Kurzbeschreibung

29. September 2009 Star Trek Voyager (Paperback Unnumbered)
Freed with a thought, the greatest menace to humanity, the Borg, are gone, absorbed into the Caeliar gestalt. But are they? Can this deadly menace that has hovered over humanity for decades truly be gone? Might some shadow of the Caeliar remain? The Federation decides that they have to know, and Starfleet is ordered to find out.

The Starship Voyager leads a fleet into a region of space that has lived in fear of instant annihilation for generations: the Delta quadrant, home of the Borg. Afsarah Eden -- the new captain of Voyager -- is charged with getting answers, to reach out to possible allies and resolve old enmities in the Delta quadrant.

The perfection that was given to the Borg was withheld from Seven of Nine. Left behind, she is living a twilight existence -- neither Borg nor human -- and slowly going mad. The whispers of the Collective, comforting murmurs she has always known, are replaced with a voice deep within her that keeps insisting she is Annika Hansen. Chakotay, the former captain of Voyager, offers to help Seven rendezvous with the ships that Starfleet Command has sent into the Delta quadrant, the probable destination of the mysterious Caeliar.

These are not the friendly stars of the Federation; the unknown and the unexpected are the everyday.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Der Full-Circle-Höhenflug wird nicht fortgesetzt... 18. Oktober 2009
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Vorbemerkung

Unworthy ist die Auflösung des Cliffhangers, den es am Ende von Full Circle gab.

Inhalt

Die Voyager und die ihr zugeteilte Flotte stehen kurz davor, per experimentellem Slipstreamflug in den Delta-Quadranten zurückzukehren. Kleinere Interferenzen und Unwägbarkeiten verzögern den Aufbruch. Dies nutzen Chakotay und Seven, die letzte Gelegenheit zu ergreifen und doch noch an Bord zu kommen.

Nach dem Tod ihrer schwerkranken Tante Irene - letztes Hanson-Familienmitglied - hat Seven einen Schock erlitten. Fast wahnsinnig ist sie im Laufe der zurückliegenden Tage und Wochen geworden von der Stimme, die sie allenthalben hört, seit die Caeliar das Borg-Kollektiv absorbiert haben (siehe Destiny). Mithilfe von Chakotays Schwester gelingt es, Seven soweit zu stabilisieren, dass sie reisefähig ist. Chakotay weiß, dass sie jetzt keine Zeit verlieren dürfen: Sie müssen die Caeliar oder ihre Hinterlassenschaften auf der anderen Seite der Galaxis irgendwie finden und offen legen, was mit Seven geschieht.

Admiral Batiste und Captain Eden, die gemeinsam den Befehl über die Flotte und die Voyager führen, kommt es nicht ungelegen, als die Exborg um eine Mitfahrgelegenheit bittet, war es doch in ihrem ursprünglichen Interesse, sie als Expertin einzustellen. Nur Chakotays Wiederauftauchen sorgt für Verstimmungen bei den neuen Befehlshabern. Als er vehement insistiert, kein Interesse an einer Kommandoposition zu haben, sondern einzig und allein Sevens Wohl zuliebe hier sei, gibt man sich zufrieden.

B'Elanna ist indes mit einem modifizierten Shuttle im Zuge eines ziemlich holperigen Slipstreamtransfers in den Delta-Quadranten gelangt.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Exzellente Fortsetzung der Caeliar-Story 11. Januar 2010
Format:Taschenbuch
Sehr schön - das ist, wie (fast) alle mit der Destiny-Trilogie zusammenhängenden Romane ein hervorragendes Buch. Star Trek geht also weiter, sowohl im neu aufgeteilten Alpha- als auch im borglosen Deltaquadranten. Und das ganz ohne, wie im neuesten Film, sinnlos ein neues Universum einzuführen.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Back in the Delta-Quadrant - in Force 4. Oktober 2009
Von K. Beck-Ewerhardy TOP 1000 REZENSENT
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
The Voyager is back in the Delta-Quadrant and she is one of nine ships equipped with slipstream-drive to look whether the Borg or the Caeliar are still something to be concerned about She is under a new command even though a lot of the crew is the same as before and seven and Chakotay are aboard on a advisory basis.

B'Elanan Paris and her daughter plan to rendezvous with Voyager to go off with Tom to other parts to save their daughter from religious fanatics, but before the rendezvous can be effected, B'Elann's shuttle is attacked by a kind of "Borg-cube light". When Voyager steps into the fray, a disabling shot finishes the aggressor.

Looking for the origin of this attacker a small flotilla of three ships finds a planetary system in which six races live in an interesting symbiosis and wait to become worthy of being assimilated by the Borgd - a quite disturbing Concept for the crews.

Again a psychologically very complex novel with a lot of interesting ideas and quite exciting plot-twists. One star was reducted, because it starts a bit slowly and it isn't really finished, so one will have to wait for the next installment to see how the open plot-lines are resolved.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Unworthy is a worthy read. 12. Oktober 2009
Von Adrian - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This book is a better treatment of Voyager. The cover is similar to the flyby in the series introduction, and they are back in the delta quadrant, where the ship and crew can differentiate themselves from the Next Generation crowd. All the usual suspects are there and everyone's favourite leisure hologram even makes an appearance (I dont mean The Doctor either)

There are a few twists and turns in the second half of the book so I'll keep away from too much of the story, except to say that Voyager leads a fleet of 9 ships back into the delta quadrant to ascertain if the Borg are really gone.

