Captain Chakotay's First Trek Oct. 26 2004
By D. Bell - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Old Wounds is an interesting new addition to the Star Trek: Voyager story and a good, fast read. All but two of the characters we have come to know & love are there: Chakotay, new Captain of the Voyager, with Harry Kim as his head of security; Admiral Janeway & Tuvok teaching at Star Fleet Academy, where Seven of Nine and the Doctor are members of a Think Tank and the Doctor continues his fight for Holographic Rights. Tom, B'Elanna, and their daughter are on the Klingon world Boreth searching for clues about why some think their daughter is a Messiah. Neelix is still in the Delta Quadrant; Kes' whereabouts are unknown.

On his first Starfleet mission as a Captain, Chakotay is ferrying some colonists back to their home planet, evacuated during the Cardassian War. His sister, Sekaya, is along as a spiritual advisor to the colonists, helping to make their reintegration into the world easier. Back on earth, Harry Kim's beloved Libby is combining her career as a musician with her other calling as a spy for the Federation, rooting out moles. And several new characters are included, most notably Dr. Jarem Kaz, a joined Trill whose last host was active in the Maquis, the ship's physician, and Astall, the counselor from a race called the Huanni, who are even more empathetic than Betazoids. Commander Andrew "Priggy" Ellis, a by the book officer, is his second in command.

The trip is uneventful until they near the planet, when things go horribly wrong. . .

It's good to see most of the old faces in a new Voyager adventure. I enjoyed this and am looking forward to the sequel.

One criticism: the book cover read Spirit Walk Book One. It didn't specify one of two, one of three, one of six thousand. It would have been helpful to know how many were in this series.

Voyager books are Golden! Nov. 20 2004
By A. Scrymgeour - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
The new Spirit Walk Voyager books are nothing short of amazing! The first 2 post tv show books, homecoming and farther shore, were marvelous captavating tales that didn't let the reader OR the voyager fan down at all!! The new Spirt Walk books keep up the great work with fantastic writing and great character insight! The author captures the crew of voyager perfectly in the amazingly fantastic super charged voyager thriller! I just finshed reading parts 1 and 2 and would reccomend ANYONE who ever had a slight INTEREST in Voayger, to pick these books up! You really can't put them down until you have finished them! My only comment is i want MORE!!! I can't wait for the next Golden Voyager books to come out because Spirit Walk 1 & 2 were so great!!! From raw cookie dough to ferocious looking gentle Klingon babysitters, the 2 Spirit Walk books do not dissapoint in the slightest!!! They need to make an animated series or an animated movie out of the 4 Golden Voyager books that are out because these books are the BEST!!!

I look forward to hearing about when the next Golden Voyager books are going to come out!!!!

Pick these books up folks, ANY fan of Voyager or Star Trek is SURE to love em!!!

Much better than Homecoming Oct. 9 2006
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Like the new Star Trek Titan novels, our other favourite First Officer gets a well-deserved promotion to Captain of USS Voyager. And brings along plenty of old and new interesting characters for the ride. We are introduced to Chakotay's sister Sekaya - and congratulations to whomever chose Sekaya's portrait on the book's front cover - yowsers! Apart from Chakotay, the spotlight is also focused on Dr. Jarem Kaz, the new Trill Chief Medical Officer, who has quite a few secrets of his own he needs to deal with. Also interesting and believable is the unresolved tension between the old Voyager crew and the veterans of the Dominion War. This kind of interpersonal conflict is much more believable than the conspiracy-fuelled actions of the previous Homecoming duology.

The first half- to three-quarters of the book is revisiting old characters and introducing new ones. Thats fine by me, as Christie Golden has a much more confident grasp of the characters by now. The result is a much better written book with more believable character motivations than what transpired in Homecoming. I still didn't enjoy these as much as the Star Trek Titan novels, but its still worth a read to revisit old friends. And I hope to see more adventures of the new Voyager in the future.

Voyager Season 8 with Captain Chakotay Nov. 26 2004
By Picardfan007 - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Too bad the actor; Robert Beltran didn't get the chance to portray this character for a TV episode. Chakotay shines in this new book by Christine Golden. It's almost like reading an episode adaption only it isn't! I wish that the two book format was one of choice for the editors. The six and seven book sagas really get too drawn out. This one pits the old Voyager crew against the new recuits that have joined the ranks. It is like going home again with this series because the books transend anything the TV show has done with it's uneven quality.

Just a really long introduction Jan. 13 2005
By R. Spottiswood - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
The intent of this book was to establish the main characters of the new Voyager crew. Unfortunately, that's all there is to it, and it's not even well done. The character descriptions are quite vivid, but there is not a lot of depth to them. Essentially, the major characters are either suffering from psychological "old wounds", or the people attempting to heal them. The character interactions are well done, but similarly shallow. The general descriptions of people and places are fairly good but still shallow. I would normally describe the action now - but there isn't any! Up to about page 200, nothing solid happens, and not much really happens after that. The author begins story after story, virtually one for each of the characters, but there is almost nothing beyond that. In a duology, at worst you should be halfway through most of the stories by the end of the first book. Here *nothing* is developed beyond the first elements.

I cannot recommend this book in any way. This will almost certainly not help decide whether the second book is worth getting. It is not remotely worth it as a stand-alone book, because it isn't even half of one. Finally, I have not gotten or read the second book yet, but I strongly suspect you could read that book without any need to read this.
