Re: Voyager went the wrong way home!

This should be in the FAQ.

Janeway would certainly have known that the wormhole wasn't in fact entirely stable, because in the very episode where it's discovered the Prophets briefly close it off. In any case, given all of the other phenomena Starfleet's encountered over the years, to simply assume that even an allegedly stable wormhole will still be there decades later is ridiculously foolhardy, especially given the consequences if it -isn't- there.

If the Bajoran wormhole had been, say, only a decade or so away, I might understand that decision.
