FA status Edit

Nomination (09 June - 23 June 2004, Success) Edit

Deep Space 9

Self-nomination. A detailed article about the history of DS9, plus a description of its structure. It could probably use some minor additions for incidental facts and the like, but it's complete enough to deserve Featured Article status! -- Dan Carlson 20:00, 9 Jun 2004 (CEST)

  • Seconded. Ottens 20:15, 9 Jun 2004 (CEST)
  • Seconded. -- Redge 20:25, 9 Jun 2004 (CEST)
  • Support. -- Michael Warren 22:57, 10 Jun 2004 (CEST)

Reconfirmation (01 May - 18 May 2012, Success) Edit

A featured article from back in June 2004. Haven't completely read it, so I'm not yet sure if we should keep it. - Archduk3 19:16, May 1, 2012 (UTC)

  • Did a once over one this and created a blurb, it seems to still be FA material, so support. - Archduk3 19:25, May 3, 2012 (UTC)
  • Support. Still seems to be a good FA. 31dot 01:10, May 9, 2012 (UTC)
  • Support; room for improvement, but it's an acceptable FA, IMO. --Defiant 21:27, May 13, 2012 (UTC)

Deep Space Nine weaponsEdit

How does Deep Space Nine have 48 phaser arrays on rotary mounts; 36 phaser emitters on stationary mounts and 3 phaser emitters on sliding mounts? The 48+ torpedo launchers, 5,000+ photon torpedoes (after 2372 refit) seems correct, but I tried to count the phasers myself and got the following: 36 Fixed Weapon Emplacement phasers (the ones on the habitat ring) 18 Sail Tower phasers (the ones on the aforementioned Sail towers) and 33 other phasers 16:27, February 7, 2013 (UTC)

Proximity to the Wormhole Edit

In the episode DS9: "Emissary", after the station was moved to the approximate location of the wormhole, Dax says "Major... I'm reading a huge neutrino disturbance...fifteen kilometers off the forward docking ring." Yet the article claims DS9 was positioned "approximately a thousand kilometers from its event horizon." I'm just curious, where is this latter figure coming from? I can't find any mention of it being located that far from the wormhole in the episode referenced. - Dimitri the Echidna (talk) 08:02, October 24, 2014 (UTC)

Split off layout info Edit

Similar to how Spacedock and Spacedock-type are different articles, this and "Terok Nor-type" should be different articles. - Archduk3 13:35, April 10, 2018 (UTC)

Agreed. How will that affect the FA stuff for the article? (Asking for a friend). --Alan (talk) 13:49, April 10, 2018 (UTC)

The last time we split a FA both parts were reconfirmed, as it was called at the time, and made FAs, see Constitution class model (original) and Constitution class model (refit). A large split like this would force a review of this article. I'm assuming the type/class article will be formatted differently enough, and hopefully contain more info, to make that a separate nomination and not a review. - Archduk3 14:00, April 10, 2018 (UTC)
