Something new!!!!

Hullo there, my fellow Trekkies! 

A few days ago, I came across a clip in one of several Facebook groups I'm in that celebrate Star Trek from The Simpsons. In it, Homer was lamenting the end of Voyager's original TV run. That got me wanting to see that ending again, so I watched a clip of that. Then I decided to watch the entire last episode of the series. On doing that, I was inspired to write a little vignette of what could have been happening in those final moments when we saw our intrepid ship and crew (no pun intended) headed toward Earth. What I came up with is linked below:

I kind of feel like the piece should be expanded, that I could use it to kind of rewrite the first chapters of the novel "Homecoming", since I didn't care much for the events in that book, nor do I much care for the direction the novel-verse since the end of DS9 and Voyager. Maybe I will one of these days...
