The Rings of Time Review Thread Poll Retrofit

After conferring with Rosalind about the missing poll in the The Rings of Time review thread, it appears it's impossible to add polls to existing threads. However, this new, poll-equipped thread can be merged with the existing one to graft a poll onto it, and so shall be done shortly .

Edit: And there we go. Thanks Rosalind!

Don't fret it, I just decided to be a bit proactive given my newfound poll obsession .

Found a copy at the Barnes and Noble at Newport on the Levee today. First Trek book I've actually been looking forward to in a while...

Don't let me down Greg!

Found one at B+N in Rochester, MI. Still feel somewhat treasonous shopping at that place as my wife was an 18 year employee at Borders.

Re: TOS: The Rings of Time Review Thread

Was up last night till 1:00 AM reading it. Not to get spoilery, but I figured out the minor revelation about the stowaway (but not the major one).

Is it just me or did the Enterprise on the cover look somewhat "generic"? As if the artist couldn't decide on "classic", "refit" or "JJverse" and kind of went with all three.

Picking this one up on Tuesday for my Nook. Love time travel / bending adventures. Have high hopes for this one.

You know, I can see that. Smart marketing move if that were the case.

Re: TOS: The Rings of Time Review Thread

I've had the book less than thirty hours, and I'm already past the halfway point. Very compelling story.

. . . time marches on . . .

Wow. What a ride! That was the fastest I've chewed through 370 pages in a long time.
