This story was well-enough written, if not truly compelling. The characterizations seemed a bit off, in that the dark matter poisoning that the crew was experiencing was supposed to be having serious deleterious effects on their personalities, but that only seemed to be enforced sporadically. Yes, every once in a while we would see clear indications of the effects, but at least as frequently there was no sign of difficulties. Janeway has a headache that makes her very irritable, and sometimes sh ...more
Cloak and Dagger is the first book in the Dark Matters Trilogy. This is set late in the sixth season around the time of the episode "Muse'.

This trilogy ties in with the episode 'Eye of the Needle'. The Romulan character Telek R'Mor makes a return.

This is a set up book that shifts locations from Voyager to the Romulan Capital. There is a conspiracy afoot to capture Voyager via a manufactured wormhole. Voyager is being attacked by 'dark matter' that is affecting the crew. It makes some sick, some

This book felt mostly like set-up, without a whole lot of an internal plot. Since this is book one of a three part series, this is probably not much of a surprise.

The premise: Early on, Voyager encountered a small wormhole and made contact with a Romulan scientist on the far side. Unfortunately, they discovered that the wormhole not only connected the Delta Quadrant with the Alpha Quadrant, but it jumped through time as well. The Romulan, named Telek, lived 20 years in Voyager's past. In this bo

Book one in a trilogy. Loved spending time with the Voyager crew again and enjoyed learning some stuff about dark matter. The return of Telek R'Mor was a nice touch, because that was one of the earliest episodes. The effects of the dark matter on the entire crew were also interesting to read about for someone with some medical knowledge -- people react to the same stimuli in different ways. I am interested to see how the story plays out.
The Romulan that Voyager had previously met turns up again. The Romulans intend to capture Voyager and use their advances in technology to change the timeline. Only problem is the method uses dark matter. This is definitely a setting the scene type book, the plot and characters are decent too. A good read.

I really enjoyed this book. In many ways it was just my kind of story since I found the whole idea with the dark matter very interesting. Not to mention that Christie Golden brought back Telek R'Mor from one of my favorite episodes, "Eye of the Needle", from season one of Voyager. And with him, of course, more Romulans and the prospect of trying to protect the timeline. For me this trilogy feels very promising and I'm looking forward to see where Golden takes it.

Book 1 of a trilogy. Golden has a great story line going here and has the potential to blow past her Star Trek yawner "The Last Roundup" that I read a few years back. My only complaint is that I dislike stories where the main character(s) are rescued from whatever the life-threatening situation is when an all-powerful being shows up, and this one partially falls into that category.

I haven't read any Star Trek novels by other authors, but I really like the way Christie Golden writes. It's probably also to my advantage that I haven't watched all the episodes from the Voyager TV series, as I'm assuming that these novels follow along in the same story arc. Whatever the case, I found this book entertaining and well-paced.

If you like Voyager, this is a great author for the books. She sticks very close to what happened during the seven seasons of the show.

A bit amateurishly written opening to a trilogy that showed its true teeth in the last subsequent installments.

Another save the universe with help from an ominpotent being. Need to read the trio to get the whole story.

This whole series was fairly "meh" nonsensical fantasy-quest. The Romulan scenes were interesting though.
