 02:38, 19 July 2006 (UTC)Jaf

How is the "Homestead" episode related to the character? There's no reference listed on that episode's page at all to him, so logically if the character was mentioned, there should be at least a reciprocal link. Perhaps a mention of why that extra reference is there? I'm guessing that was O's reasonaing. -- Sulfur 02:56, 19 July 2006 (UTC)

According to the Brax (Talaxian) article, Naomi brings it up. I have not seen the episode in a while, but that sounds familiar to me, I think it's accurate. Jaf 03:04, 19 July 2006 (UTC)Jaf

I did not remember that conversation. Before I removed the reference, I both checked the episode article, and a transcript of the episode. When I checked the transcript, I looked for the word "Tuvix" and it did not show up. I thought I made it clear enough in the summary of my revert that I felt the reference had nothing to do with this article. After seeing your response on Naomi, I did a search of the transcript for conversations with her, and found you to be correct. I apologize, I thought it was an incorrect reference, I was not trying to remove something valid. Nobody's perfect. --OuroborosCobra talk Klingon Empire logo 03:11, 19 July 2006 (UTC)
In that case, we should also add the reference to the Homestead episode (I presume that was the episode where Naomi and Brax discussed it. I'll add that one in now that I've fixed all of the links that should have been to the episode that were to the character :) -- Sulfur 03:15, 19 July 2006 (UTC)
It's possible she refers to the incident without naming the character. Does someone have the script handy? Jaf 03:19, 19 July 2006 (UTC)Jaf
I have the transcript, here is the quote:
NAOMI: And once, there was a transporter accident. Neelix and Commander Tuvok got combined to make a completely different person.
I missed it the first time because I did a word search for "Tuvix", which isn't there. When you said you thought there was a conversation with Noami, I was inspired to search for the word "transporter", and found that. As I said before, by bad. --OuroborosCobra talk Klingon Empire logo 03:25, 19 July 2006 (UTC)
    • this should be worked into the article or something. you've got this on the main page as a feature, but when you get to the article the second reference to the character is only an episode link. you have to come into the talk page to figure out what it is all about.

2 or 3?

The article says: "Only one molecular pattern rematerialized, and formed a healthy organism combining everything regarding Tuvok and Neelix, including organs, enzymes, and memories." Shouldn't this section (as well as any others) also reflect that their patterns were also combined with the orchids they had sampled? Isn't that why Tuvix's original uniform was all floral-patterned up top when he materialized? (And off the subject, what happened to the container the orchids were in? I can see the orchids being combined somehow, at least they're organic, but the container?) — THOR =/\= 17:21, 12 March 2007 (UTC)
