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.

More episodes have been converted to PDF. If you have any specifc requests, feel free to get in touch via Facebook or Twitter.

"Fair Chance Part 1" has been added to "Marill Re-Reads Season Two".

B4FV Season Two, Episode 19: Sweet Sensation
Episode Synopsis
Voyager explores teaming up with one of their enemies to ensure survival, but thanks to a contaminated coffee supply that task becomes a little difficult.
Why do I recommend it
Originally the lowlight of its season, the reboot gave it another chance, a chance that I'll admit I spent too much time on which I don't regret one bit. It was a bit of fun on the side of writing Season Five, and there's not much else I can say about it, it's fun. I always enjoy giving it a little read through, if you want a short example of my daft sense of humour, this is it.

"But you... you're hideous on a whole different level. You're offensive to all seven of my senses," Damien continued.

Justin sniffled, "you couldn't go five minutes without being mean."

"No, why would I?" Damien rolled his eyes.

Chakotay hurried back into the room, his view of the FDA were blocked by too many crewmembers.

Tom stumbled over with a drink in his hands, "party on Chuckles."

"Oh good, you're not drunk yet," Chakotay said, confusing Tom.

What will reading it now spoil?
Just prequel stuff, and even then a lot of it are ongoing gags. The biggest spoiler I can think of is the mentions of the creature they have onboard, and even then I don't fancy linking to its origin episode (it sucks).

Best of the Month

As it implies, I recommend an episode I love/like released this month.

Season Two Special: The Resurrection

Episode Synopsis
An awayteam find themselves stranded in an ancient and abandoned desert city, where they quickly find they are not alone.
Why do I recommend it
While (re)writing this during my last holiday abroad, there were times I did not want to stop for a break, I really enjoyed writing it. It meant that I had so sooo much to type up when I got home, that the release took a while but it was worth it. It follows the original, adding to it while removing the problem scenes. What I've always liked about both versions is the villain's storyline and their backstory/lore. I can't recommend this one without mentioning its inspiration source The Mummy (1999), and mention that in both incarnations, Resurrection tried not to be a carbon copy.

"He's awoken the dead," Arden said, astonished and disgusted. He raised his weapon at the closest hand which had turned into an arm and head. "They are his servants. Do not hesitant, they are not the people they were."

One of the corpses grabbed Morgan by the ankle. She screamed and kicked wildly in front. Its head went flying down the chamber until it smashed into the wall. The hand still kept a good hold of her.

"No problem," Craig tried to say lightly.

What will reading it now spoil?
Ignoring the other links below for the moment, this should only spoil if you haven't been introduced to the new main cast. I can't think of anything major. The sequels on the otherhand, Oasis of Abatua is a big one to avoid if you're not caught up with Season Two. Scary But True's the Season Three cliffhanger/Season Four premiere, so it goes without saying.

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.

Random Trivia

# 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.
