B'Elanna meets the inlaws, awkward moments ensue.

Janeway does 1000 hours of paperwork.

Harry and Libby embrace and then Harry goes home to his parents.

Chakotay is debriefed out the wazoo because he was Maquis.

Those homey stories on starships where you show them as real people outside of a crisis have their place but a season of them would be a huge let down.
I agree.
All of that would take 5 to 10mins tops, not a full 41 min. episode.

The scenery is all the same to me
Nothing has changed or faded
I'm a part of it, some part of me
Painted cool green, and shaded
So, try to find myself must be the only way
To feel free

This is just like 7 back on a Borg ship.

In an alternate reality where Rick Berman and not JJ Abrams rebooted Star Trek, Robert Duncan McNeil is James T. Kirk and that guy who played Vorik is Spock.

Thanks, much appreciated.
I've been promoted to Adm. on another board, so much of my focus has been there. Plus, I recently returned to college and making a change in careers. So, I've been preoccupied.

As Quark said: The more things change, the more they stay the same.

All of that takes up one episode, you can be more creative than that. Otherwise, Voyager is put back to work as a Federation starship, Starfleet tries to replace the doctor with an 'Organic', he has to fight anew for his rights as an individual, other EMHs get wind of this and demand rights of their own.

They obviously couldn't have had a TNG-style episode, but maybe other inicidences of Delta Quadrant life catching up to them? They are the Federation experts on the Borg, and the experts on any Delta Quadrant lifeform who happens to find a wormhole. They're the first ship that gets called for any marginally related issue to the Borg or Delta Quadrant species, this makes them consider retiring from Starfleet.

I think two or three episodes + a two parter finale after returning home wouldn't have run out of material.

Re: Stories you would have told in season seven

It would have sucked.

Big dull let down, audience would have been wishing they got tossed back into the Delta quadrant.

There would have been FAR too many touching scenes.

Re: Stories you would have told in season seven

"I'm glad you're home Captain, we'll begin taking Voyager apart immediately."

"I don't understand, I was going to sign up for a new mission, take my crew out again, with purpose, be heroic, we are Voyagers... Oh. Why are you taking about wrecking my home? No, you can't, you can't... Why did we even bother bringing her home if you just planned on killing her?"

"Your ship is a mess. It's held together by bailing wire and bad dreams. You might not have had a choice out there, but there is no way that a ship that fragile which has been through as much combat as Voyager and not seen a star base in the last 7 years could hold up to even a level C inspection, we're going to gut the engines seal up the phaser emmitters and repurpose the ship as a Museum in your honor."

"Screw that! Paris! Turn this ship around! We're going back to the Delta Quadrant!"

Re: Stories you would have told in season seven

I never get the romance of the individual ships. It's not like they won't give her another ship if she knocks back her promotion to Admiral. I mean sure, that was a nice ship and it was home but the next one will work much better and be home as well.

Re: Stories you would have told in season seven

Oh I'm in your camp totally.

I used to think that Crusher and Troi were mentally defective every time data would claim that he was a thing and an object, and they would laugh saying that he was the most human of them all.

Anthropomorphizing is for chumps.

The only bad thing about all of Firefly is Mal's stupid ship speech.
