Voyager: Full Circle

For Trekkers who wanted more from the legendary crew of USS Voyager, these two books are the perfect read: Full Circle and Unworthy.

The continuing encounters of Captain Kathryn Janeway, Chakotay and Seven of Nine will spurn interests which was once since the tv series which saw its last season finale in 2001. The timeline :places the characters about two years after Voyager's return from the Delta Quadrant. The story unfolds when the vaunted vessel , now equipped with the new slipstream drive and a few augmentations is assigned to return to the Delta Quadrant supposedly for a recon mission to ascertain the balance of power after the massive defeat of the Borg but as the story unravels, you'd see that the storytelling sets out whole new possibilities in the Voyager franchise. And you'd think you saw the end of it when the future Admiral Janeway helps her younger self and the valiant crew get back home.

Kirsten Beyer is a brilliant writer.

Her writing grips the reader with her understanding of the characters and she interpolates the canon sources with her stories with remarkable outcome. The books left sanguine expectations. It was hard to put them down once I started.

Beyer is working on an unannounced Voyager novel scheduled for release in 2011. I am looking so very forward.
