Sign in the new petition for Bring Back Janeway, please!

http://www.change.org/petitions/pocket-books-bring-back-admiral-kathryn-janeway-to-star-trek-voyager

Here is a new petition to sign for all who want to get Janeway back to Trek universe a member of our Bring back Janeway Facebook group had started yesterday.

It will send an email to Pocket Books Publicity as well as Simon & Schuster's Publicity email addresses with every signature. And, if I can find individual emails to send copies of the signatures to CBS and to the individuals named on the letter writing campaign page I can add those in as well. If people start to sign the petition here, it will send emails to the TPTB and make a little noise in support of KJ.
You have to fill in a really small form completely, but it works too if you add e.g. "sorry, my secret" instead of the address if you don't want to share it there.
But it shouldn't contain only nonsense, because Pocket Books gets a notification email about every signing in to our petition and then it won't be taken seriously.

Every Janeway fan is very welcome to join our Facebook group Bring Back Kathryn Janeway.

We are still at it because that is the way you get what you want. You Don't Give Up, period. I've been doing this three or four years now, I will never give up. It took us ten years to get the original Star Trek back but we did and we will get this.

This is going to happen, you can bet on it.

I'd suggest to you: Simply accept that other people have another opinion and other imaginations about Trek than you.
Either sign in here when you are agreeing or don't when you aren't: It is so simple.
Save your time and power to spend it on other places.

This petition is running no matter if anybody here says "good" or "crap" to it. It is not depending on anybody's agreement or comments HERE, because it is an action of the members of MY Facebook group.

I do know that there are lots of people going to sign this no matter if you or anybody else tries here to put them or all of us down.

We are not "you people", we are Star Trek fans with the same rights you're claiming for you.

I'm not farther commenting this.

Think about it.

If fans didn't agitate 40 years ago, we wouldn't have a TNG or DS9 or Voy or Ent board.


NEVER give up!

NEVER surrender!

To INFINITY... and Simon Schuster, and BEYOND!!!!!

Their lives are empty without their fictional bipolar excuse of a captain apparently.

What do you mean it didn't work for Kirk?

I read those awful "return" novels.

Some of them.

At least 5.

Shatner brought Kirk back.

Now, what if Mulgrew said that she wanted to write Janeway novels?

This is a great idea! I don't have one of the novels to hand with the information but why don't you guys contact Kate via her website and send her the contact details of the editor involved at Simon And Shuster with this idea?

Good going Guy!

Trek Lit is probably a better place for this. Otherwise this is just full of spoilers.

First of all, Yes, you are entitled to your own opinion. Also, I did not care for Janeway's demise (at least how she died) in the novels from what I've heard.

But for years, trekkies had complained about the "red-shirt" sydrome where they would kill off characters we don't know. They did this to Carey on Voyager to stop killing off one-time characters while entire senior staff survives the trip home.

One of these days, they should be free to kill off a Captain if it is well written. I suppose people would be cheering if they killed off Harry Kim or somehow have Neelix suffer a horrible death.

I remember how the novels used to be written with their own canon when I was a kid. I think some of those novels were better back then. I think one should be free to write a novel where Janeway never got on that Borg cube with permission from Paramount without being consistent with other novels.

Plus there are too many issues out there that needs attention than a fictional character in a novel. I'm willing to bet that most trekkies (most of them are casual or a bit more than that) aren't aware of Janeway's death in the novels.

And I don't think this is the same as brining back the TOS cast for the movies.Those actors are real and a whole bunch of people liked seeing them together. Novels is a different matter. There are too many problems and petitions that require more attention than this. This is not worth 10 years. Civil rights, attention to better medical treatments, or safety issues in buildings and things like that...sure. But not a fictional character in a novels that most people don't know about.

Books aren't canon. Admiral Janeway is alive and well from her last appearance in NEM.

Or because of Nero, she's never going to born.
