    Well the excerpt is pretty good. I am reminded of an old writing rule, Chekhov’s Gun.

    Let's hope Chekhov's gun in this case is Janeway and not Chak's sister.

    I think that both characters would fall under the Chekhov's Gun trope, we should be seeing them both. This is the set up, the hook to get the reader started.

    If they make her into some kind of Idris of the ship I will choke.

    Well DUH! :rolleyes:

    But it starts with an apparition and then becomes a fully realized being... IF Kirsten wants a surrogate child!!! :lol:

    I'm surprised Chakotay called Eden's dream a "Captain's dream". :confused:

    Sounds like a typical ENSIGN'S NIGHTMARE... the world is going to hell in a handbasket and JANEWAY is there to see it all happen. :eek:

    Re: Janeway returning to Trek Lit?

    Btw how are we going to handle spoilers in this thread? I, and I suspect more than a few others would like to know ahead of time whether Janeway is back for good. Do we need all the discussions spoiler tagged? Or should we ask for the thread title to be changed to say SPOILERS to warn off people who don't want to know?

    I await the thread consensus :)

    I'm avoiding this thread and the Trek Lit Voyager ones until I've gotten and finished the book. And if someone posts a "JANEWAY IS BAAAAACK!!!" or "IT WAS A LIIIIIE!!!!!!1!!" thread spoiling it, they won't wake up the next morning.

    Re: Janeway returning to Trek Lit?

    Some candyass moron ensign is going to start a thread like...

    "Rejoice, Kathryn Janeway has returned!!!"

    or

    "Ding dong, the bitch is still dead!"

    I fucking loath Ensigns.

    Yeah.. I think you may have to avoid the whole board KingDaniel until you finish the book. Except the ST:XII countdown thread. You do have obligations :lol:

    "The saga of USS Voyager will continue."

    Actually, I don't pick it up till Saturday, so that's a guess. Am doing a course on my usual pick-up night (Thursday). :lol:
