    Title: Labyrinth (The)
    Author: Trekgrrl
    Rating: M
    Genre: Drama/Angst/Romance
    DLP Category: Other Fandoms (ST:Voyager)
    Pairing: Janeway/OC
    Status: A series of connected one-shots. Quite large.
    Summary: While traversing a quagmire of navigational anomalies, Voyager stumbles upon a starship graveyard. In it is a functioning Cardassian sleep tube containing an Deltan/Orion female wanted for crimes against the Federation. However, there are more alien things to be worried about in the center of a labyrinth...

    Contains one of the best OC's I've read in any fandom.

    Plot is superb. Style of writing is straightforward, with an extensive vocabulary and little pretension.

    Tries very hard to sustain a technological consistency.

    One-shots are sequential.


    5/5.

    It's Voyager. That right there puts it in the -5/5 catagory. You're right on the grammar and lack or pretentiousness, so that gives it a three to its score, bringing the score overall up to -2/5. The length gives it another three, bringing this up to 1/5.

    I'm sorry, but that is as high as I can bring myself to rate any Voyager fic. This fic tried, I admit. Really, it did. It's just that the author was trying to build a castle out of a pile of shit to begin with. It doesn't matter how great the castle becomes at the end, because it is still made out of shit.

    Recently saw a Voyager fic recommended in the Library, and it reminded me of this one.

    I still find this as excellent as I did back when I first recommended it. It has a tension that a lot of stories in this fandom (Star Trek in general, I mean) lack and some of the solutions are still quite ingenuous, rather than being imagined out of thin air as most of them in this genre are.

    A lot of people may not like Voyager for various reasons, but the focus of this story is on the good parts of the show, and especially the Captain.

    As before, 5/5.

    Ps. It may or may not be finished. There are 6 reasonably lengthy one-shots as of now, and that is quite likely as long as it will ever be.
