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, featured articles more than five years old 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]] ===
<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 "~~~~".



Thot Pran, representative of the Breen Confederacy (2375)

The Breen were a reclusive, powerful, and warlike humanoid race, native to the planet Breen in the Alpha Quadrant. Shrouded in mystery, the Breen were also one of the most underestimated races inhabiting that quadrant of space.

Historically, the Klingons were among the first to discover that the Breen didn't tolerate incursions into their space. During the Klingon Second Empire, Chancellor Mow'ga ordered an entire fleet of Klingon warships to invade and conquer the Breen homeworld. The fleet never returned and was never heard from again.

Breen privateers during the 24th century often conducted indiscriminate raids against other Alpha Quadrant species. This included the Breen attack and capture of a Cardassian transport, the Ravinok, in 2366. The survivors of that attack were used for slave labor in Breen-operated dilithium mines on Dozaria.

Even by the 24th century, though, much was still unknown about the Breen and their government, known as the Breen Confederacy. The Federation had limited knowledge of the Breen, however, and was aware of Breen outposts located in Sector 97 in 2368. That same year, Starfleet feared the Breen might have attacked the science vessel SS Vico there.

I've worked hard to improve this article (really, anyone could have carried out the work, though, so this isn't me boasting). The article now seems quite stable, complete, and comprehensive (again, I say that while maintaining an objective perspective). I hope it meets your standards for review. :) --Defiant (talk) 18:50, August 13, 2017 (UTC)

I see no reason to drop it. I've added a note regarding Star Trek: Conquest - my intention was to suggest via this note that the game creators seemed to regard the Breen as less offensive rather than defensive and tactical, as the Klingons have 2 attack and 1 defense (in keeping with their warrior nature), while well-rounded humans have 1 each. --LauraCC (talk) 19:37, August 15, 2017 (UTC)
That was my support vote, btw. --LauraCC (talk) 15:36, August 16, 2017 (UTC)
Support an uphold of the featured status. Tom (talk) 08:07, August 30, 2017 (UTC)
