Re: VOY Fans and Janeway in the VOY relaunch books (spoilers)
I get the impression that many of those who like the current direction of the books are those who didn't like the TV series and didn't like Janeway either.
As for books being canon or not, for a very long time I stated in several debates that I regarded the books as canon.
And look what I got for that!
Well, I can only speak for myself, but I didn't like Voyager anywhere near as much as other Trek, but I did like it - it just could have been so much better. Any Trek is better than no Trek.
Guilty as charged with Janeway though, and yes, I like the current books...I don't know if I am a representative sample though !
Soon oh soon the light, Pass within and soothe this endless night, And wait here for you, Our reason to be here...
