Comment on the 'boycott' bit, though: Now that you know Janeway is only absent, and not killed, do you intend to go back and read some of what came out in the interim? Not only will this book be a bit confusing/empty without the backstory, but I think your protest deprived you of some of the better Trek books to come out in a while. The stuff written about her death may be more palatable knowing it's not permanent.
Per my promise to Kirsten Beyer, I ordered all three from Amazon, however I have already read them (I got copies from the used book store).
I think she does owe an acknowledgement to David Gerrold. The use of the amalgamated "being" in Unworthy,
it reminded me very much of the Trek Animated Episode BEM
