It’s been two-and-a-half years since a Voyager novel last hit the shelves (March 2018), and Kirsten Beyer has returned for her tenth and possibly final Voyager novel in the show’s 25th Anniversary year. To Lose the Earth picks up right where Architects of Infinity left off, in late 2382. (If you’ve been following the other “shared continuity” Trek novels*, you’ll know that another leg of the story has reached 2387.) So the first question that comes to mind might be: “Sue, if I haven’t been kept up with these novels – or if I’ve forgotten some of what happened – will I be totally lost?” Well, if there’s one thing Star Trek has always been good at, it’s exposition. Though you might have some additional knowledge or fine details if you have a fresh memory of all of the exploits of the Full Circle Fleet, Beyer does a great job filling you in on what you need to know to follow this story. There might be some new crew to meet and some new ships to explore, but plenty of our old favorites are still around.
