October 12, 2006 Good article nominee Not listed

GA failed[edit]

1. Well written? OK (except the lead part)
2. Factually accurate? Fail (needs more references)
3. Broad in coverage? OK
4. Neutral point of view? Pass
5. Article stability? Pass
6. Images? OK

Additional comments :

  • Lead section is too long (See WP:LEAD) and adds original material/new material not talked through the article.
  • Not enough references.
  • The Games published by FASA included: section should be renamed to something like Published games or FASA games.
  • In this Games published by FASA included: section one would wish to find a description of every games.
  • Since most of the wikilinked articles are redlinks, there should be some explanation of the redlink-words to help the reader.
  • Under the new commercial direction and with the Mort's capital injection, the company diversified into books and miniature figures. is not well prosed.
  • Instead of writing figures or miniature figures shouldn't they be figurines like in Warhammer games or D&D games?
  • I seriously doubt the article is broad enough.
  • If one has time maybe adding a picture or two would help the article too even if they are well-described fair use pictures.

The "Microsoft destroyed FASA" interview[edit]

Weissman recently had an interview with where he said that Microsoft essentially destroyed FASA upon its acquisition. The article can be found here: (Psychoneko (talk) 21:33, 29 December 2009 (UTC))


The article claims FASA "closed" yet later on it claims the company is still active but as a company that is simply holding and licensing IP's, isn't contradicting? --Elven6 (talk) 18:26, 7 January 2010 (UTC)

Star Trek RPG[edit]

FASA did not produce the first licensed Star Trek RPG. That honor goes to Heritage Models who produced "Star Trek: Adventure Gaming in the Final Frontier" in 1978.

Self-reference & nuclear device[edit]

Actually, the said nuclear device in Shadowrun novel Brightlight' (also refered in several Shadowrun RPG sourcebooks) was detonated in the power plant on Cermak Road. FASA offices then were on at 1100 W Cermak Road, right in front of the plant, not on Van Buren. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:58, 30 July 2011 (UTC)

What does the acronym FASA stand for?[edit]

After it stopped being “Freedonian Aeronautics and Space Administration,” of course. Felicity4711 (talk) 21:35, 27 January 2015 (UTC)
