youve just been yanked out of the Alpha Quad, the caretaker has just finished exploding. You ship is by necessity made up of the people youve been chasing all over Federation Space and you have a 70 year journey home. What would you do?

Myself.
My first order to the crew would be....."Build me a cloaking device. an old model one that can be modified for power effeciency and long term use. were not leaving any foot prints in this snow people"

id set out for the alpha quad much the same as janeway had done. Without all the sight seeing.
i dont think i would have blazed an idealistic trail across the quadrant leaving the federation philosophy behind me. Most aliens wouldnt have know i was there. I would trade only when i had to, with frequent reference to the ferengi bible ' the rules of aquisition'.
And i would have sadly left non aliagned worlds to their fates, as the prime directive dictates.
If that meant watching a civilization blowing itself up, or dying slowly from some terrible affliction.
i would and id raid the corpses for energy after the smoke cleared.

i would adhere to the Prime Directive to the Nth degree. were not interfering, were just passing through.

What would you have done???

Funny story, hang with me on this I promise it's relevant, night before last (I have two whitnesses and a couple screenshots) I accidentally busted through the map in Aokii on patrol with Frans 83 and Meh. as other may know them on here, and I have screenshots too mind you... ended up in a completely different system.

busting through part 1
Busting through 2
Where I came out.

On my screen my teammates were listed as 3,600 and in one case 24,000 KM away, they saw me as 100 or 300 away and when they came to where it said I was nothing was there, what's worse is it was obviously another system on my screen. Circumstances later led me back to Sol, story for another time.

Point is for the brief twenty minutes I was stuck in this almost totally empty system I started talking to the two guys on Skype about what the heck I was gunna do and the topic leads to Voyager.

I first off said I woulda said "Yeah forget this, sorry everyone we're using the array to go home right here and now and beaming tricobolts aboard rigged to go after we leave". Then came the real plan, thinking my in game situation was a cruel joke from Cryptic to pick like one ship and crew to get stuck in the Delta Quadrant if certain criteria were met, like spend so much on the ship and maiden voyager etc, considering Aokii is kinda close to the Badlands it had me going.

So I basically hatched the plan of just plotting a course home while trying to perfect transwarp tech, in my situation it already was but if it was "back in the day" it'd be priority one. I'd also willingly throw the Prime Directive out the window and trade federation tech with aliens, half a galaxy away I could care less what they do or if they blow themselves up... besides I don't see a wide range of races being able to adapt federation tech to their own. And really, where is the harm in sharing Replicators, really you're just helping in that case.

I'd make many more deals than Janeway was willing to and trade whatever (or whoever) I needed to, after all the needs of the many (my crew) outweigh the needs of the few (some random character). I'd also never drop from warp aside from enemy contact, to refuel, or to change course. Considering there was that whole Dominion War thing going on my duty would be to get home. I'd also try and make as many deals possible to acquire new weapons for my ship, really if I was stuck in an intrepid I'd want to be the most bad-A intrepid possible.

I'd also totally have left the Borg to be the play thing of 8472, they may not have hated humanity so bad if not for that little display of OMG Janeway put on by helping them. That cracked me up. She gives the Borg a WMD but wouldn't share potentially life-saving Replicator Tech to anyone.

So in short and in summary, I cheat my way back like a Russian Captain, complete with all due brutality. Also, Seven of Nine if she still managed to come aboard would have been crammed inside a Photon Casing and fired into the nearest Borg vessel with a note reading:
"Dear Collective, take it back we don't want it.

Love, Hugs and Kisses
- Voyager Crew and Jim"

I would blow up the array and the Kazon ships near it, I mean if I can spare tri cobalt devices (And WTFH does a starfleet vessel do with supsapce weapons anyway? They are banned in the federation) to blow up the array I can spare some for those Kazon.

Than I would start modifing my warheads to higher yeilds as that is possible and big guns are good guns.

Get a cloak one way or the other.

Say F off to everything save for: "There is coffee in that nebula"

So only stop for supplies and than move on

I wouldn't make neelix the chef btw I am a much better cook


Anyway I am on a 3 year journy with my own sim atm on a exploration mission without any support from starfleet so in a simelair scenrio atm, though a little more relaxed and better equiped

Agreed. So simple. But plot-wise, not so good.

Tri cobalts are predictable enough to be used safely, so aren't banned.

!) I would make I ahve an ample supply of coffee for a 70 yerar voyage, just in case.
2) I would let the Borg assimilate Neelix in exchange for a trip back home. I figure his uniqueness would drop their Collective IQ a few million points.
3) Sell any remaining coffee as "Delta Quadrant Blend"

Epic night. Epic, epic night.

I would press every species I ran across into forced labor and start my own Evil, Delta Quadrant Empire. I am Vigo after all.
