Dash Rendar faked his death in Shadows of the Empire.

Did Janeway's death help the franchise, not affect it, or hurt it? I think it hurt it by driving away fans who now refuse to buy books. Are they being stupid and missing out some great works by Kristen Beyer? Yes. Should the editors have expected that and not made the bonehead move? Also yes.
Nonsense. They attracted more readers by killing her off than they drove away. There is no such thing as bad publicity, and all the protesters did was raise awareness of the series and raise sales. Speaking for myself, I was completely done with Voyager at the end of Spirit Walk and picked up Full Circle only because of the events of Before Dishonor. Now, Voyager is one of my favorite Trek book series.
