I am a bit confused on one thing. As far as everything I have been able to find on the Techno Mages, they KNEW their power was given to them by the Shadows. They KNEW the technology that MADE them Techno Mages was shadow tech? So why does Alwyn tell Galen he might have to destroy himself to keep the Shadows from learning his secrets?

A PPG shot to the chest? Essentially they are plasma weapons, firing bolts of superheated helium. Based on dialogue from the series (courtesy of doctor Franklin.) a direct hit to the chest could disintegrate a person's heart. Instant death. Hopefully that was not what happened here.

How would Vir know about the Babylon 4 incident. Why would he be told? It would not be the kind of information available through average "sources".

I do agree that Janeway is being horribly rigid here. And saying Sheridan is the same as Clark... there's just no comparison. Sheridan was already a military governor before he broke away. And yes, forming an independent state is a drastic action, but when your government becomes corrupted into a ruthless dictatorship that completely violates the laws and values your nation is built on, that becomes a valid response. Sheridan was even decent enough to say they will only remain independent until Clark is removed from office. And as someone else pointed out, Clark was never elected. All Janeway manages to prove with that assertion is her ignorance of how Babylon 5's universe works.

Well, maybe my brutish 21st century brain is just unable to comprehend the smug superiority of Starfleet thinking.

In my experience Sheridan does take advice when and as necessary, but ultimately makes his own desicions, just like any military hierarchy would. Perhaps this is reflective of the different modes of thought I mentioned in reviewing your previous story?

I don't get why you've made everyone assholes.

Season 4 Doctor was not the disgruntled hologram he was in Season 1 and 2. He had grown a lot as a person, but your writing makes it seem as if nothing happened at all.

And Janeway too. Sure, she blamed herself for a lot of things, and she was somewhat strict, but she was smart and kind, not the kind of person Chakotay would be calling a bitch. Those two had enormous respect for one another.

I acknowledge some things are different, always are with fanfictions, but I feel like you've only watched enough Voyager to get a basic understanding of the show.

Dear Soledad,
Wow. I agree with Chakotay. This version of Janeway is turning into a real arm chair general. Her second in command just came back from a battle where hundreds had died, lost people under his command, and then blamed him for each of their deaths. She really needs to stop her pity party and act like a Captain of a Star Ship.
I look forward to see how Seven and her new crew turn out and which ship you chose to be their vessel. I can't remember if the Warlock class had been even thought of back then, but it would be neat to see it as their vessel.
I also think the Voyager crew needs to seriously take their situation seriously. I talking cloaked mine fields, automated weapons platforms, ect... Heck, if they had had a single shuttle with the task force, they could have attempted to beam out their own people from the fighters. If I was captain, I would have broken out my "incase of alternate dimension" data files and had the latest cloak tech installed in all of my ships.
Sorry for the rant and thank you for letting us read your work. I can't wait to read more of it.
Sincerely
John

Thx for the update. Kinda lacked the details of the battle and Ivanova's reaction to Tuvok's power considering that she's a little bit of telepathic. You do know that 7of9 is a Borg princess and likely be the replacement Borg Queen in the field as her position is Tertiary Adjunct of Unimatrix01. Primary Adjunct is likely the Borg Queen for the entire Borg Collective. Secondary Adjunct is likely in charge of logistics in integrating new drones&worlds as well as building new structures&ships. Anyway 7of9 should be able to become a Queen but what's important is that she's also a member of Unimatrix Zero. Hopefully when she goes into regeneration, the modified Teep that she connected to would leave a mental connection to her and end up waking inside Unimatrix Zero's virtual environment by activating 7of9's memory of it. Members of Unimatrix Zero didn't need a Vinculum to meet inside it. 7of9 could setup her regeneration alcove to be the local primary server for Unimatrix Zero and then modified teeps can connect using UZ's specific triaxilating modulation neural interlink frequency to communicate with each other inside the UZ. The local UZ would operate like a BitTorrent server. The cryopods could be assimilated to become a regen/node alcove for the modified teeps. Could be interesting if a whitestar was taken over by the modified teep&enhanced with Borg tech. Note that Galen&the other Technomages has something similar to UZ's virtual environment inside their ship when they meet each other around a virtual campfire.

Liked those perspectives of the battle. Bravo.

Hopefully Kes standing up to Janeway will knock her down a few more pegs.

'terrible upset' and person with GREAT psionic powers aren't things that mix well. :XD Another splendid written chapter, curious how Tuvok now really is and what catalyst Kes underwent. And how a certain Volon vessel might react.
1/29/2019 c21 Crys
Wow. Okay, that was just this side of plausible, but it works.

I just hope nobody makes any crass suggestions or questions of him or Vorik later.
1/29/2019 c21 Inquisitor0
Can't wait for the next chapter. Guess Tuvok should see if he can replicate the psionic resonator that the proto-Romulans had taken with them when they left Vulcan. I'm under the assumption for the sake of this story that Tuvok's clan kept the secret of the weapon or at least understood it's principle tech. Nothing shows firepower better than overkill. As for the visual for the psionic blast, it would look a bit like in the Voyager episode in which Kes fried Tuvok's face as she lost control of her molecular Telekinesis. In this case, it was really Tuvok momentarily losing control on his own powers. When the Vorlons finds out about Tuvok's psionic abilities, they'd either dissect him or mass cloning him as their new weapon.
1/29/2019 c21 Cemalidor
Nice chapter again. :) And yes I remember that book as well, the psionic powers could have 'unfortunate' consequences. And I wouldn't put it past some/several priests that they still would be able to pull impressive stunts, making you points at least plausible. :)

all told a good mix of characters and ideas that work well to craft a good crossover story

Chakotay is right about one thing - Janeway's too inflexible in her thinking. She did well to keep two disparate crews working together and got her ship home, but she'd have had a LOT less trouble if she'd been more flexible. She's about as rigid and hidebound as you can get and still make it to her rank.
1/15/2019 c11 Joe Fenton
Janeway was always too anal about the Prime Directive. In this case, even taking a strict interpretation, the direct interference of the Shadows and Vorlons have rendered any issue moot. There's plenty of precedence for waiving the Prime Directive when higher powers are involved, which is clearly the case here.
1/15/2019 c9 Joe Fenton
Wow, great direction on the story, here. A newer, kinder, gentler Borg? With Seven's forced assimilation, and the telepath's "assimilation" by the Shadows, they'll understand the problem with forcing beings to join unwillingly. Besides, there's really no reason. There will always be those who willing join for their own reasons. Bet you Janeway won't see it that way.
