Memory Alpha articles are never truely 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 make 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 preceding 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 "~~~~".


Breakdowns - post split...


Home Fires - eBook 25

Home Fires/temp is the 25th eBook in the Star Trek: Starfleet Corps of Engineers series. It is the first story covering the aftermath of the catastrophic Galvan VI incident, where half of the ship's complement were killed.

While the da Vinci undergoes repairs, the crew attempts to put their lives back together. The story follows Domenica Corsi's trip home to Fahleena III, accompanied by Fabian Stevens, and her relationship with her long-estranged father, the captain of a cargo company.


Age of Unreason - eBook 26

Age of Unreason/temp is the 26th eBook in the Star Trek: Starfleet Corps of Engineers series. It continues the reactions of the da Vinci crew following the aftermath of the catastrophic Galvan VI incident, where half of the ship's complement were killed.

While the ship continues to be repaired, Carol Abramowitz, Bart Faulwell, and Soloman try to prevent a civil war on Vrinda. Carol is asked to host the ceremony that will begin a truce between the two warring powers, a ceremony involving an expression of honest, naked emotion, something she has never been particularly comfortable doing, especially after the events of Galvan VI.


Balance of Nature - eBook 27

Balance of Nature/temp is the 27th eBook in the Star Trek: Starfleet Corps of Engineers series. After the catastrophic events at Galvan VI, P8 "Pattie" Blue takes trip home while her world is confronting a crisis that threatens the Nasat's very existence.


Breakdowns - eBook 28

Breakdowns (eBook)/temp is the 28th eBook in the Star Trek: Starfleet Corps of Engineers series, and the final book dealing with the crew's reactions to the aftermath of the catastrophic Galvan VI incident, where half of the da Vinci's complement were killed.

This final chapter focuses on Captain David Gold, as he contacts the families of the twenty-three members of his crew who died under his command to give his personal apologies, and Commander Sonya Gomez, who has to deal with the loss of Kieran Duffy, who had asked her to marry him before dying at Galvan VI.

This is another unusual one. The original FA, Breakdowns, is actually an omnibus, and the individual sub-entries should have each been on their own pages rather than all of their information being on the main page.

I've taken the steps to split the pages out appropriately as follows:

Until this reconfirmation is complete (one way or another), those articles will remain at the '/temp' locations. Once complete, they'll be moved over the redirects, and the Breakdowns article will be slimmed down to match up with the other omnibuses, such as: Breakdowns/temp. This slimmed article will no longer be considered an FA.

The last time this was done was with the Constitution class model (original) and Constitution class model (refit) article split, and this will follow generally the same review criteria. This discussion will mostly work as a standard review, but will cover all four sub-articles, so please remember to specify which one you are talking about (by number or name) if necessary. To address the undisputed & stable requirement in the criteria though, this will run for the full 14 days of inactivity to make sure this is fulfilled. The pages themselves though, both the original and split versions, haven't been edited greatly since the prior discussion occurred, so outside of the rearrangement, the content of these pages hasn't really changed all that much.

If this passes, the current FA blurb will be merged into the original version, as this is still a FA and that blurb is still in use. Also, please remember that minor edits that need a few days (or less) should only require a hold instead of a full objection.

  • Hold on first two (1+2) in order to add in some Memorable Quotes. Otherwise Support on all. -- sulfur (talk) 12:54, October 16, 2015 (UTC)
  • The blurbs need some beefing up, but otherwise Support all, assuming #2 gets those MQs. - Archduk3 13:35, October 16, 2015 (UTC)
  • Support on all, now that all four have memorable quotes. I know that the blurbs need some work yet, but I wanted to get a starting point first. Those can be worked on a bit more... but not too much -- don't want to give away all the plot points (the shortest book is ~60 pages, the longest about 120. -- sulfur (talk) 14:14, October 16, 2015 (UTC)
  • Support all. -- Renegade54 (talk) 14:53, October 16, 2015 (UTC)
  • I've removed a non-canon red link. Support the idea and all of them. Tom (talk) 21:05, October 19, 2015 (UTC)
