Book Description

6 Dec 2004 Star Trek: Voyager
Captain Chakotay, one-time Maquis resistance fighter, is ready to prove himself as the new commanding officer of the Starship Voyager -- but sceptics back at Starfleet Command are watching him closely for any sign that he will revert to his renegade Maquis ways. His first mission as captain, to transport a group of displaced colonists back to their home planet of Loran II, seems easy enough: make sure the planet is safe for colonisation, unload the settlers, and head back to Earth. He even has an extra reason to enjoy the trip -- his sister Sekaya has joined the mission as a spiritual advisor to the gentle and peace-loving colonists. But on Loran II hey discover a mysterious storm, an ominously deserted settlement and a hidden threat from Chakotay's past that could destroy them all. Will his career as captain be over before it has even begun?

4.0 out of 5 stars A little sticky but quite enjoyable 17 Jan 2005
By Perfectbub VINE VOICE
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book continues the Voyager post-return series. And I must say that I did not think it half bad. The choice of Harry Kim as Security Chief was a tad odd but the new characters I liked. the tennis scene with the new first officer was inspired.
The ending will knock your socks off and the reintroduction of old enemies is clever.
All in all a Star Trek Book that will delight Voyager fans and make them crave the second book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Introduction to a new era 24 Jan 2005
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have to agree with you feefers_. I loved this book. I hadn't really read any Star Trek books until I was recommended this one by my girlfriend but thank god I did, I loved this book and am currently reading the second one.
I was also a little curious about Kim being Security Chief, and I kinda miss the old voyager crew, particularly the Doctor but as a follow on this is a great place to start. It keeps enough of the old but introduces enough of the new!

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay, not great 28 Oct 2012
By skb17
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In some ways the start of this book feels more exciting than the last two. Whereas the last were integration back into the Alpha Quadrant - this should be the crew spreading their wings and getting on with some exciting new, missions... boldly going, you could say.

However the book soon starts showing flaws.

Golden needs to find a home for all the characters, and not all make sense. Harry Kim as a security officer is odd - it'd be like a Scientist getting a promotion to a Police Chief. Many characters are sidelined such as Tom. But she also has new characters. Kaz, who is rather bland and probably suffers from lack of a TV character to form a basis, and a counsellor who is just annoying in a sense that I can't imagine some TV character having flapping ears etc.

I *love* the story with Janeway, of Federation worlds wanting to sucede. This continues the war-ravaged quadrant feel of the two books, and is a very real look at how the Federation works. While not given much 'screen time', it's great and it's something I would like to have seen more.

My main issue is characters the story relies on - like Chakotay's sister - are not compelling, and the story even less so. Golden revisits one of the worst Voyager episodes - Tattoo. Of all the episodes to revisit, that one? Really? I can see the author wants to flesh out Chakotay, but this is the wrong episode to do it with.

Probably a 2.5* book, but I''ll give it 3 as it's an easy read with some good elements. And it does have a nice twist towards the end which led me into the next part.

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful ! 21 Jan 2011
By Relayer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Dreadful plot, unconvincing characterisation - a pointless continuation made all the more disappointing as I had been looking forward to it, having decided to catch up with all the post TV Trek continuations.

Skip this dross and go straight to Kirsten Beyers continuations. She dismisses this junk, remaining plot threads and the new characters in a few paragraphs and she then gets on with a proper continuation.

Kirsten Beyers novels are great - probably better than the series itself. Stick to them...
