    Gosh, I am so far behind in my Trek reading -- but I just finished this novel. I will keep this short but put simply WOW.

    I will admit that VOY is not my favorite series by any means despite its merits. Kirsten, you have made it my favorite series currently in Treklit. It is by far the most fully realized and heartfelt series of books going right now.

    I love the fleet and all its many captains and personalities. There is so much fertile ground to explore here! I can't wait to see where it goes and I'm rushing out to get The Eternal Tide as soon as I can make the time for it.

    Thank you, Kirsten. Please continue your wonderful work.:bolian:

    Don't get too attached to the fleet.

    Really, really good book. I gave it an above average only because I try to make sure I don't suffer from grade creep and save outstandings for Destiny type quality but this is pretty damn close.

    I liked the fact that we don't just focus on the Voyager crew because, hey, we've got a fleet. Reminded me of the Titan book Sword of Damocles which focused on non TV crew members. The aliens were interesting and the ended didn't seem like it was pulled out of a hat. I really liked the Demeter crew story. This is the best of the Beyer re-launch books so far.

    And you couldn't imagine how uninterested I am in posts in a book review thread from people telling us why they aren't reading the books. Didn't care the last 2 books, don't care now.

    The comments about Beltran only being in it for the money, blah, blah, blah. At least he spoke out about how vapid his character was. There's not enough of that. Want to guess how long I or most of us here would stay at our jobs if we didn't need the money? And there was a LOT more money involved for any of the Voyager actors then what we're making. Of course they are going to stick around. I'm sure the Denise Crosby experience is on any Star Trek actors mind when they are thinking about leaving the show.
