The U.S.S. Voyager finds itself in a system where a planet might have existed, but doesn't. Where the planet should have been, millions and then billions of people are appearing from nowhere and dying in the vacuum of space.
To solve the mystery and save billions of lives, Captain Janeway will have to face alternate versions of herself and the crew of Voyager -- not just one almost-mirror-image, but many. Janeway will have to find a way to work with her alternate selves, with whom she shares much but each of whom has a different agenda. At stake is the survival of Voyager and the lives of billions of innocent people.

At the very least, in a parallel universe that differed so much from ours that in it, a planet that existed in our universe is rubble in the other, there might be more noticable differences, and in those realities even farther away than that (on the other side of that one) differences would begin to rapidly accumulate.
As I say, the story was well-written, the concept interesting if dubious, the characterizations well-handled. I just have difficulty suspending disbelief sufficiently to swallow the basic plot concept.
The story ends as most time travel/alternate dimension stories end, with the crew sacrificing themselves to preserve the timeline, and afterwards, nobody really knows what happened, sort of pointless in a way, bit like Year in Hell.
The writing was solid, excellent characterisations, and nearly every major character played a role, even Kes. The novel was set in season 3, pre seven of nine Voyager, so the story wasn't centered around the Borg. I felt this story really captured the 'essence' of season 3, each season of the show has a distinct look and feel about it, this book was most definitely season 3.
The novel also dealt with the alternate dimensions well, the left/right system was a good analogy, not as confusing as a more recent J&G novel series, the authors made it fairly easy to understand. Another point of mention, what was the go with three authors? It's a rare event to see a novel with three authors, but the results are there is this one.
A good read, reminiscent of the days when Voyager was relatively innocent, before the plot became too convoluted, maybe not worth buying, but definitely worth borrowing from a library of friend.
