I think what Protectors does with the Chakotay/Janeway relationship will make you a lot happier than you might expect, based on the ending of Eternal Tide. Give this all a second chance to settle before you make up your mind...
I'll take your word for it Thrawn. I trust your judgment.
Like I said I intend to read Protectors as soon as I finish Greg Cox's latest, but it might get pushed back until I read the latest Christopher's Enterprise novel as it's due in my mail box tomorrow. In any case it will be soon and I'll let you know what I think about the Chakotay/Janeway relationship.
And Enterpriserules...perhaps "doomed" was too strong a word. I would be happy to read whatever she writes but I just would like to see what she could do elsewhere in the Trek universe. If she would be happy and fulfilled to write only for Voyager then that's what she should do.
