Something went wrong when I copied the text. I have no idea what. Unfortunately now it is too late to correct the hiccups.

Re: Full Circle Review Thread (Spoilers)

I'm going to add just one thing...Janeway is seen going off with a Q in Before Dishonor.

The last person we "saw" doing this was Vash...and she's clearly not dead.

And I really hope that's not a hint for some miraculous resurrection... I thought the direction VOY was going in FC was a well rounded one - especially since Janeway and Seven tended to overshadow every other character in the TV-series.

At least leave her "dead" for quite a few novels yet so that Chakotay can finally come into his own and really be Janeway's equal.

Are you by any chance the Margaret Clark who would know if a resurrection is in store?

Not quite the same thing, since Vash was a live woman who merely chose to travel with Q through the physical universe, while Janeway, when last we saw her, was a dead woman whose disembodied essence, consciousness, spirit, katra, whatever had been preserved by Lady Q. So bringing Vash back was simply a matter of dropping her off somewhere, while bringing Janeway back would entail a full-on resurrection. That is theoretically within the Q's powers, but presumably it's not as casual a thing.

That is Margaret Clark the editor of Star Trek books, yes. (unless her account was hacked or something...)

You had to say it, didn't you?

Not. Dead.

but was janeway's body truly destoyed during the destruction of the cube or could it have been removed by Q before it ka-blooey?

i honestly don't remember if that is feasible or not.

Her body had been badly compromised by Borg technology well before then, and the epilogue made it pretty clear that Janeway was no longer a living corporeal being but was beginning a journey to another phase of existence. Though presumably the Q have the power to reverse that if they had a reason.

Hmmm. Is that "can she be clothed, pretty please" or "can she be clothed pretty, please"? The power of the comma . . .

I am now imagining the Q using Janeway as a giant Barbie.

Thanks, Auntie.

Margaret

I speak as one of many huge fans of Janeway.

Margaret, if that's a hint at a possible resurrection, a lot of people would be very very happy indeed.

I would start buying the books again brand new to once again support Pocket books if Janeway was brought back.

but not just that, I realise my drop in the ocean may not make much difference (although a few others I know feel the same) it would restore my faith in the TPTB a little bit.

Just wanted to balance things a little bit after the couple of negative posts immediately after Margaret's! As anyone who has even dipped a toe into the debates on here can attest, (and I hope not to turn this thread which is meant to be about Full Circle into one, and yes I have read it I got it secondhand and it was a struggle it was too sad) there are plenty of us out here who would love to see Janeway back.

Re: Full Circle Review Thread (Spoilers)

^^^ Seconded. Pocket has many authors who are more than competent and who would do the task justice. If you can suspend your belief sufficient to buy the Great Brid of the Galaxy hatching out of a planet another Trek resurrection is well within what seems possible in the TrekVerse.
