A welcome return to form for the Voyager "Relaunch", after the dreadful Spirit Walk duology!

This is also where the EU Star Trek stuff, IMO, really starts to gain cohesion; after the events of Star Trek: Destiny: The Complete Saga: Gods of Night, Mere Mortals, and Lost Souls, all the Star Trek books begin to move together as a whole; this becomes even more prevalent after the Seize the Fire saga.

And, just a minor quibble… Something sadly not present in this book (but beginning later in the Voyage

It's hard to rate this as a whole because it didn't read like one book, but rather two loosely related novels smashed together. The first story continues the thing with B'Elanna and Miral, wherein the baby is kidnapped and Chakotay ends up sending almost a hundred people to fight and many to die to save one child's life. I couldn't help but raise my eyebrows at that. Sure, maybe her closest friends would have jumped on that irrational train, but can you imagine being one of the security officers ...more

The entire Voyager series under Kirsten Beyer has been impressive, but this novel sets the stage for the greatness that follows. Full Circle was, at the time I first read it, one of the best Trek novels I had ever read, and now, years later, it retains much of that status. While it isn't my absolute favorite of the relaunch series (that honor is reserved for the truly singular Children of the Storm), it is still at the top of a very select list of truly great Trek novels. A huge hearty recommend ...more

3.5/5. Good Star Trek angst here.
Hard to judge as one book...

As others have said, this one is hard to review because it doesn’t really read like a single book. Although, it does seem to contain a decent, traditional novel inside its first half; that part read like a well-done, B'Elanna-centered, short novel. The rest of the book is more just a collection of short snippits of what the Voyager crew have been experiencing in the years between "Spirit Walk" and this one. Those parts basically serve to rebuild the "Voyager" Relaun

"So Rachel, why was this book that you so adored banished into the realm of disgrace known as the 2 star review?"

Well, I'm glad you asked.

The reason this book was bumped down to 2 stars is because of several issues with the key elements of the story.

And this is currently February…and I started this review in like idk I think it was maybe summer of last year????

So why, you may ask, have I spent this long dredging over a book I gave 2 stars?

I went back and forth several times over the course of this one whether I liked it or I hated it, so I finally settled somewhere in the middle.

Full Circle is really two connected stories that start out with the continuing adventures of B'Elanna Torres and Miral Paris. I'm in the minority in that I don't care for most Klingon stories so this was a bit of a chore for me. The second connected story sets up the continuing adventures of the USS Voyager.

Rather flat for a Star Trek book, basically nothing more than a set-up for a new series. Has everyone forgotten how to write stand-alones?

Star Trek Voyager: Full Circle by Kirsten Beyer is a science fiction novel based on the television show Star Trek: Voyager. It continues the story after the last episode of the show.

In this book, the main plot surrounds B’Ellana Torres, Commander Paris, and their baby daughter, Miral. There is a subplot on Admiral Janeway and Captain Chakotay’s relationship that plays an important part in the story. There is also a s

I have mixed feelings about this book. Since I am a Janeway and Chakotay fan it was a bit sad...It is still a wonderful book though!!! I loved reading about what happened to the Voyager's crew after they returned to Earth. The first half is about B'Elanna and her daughter. Someone warns her that she and Miral are in danger..She learns that two different Klingon sects want her daughter.By the end she makes a hard choice for her and her daughter's safety.
The second part was the best part. It focus

This is a continuation of the Voyager saga; if you haven't read previous entries in the series, you may want to hold off on reading this one until you've read all of its predecessors, not because this story wouldn't make sense on its own, but because there are serious plot spoilers here for the previous books. But eventually, you'll want to get to this book; it's quite well done and takes the story in an interesting direction. The characterizations are handled smoothly and ring true to the chara ...more

In August 2014 I read my very first Star Trek novel. It was Caretaker, and with that a wonderful journey of reading Star Trek began.
I've read mostly Voyager, which is the Trek closest to my heart, and decided from the very beginning that I wanted to read all of the novels about this amazing ship and its crew. That being said, Full Circle was one of a few books that I was looking forward a little extra to read. So, as you might have already figured out by now, my expectations of this novel were p
SUPER IMPORTANT: Though this is the fifth book in the Star Trek Voyager Relaunch Series, you should most certainly read Star Trek: Before Dishonor, Star Trek: Greater than the Sum, and Star Trek: Destiny (three parts). It's a lot of reading to do before you get to this book after having finished Christie Golden's Enemy of My Enemy, but if you don't you would definitely struggle to keep up with all of the events discussed throughout Full Circle.

