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

Britt,
It is ridiculous how much I love my Kindle, for that very reason. A couple of years back I started wondering why I couldn't see the text on my computer anymore when I was writing. My eye doctor laughed at me. "Because you're getting older, you idiot." But changing those font sizes has dramatically increased my reading pleasure time and again.

Enterpriserules,
You are most welcome and I have really appreciated all of the nice things you've had to say about the book.

BillJ,
It bears repeating...you will be missed. But you are also terribly kind to trouble yourself to explain further. All I can say right now is that I truly hope to prove you wrong in your beliefs of what is to come. It is certainly not my intention to return the characters or the series to what we already saw for seven years on TV. That doesn't interest me either. As to whether or not I will succeed...that remains to be seen. By others, obviously.

Scout,
I'm so sorry so many of the choices in the book didn't work for you. I really am. It might comfort you to know that many of the things you suggested were considered by me as I was working through the project. But I made the choices I did and there's no reason you have to like them.

Craig,
That's one damn cute baby in your avatar. Those early smiles are just the best, aren't they? Those toothless little wonders...I'm sorry, what were we talking about? Oh, right, no, I don't have a blog, I don't tweet, I'm not on facebook...really, between writing and stopping in here as often as I can, which isn't all that often these days, I've got more than I can say grace over. The many places one can interact with others on the internet and committing to them compeletely overwhelms me at the moment. I know my limits right now and for better or worse, this is it.

So if you have a question you don't feel comfortable asking here for all to see, just send me PM here and I'll respond as soon as I can.

Best,
Kirsten

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

Hey, am a big J/Cer and don't anticipate an appearance (maybe some talk, if that) of offspring for "my" couple in the hopefully next Voyager novel. IMHO they will have enough on their plates trying to manage the fleet in the DQ (if remain there, which w/be a good thing bookwise), and juggle a relationship where Janeway is the boss again (but of course Chakotay is the true head of his ship). Anyway (Spoiler) since is already a prominent Voyager couple expecting, probably enough babies for that one book, lol.

It's always surprising how few babies there were on television Voyager: those people were facing 70 years of journey time ...

Kirsten:

I loved all the metaphors for the fan debates about dark plots, Janeway, etc. It felt like you were having a gentle go at the fans, and I thought it was hilarious.

Second, when I read your stuff I get a sense of quality. I like to think it's because you have a Bachelor of Fine Arts and know how to use it.

Only mildly surprised at how Janeway was resurrected. I think it was unnecessary to the limit if what I have read.
So what's the "necessary" way to bring someone back from the dead?
I'm going to go with not to.
Technically, the entire existence of the ST franchise isn't "necessary," so you'll forgive me for not having an objective gauge of what's "necessary" in unnecessary fictional universes.
