A fact from Star Trek: The Next Generation (season 1) appeared on Wikipedia's Main Page in the Did you know? column on 11 November 2012 (check views). The text of the entry was as follows: "Did you know
Will Wheaton and Michael Dorn didn't play recurring roles during the first season, but main characters. There were nine actors in the main cast, not seven.--Chamarasca (talk) 00:56, 14 March 2013 (UTC)
Two official sources state otherwise. Miyagawa (talk) 09:58, 14 March 2013 (UTC)
I apologise for my poor English. Look at the very credits of the chapters. I think they are official sources. I am writing a similar article in Spanish WP.--Chamarasca (talk) 12:46, 14 March 2013 (UTC)
The first five episodes have rather verbose summaries and the rest have one or two sentence summaries at best. It's not clear why the first five deserve longer summaries, or the rest don't.
However based on what I've seen elsewhere on Wikipedia (shows like the X-Files or Firefly), it appears that the shorter summaries are preferred. Any objections to shortening the first five summaries? 87Fan (talk) 17:22, 31 May 2013 (UTC)
None at all, in fact if you go back into the history of the article you'll see the shorter versions. At the time it was suggested they should be larger, and so I started expanding them but I got distracted with other tasks and never finished. You're right though, the X-Files ones are shorter and that is probably the style we should aim for. Miyagawa (talk) 17:28, 31 May 2013 (UTC)
What is so problematic about longer synopses? As for examples, The X-Files and Firefly episodes need a little more expansion in a brief manner, and pages of Firefly episodes are poor. --George Ho (talk) 19:15, 16 September 2013 (UTC)
Well the second season article is currently up at WP:GAN, so I'll roll whatever changes are asked for there back into the season one article (as once this is a GA too, then we can get the entire first season up as the project's first good topic). Miyagawa (talk) 20:16, 18 September 2013 (UTC)
BTW, nothing is wrong with long synopses. The problem was their uneven nature. We decided to be consistent within our own article and settled on short, but could be convinced to go long. I'm a fan of Miyagawa's proposal to see what the outcome of the Good Article nomination is (good luck!) 87Fan (talk) 20:37, 18 September 2013 (UTC)
