Publisher's Summary

Captain Kathryn Janeway, commander of the Starship Voyager, is fighting a desperate battle on two fronts: while she duels the Kazon warship in the gaseous mists of a murky nebula, an Away Team led by Lt. Tuvok is trapped on the surface of a wilderness planet. Forced to choose between the lives of the Away Team and the safety of her ship, Captain Janeway reviews the most important moments of her life, and the pivotal choices that made her the woman she is today. From her childhood to Starfleet Academy, from her first love to her first command, she must once again face the challenges and conflicts that have brought her to the point where she must now risk everything to put one more piece in the mossaic that is Kathryn Janeway.

Relaxing and enjoyable

I love that Kate Mulgrew narrated this book. It adds so much depth to the reading. The story was enjoyable and I always wanted to hear more.

I have to admit that Voyager wasn't my favorite Star Trek and Janeway wasn't even my favorite Captain. But maybe I've made a mistake.
I found this story engaging and engrossing. I cared about all the characters and I dearly wish that it had been longer.

I have no doubt I will re-listen to this book and I will buy more books narrated by Kate. She has a natural style that was very appealing. It's also obvious that she cares about the material in the loving way she gives passion to her reading.

Bravo Kate, and thank you.

Best Star Trek book I've heard yet!

Only Kate Mulgrew could have done this book justice. She IS Captain Janeway, as surely as William Shatner IS Captain Kirk... Everything about her narration of this story was delightful: pacing, inflections, and emotion were all spot on.

The story itself has three main threads running through it: milestones and character shaping events in Janeway's life, Tuvok and an away team stranded on a planet, and Voyager battling with the Kazon over said planet.

I most enjoyed the bits about Janeway's life. Kate Mulgrew really brings the young Katherine to life - you feel like you are there with her in her early life. The threads involving Tuvok, Kes, Harry, etc seemed to suffer somewhat from abridgement. Overall I wasn't terrifically interested in the these two other threads. There is one point where some Kazon meet a very gruesome end that I thought was unnecessarily grotesque and overdone. Fortunately this portion is brief. Overall, a most excellent and enjoyable listen. I really felt that the Janeway portions added a great deal of dimension to the character.

Good story but...

I gave this only three stars not because of the story but because of the abridgment. Story is great and you learn much about Janeway. I just really dislike abridgments, I wish all the Star Trek book were not like this.

Shockingly Exceptional

To say that this Star Trek story was merely good would be an understatement. It is one of the best stories to be written by Jeri Taylor. This Novel provides a look into the soul of Captain Janeway. I for one found this book engaging and poignant. A good audio book if I ever heard one.

Kate Mulgrew shines

Kate Mulgrew’s narration is perfection. She IS Captain Janeway! The story is interesting. I love learning Capt Janeway’s back-story that we never learn in Voyager, but answers a lot of questions about where she came from and how she got there. The sound effects in the story are a bit corny and make the recording sound a bit dated...but to be fair it *is* dated since it was recorded back in 1996. Just know that it sounds like the 90’s. Other than that - it’s perfection.

Great ST Voyager Episode, but one unusual distraction

The story was captivating, holding my attention from beginning to end. I’ll listen to it again in a few years. The reader Kate Mulgrew was superb; however, having the Captain Janeway persona also be the narrator was slightly confusing. After having watched every ST Voyager episode a few times, for me it was near impossible to distinguish the character Capt Janeway from the narrator Kate Mulgrew. In spite of this minor distraction, the audiobook is outstandingly narrated. As a dramatization, this would have been beyond outstanding.

Trekkie :)

I'm a big Star Trek fan, and Voyager has only added to it. Kate Mulgrew as Captain Janeway sealed the deal - and LOVED hearing her narrate this.
Maybe I'm a bit of a baby, but there were several parts of this story that brought tears to my eyes.
loved it! ❤❤❤

Great story and performance

Fans of Voyager will love this.
Fans of Janeway will ADORE it.
Stellar performance by Kate Mulgrew, however the sound effects are sometimes distracting and too loud. Nevertheless, the story is intriguing and well written.

slightly confusing story

Whilst Kate Mulgrew gives a very good performance of the characters. The actual story let it down for me, the plot line seemed to jump from one theme to another.

One minute Janeway is the captain we all know and admire, the next she is a child laid in a field in the rain crying. then she is an adult again, then she is back on the bridge of Voyager, then she is a child again etc etc.

Very annoying to be honest. I found myself glad when the story was finished.
