Review (09 May - 10 June 2016, Deadlocked) Edit

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)

Review (19 Mar - 06 Apr 2018, Upheld) Edit

This article was originally featured in 2005 and at that time was considerably smaller than it has become in the 13 years since. It appears to me to be complete as it can be, with a detailed in-universe section and lots of background information. I think this should continue to be an example of MA's best work. --| TrekFan Open a channel 14:18, March 19, 2018 (UTC)

    • Support. I went over the article, adding/removing links and reworded some parts which didn't sound very encyclopedic to me. Note I also removed references to her being the CMO, since as far as I can tell this is only from the novelization. Overall, it's a comprehensive article with a nice amount of background material.

Animated Series? Edit

Should info from TAS be included? It's not canon.--Roofus 01:50, 13 Jan 2006 (UTC)

Yes, see Memory Alpha:Content policy. --Vedek Dukat Talk | Duty Roster 02:06, 13 Jan 2006 (UTC)

Christian DucheauEdit

Take a look at this:


Seems Christine Ducheaux is a rejected name for Chapel, which would probably mean that this name is a mixup by Bjo Trimble when writing the concordance. Remove it? --Myko 08:12, 13 December 2006 (UTC)

I would say keep the article and just note that there may have been a mix-up with the names. For all we know, it could just be a coincidence (probably not, but still, there is the possibility). --From Andoria with Love 08:43, 13 December 2006 (UTC)

Chapel's rank Edit

What was Chapel's rank on the Original Series? In the Animated Series it looks like she had the single gold braid of a lieutenant, but I don't recall seeing a rank braid on her sleeve in the live-action series. That would make her either an Ensign or a non-com. If she was an Ensign than a promotion to Lieutenant (and later Lieutenant Commander) would make sense, but a non-com would fit with the description of her joining Starfleet to look for her fiancee. Any definitive answers? 19:50, 6 March 2009 (UTC)

No, but her biography in The Making of Star Trek (which I assume is based on the writers guide) indicates that she was (supposed to be) a lieutenant (jg?) in TOS. Excerpt: "her rank is Lieutenant, and she will probably move up in Star Fleet medical service." Otherwise, I couldn't find anything in dialog suggesting her being an officer or non-com, except one instance where she gave someone an order to follow some medical suggestion... --Alan 20:27, 6 March 2009 (UTC)

Chapel's Marital Status Edit

I'd have to question listing her as Roger Korby's widow - my understanding is that they never actually married? --Sahviere 17:46, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

Chapel in Star Trek (2009) Edit

I heard McCoy call for medication from a "Nurse Chapel" in the scene with Kirk in Sickbay just after his hands swelled up. Just to say. -- 20:10, December 19, 2009 (UTC)

Yes, and that reference is noted at Christine Chapel (alternate reality), linked from the note at the top of this article. :) Setacourse 20:21, December 19, 2009 (UTC)

Mothering instinct Edit

I respectfully question the reference to Chapel's "mothering instinct" as regards the Starnes expedition children from "And The Children Shall Lead." Her activities in comforting, distracting and psycho-socially assessing them are all aspects of the practice of nursing. 11:07, July 17, 2013 (UTC)

You're right, and in any case it would be a stretch to say that she had mothering instincts just because she was put in charge of the children and happened to be good at it. (and on a sidenote, we don't know for sure the part of her never having become a mother too I think). I've rewritten the section. -- Capricorn (talk) 16:40, October 5, 2013 (UTC)


While her attraction never interfered with her professional duties...

Not true, as I've added her hesitation from "Operation -- Annihilate!". --LauraCC (talk) 16:34, May 10, 2016 (UTC)

Medical ethics violationEdit

Isn't her usage of the love potion crystals on Spock against his will a severe violation of medical ethics, something Kirk would have to address in a court martial? --LauraCC (talk) 19:17, May 10, 2016 (UTC)