Is it a bridge or a book? I really like where Kirste

I'm not going to mark this as having a spoiler, but there are some soft spoilers, so beware. With all the Star Trek that I've watched, I feel almost like the characters are an ersatz family. To write a novel about characters that the fans feel they own must be difficult. There were times when I didn't agree with Beyer. I think Seven does have a spirituality, it's just not nurtured or acknowledged. She did worship her ideas of perfection. In a way the author of such a novel has to really step out ...more

Had to give up. If a novel starts with an abrupt major character death for which to understand I would have to read novels from a WHOLE DIFFERENT SERIES OF BOOKS that's something I just can't accept. It's bad enough that Star Trek obviously abandoned the concept of standalone novels (that I loved and cherished, personally). But this here becomes so much like the Marvel Cinematic Universe that my wish to read this books just died. I love the show. (Except for ENT I loved all the shows.) But how t ...more

Despite my many different views on a number of things that happened, I had to give it 5 stars.

The author made some extremely bold choices with the story, some I agreed with and some that made me physically drop my kindle. On reflection though, I think that the cut-throat, irreversible scenes have been lacking from Star Trek as a whole, ultimately worked in this book.

I enjoyed how the book was written, the storytelling was excellent and I'd recommend to any Star Trek fans.

My one drawback. Cert
Robert Sparrenberger
Probably 3.5 stars. I really dislike the Klingon religious stuff at the beginning of the book. It started slow and then we totally shifted gears in the second half of the book. Chakotay would never have wallowed in his sorrow either. His faith is too strong.

That being said I enjoyed the book and plan to read the next one.

I sincerely love how Beyer has resurrected these characters that I love. I'm grateful that she gave Janeway & Chakotay the relationship that felt inevitable to the audience and how (spoiler for later books) she brought Kathryn back. I look forward to reading more of her Voyager novels. ...more

this should have been two separate books.

the first half was quite honestly just boring, i couldnt find it in me to care at all.

the second half was A Mess. the time skips, the back and forth, flashbacks that didnt make sense, there was next to no context really given on the war against the borg and i just felt like i didnt have enough information at any point to really understand what was going on with the plot or the characters...... and then the needless killing of a bunch of side characters in

Read Star Trek: Destiny by David Mack before you read this book. I didn't and it totally spoiled ST: Destiny quite thoroughly.

Nonetheless, it's a fine Voyager story. Probably the best Voyager book I've yet read, aside from Voyager: Mosiac. Full Circle is the first in the Voyager relaunch series and continues the story after Voyager has returned from the Delta Quadrant. This is a big and epic story. Actually, it's more than one novel. It's like two or more novels in one as it tells more than a s

I rather enjoyed this relaunch of the relaunch series. I didn't expect the Voyager (or the Federation) to be going back into the Delta quadrant so soon, but I can't wait to see where this ends up. The fleet of ships beings prepared gives me mental shades of Battlestar Galactica. ...more

This was a nice way to fill in the gaps surrounding the death of Admiral Kathryn Janeway (in the pages of Star Trek Next Generation Before Dishonor). We saw what happened, but not the effect it had on her Voyager family.

It took me a minute to keep up with the jumping back and forth from two years before the admiral's death to the present day, but I got the hang of it soon enough. I enjoyed seeing Admiral Janeway help Tom Paris and B'Elanna Torres protect their daughter Miral from two sects of Kl
