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.

Twenty years ago on the 4th December a wacky immature kid uploaded a brand new website onto Geocities, on it her first publically released Voyager fanfiction entitled Aggressions (Part 1). I never expected I'd even finish Part 2, but here I am 20 years later with eight completed seasons and 200+ episodes. The series has had its ups and downs but overall I'm proud of the work and time I've put into this "little" hobby I started all the way back in 2000.

# Season Three episodes have been edited

# Season One (both original and reboot) are now available in the Downloads page.

# A lot more episodes have been converted to PDF. Remember, if you have any specifc requests, feel free to get in touch via Facebook or Twitter.

# "Here & Now" has been added to "Marill Re-Reads Season Three".

Recommended Reads

Since the series is finished, with the exception of minor editing, new releases can't really be advertised anymore. Instead I recommend episodes I think are good and/or give any new visitors an idea on what the series is like.


Season One, Episodes 01: Aggression

Overall Synopsis
Voyager's in trouble once again as they enter Borg Space. However their main problem is sitting in the captain's chair.
Why do I recommend it
Originally released 20 years ago today, then rewritten and rereleased on the same date in 2012 to spark the series's revival, it's only fitting this is the one I recommend. Instead of at the very beginning with Caretaker, FV originally begins with Scorpion with quite a few "minor" changes like the tone, a few new characters, and for a nice change of pace, no Seven of Nine ass kissing.

If you're new here, this is the perfect place to start. Win, win.

"Ugh!" Kathryn groaned. She marched up to him, pointing a finger right in his face. "You, I don't know what I'm going to do with you. You just, ugh annoy me so much."

"Everything annoys you," James pointed out. "I'll tell you what, I'll go have a coffee in your honour. Will that help?"

All Kathryn could see was red, her hand doing the pointing twitched, her left eye did the same thing. Luckily for James the intercom noise sounded.

"Chakotay to Janeway."

Kathryn pulled the commbadge off her chest, while still staring at James. "Oh my god, WHAT!?" she screamed into it.

"Um, I was going to invite you to Engineering to see it, but I'll just tell you. We've entered Borg Space, bye. Chakotay out."

Best of the Month

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

Since it's December, I'm gonna just pick from the birthday episodes.

B4FV Season One, Episode 01: Caretaker

Episode Synopsis
The newly launched USS Voyager embarks on a mission to find a renegade ship, but soon finds itself involved in a bigger mission: to get home.
Why do I recommend it
The rebooted premiere episode of the prequel series, why wouldn't I? True this one was literally years in the making, a side project while Season Five and the Reboots were going on, but that doesn't mean it should be overlooked. I feel like this version of Caretaker is a lot of fun and with its story cut into 8 small parts, it has better pacing and so feels like a shorter read than Aggression despite it being... well, not.

"Captain, they're armed," he warned.

"No shi..." Kathryn hissed. Despite a phaser being more or less pointed at her, she marched over to the man holding it. The same man she had just spoken to on the screen. "I'd put that down unless you want it up your hint end."

"My what?" Chakotay was very puzzled.

Kathryn hesitated, her eyes glazing up, "hind, hint. Oh who cares." She ignored the Commander and focused on Tuvok standing behind him. "Good job, Tuvok. Wink," she said, then winked for real.

The three Marquis crew all looked around to glare at the Vulcan, who actually managed to look awkward. "Perhaps it would've been more tactical to announce my allegiance after the weapons had been lowered," he said.

"Tuvok!" Kathryn's eyes shot very wide open as she scolded him. "Shhh, he's right there."

Season Four, Episode 04: Dissidia

Episode Synopsis
The Enterprise crew's hopes of getting home lie in a nearby Game Cube. However the game itself appears to be stuck in an infinite loop, with no hope of breaking it. Meanwhile the trial continues.
Why do I recommend it
The series would never have been finished if it weren't for Dissidia and Reboot-Aggression. I had already failed at trying to revive the series years before, and so these two were a last chance. When I got stuck on Aggression, I decided to write the beginning of Dissidia. The rest is history, my mojo was back. It's ironic really that while Dissidia was the spark, it was left unfinished until the very last day before the big revival update. Aggression and many others had already been done, Dissidia was a last minute dash. Don't let that fool you though, I had so much fun with it.

Since its main story is inside a game, the story was "inspired" by a real life one with the same name (and its seq/prequel??) on the PSP. The banner shamelessly steals from it too. In theory it should've been doomed to fail since it was a strange setting, its fight scenes were to be so very different to what I was used to, the majority of the cast had amnesia so wouldn't really be "them", and yet...

Annika rubbed her Borg hand. Both hands went to her hips, then she leaned forward and shook her chest like she was taunting her. "We will add your distinctiveness to our own, sweetie."

Lena almost gagged at the sight. "What... is that your battle stance? Yeah, you weren't added to Voyager for fanservice," she said, the sarcasm dripping from her voice.

"Fight commence!"

"What? I requested this game be upgraded with realistic jiggle physics. You're just jealous," Annika taunted.

"No," Lena groaned. She swung both of the daggers in her hands. "I'm much cooler than that."

I wouldn't go into this without knowing at least about Season Three. Season Four special "End of the Line" might be needed.

Marill Re-Reads Here & Now

Things get weird, really weird.

Continue Reading

NEXT TIME on Marill Re-Reads Season Three: James finds out he has another piece of s*** past life, some stuff about a ghost getting revenge for her murder. I dunno, the last time I read this was probably 2002 after it was released. It's another song(lyric) title so I'm sure there's something about that in there too. In the meantime feel free to cringe at older reviews.

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.
