Previous ships called Independence

Support as Nominator: One that I rewrote from the ground up a little while ago. However, it shows a summary of each ship to have borne the name, a pic for most of them (none could be found for the earliest ones), hopefully insightful prose into the history of a name that has long been a presence in both the US Navy and more recently the UFOP fleet. - Lt Cmdr.

Comment': I'd recommend using the "thumb" or "frame" tags for the images to clean them up. Also, perhaps using the subtitles as links to the ships, instead put a "Main article..." indented link, even if it's on WP? --Wolf /talk page 00:57, 16 December 2008 (EST)
Response: I've always found "Thumb" looks ugly on the page, while frame seems to be incompatable with scaling, which is used in every single one of the pics. As such, I'm very hesitant to use thumb and frame is impractical. - Lt Cmdr. SalakUSS TigerTalk 12:55, 30 December 2008 (EST)
Thumbnails are still the best way to size an image with a caption. I think we should stick with that. --Wolf /talk page 13:29, 30 December 2008 (EST)
Support: I think the pics look fine and this is definitely the best example of a 'Previous Ships...'

article I've seen. I like having a mixture of Featured Articles & think this one fits the bill - well-researched, good example of how Trek fits in with the 'real world'. Hutch 13:00, 17 January 2009 (EST)

Support: The pictures don't appear to scream at me, and the article is well-written and concise. I can't find much, if anything wrong. Lance 13:33, 1 October 2009 (EDT)
