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.

Okay, this could've gone better. While I was away at the end of September, I wrote all but two scenes of Dimension Jump's replacement in a notebook. The 3/4 of a notebook is taking longer to type than I thought. My plan was to keep the already finished Resistance as a backup until there was another to replace it. I was going to release Resistance at the beginning of the month, I had the update all prepared, because I figured it was "just" two scenes and it wouldn't take long to type. Ha! I decided the original Resistance was the best place to stop to allow me to catch up and so cancelled the update. Then I was worried that if I released Resistance once Anarchy was done, it'd mean Games Resistance/Over would need releasing "immediately", leaving the controversial Dimension Jump as the next original entry until I'd rebooted episode 8 Saturday Night. Nope. I've worked on both reboots off and on since...

It's now over three weeks later, more than two months since Disconnected was released. My reinstate the backup system plan has failed-ish. It's not all bad. Both Game Over and Anarchy are near their finish lines, so I'm hoping once Game Over is ready for its upload, Anarchy will soon follow. It all depends on how I manage an okay episode like Saturday Night. Today though, it's all about the so called Season Two "great one"... for the most part.

Coming Soon updated with progress for the next two reboots.

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.

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.

Episode Sizes

The latest Reboot episode "Resistance" has a word count of 21,033. The reboot has almost doubled its size, which I didn't expect. I know that happens a lot but original Resistance is one of the good ones. I suppose it having the reputation of being the good one, made it so I had to keep it that way and I've enjoyed Reboot Season Two a lot so far, it had big shoes to fill. Original Resistance did have a fair few problems that needed fixing, and I hope I've done so.

This is where "Resistance" currently ranks;

Overall #45 // Previous Position #108 (+63)
  Previous #45 position was Season Four's Burnt Out And Falling, which I upgraded to two parter status a few years back. Oh dear.
Reboot Season Two #4, knocking Resistance Isn't Futile down to #5.

"Resistance" is the seventh entry of 2018. This episode I felt was the perfect entry to stall on so I could re-establish the backup system, since the original I had less objections to being the original any new readers would reach first. With Anarchy making an early finish, it was tempting to release Resistance sooner, but I needed more time to get Game Over and Anarchy ready. Something I still haven't done, oh well.

Other episode(s) released on the same date was the Season Two cast off, rejigged for the prequels Memories back in 2003. If it were not for certain personal events, Memories would've been released 9th September 2001, two weeks after the original Resistance.

Marill Re-Reads Saturday Night

I still have a bitter taste in my mouth after the last one. Let's hope this one sweetens things up a bit.

I dumped Memories; a harmless little filler episode about Chakotay's memory of Voyager being wiped, for another episode of murder and mayhem. Four days after 9/11. WTF WAS WRONG WITH ME? God. 2001 me had no soul.

GAH, I'll try to go into this with an open mind, guys. This isn't a good start.
