Re: Is the Vanguard series over? (Possible spoilers)

Can we geta moderator to put in the spoiler code in the first post? Or at least change the topic to what the spoiler is really about. That way, others won't have Paths spoiled.

Again, I apologize for not being more specific about spoilers in the title, but I mention Paths of Disharmony in the first line of my post, so I feel like changing the title of the thread to "Is the Vanguard series over? (Paths of Disharmony spoilers)" instead of the parenthetical "(Possible Spoilers)" really doesn't do anything and actually makes the title of the thread more spoilery. Also, I don't get into specifics at all about what happens in PoD, just that it mentions the meta-genome. I don't even mention the application of the meta-genome in the book. Again, if I ruined anybody's reading experience I truly apologize, but maybe we should all

Done and done - I just preordered the Vanguard books already on Amazon. Like I said earlier Vanguard is my favorite Star Trek book series (and you are one of my favorite writers), so I'm very, very excited to hear this. Also, thanks to everyone for all the replies and information, you guys are great sources of knowledge, and again if my spoiler-warning skills are inadequate, I apologize.

No, because I agree with this (and from what I know of Rosalind she probably does too):

*emphasis mine*

Also, while I saw the requests to change the thread title here, really the way to actually bring something to the attention of moderators is to hit the notify mod button, not just posting in the thread. While I endeavor to read as much of the two forums here I moderate as I can, I don't get to all of the threads all of the time, and neither does Rosalind.

Except the notify button is hard to recognize as such, since it doesn't say "Notify," it's just a little red-and-white triangle tucked away in the corner. I never even knew there was a notify button until a mod mentioned it in a recent thread. Maybe a board redesign would clear things up?

You can be the one to bring that up to Antony.

Re: Is the Vanguard series over? (Possible spoilers)

Well it's a rock and a hard place with this one isn't it?

As it is, if you read the thread you might unwittingly discover that PoD contains reference to the meta-genome plot element of Vanguard.

But if you put (PoD spoilers) in the title then you give away to everyone that PoD involves some Vanguard-related plot point...

PoD doesn't even contain any Vanguard spoilers anyway, it just uses the metagenome as a plot point.

And? That's not that big a deal. Just because you know it's referenced somehow, that doesn't mean you know specifically how, or how big or small a role it plays. It's hardly enough to "spoil" the story in any meaningful way.

Thanks for reminding me of the notify button. I totally forgot about it.

Anyway, to get sort of back on topic, anyone have any spoilers for just Vanguard?
