This week, when Voyager meets a peaceful people whose sun seems to be prematurely dying, Chakotay gets a bad case of the Prime Directive blues. But when a violent empire turns out to be behind the star’s rapid aging plus a few other atrocities, Janeway takes the kid gloves off. Can Ensign Kim figure out the identity of the Masked Singer? Can Tom Paris pass sensitivity training? And is there a way home inside the Sun-Eater? All this and more in The Murdered Sun, the book that’s a riddle inside a mystery inside an enigma inside a gravity well.
This week, when Captain Janeway worries that her chief of security has gone MIA, the search lands her ship clear on the other side of the galaxy. But as she struggles to find an easy way home, it becomes distressingly apparent that not even a two-parter may be enough to fix everything. Who do early writers perceive as Voyager‘s main character? Is Voyager’s entire stay in the Delta Quadrant Starfleet’s fault? And can I learn to stop worrying and love the Neelix? All this and more in Caretaker, the book that takes time to honor its fallen.
