^ Fair enough about TOS selling well, but that's still 10 months in a row almost completely devoted to it. There hasn't been that kind of run since the move to one novel a month, as far as I know.
I bet part of it, too, is that the 24th century stuff required more catch up on the part of the editor. If I'd just taken over the Trek line, I'd be working to publish standalones for a while, too, so I could get a handle on the big picture. Possibly I'm assuming too much here, but it makes sense to me.
Either way: I want some DS9!
