Re: Star Trek Voyager: The Eternal Tide by Kirsten Beyer

^I'm getting forgetful. When I saw that name, I thought, "Gee, that sounds familiar -- where did that come from?" Took me a few moments to remember...

But I wouldn't call that destiny. The whole point of Places of Exile was that one small change caused everything to turn out in massively different ways.

Awww, c'mon. You peeked in a thread about a highly-controversial potential return and you expected no spoilers whatsoever?

That's exactly what some fans wanted.

Re: Star Trek Voyager: The Eternal Tide by Kirsten Beyer

The afterlife in Trek is not marked by golden gates but by a revolving door. Much like the comics, if you wait long enough anyone can be brought back from the other side. Death has become an inconvenience. We may not like it when a favorite character dies but as long as you've got god-like entities like Q around death simply means you're not around for a few days or weeks or months. We may cry at the death and cheer the resurrection but I, for one, am not outraged or angry when a character dies. If a future story needs them, they'll be back in some way. As a fan that can be seen as a plus. In terms of drama with consequences, it's a minus. The death of a character is certainly nothing to get all bent out of shape over.

How about characters have babies, but then the babies explode? Is that acceptable?

The cover plus "one of Starfleet’s own – a respected and acclaimed officer – returns, with the fate of the galaxy hanging in the balance", the source being startrek.com?

Plus the fact that the market for trek lit is made mostly of star trek fans, among whom Janeway is widely known (unlike trek lit only characters)?

The chances of Janeway returning are VERY high at this point.

It will be interesting to see how this subforum will react - considering the endless discussions on Janeway's death that took place here.
Nobody likes to be proven wrong - and, apparently, the 'don't bring back Janeway' crowd WILL BE proven wrong.
In order to keep you guessing wrong, they've put Janeway on the cover but it is Kahn that comes back.

Or they could do the same that soap operas do. Send them upstairs to be never to be seen again or age them about 20 years.

*I do not want janeway and Chakotay to have children* I have ran into way too many of the Voyager full of children fics.
