Just fyi, I also recommend The Buried Age. Was one of the few Trek books I've read all the way through during the past five or so years. Got it mostly since I heard younger Janeway was in it, tho was also intrigued w/ the Picard story, and quite enjoyed it for Jean-Luc's experiences, and the KJ part was a plus. (But made me wish for more "young Janeway in Starfleet" stories*, lol.) *Besides Mosaic of course, but that book did skim a number of years.
