You're correct. I was thinking there was a gap and using that for dramatic effect.
My kids watch DS9 reruns. I look at parts of most of those shows now and wish I had the time back that I spent watching them the first time. I guess I strongly prefer the variety of story lines that a ship-based show provides. <shrug>
Voyager got away from that "Gilligan's Island" effect in its last few seasons. At one point, they seemed to accept that it would take 40 years to return to Earth and proceeded on their way. It only occasionally cropped up as a plot point when they would encounter some alien technology that would shorten the trip.
