To clarify, when I mentioned Janeway's "unworthy" death, it wasn't the manner of her demise (helping to save Earth is a big deal) but the novel itself. Even though I enjoyed the comic bookish action of Before Dishonor
, her death didn't seem profound enough. I wasn't as emotionally engaged as I'd have liked to be.
It's been years since I read BD. With the aftermath so well fleshed out in Full Circle
et cetera, perhaps I should have a re-read.
