This page describes one of Memory Alpha's policies and guidelines

Please read through the policy below to familiarize yourself with our common practices and rules.
If you have any questions, suggestions, or complaints, please post them on the talk page.

Just about every article in Memory Alpha needs to begin with one or two sentences that state the basics and establish the context of the article. Because each page can be viewed separately, almost at random, it's important to let the reader know what exactly the article is about. An example:

  • The USS Hood (NCC-42296) was an Excelsior-class Federation starship...

Additionally, it's important to use links to help establish the context of the article. For example:

You might think you sound silly when you write a sentence to establish context – everyone knows who James T. Kirk is, right? Well, maybe not – and that's what Memory Alpha is for. So even if it sounds silly, be sure to state the obvious when beginning your new Alpha:Erzeuge Kontext nl:Memory Alpha:Wees duidelijk
