Re: Do fans want the prime timeline back? Part 2: Poll edition.

True story: Many years ago, an original sf novel fell into the hands of a copyeditor who didn't seem to realize that that Star Trek and science fiction were not one and the same, so he want through and "corrected" the manuscript to make it consistent with what he knew about Star Trek, changing the book's own terminology to "phasers," "warp drive," "Starfleet," etc.

Needless to say, all of this had to be undone before the book could be published!
