    No, nothing set in stone at least..

    As I said earlier I guess I will try to have a constant rotation between series (so TOS-TNG-DS9-VOY-ENT-two or three book exclusives/miniseries and then start with TOS again) to not get to one-sided, and throw in some older titles (like Warped) in-between the titles of the novel continuity area.

    Isn't Warped, like, incredibly terrible? I'd stick to great ones; there are plenty of those.

    Love the rest of that list :)

    Yes, Warped is incredibly terrible (and that is an incredibly favorable view at it), but a) I want to see how it fairs, and b) we are already extremely top-heavy in the ranking, so why not give poor Michael A. Martin some competition for the bottom places? :rofl:

    FWIW the next DS9 novel after that most likely would be Avatar.

    ^ I've always thought I should re-read Warped and see if I like it better now that I'm older. Maybe this will be my impetus to finally do so.

    Was there ever a thread for James Swallow's Cast No Shadow? I can't seem to find it...

    New classic review thread has been posted:

    DS9: Warped

    Really interested how it fairs and if it is really as hated as it often appeared in the past.

    You made a typo in the poll options - "Avarage" instead of "Average". The code checking for whether a thread contains a poll in in a compatible format is too strict to allow that. I'll modify the code to make it ignore that.

    Edit: Done & report generation re-run.

    Are books starting to disappear off this list? Weirdly, all the Destiny trilogy is still on there, but the books immediately published after Destiny - A Singular Destiny, Over A Torrent Sea, Full Circle, Troublesome Minds - all aren't. Are old threads getting deleted, or was that always true?

    EDIT: Never mind, did some searching of my own - they're all still here, but they didn't have polls. Oh well.

    Hmm I'd say "always been true", e.g. the Full Circle thread has no poll, and the same goes for A Singular Destiny and Over a Torrent Sea. Keep in mind it's not a general index of book threads - it's only the threads with a compatible poll.

    Is it possible to graft compatible polls retroactively onto those 'rogue' review threads?
