Deletion rationale Edit

Little more than a dictionary definition right now, and terribly formatted. --OuroborosCobra talk 18:25, 8 November 2006 (UTC)

Discussion Edit

  • I have formatted and expanded the article. It can be kept now. --From Andoria with Love 18:54, 8 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Agreed, keep. -Humu­humu­nuku­nuku­āpuaʻa 20:05, 8 November 2006 (UTC)
  • I will also agree to keep this one. Whoever, IIRC, there are several references when Spock or Scotty identify themselves as Acting Captain in log entries when Captain Kirk is off the ship. ---- Willie 11:23, 9 November 2006 (UTC)
    • At which point its still a definition with a few a dictionary. Can we expand on this? What are the ramification for acting captain's actions, what are the qualification's (except in "The Naked Now")? The incidents of acting captain's can be limited to the individual characters articles if its just going to be a list to episodes that it happened. I dont know why, but i somehow find this unencyclopedic. --6/6 Subspace 12:47, 11 November 2006 (UTC)
  • ...butit can be expanded upon at a later time, so no worries. :) --From Andoria with Love 23:44, 12 November 2006 (UTC)

Admin resolution Edit

Kept, but needs more information to transform it from a dictionary term with a few examples to an encyclopedia article. --From Andoria with Love 23:44, 12 November 2006 (UTC)
