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: 31st October 2019
For some context please check out the previous announcement before this one.
It's with quite a lot of regret that today I'm announcing the finishing date for the Reboot, and by extension the series as a whole. That will be 4th December 2019. It was going to be same time next year, however circumstances have put it forward. At the moment I'm preparing the final big update. Whatever's finished for it will be the last episodes rebooted. I'll likely still update the site to fix things, upload Re-Reads and maybe continue converting episodes into a downloadable format.
The series has been technically finished for years, and I've rebooted the majority of what I wanted to. My regret is stopping in the middle of Season Two. The series will be 19 years old on that date, and while I haven't been writing it nonstop 19 years, it has been my life for that entire time. I was 15 when I started, I'm 34 now. It's time to move on. The site will remain online; it isn't an expensive site and my good friend hosts it for me. If you're new here, there's plenty of content and as mentioned, the series is complete, so please stick around. All I was doing was sprucing up episodes I wrote when I was a dumb teen, which I had a problem with and no one (that I know of) else did, so the entire series can be read from start to finish with no issue.
Kiss of Death
A strange and fatal disease forces Voyager to change course. Tom faces a difficult challenge, while Tuvok makes life onboard uncomfortable for some.
Released: 31st October 2019

Episode wise, these are the clues for what I am working on for the final update. Maybe closer to the time if/when I get some finished, I'll start naming them.
+ I'm not having THAT one be the first original after the reboots
+ Some stuff needs only spring cleaning, honest
+ A new entry to Season One needs its partner
+ The one in Season Three I really hate.
+ A duo in dire need of making sense
+ Its title will finally have meaning again
+ Friendship with a side of cheese and sick buckets take over a much better plot

If you're shy and/or don't fancy talking to a mad woman named after a Pokémon who's been writing Voyager fanfiction for 18 years (who can blame you!), but would like to let me know in some fashion what you think of the series, you can do so in the Poll Section.
The main feature at the moment is Episode Battle. All episodes have been mixed up and chucked into 16 rounds where you pick your favourite. To make it easier to keep up with these, four rounds (a league) will go up for an undecided period of time (I will post when I decide). It's just a bit of fun, I hope.
The forums still host the Best Episode of Season Five and Reboot One polls, as well as Reboot Vs Original. So feel free to check those out too.
What is Reboot?
Reboot is 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 you've probably seen already, the Reboot project has reached Season Two. Despite a productive first 2/3 months this year which resulted in Season One's completion and the (second) premiere of Two, the season ground to a halt due to my falling very ill. I'm still not well to be perfectly honest, I'm being treated for my illness (I hope) but it's a slow process and I wouldn't be surprised if I got worse before I got better.
For the moment though I've been able to write again, and barring a relapse I should be able to chuck at least 5 more S2 reboots before year end, if my averages are anything to go by. Click/press the link below to find out what is up and coming.

Marill Re-Reads YWF
James stoops to a new low, kids get beaten up by wrestlers for laughs, Lena walks into couples bedrooms to steal chips, and Chakotay foreshadows some stuff. This is the first (in ages) out of the two contenders for Resistance's "Best of Season Two" throne, will it stab it or burn the throne down?
NEXT TIME on Marill Re-Reads Season Two: WHY!?!?! In the meantime feel free to cringe at older reviews.
