After seven long years in the Delta Quadrant, the crew of the starship 'Voyager' now confront the strangest world of all: home. For Admiral Janeway and her officers, their return brings new honours and responsibilities, reunions and, for some, the challenge of forging new lives.

I enjoyed this a lot more than I thought I would. I've never read tie-in novels before, but needed something to read during breaks from studying for finals. Watching TV is my go-to, but it really dulls my focus; nonetheless I wanted something lighthearted, fast, and pretty meat-less to read. This really satisfied that desire. It reads like the TV show, the characters are written similarly to the TV show for the most part, and the plot has the nice straightforward shape of an episode of TV.

I didn't like that the crew was split up so quickly, but this book and the next one do a good job of finding a place for everyone. The Torres/Paris stories feel kinda glued on, as they have a very different journey from everyone else.

Overall, not a work of stunning literature, but a nice fun romp in a universe I enjoy. I'll definitely be reading more of these. ( )

A continuation after the end of Star Trek Voyager.

As much as I loved the Star Trek: Voyager tv series, the ending always felt a bit rushed to me. Thankfully, Christie Golden picks up right where Voyager left off, bringing you back with your old friends on the crew. Find out what happens after they return to Earth and pick their lives back up. But don't get too settled. Like any good Star Trek mystery, things start going wrong before they start going right. And that's where Homecoming part 1 sets you up with. Now I can't wait to read part 2!

A great companion book to the series, a must-read for any fan of the series. I can't believe I waited so long to read this after I finished the series! ( )

Over the past month or so, I ended up marathoning all seven seasons of Star Trek Voyager (that's 172 episodes, if you're wondering). And when I got to the end my prevailing thought was, "But what happens next?!". A bit of googling lead me to Star Trek Voyager: Homecoming by Christie Golden, a media tie-in novel that directly follows on from that series finale. So I bought it, and I inhaled it. And the only reason I'm not currently inhaling the sequel — for it is part of a duology, not a standalone — is because I'm writing this review. This review (and the blurb below) contains spoilers for the Star Trek Voyager series, including the finale.

The story picks up right where the series left off and follows many of the ensemble cast as they are welcomed back to Earth/the Federation. Things, of course, do not quite go as planned. As well as the expected difficulties of reintegrating back into normal society, some unexpected obstacles/disasters crop up.

My main small complaint is that with so many characters, we don't get to spend very much time with each of them. We get the important parts of the picture, but it was a little frustrating that there were so many to cycle through. On the other hand, a new (sort of) character is introduced with good effect: Harry Kim's girlfriend, who we met briefly in an alternate-timeline episode. Turns out, when Harry disappeared for seven years she, among other things, became a spy. She ends up being the character that has the most pieces of the puzzle, letting the reader in on some useful information.

The most pertinent thing to repeat is that this is not a stand-alone novel. The ending is more what you'd expect from the first episode in a two-episode arc of a TV show and offers no resolutions whatsoever. There is only cliffhanger doom.

I enjoyed Homecoming and I will definitely be reading the sequel. I recommend it to fans of Star Trek Voyager who want to know what happens next to the character of that show. Or who are having difficulty letting go of it, like I am.

4 / 5 stars

I found the writing and storyline extremely stale. The only part of this entire series that I liked was B'Elanna's storyline - it's the only part that remained at least somewhat true to character. ( )

Excellent fiction extension of the ST:Voyager series story. I took off half a star because the story ends in a cliffhanger and I must now wait to get part 2 from the library:-) But I enjoyed visiting old friends from the TV series and seeing one account of what could happen when they finally return back to Earth.
