I and the majority of Star Trek readers (Or at least those that agree with me) believe that Star Trek is suffering a major lack of HAIR. Just look at Picard! Tho at least Sisko grew some of his hair back....
So, Janeway comes back, but without her hair, a la Mr Bigglesworth?

Alice Krige's version, yes.

She seemed to have a thing for me and my waistcoats, though, so I'm totally biased.

Alice Krige was the best by far.

Re: VOY: The Eternal Tide by Kirsten Beyer Review Thread (Spoilers!)

I have to admit that I've just read the last two pages of the book (which are available online thanks to some certain nice people), however what makes the book OUTSTANDING are two facts:

1. Janeway is back.
2. she's in Chakotay's bed telling that he loves him.

Thanks to Kirsten Beyer!!!!!!

Books that sound like fan-fiction to this degree are almost universally bad.

Nice people = people who violate copyright laws.

Strange interpretation of nice you have there.

Why is ending up in Chak's bed sounding like fan fiction?

Trek needs more beds.

Actually not because there is such a thing as "fair use" and the people that posted the pages didn't charge money for them. I would generally think that Pocket Books is pretty glad those pages were posted because it assured the sell of a number of books. The pages do not show the how or the why of the plot. It is a win for everyone.

There wasn't anything showed in those two pages that couldn't be shown in any blog review as snips of the text.

Nice is opinion, you don't have it, but a lot of people do.
