^ Thanks for the defense, but I don't think it is necessary.
Square has a point when s/he says that you have to deal with the responses when you post your opinions publicly. And, as I have said a couple of times in the past that's all I see reviews as: the opinion of one person. It's the nature of mankind that we don't agree on everything. And if Square chooses to voice his disagreement in the manner he did, I guess that says more about him/her than about me/my review.
RE his points of criticism:
If Square perceives having one sentence in this short excerpt of the significantly longer review speculating about future novels as reviewing them, than that is his/her opinion, and I'm also free to strongly disagree.
They have "chemistry" in the novels because the novels say they do.
All they have because "the novels say they do" is a relationship.
Janeway and Chakotay just don't work as a couple in my opinion. One of the main problems is probably that Chakotay to me has been little more than a cardboard cut-out character-wise for the majority of the series. Kirsten has remedied that to a certain extent in her previous novels, but it's still hard for me to see what a strong woman like Janeway would see in him.
And regarding your implications that I'm against relationships in Trek novels as a whole, I would appreciate if you wouldn't put words into my mouth, only because I don't agree with one specific pairing.
