Q&A with Kirsten Beyer!

Hey everyone.
In the next few weeks I will be interviewing Kirsten Beyer for Priority One, a podcast on Trek Radio! A special interview dedicated to her wonderful books and I want you (the fans and readers) to come up with the questions!

Ever wanted to ask something about the Voyager book series? About what it's like to write for Star Trek?

Really anything you can think of! I will then select a few of the best suggestions and put them to her on air!

Priority One is a fan driven podcast and blogging site. We all work volunteer and make no money from the show.

We're just Trek fans who are happy to be involved any way we can be.

If you want to be involved bang up those questions for the lovely Miss Beyer! Thanks guys

Dec xdx

Re: Q&A with Kirsten Beyer!

What was it like bringing back Janeway and how did you work out the story?

Re: Q&A with Kirsten Beyer!

Miss Beyer, as a fan of your Voyager relaunch books, I must ask:

How challenging did you feel the task of filling the gap from "Spirit Walk" to "Destiny" in the very amazing "Full Circle"?

Re: Q&A with Kirsten Beyer!

If you were to go back in the Voyager storyline instead of forward, what storyline or gap would you choose to elaborate on?

Re: Q&A with Kirsten Beyer!

At what point was it decided to resurrect Admiral Janeway? Did the online petitions have any impact in the decision at all?

Re: Q&A with Kirsten Beyer!

Why did you half destroy Quirinal and have it rebuilt in Children of the Storm only to destroy her and three other starships in The Eternal Tide?

Re: Q&A with Kirsten Beyer!

Is the whole story arc you begun with full circle well defined to the end or do you write it on the spot, improvising with each added book ?

Was the ultimate fate of Captain Eden planned out in advance, or did the story demands of Eternal Tide change things?

Re: Q&A with Kirsten Beyer!

If she ever wrote a Voyager story that was set completely between Caretaker and Endgame, which era would she set the story in? The Kes era or the Seven of Nine era?

Re: Q&A with Kirsten Beyer!

When Before Dishonor was published was it known that Janeway wasn't going to stay dead?

I'd think she HAS to answer no to this one, even if it did have an impact. Otherwise, she loses control of things, it's shown that you can influence her process, and it becomes a series written by committee. Plus, she said in the afterward that she wanted to make it clear that she WASN'T influenced by it....

THIS is one I'm really interested in, and thought was one of the more disappointing parts of TET. Spent so much time developing the fleet, and that ship in particular, and then just wiped it out in the next book. Sure, the transporter trick will show that we saved all the named characters from the ships, for the most part, but still just felt like a waste after the previous book.

If there were too many ships to wield easily, why did she write so many in to start from? If that wasn't the problem, why not only blow up 1 ship or so, to show there's danger there, rather than taking out half the fleet at once.

Would love more digging into that situation.

Do we even know if such a big change is her choice to make?
