I thought this book was fantastic. For those who haven't seen the TV episode, Voyager comes across another Federation ship, the Equinox, under attack, and comes to their rescue, only to find that they are the agressors in this conflict. We see a rather stark side to Janeway, who wages a rather personal war against her opposite number, and we get an idea of how both crews feel about at last meeting other Federation-people after so long in the Delta Quadrant. It's gritty and quite dark at times, but the characters are true to what you see on TV, and it's full of drama. I liked 'hearing' the thoughts of the crew having seen their actions. There is also the conflict as to whether or not to use highly suspect methods to get home quickly, something which the Equinox crew want to keep hidden from Janeway and her people. Highly recommendable.
