An Open Invitation to Janeway Fans

Hello folks,

I've just received a listing of the panels for this year's Shoreleave Convention at the Hunt Valley Marriott near Baltimore, MD. The event is scheduled for July 8-10, so I know this is short notice, but for any who live in the area or are planning to attend, I will be hosting a panel called "Bring Back Janeway" most likely to take place at some point on Saturday, July 9. When I get the exact time, I will update here.

It is my hope that this will be an opportunity for fans who have been disappointed by Janeway's death in Before Dishonor, and the continuation of the Voyager novels to express their thoughts and concerns and to discuss with me in more detail the process invovled in creating these stories.

As I am not on Facebook, or Twitter, and don't post regularly on many other fan sites, I would appreciate it if those here would pass along this information to the various Bring Back Janeway communitites.

I look forward to speaking with you all.

Best,
Kirsten Beyer

Ooh exciting! If only it were another weekend.
I shall pass the word along, though to people I know going

LOL. Agreed.

I probably can't make it, but thank you for hosting such a panel. That's pretty cool, plus it'd be fun to get insight on the writing process. Word will be passed along.

Thanks for the heads-up!

EDIT: Suggested attire for the occasion should be a Kevlar vest and flame-retardant underpants.

There will be security at this thing, right?

I'll echo everyone else here: Kirsten, you have balls of steel. Good luck!

Re: An Open Invitation to Janeway Fans

Thanks for the invitation, Kirsten. I truly would like to come, but sadly I'm too far away from there. I doubt that many fans will be able to come so quickly to Baltimore, because they live far away or their responsibilities don't allow them to go.

Is it possible also to send any questions or statements to you or to the convention team, which would be read at your panel? Maybe this way we could get answers to our questions and say our opinion too.

No... suggested attire is a HOUSE OF JANEWAY t shirt!

Alas... family are arriving that weekend, or else I'd be there!

Hmmm... why the panel? Are we trying to stir up support for the idea among fans or among the publishers?

ETA: The lady doesn't need a kevlar vest since SHE didn't kill Janeway.

Of course... she hasn't brought her back yet either.

Hmmmm.

if you bring Janeway back, i swear i will never buy another VOY novel again. in fact, i might stop buying all 24C novels and only buy Vanguard.

Well, since I have vowed never to buy another "Voy" novel until KJ is honorably returned, then my vote (and many others) cancels you out, sorry, a large number of people want Kathryn Janeway back (we know she lives), and sooner the better.

Kirsten, I'm already buying and enjoying your work, but I would very much like to see Janeway return.

Me too. Although I'd probably still do the other series, just not Voyager. A lot of good stuff has been done with the characters following Janeway's death, and bringing her back would pretty much undo all of it.

Re: An Open Invitation to Janeway Fans

I agree. Without Janeway the characters have grown so much more than they ever could have, and that is a result of her death.

I plan on attending this one Ms. Beyer!

Good point! I wish I had a real HoJ T-shirt.

Honestly, though, I'd love to see Janeway back. Does that make this thread about a 50-50 split now?
