Re: VOY: The Eternal Tide by Kirsten Beyer Review Thread (Spoilers!)

Kinda didn't like the arbitrary nature of the deaths. Losing half the fleet without much struggle or impact felt kinda empty/shallow, and limits the whole concept we had going, and the characters we just spent so much time putting together. Make a whole book about rebuilding the one crashed ship, and it has about 5 pages of screen time before it's lost again.

Chakotay gets a death pass, Eden's uncle gets a freebie, 4 ships stay lost. And Amanda Rogers written off almost without comment/impact.

A lot of this one just felt hollow. The Janeway parts felt fine, didn't have an issue there, just lost a lot of others without the emotional impact, and it was flip a coin whether Q gives them a do-over...
