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.
Not necessarily. Personally, I thought the manner in which Janeway was killed off was supremely lame and did nothing for the character. Surprising, since Peter David is usually a reliable author, but that book was simply poor.

However.....now that the deed is done, I have to acknowledge that it has opened up a fascinating range of stories, and the subsequent books have been very good at dealing with the consequences of that event.

So I do like the current direction of the books even though I felt Janeway deserved better as a character.
