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.

Coming Soon Updated; Disconnected and Resistance.

The "Episode Battle" poll has been fixed. For some reason it worked on my computer but nowhere else. I'm gonna assume it was only compatible with the version of Firefox I have to use for XP. The new one fits better into the site anyhow, plus it's easier to manage. So please, check it out.


Last Updated: 1st August 2018

Coming Soon Updated; Disconnected's progress.

"Disconnected" has been added to "Marill Re-Reads Season Two".

History; An error in Episode Sizes has been fixed.

The Poll section has replaced Multimedia. Why? Well, after I delete the majority of the desktops I don't want anymore (long story) and/or are too small for computers these days, there wouldn't be much left. And I really doubt anyone's interested in my lazy credits video (also not keen on keeping because of the same long story).

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.

Marill Re-Reads Disconnected

Please be good, please be good.......

Okay there's no use pleading to the hypothetical gods. I remember enough about Disconnected to know that even though around the 3/4 mark the Marill Rush kicks in to ruin everything that's gone before, it's still going to be the best episode of the season so far. Not that there's any competition in Season Two yet.

Disconnected was a half decent story, a one I'd not hesitate to stick into a Top 20 best episode of the series list. But I can't. Disconnected like many before falls victim to the parody/rip off curse. It was clearly inspired by what it ended up ripping off, don't get me wrong, but the story and primarily its starring character's arc in the episode were doing their own thing. Somewhere I either realised the time and started to rush, or lost my mojo and because I'm still hesitant to give up when I'm clearly not in the writing zone, kept going and ended up with an almost word for word copy of its inspiration material.

Episode Sizes

The latest Reboot episode "Interactions" has a word count of 27,368. I'm not too surprised with this, as half way through I realised that the original version's "middle" and finale were pretty damn rushed despite how much actually happens there. There was a lot of ground to cover which I did not want to brush over in a sentence or two like I did so many years ago. The problem with this is the size pretty much puts it into "two parter" territory when I wanted it as a solo episode like Love Spell.

Before I ramble, this is where "Interactions" currently ranks;

Overall #24 // Previous Position #115 (+91)
  Previous #24 position was Reboot Test of Time
  Missed out on taking over Aggression by only 300 words.
Reboot Season Two #1, knocking Love Spell down to #2

As you can see from this and Love Spell's stats, Season Two reboots are quite long to be solo parters. Reboot Season Two is still new and so doesn't have an "average" solo size yet to compare to, these two and Resistance Isn't Futile were to be what I'd compare to. Unfortunately Interactions is up there with the multiple parters, so it's too big to help there. It will help with Season Two's lack of two parters though, a lot sooner than I expected. Typically the next episode was a long one in the olden days, apparently the second largest episode at the time of release, with only Thrown Key as a whole being longer, and yet stupidly still a 1 parter. So at least you know to expect a biggie next time.

As for The Love Spell, I don't see me converting that back to a two parter anytime soon. It really depends on how the season progresses.

"Interactions" is the fifth entry of 2018. Interactions was originally released in August 2001 seventeen years ago, after a month break. During that so called break the prequels were being developed. The episodes Parallax and Eye of Ramn had scenes written and certain characters arcs were planned out, which in turn affected Interactions itself. While the basic premise for Interactions was already decided, the plans effectively sparked the change to James' character for the rest of the series.

Other episodes released on the same date were Only In My Dreams and Chain Reaction Part 1, both from Season Three in 2002.
