Re: Star Trek: Voyager: Children Of The Storm Review Thread

loved it, and i'm glad that the first officer of the demeter isnt going to be jettisoned from the series. hopefully we can see his progression, even if several books down the road.

also, i happened to hear the g&t podcast of the shore leave panel with kirsten. it was spot on and dealt with the issues in an even tempered manner. personally, i was glad that sisco was brought back, but it wouldnt have been so bad if he had never returned.

there wasnt a single downside to the book, and now i care about the other ships in the fleet to a greater extent and want to know what happens in their futures...both during the mission and post delta quad mission.


it would be nice to get a picture of the bridge crew of voyager with the new crew members... a la what was done with the new frontier books 5 and 6.

solid kirsten, as weyoun would say 'you keep writing, and i'll keep reading.'

It took me awhile to read it because of my schedule, but I loved it. I love the whole task force of ships in a new region of space concept. It was very well done.

I agree. Kirsten is doing a fantastic job introducing her new characters as the story needs them instead of in one fell swoop. At the same time, the tv characters still get their "air time" as well. They're being moved along in a logical progression from the series' finale.

I can't help but wish the Titan characters had been introduced and/or developed the same way. (I enjoy the Titan series, don't get me wrong, but I still can't keep everyone straight on that ship without a cheat sheet.)

Re: Star Trek: Voyager: Children Of The Storm Review Thread

I have a question regarding the Progenitors. Cambridge and that other crewmember basically said that the Progenitors were conversing from their posteriors about life in our galaxy all being seeded by them, and supposedly others thought so too.

Does that have anything to do with Eden's origins and will it being be followed up in the series?

Re: Star Trek: Voyager: Children Of The Storm Review Thread

Wow! Even better than Unworthy Kirsten. Thanks so much for continuing this storyline. You are the perfect author for it. I hope you get to continue for many more books. Can we get a confirmation that a 4th is on it's way? Any teasers about it?

Loved Miral's roll in the story and the inclusion of Neelix. I think it will be intersting to see the Cambridge/Seven storyline continue. And I really hope we eventually return to some old Voyager storylines like the Kazon, Hirogen, Borg Cooperative, Vaaduar, Unimatrix Zero, and Kes.

Hey folks,

Sorry it's taken me so long to get back to this but I've been...you know...working on the new story.

Anyway, to those who recently posted their thoughts...many thanks. It's always great to hear people's reactions.

Benny, re: the Progenitors, etc...this was a trail Cambridge was following that ultimately led nowhere for him. But it's not the end of the story as far as Eden goes. Her mysterious past is a large part of ongoing development.

I'll feel more comfortable absolutely confirming the new novel in the next few weeks when it's a done deal. I believe it will be, but when I can, I'll post again with more info.

Best,
Kirsten Beyer

Re: Star Trek: Voyager: Children Of The Storm Review Thread

I enjoyed it, but I have to admit I liked Full Circle and Unworthy a bit more. I am on the fence still on how I feel about the counselor...

I like his counseling methods more than Troi's. I would also have a difficult time maintaining a train of thought when she wore that green dress.

I also think the counselor did a superb job getting Chakotay out of his funk and self pity. I like him so much that I need to go to Beta so I can remember his name.


Anyone heard if Mark Rademaker is still working on a Voyager refit for 2013?

i wouldn't have any difficulty maintaining a train of thought while Troi was in those jumpsuits or the dress. it'd just be an express train straight into the sewers...

It's Hugh Cambridge, isn't it?
