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

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

The first half of the book is a little slow, while the second half of the book has a lot of great character moments in it. I wasn't expecting the ending or where various characters wind up. I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series

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

Fate's Lady
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

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.

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

I love Voyager the series and looked forward to reading the books to expand on it. But this was the most drawn out book ever. It was all over the place and I didn't know if they where coming or going.

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?

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

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

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

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 book is good, but depressing. And the beginning of a series. Which I didn't know. So I was finishing it at 2am, crying and then freaking out that it wasn't really over.

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

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
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
Star Trek: Voyager: Full Circle by Kirsten Beyer Full Circle is the first of the Beyer VOY-re-relaunch book, taking the flaundering series up in time to frame the Borg-invasion, the Destiny-events and their repercussions.
First of all, there's Janeway who, after finally admitting that she's in love with Chakotay, apparently dies in the TNG novel "Before Dishonor" - leaving Chakotay deeply depressed and questioning everything. He in turn has to seek mandatory counseling over whether or not he's s

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

i have to give this book credit. it actually made me like Voyager more! now Star Trek Voyager is far from a bad show. hell it has moments where it even rises higher than the other trek shows. but those moments are few and far between. but this book made me appreciate the characters more than the show ever could. Hell, i despise Tom Paris but this book made me like him a little bit!

There's basically two plots going on in this book. One involving Tom and B'alanna's daughter and a ancient group of
You should read Star Trek: Destiny before reading this book. Many of the events in this book would spoil the story of Destiny if you read them here for the first time. This book (and my review) would spoil Destiny for you, but my review won't spoil Full Circle itself.

Full Circle is full of adventure and deep personal struggles. The book is split into two parts. Part one is a story focusing on a threat to B'Elanna and her daughter. This has a good amount of action and could have been marketed as

A trip down memory lane... In light of Leonard Nimoy's passing last week I'd been cruising Youtube for Spock fanvids - and along the way I stumbled across a couple of Janeway/Chakotay vids. I only watched the first couple of seasons of Voyager, but theirs was one of the first pairings I looked up when I discovered online fandom, so it holds nostalgia.
I'd spoiled myself for the ending of the series, so I knew they never got it together (even worse, Chakotay was paired with Seven in what most fan

Review originally posted at

Full Circle follows the adventures of the Voyager and her crew from the events of Before Dishonor and beyond the events of the Destiny trilogy. Essentially it's a catch up novel and split into two books, the first dealing with the kidnapping of Miral Paris and her rescue by the Voyager crew.

This part of the book dealt very heavily with Klingon mythology and as a fan of the Klingon culture in general, I really enjoyed this. I did struggle however
Full Circle continues the story of the crew of the Star Ship Voyager after it has returned to the Alpha Quadrant.

A disclaimer. It's helpful to read the following Star Trek novels before picking up this book.
Before Dishonor by Peter David
Homecoming, The Farther Shore, The Spirit Walk Duology by Christie Golden
The Destiny Trilogy by David Mack.

I know that sounds like a lot but it is part of an interconnected series. It is worth it.

The story in the book is not told in a strict chronological seque

It's been a long time since I have read a new Star Trek book but I could not pass up on this one because I always wondered what happened to the crew of Voyager after they returned to Earth. Little did I know Beyer had written Star Trek Voyager: Full Circle which I believe is the book right before Unworthy. Since I have not read Full Circle some things were a little confusing for me but you can still follow the story and really get pulled in. It was sad to read about a Voyager journey without Jan ...more
