    1. Things to enjoy about this novel: (1) the authors take the over-used parallel universe plot and give it a creative spin; (2) the authors create a story featuring an incredibly grim scenario, resulting in actual emotional consequences; (3) an alien world is created in a most concise & compact manner, managing to convey much detail without info-dumping; (4) the Voyager crew is surprisingly consistent to their mid-season 3 counter-partsexcept for a few season 1 Torres moments getting in the way [...]

    2. The premise was an interesting one, but reading three identical Voyager crews working on the same problem at the same time and coming up with the exact same conclusion at the same time for the same reason got really, really, really repetitive.

    3. Throughout the years we have seen Star Trek books that are completely based on time-travel and restoring the timeline. So it was about time we get to see a novel that leans completely on the other favotite science-fiction clishé: parallel universes.Inspite of the horrible premise "Echoes" holds itself together surprisingly well. Yes, the plot is virtually nonexistant, and the whole purpose of the book is to show us different Voyagers from the one we are used to. We get to follow two of these al [...]

    4. is there truly anything worse than a story which seems to end exactly where it started? perhaps I'm being harsh, really. Echoes was published in January 1998. year of hell, a two-part story line which also sees everything reverting to the way it was at the beginning, more or less, first aired in November the year before. deadlock, an episode of the series often mentioned in Echoes aired in march of 1996, so you'd have thought there was plenty of time,as it were, for events to propagate before a [...]

    5. Objectively speaking this may not be the best book ever, but it was the first full book I ever read on my own (I was 9 and it took me a month) and it launched many years of reading

    6. First of all, according to my book, this is the 15th Voyager book. Also, the authors are Dean Wesley Smith, Kristine Kathryn Rusch, and Nin Kiriki Hoffman, NOT Greg Cox. But anyway, in my continuing attempt to catch up on the all of my Star Trek reading, I've just finished Echoes. Coincidentally, I finished reading this one at the Star Trek convention called Shore Leave, near Baltimore.The premise is that Voyager picks up some subspace waves coming at them at regular two and a half hour interval [...]

    7. The story was very well-written, but I found some of the basic assumptions that were required to make the plotline work dubious at best. If there were that many parallel universes involved, and tiny, but noticable differences appeared just from one to the next, it seems to me that there would be much more noticable, much more significant changes by the time you got to universe 2410. Therefore, the various "Janeways", "Chakotays", etc, would come up with much more varied responses than these did; [...]

    8. Very well written story that ties into the episode 'Deadlock'. This is set sometime before Kes leaves. This book is about Voyager becoming entrapped in a phenomena that involves a shifting pattern of multiple Voyagers and multiple scenarios. There is unspeakable tragedy and a race to stop the 'shifts' from happening. We follow the 'prime' Voyager Crew and two alternatives. Some of the crews shift from one universe to another. There are minor differences between crews and in one instance the crew [...]

    9. For better and for worse, this book feels like a large-scoped episode of the television show. It succeeds in delivering a gut-wrenching problem and writing these familiar characters in a way that feels natural. In the end, I thought that the parallel universe concept was a little misused in that the differences between the alternate Voyagers was simply too minor to really make me appreciate them. I also disliked the ultimate solution to the problem, and thought it was someone cliche, particularl [...]

    10. First there was this amazing passage:"She liked books. A real book could be read in snatches, seconds of escape and relaxation, instead of an afternoon's worth. Sometimes seconds were all she had"But then it got real confusing. I like this author, but the book had way too much back and fourth with too few coherent parts in between. And lets not get started on how off the characters were or the lackluster aliens. Over all I would not recommend this one.

    11. Excellent Voyager book that deals with one of my favorite types of Star Trek episode plots…rallel universes…. Very well written. Would have liked to see more of the Doctor, but still, enjoyable. 4.5/5

    12. Voyager answers a distress signal that involves multiple universes and millions are dying. The story looks at different versions of Voyager and how they cope solving the problem. Interesting premise, and easy to read. It felt a bit short though. A good read.

    13. i really did like this book i liked that you went through and saw what the other voyagers dealt with these bodies that appear in space and i liked how Janeway in our universe had to send a message to the other voyagers to find out how they were going to solve the mystery of the bodies that appear

    14. bookcrossing/journal/6Currently on reserve for a Fandom VBB next month but willing to swap it for another science fiction book.
