do we capitalize The The in The Doctor?[edit]

At the article Doctor (Star Trek: Voyager), whenever the character is referenced, it's as The Doctor. However other articles, such as Tuvix, use the lowercase, as in the Doctor. 24.11.173.84 (talk · contribs) just de-capitalized all instances of the character's name at Projections (Star Trek: Voyager), and I wondered what our SOP was regarding it. — fourthords | =Λ= | 22:38, 19 January 2015 (UTC)

Based on the StarTrek.com bio, it seems that it isn't normally capitalised. At least that's what it appears to be here: [1]. Miyagawa (talk) 23:55, 19 January 2015 (UTC)
I also recall it lower-case in licensed fiction. --EEMIV (talk) 01:17, 20 January 2015 (UTC)

The Gamesters of Triskelion[edit]

There's currently a discussion at that article, over weither or not to apply a Notability tag. GoodDay (talk) — Preceding undated comment added 15:45, 28 January 2015

Polishing up "Space Seed" for FA[edit]

Hey chaps, working on getting "Space Seed" up to FAC-ready status. I've gone through and done a copyedit on most of it, although it can still use more eyes. Going to check sources too to make sure things haven't gotten knocked out of place. References themselves seem fine, although the citation templates might need work, and images don't appear to be an issue—if you've got any other feedback, love to hear it here or on the talk page.

Cool - it'll be a good test for the rationale for the black and white TOS images that a couple of us have been trawling off eBay as originals are posted. Let me know if you get a query on that during FA and I'll jump in to explain. Miyagawa (talk) 18:02, 4 February 2015 (UTC)
In fact, seeing as I have all the sources, I'm happy to co-nominate with you in case any of them get questioned. Miyagawa (talk) 18:06, 4 February 2015 (UTC)
Well, you did a fair amount of work on the article too, so I wasn't going to try and steal it away from you :P I've asked an old wiki-friend to assist with another copyediting pass. Der Wohltemperierte Fuchs(talk) 15:11, 6 February 2015 (UTC)
No worries! Plus - the more eyes the better I find. Sometimes you can be too close to a subject and not see the issues. Miyagawa (talk) 15:58, 6 February 2015 (UTC)

Mind Meld[edit]

I was wondering if anybody would be willing to take charge of the Mind Meld GAN since Neelix has retired? I completed the review and the concerns I mentioned were only relatively minor, so it wouldn't take too much work to bring that article up to GA. It would be a shame to close that GAR due to inactivity... Jaguar 16:57, 9 February 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for posting - I've picked this up on behalf of Neelix. Miyagawa (talk) 17:44, 9 February 2015 (UTC)
I have returned to editing Wikipedia and was very pleased to see the article achieve good status. I have nominated the article for featured status here. Any constructive comments there would be greatly appreciated. Neelix (talk) 12:06, 19 March 2015 (UTC)

Open Library[edit]

Colleagues,

I'm probably behind the times, but during the course of answering some questions about the FA nom of "Space Seed" I stumbled across Open Library - https://openlibrary.org/. The reason why I'm posting this here is because they have a number of Trek non-fiction resources that could be used to expand articles and I thought you might want to know that they're there. Here's the list of ones I've spotted so far which you can borrow as books readable online.

  • The Star Trek Encyclopedia
  • I Am Spock
  • Beyond Star Trek
  • The Star Trek The Next Generation Companion
  • Star Trek: Aliens and Artifacts
  • Trek: The Next Generation
  • Get A Life
  • Star Trek: Chronology
  • The Star Trek Compendium
  • Star Trek Speaks
  • To The Stars
  • Star Trek Movie Memories
  • Star Trek Celebrations
  • Star Trek Memories
  • The Making of Star Trek
  • Star Trek Creator
  • Shatner (his 1970s autobiography)
  • The Star Trek Interview Book
  • Star Trek and Star Wars Collectables
  • The Man Who Created Star Trek
  • Star Trek Worlds

As you can see, it's a bit of a mother lode really - and it's all free to access. Plus that isn't included several more books which I already had access to via Questia. Because it includes two books on Gene Roddenberry, as well as two very early books (the interview book and the making of star trek) I'm seriously considering having a go at that article. But there is plenty of sources there for all manner of things. Miyagawa (talk) 10:57, 21 March 2015 (UTC)
