Very well written story that ties into the episode 'Deadlock'. This is set sometime before Kes leaves.

This book is about Voyager becoming entrapped in a phenomena that involves a shifting pattern of multiple Voyagers and multiple scenarios. There is unspeakable tragedy and a race to stop the 'shifts' from happening. We follow the 'prime' Voyager Crew and two alternatives. Some of the crews shift from one universe to another. There are minor differences between crews and in one instance the crew

The story was very well-written, but I found some of the basic assumptions that were required to make the plotline work dubious at best. If there were that many parallel universes involved, and tiny, but noticable differences appeared just from one to the next, it seems to me that there would be much more noticable, much more significant changes by the time you got to universe 2410. Therefore, the various "Janeways", "Chakotays", etc, would come up with much more varied responses than these did; ...more

Throughout the years we have seen Star Trek books that are completely based on time-travel and restoring the timeline. So it was about time we get to see a novel that leans completely on the other favotite science-fiction clishé: parallel universes.

Inspite of the horrible premise "Echoes" holds itself together surprisingly well. Yes, the plot is virtually nonexistant, and the whole purpose of the book is to show us different Voyagers from the one we are used to. We get to follow two of these alt

First of all, according to my book, this is the 15th Voyager book. Also, the authors are Dean Wesley Smith, Kristine Kathryn Rusch, and Nin Kiriki Hoffman, NOT Greg Cox. But anyway, in my continuing attempt to catch up on the all of my Star Trek reading, I've just finished Echoes. Coincidentally, I finished reading this one at the Star Trek convention called Shore Leave, near Baltimore.

The premise is that Voyager picks up some subspace waves coming at them at regular two and a half hour interval

Objectively speaking this may not be the best book ever, but it was the first full book I ever read on my own (I was 9 and it took me a month) and it launched many years of reading

Excellent Voyager book that deals with one of my favorite types of Star Trek episode plots….parallel universes…. Very well written. Would have liked to see more of the Doctor, but still, enjoyable. 4.5/5

i really did like this book i liked that you went through and saw what the other voyagers dealt with these bodies that appear in space and i liked how Janeway in our universe had to send a message to the other voyagers to find out how they were going to solve the mystery of the bodies that appear
Voyager answers a distress signal that involves multiple universes and millions are dying. The story looks at different versions of Voyager and how they cope solving the problem. Interesting premise, and easy to read. It felt a bit short though. A good read.
Apr 26, 2016 Dustin rated it it was ok
The premise was an interesting one, but reading three identical Voyager crews working on the same problem at the same time and coming up with the exact same conclusion at the same time for the same reason got really, really, really repetitive.

Currently on reserve for a Fandom VBB next month but willing to swap it for another science fiction book.
