=== [[Darien Wallace]] ===
Another nice piece of work by Jorg. This thing really can't be missing anything. There are some short paragraphs, but this should be expected for a background character. [[User:Jaf|Jaf]] 23:15, 14 December 2006 (UTC)Jaf
* '''Support''': Such memorable quotes. It seems complete or near-complete to me, and it should join the ranks of other featured articles, like [[Guy Vardaman]]. Whoever added the Alternate timelines and Service record headings is a genius.--[[User:Tim Thomason|Tim Thomason]] 23:30, 14 December 2006 (UTC)
* '''Support''': It's an intersting subject that is probably not very well known by most fans. I certainly didn't know Darien Wallace was such a big part. Anyway, this is the kind of cool thing that should be on the front page... not something everyone already knows about. Very nice; very complete; plus some funny. --[[User:Bp|Bp]] 03:17, 15 December 2006 (UTC)
* '''Support''' for the reasons stated above. We actually seem to know a fair amount about this character. I was surprised to see so much material here (pleased of course, this is one of the reasons I love Memory Alpha). I would point out that there seems to be an error that needs to be resolved. At one point in the article, it states that his only line in the series is the word "Good", yet later on it states that he also said "Aye, sir." --[[User:OuroborosCobra|OuroborosCobra]] <sup>[[User Talk:OuroborosCobra|<span style="color:#00FF00;">talk</span>]]</sup> [[Image:Klingon Empire logo.png|18px]] 03:33, 15 December 2006 (UTC)
* '''Support'''. I couldn't think of anything else to add to this page. I've been on the lookout for Wallace references in the novels or comics but wasn't able to find anything. I tweaked the sentence about his only line a little bit. The only line truely spoken by Vardaman as Wallace was "Good". The "Aye, Sir!" was dubbed in later by somebody else, not Guy, and the character is not seen uttering the words. Picard says "set a course for XXX" and we hear Wallace respond off screen. --[[User:Jörg|Jörg]] 06:49, 15 December 2006 (UTC)
* '''Comment''' - Interesting article; I added an infobox, but I think that the birthdate as listed cannot be considered accurate, unless I am missing something. It states a birthdate of stardate 48991.3, which would have him being born AFTER he was assigned to the ''Enterprise''. Perhaps it is 40991.3? Anyone with [[:Image:Darien Wallace personnel file.jpg|better vision]] care to chime in? -[[User:Humu­humu­nuku­nuku­āpuaʻa|Humu­humu­nuku­nuku­āpuaʻa]] 15:51, 15 December 2006 (UTC)
:* Well, it could also be 46991.3. It all doesn't make sense anyway because those personnel files were not meant to be seen up close and contain numerous injokes. Wallace was certainly older then 7 years or 1 year in "[[Eye of the Beholder]]". Evidence from the episodes clearly show that he was assigned to the Enterprise in season 1, for example, though the personnel file states he was assigned to the ship in season 7... --[[User:Jörg|Jörg]] 17:06, 15 December 2006 (UTC)
::*What is MA policy on the dates and info taken from such places? If these screens are never really meant to be seen, should stardates, birthdates, etc. be taken at face value? Honest question. -[[User:Humu­humu­nuku­nuku­āpuaʻa|Humu­humu­nuku­nuku­āpuaʻa]] 18:52, 15 December 2006 (UTC)
* '''Comment''' - I have my reservations about this article. It does not stand out from the crowd as most <nowiki>{{fac}}</nowiki> articles tends to do. It's nothing more that a summing up of events Wallace did. (nothing wrong with that but does that make it worthy candidate ?) Yes I know, because of the lack of information about him, it is difficult to write a comprehensive article but there you go. Just my opinion. (beside that, I did not know the Ent had a serialnumber) -- [[User:Q|Q]] 18:46, 15 December 2006 (UTC)
*'''Support''': No idea what Q is talking about here. The article is well-written, comprehensive, and interesting, which is all that counts. --[[User:Shran|From Andoria with Love]] 06:16, 16 December 2006 (UTC)

Nominations without objections

Nominations with objections

Thomas Riker

Self-nomination. I've spent a great deal of work on this article, and it was listed as peer-reviewed for 2 weeks without any feedback. I think this would make for an excellent Featured Article, and I welcome feedback and/or thoughts. -Humu­humu­nuku­nuku­āpuaʻa 16:37, 20 November 2006 (UTC)

  • Support. Well done, to all who were involved with this article. :) --From Andoria with Love 20:35, 27 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Oppose. Haven't read the text itself yet, but what I immediately noticed was the bad image quality. All three images (Image:Thomas Riker (2369).jpg, Image:Thomas Riker.jpg, Image:Thomas Riker 2371.jpg) currently on the page show serious artifacts from either the bad VHS tape this was taken from, or from JPEG compression. If those exact images are to be kept, I would at least like to see them re-uploaded in better quality. Additionally, I could see one of the two similar "2369" images be removed from the sidebar and another one, perhaps showing Thomas with either Will, Deanna, or both, be added where appropriate. Regarding the sidebar in general, a possible "Featured article" might be a good start to think about what's really important to have on a character sidebar. Is "Created as duplicate" or "Affiliation:Maquis" really something we need to have on the sidebar (instead of in the text)? I'll leave another note once I read the article text itself. -- Cid Highwind 20:07, 29 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Comment: Noted regarding the graphics. I'll see if I can acquire better screenshots. I'm going to copy your comment and add it to the Talk:Thomas Riker/peerreview page. Any willing to assist in improving the article are advised to take the discussion there. -Humu­humu­nuku­nuku­āpuaʻa 15:00, 30 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Comment: I now read the whole text and left another note one the peer review page. If those two points are addressed, I'd support this nomination. -- Cid Highwind 13:46, 1 December 2006 (UTC)


This biography of the franchise's leading extra is suprisingly exhaustive and entertaining. It rivals the articles on James T. Kirk and Spock, which may not be inappropriate since the character appeared in the second TOS pilot, and remained throughout the series run. He has even been through death and life, just as his more illustrious crewmates have done. (I had nothing to do with this article, but it is interesting to note that the bulk of the work has been done by unnamed archivists identified only by IP numbers.)

  • Support. --GNDN 17:41, 28 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Support. Kyle C. Haight 13:06, 30 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Oppose. There sure is a lot of good info here, and I want to see this as a FA, but as is, I suggest a peer review. There are a lot of one-sentence paragraphs that should be merged, as well as some other copyediting. Good suggestion GNDN, let's work on improving this article. -Humu­humu­nuku­nuku­āpuaʻa 16:19, 29 November 2006 (UTC)
  • I'm new to this nomination business, but I do support -Humu­humu­nuku­nuku­āpuaʻa's suggestion regarding peer review. If we go this route, should the nomination be tabled (or de-listed)? In the alternative, could peer review be conducted concurrently? --GNDN 02:39, 3 December 2006 (UTC)
  • Support as is. I love how he has relationships with other background characters. Cracks me up. Jaf 00:16, 15 December 2006 (UTC)Jaf
