Story #3 in the “More Than a Lifetime” series.
This story is the third in a series of stories that do not follow canon and should not be taken as such. The first story is “Delta Wild”, the second is “Homecoming.” The events in these stories occur in an alternate universe in which Chakotay’s stint with the Maquis happened much earlier in his life. He is married to Kathryn Janeway, and they have a daughter. In this universe, Voyager did not combine with a crew from a Maquis ship, but instead reached the Delta Quadrant with a small loss of life and most of her crew in tact. The events of “First Contact” and “Insurrection” have already occurred in this timeline, but “Nemesis” has not.
