So someone spoil me. I never read any of the Voyager novels save Homecoming. Well and Destiny, but Voyager only played a small role there. Did Kes ever die of old age?

With the current scenario in the Voyager books, I think that I would have appreciated the books a lot more if there had been a new ship with new characters who were exploring the Delta Quadrant.
There are new ships and new characters. Some of the books give them more play than others, but Voyager isn't the only ship this time around, for better or for worse.

There are too many ships and crews all smushed together in a lot of the novels.

I like a lot of the new characters, Dr. Kaz in particular. (Is that considered a spoiler?)

Re: Voyager Books

^^Yeah but he is in like...a bunch of the previous novels! And in Full Circle.



I think I only remember him because 1) I read the novels really recently and 2) because I pictured him being an awesome Trill like Dax...a really smart, kind, and good-looking person.

Re: Voyager Books

Ah now I remember. He was cute.

I don't have any standout characters from the books that were original (non show) ones. The Andorian in the DS9 books irritated me.

I'm happy to see your avatar again Captain Kathryn, I always love that pic!

Re: Voyager Books

Kirsten Beyer is seriously the PERFECT person to continue Voyager's narrative beyond the series itself, as is quickly made evident if you look at her background. She spent a good chunk of her life being a 'pitch artist' and familiarizing herself with Voyager and its characters to such a degree that I daresay she knew and knows the show and characters as well as if not better than some of the people who actually worked on the show and with its characters on a weekly basis.

I agree, in Children of the Storm got almost dizzy from trying to remember who was who on the other ships (ha the character list was at the end of the book), and ended up skipping much of what one (boring IMO) character did, lol (thankfully less of him in The Eternal Tide). Some new characters on Voyager is one thing; more new ships and more new characters (tho Capt. Farkas is ok) is another. Would've liked to see more minor Voyager TV characters showing up in the books (besides Icheb and Vorik); surely a few would have been in the Voyager crew again after they got back to the AQ.

(Trivia: I have a FB acquaintance named Bea Farkas, who is Hungarian; and she says Farkas is the Hungarian word for "Fox." She was pretty pleased as a Trek fan to hear there was a Captain Farkas/Fox.)

When it comes to Voyager and Kes in those books:

I agree that she is a terrific writer and I did actually appreciate "The Eternal Tide".

My only problem, now when Janeway is back is that I miss the good, old crew from the early books. I can read books like "Homecoming", "Evolution" and "The Eternal Tide" and find them good and enjoyable. Then I re-read "The Black Shore", "Marooned" or "her Klingon Soul" and think: "Yes, this is what I really want!"

I guess that's one reason I've begin to think about Voyager as a lost cause and have started to look forward to something new. A new ship with some likeable characters.

I wouldn't mind to see Kirsten Beyer as the author for a new series. My only objection is that I don't want it to take place in the Abramsverse.
