Well the Kes storyline in String Theory was a part of The Eternal Tide as well. I think String Theory is an indispensable part of the Relaunch.

Great interview. Looks really likely there will be at least two follow ups to Protectors! And it was great to finally see Kirsten's picture after being a fan for years.

Indeed - to be honest, she looks how I'd have liked Janeway to have been portrayed (I've never taken to Kate Mulgrew).

I think Kirsten will probably be my mental Janeway from here on...

I often cast people as characters in books, but I've never considered "recasting" someone already portrayed on screen. Interesting option.

It's not something I've ever done before, or would normally have even considered - the screen portrayals are pretty definitive !

It's just that with Janeway I've never got over my dislike. It's not only the erratic way she was written - I've overlooked that enough times with other characters. I have an aversion to Kate Mulgrew. The voice, the hairstyle(s), the condescension. Much of it may well be in my own head, but it's there for me !

I like the way Kirsten has written Janeway and that could be part of the reason that when I saw her photo my subconscious blurted out 'She looks like she could've been 'that' Janeway' !

I hope that's not in any way 'weird' to Kirsten, it's just a thought that popped up unbidden...

I've seen the clips - interesting, but no.

If Bujold had approached that role as she had her role in The Trotsky - obscure Canadian "coming of age"/political activism-themed movie starring Jay Baruchel as the title character - she would have been perfect.

Yes!

And yes - great interview. I liked reading a bit more about the process behind Eternal Tide, which definitely seemed a bit different from the other novels thus far, and how she's planning to address the changes moving forward. Could not be more excited about the next (3!) books in this series.

I liked the fact that she said the next book would cover more ground than the previous books, time wise. I love the series, but at three years behind the rest of the 24th century, i don't want to see another DS9 situation crop up. Can't wait for all three books and hopefully more in the future

That's one thing I'm starting to dislike with the books since Marco Palmieri left. Lets do two or three books in this year and now we'll jump ahead 5 or 10 years and do two or three more books and then jump ahead some more.

That's something I hate too. I enjoyed the pace the original DS9 Relaunch was going at.

When it comes down to it, I don't really care either way. As long as the stories continue to be of a high quality. 5 books for a calendar year isn't bad though. So much can be covered in a book. Full Circle could have been half a tv season in itself. Just sayin
