To The Journey 103: Lower Prixin

Merry Prixin!

Untangle the twinkle lights and hang some tinsel from the nacelles, it's that time of year where just about everyone is engaging in festivities of some sort. Since Char and Tristan are aboard the USS Voyager, naturally they are celebrating Prixin with Janeway, Chakotay, and  the crew. In this special installment of To The Journey, they discover what Prixin is really about.

To The Journey 102: I Need My Pain

Trek Through the Tough Times.

All of our lives are full of ups and downs. Though our minds gravitate towards looking back at the good times, the tougher times often equally affect who we become. In this episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan share how Voyager — and Star Trek in general — has been a constant and uplifting means of support through the more difficult periods in their lives, and how these experiences helped to shape the people they are today. Remember that when you are feeling down, Trek is always there to lend a positive presence.

To The Journey 100: Peppered Harry

Timeless Commentary. 

Throw some confetti because it's party time, To The Journey is 100 episodes old! Char and Tristan celebrate this milestone by breaking a bottle of champagne over the warp core and watching Voyager's 100th episode, "Timeless." Listen in as they ponder Robert Beltran's true hair color; Borg skeletal structure; Janeway and Chakotay's after-dinner "dessert"; who named Captain LaForge's ship, the Challenger; and so much more.

To The Journey 98: 99% Sexy Time

Remember Rewrite.

Episode quality varies greatly in Voyager's body of work, ranging from exceptional to downright pitiful. Most episodes fall somewhere in between these extremes, and they are the best candidates for a TTJ-style facelift.

In this episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan share their ideas for how they would bring more life to Voyager's "Remember," a Season-Three story where the romance of Romeo and Juliet collides with the genocide that occurred during World War II. We also briefly discuss Born With Teeth, Kate Mulgrew's memoir, which will be published in April 2015. The audio clip inserted in this episode is from TotallyKate.com.

To The Journey 97: Creepy Maternal Figure

The Borg Queen.

She is the beginning, the end, the one who is many. After she was unveiled in Star Trek: First Contact, it seemed inevitable that the Borg Queen would make an appearance on an episode, or several, of Voyager. And make an appearance she did. In this episode of To The Journey, Charlynn and Tristan dig beyond the Borg Queen's presence on Voyager and ponder her origin, discuss the elements that shaped the character, and speculate on how exactly one being controls a Collective of billions and keeps it all together.

To The Journey 96: Measure of a Hologram

Author, Author and The Measure of a Man Comparison.

With hundreds of hours of Trek under the writers' belts by the time Voyager arrived, it was no wonder that some stories brought about a feeling of deja vu. "Recycled plots" aren't necessarily a bad thing when they're given a new spin, and that's exactly what the writers did with Voyager's "Author, Author"—they took the insightful and compelling message from TNG's "The Measure of a Man" and gave it a holographic twist. In this episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan examine these two episodes' similarities, differences, and determine if one surpasses the other.

To The Journey 95: Tickle Your Ears with Magic

The Raven Commentary.

It's a bird! Check. It's a shuttlecraft! Check. It's a… Borg? Also check. When Seven of Nine find the wreckage of small science vessel she and her parents called home before being assimilated, she begins having hallucinations that seem to be calling her back to the Collective. "The Raven" began as the story of Seven's reactivation as a drone but became one that shed light on how she was assimilated in the first place.
 
In this episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan take you through the season-four episode as they discuss big black birds, eating lessons, and the difficult aliens-of-the-week who coveted Jake Sisko's vests so much that they adapted them into jumpsuits.

To The Journey 94: Kept the Panting

Trek Actors Directing Voyager. 

Most Trek actors gained their notoriety in pop culture from their roles on their respective series. However, for some, their involvement in Star Trek didn't end in front of the camera. Several Trek actors from TNG, DS9 and VOY went to "Trek Directing School," did their homework, and eventually made their directorial debut on a Star Trek TV series. For Jonathan Frakes, Robert Duncan McNeill, LeVar Burton, and Roxann Dawson, this experience paved the way for directing careers after Trek. In this episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan talk about the Trek actors who directed episodes of Voyager.
