Evoloution completes the Star Trek: Voyager String Theory trilogy of books. This series sets up the fourth season and tries to explain the tonal shift of Voyager at this point. Evolution completes the Nacene story with a little help from Q, q, and Kes. In fact, seeing what eventually happens to Kes is worth the time it takes to read the book. Moreover, the story elements on Ocampa are also quite good as well. One of my favorite sections involves q (Lower case, not a graduate of Q U) where she, T ...more

A good read, but I don't like the plot device of using Q to give the crew the help they need to get themselves out of their messes. It's too deus-ex-machina for me. After all, when I see Q in the story, my immediate thought is that he could just fix everything himself, if he wanted to, rendering all of the crew's struggles to date insignificant. I mean, Q could just zap the ship back to the Alpha Quadrant, which would have ended the whole series pretty quickly. Introducing Q into this branch of ...more

This book is the conclusion to a three-book series, so don't start reading it if you haven't read the first two books of the series; it won't make much sense. Then again, since it involves the Voyager crew in conflict with hundreds of hyper-powered beings any one of whom could swat them like flies, and they survive the experience anyway (because of some help from OTHER hyper-powered beings, admittedly) it doesn't make much sense anyway. It's too well-written to rate below two stars,but the story ...more
Evolution is the final book in the String Theory trilogy.

The Doctor is the main focus of this part of the story. He is flung into the weird subspace dimension where he takes a revealing journey which answers more questions about the Ocampa. Tom and Harry have an an adventure with Q and q. Chakotay is in charge of Voyager as Janeway lies in a coma.

This book was a hard for me to get through. I like the character of the Doctor very much but I found his chapters were over long and too involved. The

After Jeffrey Lang’s a simple but perfectly crafted opening “Cohesion” and Kirsten Beyer’s brilliantly constructed and beautifully written epic “Fusion,” Heather Jarman closes the String Theory show with “Evolution,” a peculiarly uneven mix of three mismatching storylines.

One third of the novel is excellent. This is the storyline that most clearly stems from the previous two books. Set onboard Voyager, it continues to explore Seven’s integration into the crew as well as the subtly deepening depr

Shelves: star-trek
Right off the bat, let me just say I hate it when they switch writers within a trilogy. The style changes, the characterization changes and the focus shifts. It's a bad idea. The most disappointing part of this book was that I actually enjoyed the first two in the series. By the time I got to this turd I was already two books into the story, so I had to suffer through the rest of this book. It couldn't be helped. Anyway, there were too many seperate storylines; too much focus on bland, original ...more

The Doctor is lost in the rift. Q helps out Harry and Tom. This is a fun conclusion to the trilogy. The Q bits were delightful and I really liked the Doctors time in Ocampas' past. The other character storylines are ok, but I found myself wanted to read about the Doctor or Tom. A very good read.

Bit of a let down after the previous two books but had a satisfactory ending and wrapped up a few things from the TV series too. Worth reading but don't expect too much.

While the story itself was ok, I could have done without a lot of the extraneous science-type stuff. Chakotay has to assume command of Voyager due to Janeway's impending death, while Tom, Harry and The Doctor have disappeared. Each of these latter three have their own sections throughout, during which the cosmic meddler known as Q makes an appearance, as well as an old friend. I had figured out who that might be as soon as The Doctor was sent to a specific planet a thousand years in the past, to ...more

as neat an ending as you could want when silly pan-dimensional beings get involved. Sad, that it started with such promise. ah well.

Fairly action-packed, and a good conclusion to the trilogy! Great use of existing characters and history (love how much they tied in the Ocampa), and some nice character development. And I couldn't help but giggle at the author's reference to Janeway's seemingly bipolar tendencies...
