Re: Voyager again, for the first time

I liked Homecoming and The Farthest Shore a lot, and I think they did satisfy in some areas as far as "actual homecoming" goes, though obviously they immediately launch themselves into relaunch mode as well. However all the Christie Golden that followed those two were drek, which seems to be the pattern in her series.

Re: Voyager again, for the first time

Well according to my Kindle I made it through a quarter of the book last night and it is satisfying the homecoming stuff I needed.

On further reflection, the Tuvok Vulcan alzhiemer's needed more build up. Something we'd seen in passing a couple of times during the season to have any real impact, instead it's an obvious plot device to help make Janeway's decision easier. Oh, and they did do Chakotay/7, and even with an episode build up (I assume Natural Law was meant to be another but didn't really do much) it just flopped really.

Re: Voyager again, for the first time

1. They did better with T'Pols drug addiction spread out over several episodes in Enterprise before the final crunch.

2. Seska was retroactively included into several episodes before it was revealed that she was a spy after they were written and locked... Everything that Seska the Bajoran did was previously the responsibility of nameless no ones or Carey, possibly Durst because they were written and finished well before the Seska Unmasked/Seska Exists script was handed in... They caught the ball and ran with it in both directions into the past and the future.

This "level" of commitment to continuity on a producer level was later heretofore unseen again.

Re: Voyager again, for the first time

Just posted a version of this in Trek Lit forum, but since I literally finished Endgame and started Homecoming.

Finished Homecoming and The Farther Shore. The writing style wasn't the best, but overall this felt like a proper finale to the series. I almost wish it was the real finale, except Data probably plays too big a role for the TV (and we wouldn't want a TNG star stealing a finale now, would we......)

Half of the first book does spend a little too much time on “hey we're back and everything's awesome” but at the same time Golden is setting up a lot of dominos that all come to a perfect finish
