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.
Important Announcement: 4th December 2019
For some context please check out the previous announcements before this one.
Today I mark the 19th anniversary of the beginning of the series, and its (second) ending with its last big release. From today I won't be continuing with the reboot of the series due to a number of factors, but I am not abandoning the site entirely. Since I've announced this at the end of October, I've been working on very minor edits to the remainder of Season Two, and I plan to keep this up until the end of Season Three (as well as what's remaining of the prequels, which isn't much). I keep thinking I probably should've done this for the reboot project to begin with, but if I hadn't gone all out with it years back starting with Aggression, I doubt I would've had the renewed drive and inspiration to finish the actual series. It's been worth it, and there's a lot of booted episodes that I'm very proud of.
Voyager arrives in orbit to meet with their allies, only to instead find their meeting place in the middle of a dangerous anomaly.

What is Reboot?
Reboot was the name of the massive project I stupidly decided to properly undertake in 2010, after a failed attempt in 2008. Officially started/released in 2012 with a few rewrites, or remakes if you'd prefer, of the first episode Aggressions and a few others. While Aggression(s) was rewritten from scratch, with the exception of a couple of scenes from the original edited in, there are many episodes that were left mostly intact, with new scenes replacing old ones. Several completely new episodes have been written to replace episodes I've deemed replaceable not only because they're awful, but not important to Fifth Voyager's canon.
As of 4th December 2019, this project has come to a close.

Marill Re-Reads Why oh Why
WHY!?!!?!?! OH no, it's time to take a belly flopped dive into the shallow end that is this episode, the one that caused a lot of problems back in its day. I had not read any of it for probably over a decade, and when I did it was a tense few days. WHY? In a nutshell I was/am an idiot. If you want further details, look no further than this car crash of a Re-Read.
NEXT TIME on Marill Re-Reads Season Two: Marill ruins Drunk Tom forever, Jessie secretly wonders if she zeros her Sin Counter will she finally get through one episode unscathed, Duncan continues to be cute despite his bratiness turn, Lena's never seen Indiana Jones and neither has Marill. Oh yeah and it's yet another song title episode. In the meantime feel free to cringe at older reviews.
Marill Re-Reads Season 2 || Season 1
The latest Reboot episode "Fifth Fantasy" has a word count of 12,208. My aim for this one was to trim out all the weird fat and demote it from a two parter. That I certainly did.
This is where "Fifth Fantasy" currently ranks;
#108 // Previous Position #102 (-6)
Previous #108 position was Voyager Nights
Reboot Season Two #13, ending the reboot on yet another smaller than the others 'un. And that I'm actually very pleased about.
