Well, we SORTA already have V'Ger in-game already (the Borg Command ships at the end of the Borg Sector Invasions; they look a lot like a certain part of the immense entity... plus their giant torpedoes look almost exactly like the energy bolts). And the latest Friday screenshot shows something that looks like the Nexus (but could also be a transwarp portal hub from the Destiny novels... nothing's been confirmed/denied yet).
Janeway is younger then Picard, and Picard is still alive: 104 years old in this timeline. McCoy was 137 when he visited the Enterprise D. Janeway's mother was still alive in 2378 - which is only 31 years before the game's era. People live longer in the Trek universe due to advances in medicine. There's no reason to believe that Janeway isn't still quite active.
Janeway must be dead (she would be VERY old)
and chakotay must still be in jail
But Vger is not so tough
send a ship back to before the launch of the original probe
and put in a deep core override
then when you see it in the present say "Command overide Life beats metal" and it explodes
um... sollvax, go and watch Voyager please . Chakotay wouldn't be in jail as they gave up the Maquis and were starfleet officers for seven years before they got home. SF wouldn't just have a party for Janeway and the crew and throw her loyal first officer in jail. As someone mentioned, Picard's still around. Janeway's a whole lot younger so unless Picard is an immortal entity Janeway's still alive. In the alternate future timeline of Endgame which is right around the time STO is set, Janeway's very much alive (and goes back in time... blah blah blah you can watch Endgame if you want to find out what happens). So... Janeway would not be VERY old, Picard is VERY old.

We are the Borg. Irrelevancy is irrelevant. ~ Cry OP, and let slip the devs of nerf!
If you say banana slowly, you can hear the word gullible in it. ~ There's no Q in Star Trek.
