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 "~~~~".


Christine Chapel

Christine Chapel 2271

Doctor Chapel in the 2270s

Christine Chapel was a Human Starfleet officer aboard the USS Enterprise, under the command of Captain James T. Kirk during its original five-year mission of exploration.

Chapel began her career aboard the USS Enterprise as head nurse to Chief Medical Officer Leonard McCoy, and in doing so sacrificed a promising career in biology with several university degrees in research medicine. Chapel had abandoned her earlier career plans in the hopes that a assignment in Starfleet would one day reunite with her with Dr. Roger Korby, her estranged fiancé. Even while she sought to locate Korby, Chapel was deeply infatuated with the Enterprise's half-Vulcan science officer, Spock. While her attraction never interfered with her professional duties, it was an ongoing source of tension and bemusement throughout the five-year mission.

Following the Enterprise's five-year mission of exploration, she finished her own medical degree, and was promoted to chief medical officer of the refitted Enterprise, now under the command of Willard Decker. However, when Dr. McCoy returned to the ship during the V'Ger crisis, she willingly stepped down to allow McCoy to return as chief medical officer. Chapel was later re-assigned to Starfleet Headquarters as a commander.

Uphold this article as featured, pending an expansion including adding Korby to the "relationships" section, a re-write of the section detailing her actions in TAS: "The Terratin Incident", which seems rather long, and a bit repetitive ("Chapel then had an idea that McCoy thought was a great idea..." - makes me think of the Grinch line LOL - And then Christine got a wonderful, awful idea...). I'm not just suggesting this and bowing out; I added a section on her relationship with McCoy.

For a character who was an important regular, not just a Joe Redshirt, her article is mostly chronological, with no section for character insights. (There are a few if you look.) --LauraCC (talk) 20:48, May 9, 2016 (UTC)

Also, could we possibly get a better picture of her for the top of the sidebar? Her face is pretty shadowed in that one. --LauraCC (talk) 20:55, May 9, 2016 (UTC)

Thanks Defiant for helping with the terratin incident section. I've filled out her relationships, but I think the career section could use some weeding as it mentions things I touch on later. --LauraCC (talk) 18:28, May 12, 2016 (UTC)
