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)

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)
