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.
The last time I updated I said that it'd been ages since the last one. Well, that was three months ago. Oh well. There really isn't much to update the site with these days; the occasional batch of PDF versions of episodes and a Re-Read. Which btw I'm running out of. I haven't finished one in ages. I thought the next update I do will be dedicated to creating more of the archived bundles of PDF'd seasons.
# More episodes have been converted to PDF. Remember, if you have any specifc requests, feel free to get in touch via Facebook or Twitter.
# Season Two and B4FV Season Three has been added to the zip archives.
# "Only In My Dreams" has been added to "Marill Re-Reads Season Three".

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.
of the series Top 5:
(at least according to the Re-Reads so far)
Worse Case Scenario 2: Reboot | Original
2) Resistance: Reboot | Original
3) Man Out Of You
4) New Earth *Spoiler Alert*
5) The Voyager Conspiracy: Reboot | Original
The Coming of Time
James, Tom and Chakotay are taken back to the beginning of their day, over and over again.
Why do I recommend it
Since my "best of the month" recommendation is a time episode, I thought why not recommend another that's my second favourite of all the time episodes I've done. (The first is in the last season and too spoilery, so I talked myself out of it). I remember mapping out this entire episode to make sure that it worked, that it made sense. I enjoyed plotting it, I enjoyed writing it and I always like to read it. Inspired by the cancelled TV series Tru Calling, this episode is more of a timeloop episode than a travel one. It's also a murder mystery which are always fun. The trio I picked for this plot work well together (and I mean that in a FV-comedic sense haha), and so its not just a serious mystery with time stuff, it's fun too.
James walked in, he joined the others at the first biobed. "So, what's going on?"
"Do you remember going into the morgue and a body coming to life? And then the whole day happening again, and then the body coming back to life again?" Tom questioned.
"That's a poorly constructed sentence," Chakotay commented.
James raised an eyebrow, "after four and a half years of Fifth Voyager, you're just complaining now."

What will reading it now spoil?
Shouldn't be much, minor stuff like relationship status for some characters.
Best of the Month
As it implies, I recommend an episode I love/like released this month.
Morgan finds herself lost in the past before she joined the crew, only to discover her very presence there brings ruin to Voyager.
Why do I recommend it
In its early days, Precise Timings was a tester of things to come that I was planning for the entire series. Rebooting it after the series was done was a fun adventure of avoiding spoilers and retcons, but fun regardless. It's a time travel episode through and through, so if that's your thing, go nuts.
"What did you tell your mum to get her flying guns blazing into that anomaly?" Tani asked.
The pair heard an embarrassed little groan. "I didn't. James did. And I'm not proud of it, okay."
"Evasive maneuvers! Faster!" Kathryn screamed whilst gripping the armrests so hard her hands were white.
Tom squeaked, his head covered in sweat. "Okay."
They felt the ship swerve to the left. It wasn't far enough. A beam from one of the 8472 ships struck Voyager's belly, causing the ship to spin out of control.
"Shields down to 17%," Tuvok said calmly.
Kathryn firmly ground her teeth. Meanwhile the bridge was on fire, quickly filling with smoke. Harry hurriedly ran over to one to extinguish it.
"We mustn't give up. If anyone's going to use that coffee nebula, it's gonna be me," Kathryn grumbled. Chakotay stared at her accusingly. "Us." His face didn't change. "I meant wormhole. Keep firing."

What will reading it now spoil?
Pretty much just that the characters Morgan and Kiara exist, so "Timeline". Minor spoilers is knowing who Duncan and Bryan are.

Marill Re-Reads Only In My Dreams
Faye once again gets used by the bad guy cos she's clearly the Troi of the crew, James keeps on adding up, and the ending's pretty rough in a good/meant to be way for once.
NEXT TIME on Marill Re-Reads Season Three: We have fires, epic foreshadowing, betrayal, time travel, glorious returns for "glorious" villains, and plenty of other stuff. This one's got it all. I think Resistance and maybe even Worse Case 2 should watch their backs, here's the only one for a looong while that can challenge them. Bring...it...on! In the meantime feel free to cringe at older reviews.
Marill Re-Reads Season 3 || Two || One
# 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.

Fifth Voyager has been pretty quiet for years, but I gotta (re)start somewhere. If you want to chat or simply ask a question, report a problem with the site etc... These are the ways to do that.
