The end of Endgame should have been Admiral Janeway learning the lesson about her crew that she did actually make in the actual episode, and then that should have been it. She could even still sacrifice herself to save them. None of this having their cake and eating it too bull.

Also this way, any scenes set in the future would actually be scenes from the future.
That would create temporal paradox, Captain Janeway would know about her future actions, so would have no need to eventually travel back in time, once she finally reached the Alpha quadrant and is promoted to Admiral.

But if she never traveled back in time, her past actions would never technically have happened.

Re: Would Voyager have been better if the ship returned to Earth soone

I've been watching Voyager recently and I've been thinking was Voyagers journey a bit to easy when it come to the delta quadrant and getting home. I know they met many bad races but I,d wished that the delta quadrant was a bit more darker and dangerous.

On the subject of voyager getting home sooner it would not of made any difference but I'd liked to of seen a episode after they returned and what paths they would of took .? janeway been admiral for example !!!

On the plus side, Voyager wrapping up as suddenly as it did meant we got Kirsten Beyer's fantastic novels several years later!

Re: Would Voyager have been better if the ship returned to Earth soone

I would rather have another season of Voyager than any novels.

Not that I felt ripped off or anything, like with ENT. Seven seasons is perfectly good.

Re: Would Voyager have been better if the ship returned to Earth soone

What about motion comics?

Hell, the Buffy motion comics of Buffy Season 8 where dawn turns into a centaur and falls in love with Xander have a completely original and dirt cheap voice cast.

The only problem is that there are not many Voyager comics and even less "good" Voyager comics to semianimate.

That's an great idea especially if they used it to step outside the Trek box.

Re: Would Voyager have been better if the ship returned to Earth soone

I would've liked to see Voyager return home at the end of Season 6 and then use Season 7 to explore the crew adjusting to life back in the Federation. That would provide a lot of opportunity to also explore the post-Dominion War landscape and maybe allow for some TNG and DS9 crossovers as well.

Perhaps a threat from the Delta Quadrant could've brought the crew back together for the series finale. There was the Voth, Species 8472, Vaadwaur, and of course the Borg. Voyager wasn't lacking in big adversaries.

Absent that, I wouldn't have minded if they never made it home during the course of the series, making the ship home instead.

Would DS9 have been better if the Dominon War ended sooner?

And then what? Chit chat with the Bajorans while waiting for the ink to dry on their Federation membership?

Dealing with a quadrant shattered by war, rebuilding the UFP and Cardassia, continuing the wartime alliance with the Romulans, venturing back into the GQ to explore.

DS9 had loads to do after the war, it really could have carried on either with Sisko remaining or Kira in command. Once Voyager got back home that's really it, the continued series would have to go off in numerous directions and nopt follow the strict everyone in one place format (kinda like the start of DS9 season 6, numerous storylines spread out all over the place).

That would really entail developing a whole new series though if you had the crew scattered and interacting with a whole new cast.

Moar Romulans. Generally. In any series. In fact, I want to see Star Trek: Romulans, the series. But not those stupid TNG Romulan costumes.

To the Romulan psyche a big boxy plaid uniform could be sexy.
