One last thought...
We only got a little snapshot of Riley's people. I can't see any reason to put that in there for the purposes of this story... so I'm guessing it's foreshadowing something to come later in the novel line? Please?
Personally I felt that
The Riley storyline was a way to wrap up the Borg/Caeliar part of the ongoing storyline and leave the books free to ignore it going forward. Otherwise it did stick out as little more than giving Voyager something to do while the action was going on elsewhere
On the contrary, the fact that Borg space lives with a post-Caeliar reality, with many loose ends, is a plot setup. Where the Caeliar went is still an open mystery. We have indications across several books that they went to the Delta Quadrant, Seven believes they left the Galaxy completely (contradicted in Destiny which indicates the Milky Way is Caeliar-friendly), so "Where are the Caeliar?" remains an open point. We'll see this again.
I think that the next Voyager book will pick up on this story.
Fate protects fools, little children and ships named Enterprise.
But not ships named
