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.

The Voyager crew begin hallucinating about deceased family and friends, and family/friends from home, all of which lead them into deadly traps.
Why do I recommend it
Personally I'd recommend the entire "Facing Fears" Saga (see Other Links), I feel Fantastical gets the spirit of it consistently right. While it's meant to be a dire situation for the crew, there's plenty of FV'yness in it; the silly humour, the character interactions.
Kathryn marched over to stand in front of the two men. "I'll decide where to start Commander! Now why didn't either you tell me about these so called ghosts?"
"I tried Captain but you told me to get lost," Tuvok replied.
"Oh.." Kathryn said awkwardly. She shook it off and got angry again, "I bet you had the Conference meeting before then, you should have told me sooner."
"Damn she's good," Chakotay whispered.

Nothing, other than an earlier episode if you haven't read that. See Other Links.

Best of March
As it implies, I recommend an episode I love/like released this month.
Season One, Episode 22:
Outside of Time
Voyager encounters an entire fleet of adrift ships surrounding the USS Leda, a Starfleet ship which disappeared over 90 years ago.
Why do I recommend it
It may have started out as a ripoff/parody of the film Ghost Ship, I think Outside of Time does a lot to make itself different. It pretty much has a bit of everything going on, and does well as a season finale/cliffhanger.
Tom turned around, he bumped into something. "Oh excuse m... aaaah!" he screamed, backing off.
"What, what?" Chakotay asked.
"That's not pretty," Tom muttered in response, he walked as far away from his last position as he could.
Danny flashed her torch at his previous spot, a tall dead guy was resting against the wall, minus the top of his head. "That's what you get for being tall, mate," Danny said.

What will reading it now spoil?
Very little I imagine, should be safe.

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.

Latest Additions: 17th March 2020
Marill Re-Reads Suicidal
Lilly feels a bit edgy, James and Emma get some piercings, Jessie forgets where she was stabbed one time and I can't blame her not being able to keep track, Harry has a great day, Tom has some toast, and Triah goes for a swim. Thrilling stuff.
Marill Re-Reads Heiress
Kidz Trek: The Voyager Original Series continues to be butchered so it fits into Fifth Voyager's universe, and Lena has a tantrum over not being the star two episodes in a row.
NEXT TIME on Marill Re-Reads Season Two: The Love Spell meets its latest challenger. Can it defeat the one that victimises the kid/teen characters so bloodily, assumes pregnant people get food cravings on day one, and retcons a lot of J/J's relationship because daw past Marill's squeamish and prudeish. In the meantime feel free to cringe at older reviews.
Marill Re-Reads Season 2 || Season 1
# 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.
