Homecoming : Star Trek Voyager. Christie Golden. After seven long years in the Delta Quadrant, the crew of the Starship Voyager now confront the strangest world of all: home.
For Admiral Kathryn Janeway and her officers, Voyager's miraculous return to planet Earth brings new honours and new responsibilities. For some there are reunions with long-lost loved ones, while for others such as the Doctor and Seven of Nine, there is the challenge of forging new lives in a Federation that seems to hold little place for them. But even as Janeway and the others go their separate ways, pursuing new horizons and opportunities, a strange cybernetic plague strikes Earth, transforming men, women and children into a new generation of Borg.
Soon the entire planet faces assimilation, and Voyager -- newly returned from the heartland of the Borg -- may be to blame. Chapter Jan 16, Jimyanni rated it liked it Shelves: star-trek. This is not a bad story, aside from two large flaws. The first large flaw is, of course, that it's just the BEGINNING of a story; as anyone who has read a number of my reviews probably knows, I almost always dock a book one star for failing to tell a complete story within its pages.
If you like "contuinued next time, same Bat Time, same Bat Channel" stories, feel free to consider this a four-star review, although I'll admit to being even MORE annoyed with the fact that this book failed to be a co This is not a bad story, aside from two large flaws. If you like "contuinued next time, same Bat Time, same Bat Channel" stories, feel free to consider this a four-star review, although I'll admit to being even MORE annoyed with the fact that this book failed to be a complete story than I usually am, in that the fact that it was "Book One of One" was not nearly clearly enough marked; the cover said nothing about it, nor did the spine.
The rear cover mentions it in very tiny print. I will grant that the current Amazon entry for it clearly labels it such, but I'm not certain that it did when I ordered it. What's more, the conclusion is not "Homecoming, Book 2 of 2". It is "The Farther Shore", which I also didn't realize was not a complete story in its own right when I bought it. The other problem that I have with this book, other than the lack of a conclusion, is that the plotline once again follows a tried and true Star Trek plotline which has been done to death, and which I've long since grown sick of: Starfleet Admirals who are, at best, idiots with a chip on their shoulders, and at worst traitors.
It seems that it's an old failsafe for an author struggling to find sufficient conflict for a Star Trek novel: require the characters to fight their own bureaucracy, as well as whatever outside threat presents itself. Frankly, it's gotten to the point where any such plot automatically loses a star, just as an incomplete story loses a star. Jul 12, Sharon rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Star Trek.

Shelves: science-fiction-fantasy , star-trek-voyager-re-launch. I am reviewing this together with The Father Shore. The two books contain a single story. Many television viewers were dissatisfied with Voyager's final episode 'Endgame'. It was too abrupt. We should have seen families reunited, celebrations and cheesy hoopla. We got none of that. Fortunately Christie Gold gave fans a more satisfying ending to the journey. We see them come home, meet their families and friends and observe as they struggle to adjust to normal life.
They learn about the Dominion War and all its horrors. They find they need to work through the fact that the tightly knit crew will now be going their separate ways and and all must find a new direction for their lives. Janeway is promoted to Admiral, Chakotay visits his people.
Tuvok becomes an instructor at Star Fleet academy, Tom makes peace with his father and he and B'Elanna seem to have their happily ever as they adjust to being new parents. Kim is reunited with his devoted parents and Libby. The Doctor finds himself fending off fans of his holo novel. Seven of Nine retreats to the home of a caring aunt.
Icheb goes to Star Fleet Academy. That is over.
Characters from The Next Generation show up. Counselor Troi is called to help the crew as they struggle to readjust. Captain Picard makes an appearance and Data has a substantial part to play in the story line and of course Reginald Barclay is the hero of the hour for not giving up on them.
He is made an 'honorary' member of the Voyager Crew. It all can't be roses and sunshine. A disturbed man is fixed on the idea of civil rights for holograms and tries to pull the Doctor into his schemes. A mysterious plague shows up and the crew of Voyager is pulled in for questioning. It looks as though the Borg is somehow active again so Seven of Nine and Icheb are detained.
B'Elanna receives signs that her mother is still alive and on goes on a Klingon Challenge to find her leaving her new child and Tom alone but she goes with his blessings. Libby is harboring a secret.
The crew must reunite. The point of view shifts from character to character as the different plot lines weave together and they come together to a satisfying conclusion. It is a good ending to the long journey of Voyager and her crew and the beginning of their new lives in the Alpha Quadrant. The adventures of the Voyager characters are continued in the Voyager Relaunch novels. Sep 11, Felicia Latoya Brown rated it it was amazing Shelves: personal-library.

Sorry, but that storyline was forced, and I was glad that Golden ended that pairing as quickly as it was formed and at least gave a better understanding about the break-up than the writers of the show did in bringing them together right after Chakotay had once again showed how much he still loved Janeway in the Quarra episode. Anyway, other than that It was nice to h She gets bonus points for ending the very rushed relationship between Chakotay and Seven of Nine.
It was nice to have a glimpse of what their return would have been like and in a canonized work not just fanfiction. Oct 29, Tpiac rated it it was ok.
I love Captain Janeyway and her crew but man alive! Welcome to the world of inconsistencies that is Trek. Still, it had it's moments. View 1 comment. Jun 19, David rated it it was amazing Shelves: star-trek. This is the big deal! This two-parter continues the story where the TV show leaves off! Gawds but I loves me my Voyager!! Forgotten how much I loved that show. It's totally restored my equilibrium that's been out of wack since Trump became President. I have faith in humanity's future again. I watched every episode when they first aired but I've never rewatched Voyager.
Until now. I almost think it's my favorite Star Trek show. It's neck and neck with Picard's Next Generation. This is a This is the big deal! This is a terrific novel. It's a perfect Voyager's home story. And it doesn't go the way you think it might.
Nothings easy for Janeway's crew. Not even back on the Alpha Quadrant and Earth. LOVED this book! View 2 comments. Aug 20, Spencer Bounds rated it it was amazing.

Dec 25, Erica rated it really liked it Shelves: star-trek-voyager. Okay, so I really, really like this book. Christie Golden does an amazing job with taking Voyager past the last episode and continuing the story beyond that. To begin with Golden starts the book off in what I would say was a very emotional and strong way. She captures the moment of Voyager coming home after all these years so beautifully. I felt that all of the major characters got their place and time in how they felt and how they were affected by finally reaching what had been Voyagers destinat Okay, so I really, really like this book.
