Re: Typhon Pact: Zero Sum Game Review thread

Finally! My Trek drought is ending. I haven't picked up a new Trek novel in over a year. The last ones I read were VOY: Unworthy and TTN: Synthesis. It's nice to have some new Trek to read once again. My local Borders doesn't have it in stock yet, but I'll check back in a few days.

That's the one nice thing about going back and reading some of the old stuff I've never read. Even when there's no new book that month, I still get stories I haven't read yet.

I liked the review threads people used to make that had polls at the top, for people to rate the book. Can we close this one and make one of those, or am I the only person that cares about stuff like that? haha.

I'm with you though; I'm excited. The first 24-th century full in-continuity novel since almost exactly a year ago. And David Mack to boot!
I'm pretty sure JD can add a poll to the thread. At the very bottom of the page, on the left-hand side should be an "add a poll to this thread" button.

You listening, JD?

nope, not even moderators can add polls to threads in vB, you'll have to have admin access for that.

one option is for someone to start a thread with a poll, and either LS or myself merge the two threads.

Re: Merge me with the Zero Sum Game review thread!

Yeah, sorry about forgetting to do a poll in my thread. I really meant to, but then once I actually got around to posting the thread I completely forgot about it. So please Mods, merge this with my thread.

It's not that I want to vote, it's that I like to see how everyone else votes. It's interesting to compare to, for instance, amazon.com reviews. I find it neat. Either way not a big deal, but it had an easy fix, so why not?
