I do not think it is appropriate to reveal the full name of "Mistake Not ..." as the revealing of the ship's name serves as kind of a pivotal point in the novel and constitutes a spoiler. It's simply bad taste to reveal the ship's name! (talk) 02:28, 2 December 2012 (UTC)

WP:SPOILER specifically lists that as a terrible reason to remove information. However, "Mistake Not ..." is in fact the name it's referred to by throughout the book, the full name only being given once, so actually I support using the short name - David Gerard (talk) 16:58, 2 December 2012 (UTC)

Long Synopsis[edit]

This is a long and comprehensive synopsis. Is this much detail desirable? NelC (talk) 08:36, 1 June 2014 (UTC)

The guidelines for film synopses suggest 500-700 words, so by that, it's far too long. I'll have a go at editing it down at some point. ACB Smith (talk) 06:37, 4 June 2015 (UTC)
@NelC:Done. It's now readable. ACB Smith (talk) 20:36, 4 June 2015 (UTC)
