Welcome to the home of the Star Trek: Voyager fanfiction series Fifth Voyager. It is based on the premise that every time a decision has to be made or time travel alters the past, a new alternate dimension is created for the changes to play out in. The change that separates Fifth Voyager and Star Trek: Voyager lie in the new characters.

If you're still interested, you'll find the stories/episodes in the Episode Archive. If you're unsure where to start, I recommend having a quick look at the FAQ's.

More episodes have been converted to PDF. If you have any specifc requests, feel free to get in touch via Facebook or Twitter.

"The Chain Reaction" has been edited in advance for two reasons; it was overdue its PDF and I had gotten up to its ReRead, so two/three birds.

"Oasis of Abatua" has been added to "Marill Re-Reads Season Three".

I've added more recommendations below, basing them on my own scores I've been doing in the Re-Reads.

Recommended Reads

Season Two, Episode 08: Saturday Night
Episode Synopsis
It's Saturday night and the theme is revenge. The crew must discover just who is targeting the women of the crew before the perpetrator goes too far.
Why do I recommend it
I really wanted to recommend a certain kind of episode for October, cos you know Halloween. I really didn't want to recommend Halloween. So I thought why not recommend one of the first attempts at a murder mystery slasher horror story (I've recommended Disconnected recently, so it was second). I quite liked the original version of this, and so when rebooting it, it was mostly just a case of adding to it. Of course it's a bit silly and not scary at all, but it's fun and I like the added mystery it has.
Random Quote

"You're acquainted with the victim, correct?" Tuvok questioned. He hinted that she should look at the PADD lying on his desk in front of her.

Lilly acted as if it were a heavy box when she reached over to collect it. When she saw the picture her eyes shifted nervously. "Yes, I mean no." Tuvok's eyebrow raised. "It was nothing, just a little thing."

"She was found murdered in her bathroom this morning. How little of a thing was it?" Tuvok asked as patiently as he could.

"Oh," Lilly said as her face drained. "There's nothing to it, really. A misunderstanding. I wouldn't do anything like that."

Tuvok glanced at his computer to pretend to read it, though he had memorised it already. "You said and I quote; I look like a tangerine. You'll pay for this."

What will reading it now spoil?
It'll spoil the James/Jessie storyline from Interactions to Anarchy, but it's not the main point of the episode.

Best of the Month

As it implies, I recommend an episode I love/like released this month.

B4FV Season Three, Episode 22: Alternate Scorpion

Episode Synopsis
In an alternate reality Voyager reaches Borg Space just in time to get involved in a war between the Borg and a new species.
Why do I recommend it
While I regret it being not only a season finale, but a "series" finale for the prequels, I still really like the episode itself. To be perfectly fair the only reason I regret its position is it and the cancelled "movie" that would've followed it were the original inspiration for the Reboot project, and so Aggression following it instead of Aggressions, its basically the "same episode" twice.

Anyhoo, this episode was created as an homage to one of my writing projects pre-FV, also an AU series. Its first episode was also Scorpion with one little change to the events, which is what Alternate Scorpion uses. It makes this version of Scorpion a lot more unique than Aggression, and its second part is still a lot of fun to go through with the AU introduction to Seven.
Random Quote

Kathryn walked down a corridor. As she was staring straight ahead of her she failed to notice the figures in a queue for the coffee shop. Two drones were now putting up a sign that read 'StarBorgs Coffee' on it, above the counter.

The third in the queue looked a little impatient, he reached out to pull a wire from the drone in front's neck. She raised a hand to stop him, the male drone attempted to avoid, she moved her hand again. This went on for a few minutes.

"Medium Latté," the first drone ordered.

The counter drone stared blankly, "we know."

Hoo boy. It's the prequels season finale, HOWEVER it's more of an AU version of the episode that follows it (Season One's Aggression), so that as well but only if you've never seen Scorpion before. This one's tricky.

Random Trivia

# The series has just over 200 episodes, excluding the rebooted versions.

# Season Five's concept was based on one of my ideas for a spin off series of books called Millennium. The series finale Back To Normal took some basic stuff from the final spin off called The Future.

# Damien wasn't always considered a main character. He only got promoted to one at the end of Season Four.

# Also, the main cast of the series was a heck of a lot bigger in its earlier years. A lot of characters were demoted to regular guest characters around about the same time. The main cast then was the original cast plus Lena, Kiara, James, Jessie, Craig and Damien.

# The original plan was to have eight seasons (one more than Voyager), briefly twelve, until I settled on doing the prequels. This changed it to five main seasons plus the three prequels, still adding up to eight in total.
