Reviewer: Zanimum (talk · contribs) 01:24, 15 November 2013 (UTC) I actually had prepared notes on most of this article back in September, but forgot that I started to review it.


  • Lt Cmdr. Worf... is it standard to use the abbreviated position titles on Wikipedia, in the first reference to a character?
  • I've expanded it. Miyagawa (talk) 20:16, 16 November 2013 (UTC)
  • The link to the USS Defiant actually links to the ninth season episode of that name.
  • I've fixed the link. Miyagawa (talk) 20:16, 16 November 2013 (UTC)

Two changes made direct to the article, please see the history section. Otherwise, plot is good to go.

Directing, cinematography and music

  • “Original tribbles writer David Gerrold”... referencing the episode, you should be capitalizing Tribbles, perhaps even quotation marks around the singular word?
  • Is it possible to briefly mention that Jonathan West wasn't an "out of the blue" choice, that he was their director of photography, and had directed 1 TNG and 2 DS9 episodes before that? Even just the DP bit.
  • I've added a source and mentioned that in the article. Miyagawa (talk) 20:16, 16 November 2013 (UTC)

Filming and casting

  • Deidre L. Imershein's role as a crew member is mentioned in the infobox, but should be reiterated in this section. First time reading through, I thought that she might have been playing a pleasure girl again, on the space station.
  • “friend of one of the crew” can be confusing, considering the staff of a starship are a crew. Perhaps “series crew”, “production crew”, or something?
  • Changed to production crew. Miyagawa (talk) 20:16, 16 November 2013 (UTC)

Reception and home media release

  • Who did the tribble bus promotion? Paramount? The broadcaster (was it UPN)? Sci-Fi?
  • It was Paramount. I've clarified. (It went out on syndication so wasn't tied exclusively to any particular network - Paramount Television being the production company). Miyagawa (talk) 20:16, 16 November 2013 (UTC)
  • Kudos on explaining the Nielsen ratings (specifically shares) for readers.

There's for starts. -- Zanimum (talk) 01:24, 15 November 2013 (UTC)

Thanks! Miyagawa (talk) 20:16, 16 November 2013 (UTC)

Until I can get back to you with the rest of the review, Checklinks is pointing out an error with the Emmys site. Also, new since I first ran the thing a few minutes ago, a connection era with another site, but I presume that will resolve itself by the time you read this. -- Zanimum (talk) 18:53, 20 November 2013 (UTC)

I've fixed the Emmy site - they changed the website layout and inserted an extra little bit into the url for the awards database. The other site seems to be working now. Miyagawa (talk) 19:54, 20 November 2013 (UTC)

Done another read over, passing. -- Zanimum (talk) 21:50, 23 November 2013 (UTC)
