About the Author
New York Times bestselling and award-winning author Christie Golden has written over thirty novels and several short stories in the fields of science fiction, fantasy, and horror. Golden launched the TSR Ravenloft line in 1991 with her first novel, the highly successful Vampire of the Mists, which introduced elven vampire Jander Sunstar. To the best of her knowledge, she is the creator of the elven vampire archetype in fantasy fiction. She is the author of several original fantasy novels, including On Fire’s Wings, In Stone’s Clasp, and Under Sea’s Shadow (currently available only as an e-book) the first three in her multi-book fantasy series “The Final Dance” from LUNA Books. In Stone’s Clasp won the Colorado Author’s League Award for Best Genre Novel of 2005, the second of Golden’s novels to win the award. Among Golden’s other projects are over a dozen Star Trek novels and the well-received StarCraft Dark Templar trilogy, Firstborn, Shadow Hunters, and Twilight. An avid player of Blizzard’s MMORPG World of Warcraft, Golden has written several novels in that world (Arthas, Lord of the Clans, Rise of the Horde) with more in the works, including The Shattering: Prelude to Cataclysm, due out in August 2010. She has also written two Warcraft manga stories for Tokyopop, “I Got What Yule Need” and “A Warrior Made.” Golden is currently hard at work on three books in the major nine-book Star Wars series “Fate of the Jedi,” in collaboration with Aaron Allston and Troy Denning. Her first book in the series, Omen, hit shelves in June of 2009, and her second, Allies, is slated for publication in early summer of 2010.

welcome they deserved or wanted! Another good
Book to find out what happened after, good story all around, hope their are others that will continue on!
I would say that I felt about this book pretty much the same way I did of the episode; I kind of liked it, but I also had some problems with it. The main one being the relationship between Chakotay and Seven of Nine. It made me cringe. I can't even begin to press upon how much I did not want that relationship to happen. So yes, it even got the point that this romantic sub story affected how I felt about the entire episode. Or in this case about the entire book. It's not that I'm against romance in Star Trek, it's just that I'm a J/C:er (meaning I'm a strong advocate of Janeway and Chakotay belonging together). Any hints of romantic feelings between Janeway and Chakotay I cherish, and any between Chakotay and Seven I almost want to delete from my conscious mind. But enough about that. I think you get the picture.
Apart from the relationship I just mentioned I actually do like the story of Endgame. I might argue to some extent that the future we got to see in the beginning of the story was too dark and too depressing, and that the future Janeway wasn't the woman I've come to know and love. But at the same time, I sort of like the drive in her to change all of that and the change we got to see in her during the story. It gives me the message that what you go through can so utterly change your outlook on life, but that it's never to late to see light again. And that is something that gives me hope. I could also argue that the ending felt too abrupt and that I would have wanted more out of it. But at the same time it was beautiful just the way it was. The last words were epic and tied the whole story of Voyager together in such an amazing way, not to mention the whole To the journey-speach by Harry Kim.
He hesitated, formulating his thoughts. "I think it's safe to say that no one on this crew has been more obsessed with getting home than I have. But when I think of everything we've been through together, maybe it's not the destination that matters... maybe it's the journey." He paused again, and made contact with each of them at the table. "I can't think of any place I'd rather be, or any people I'd rather be with."
His words hung in the air for a moment, then drifted into the coffee cup Tom Paris held up in front of him.
"To the journey," Paris declared.
One by one they raised their glasses or cups, and to the last echoed the sentiment of solidarity, admiral or no admiral, Borg or no Borg.
When it comes to the novelization as such we did get a few extra glimpses that wasn't in the episode, but I would have liked more of them. Having read episode based books by Diane Carey before I would say that this wasn't her strongest one. If you were to compare this one with for example Flashback that book is so much more thorough and has so much more "extra material" in it. In comparison this book therefore feels more mundane. But I do want to give a few kudos to Carey for bringing in some subtle proof into the story that Janeway feels more for Chakotay than she's willing to admit. I'm guessing that she might be all for J/C as well.
Ending this review I'd like to say that I'm glad that this is not the end. Thankfully this journey is far from over, so now I'm moving on to the relaunch novels...
After so many perilous and astounding adventures, will Captain Janeway finally bring her wayward starship back to the Alpha Quadrant? And what will become of her diverse yet tightly knit crew? Will Chakotay, B'Elanna Torres, and the other former Maquis freedom fighters face long-delayed justice for their crimes against the Federation? And is there any place in Starfleet for the uniquely independent Borg known as Seven of Nine?
As the ultimate destiny of Voyager is revealed, all that is certain is that nothing will ever be the same! This book is great and brings out alot of things that the episode on tv does not. This is for any voyager fan!