Overall it's a well written book with an interesting plotline which leads itself open to future books.

The only qualm I have is the death of Kathyrn Janeway. As a previous reviewer said, it's like killing off James T Kirk, Jean Luc Picard (still think it's a silly name for the guy), or Benjamin Sisko. She was the bedrock of the crew.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Kept me up too late as I read it! 24. Oktober 2009
Von Nina M. Osier - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Starfleet's mission to the Delta Quadrant, led by a refitted Voyager, needs to arrive on time and in exactly the right place for it to do B'Elanna Torres any good. It's been two years since B'Elanna staged her own death, and that of her little daughter Miral, to protect the child from a Klingon sect bent on murder. Their reason? They think Miral has been born in fulfillment of a prophecy that they desperately want to prevent from coming true. With Tom Paris serving as Voyager's first officer, B'Elanna takes their child ahead to the Delta Quadrant and waits there for Starfleet's arrival. The journey no longer requires either a lifetime of conventional warp travel or use of a Borg corridor; thanks to slipstream technology that finally seems ready for safe use, it's now within normal mission time limits. But the Delta Quadrant is still a long way from the Federation, and it's nowhere for a shuttle with one woman (however brilliant a warrior) and her small child aboard to encounter - of all things - a cube. Aren't the Borg supposed to be gone? Absorbed into the gestalt of the Caeliar, who created them in the first place?

That's how author Beyer "shoots the sheriff on page one" (to cite an old but useful piece of writing advice). Beyer has the familiar Voyager characters nailed, and her original characters fit into the Trek universe as if they had been there all along. For those things I give this book high praise. I do have a couple of quibbles, though, just as I did with the story's first volume, Full Circle. A certain degree of "spoilage" follows. So don't read the rest of this review unless you have either finished reading the book for yourself, or don't care about being spoiled.

First, this time the absence of Janeway really started to bother me. I'd assumed, perhaps foolishly, that one of the plot elements in Unworthy would be bringing her back from the "dead" - I'm using quotes because this is science fiction, and therefore the word need not have its usual finality. Maybe that's going to happen later, in some future book; and I do hope so, because for me it's unacceptable to have any Trek incarnation continue without its captain. TOS needs Kirk, TNG needs Picard, DS9 needs Sisko; and Voyager needs Janeway. If your mileage varies on this point, that's fine; but this is how I feel, and it definitely affected my enjoyment of an otherwise fine novel. Second, one of the plot twists happened off camera and therefore failed to work for me as well as it should have. The "reveal" scene for that plot twist felt forced, when it should have flowed naturally.

Otherwise a great read! The sort that kept me up too late, in fact. I'm glad Beyer is writing the Voyager books now. Well worth the purchase.

2.0 von 5 Sternen It's alright... but not the same without Janeway 29. Dezember 2011
Von Thomas W. Christopher - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I started reading the books as a way to kill time on long trips. I've loved Trek and over the course of time, Voyager became my sentimental favorite. The books were a way to keep that fond feeling alive.

So you can imagine my surprise when in the middle of the last book, they kill off Janeway. I kept reading thinking that there would be some plot twist that would bring her back at the most opportune time (i.e., Q, the Borg assimillation, etc.). But at the end of this book she was gone and not coming back, and the air came out of my balloon.

The book is fine, and well-written, and all that, but if you truly liked Voyager, you had to like Janeway, if not love Janeway. So what could possibly be the thought process behind killing the show's main beloved character, if your goal is to sell books to the people who watched that show? It doesn't make any sense. I know there's another book in this trilogy, but to be honest, I don't know whether I'll read it.

As they say over and over throughout this book, the Voyager crew was a family. Okay, so in your infinite wisdom you decided to kill off mom, the glue that held it all together. So, now it really isn't the Voyager that we watched for seven years, and as a result, I'm just not that interested.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Another Fine Addition to Trek Literature 6. Oktober 2009
Von Josh Hagy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Unworthy is a very worthy successor to Full Circle and Beyer has proved herself to be one of the masters of the Voyager relaunch.

Having never actually watched a great deal of Voyager, I haven't quite been as upset by Janeway's death as other Voyager fans. However, I think the relaunch is continuing along fine without her. Beyer did a great job of fleshing out characters that were once given a much more minor role and gives them a great deal of depth and emotional baggage. It's a standard I hope to see continued in the future Voyager novels. The premise of sending Voyager back to the Delta Quadrant was an amazing hook and it's good to see these Starfleet officers facing and dealing with the challenges the mission entails. We don't often see a fleet of Federation starships working in tandem, but we do here and it's interesting.

I won't spoil the ending, but I will say that it was a happy one. Many issues are resolved, particularly among the crew, that are handled almost too easily but in an entirely plausible way. And Counseler Hugh Cambridge is quickly becoming a favorite character of mine. While I'm not sure I like the use of all the holograms about the Galen and what that may mean to the future of Starfleet, I'm open to the experience when it's handled so well by an excellent author such as Beyer.

It's a can't miss novel in the Voyager saga and one I'm happy I picked up. It not only leaves me eager for more but also looking for Voyager DVDs so that I can enjoy the television series.

Just a quick note to say that this is a very entertaining book. I just finished Unworthy and must say it is well written and the characters are very interesting. I am looking forward to the next book in this series.
