To The Journey 99: Dissonance and Decisions

Let's Write a Story!

Char and Tristan are both smart people capable of thinking creatively on the spot. The question is, how well? Find out in this episode of To The Journey, where Char and Tristan write an episode of Star Trek: Voyager together. With no preparation prior to recording, they develop a story from start to finish in their own "Voyager writer's room." Listen on and find out who starred in the a-plot, what happened in the story, and how it turned out.

We want to know which episode title — Char's "Dissonance" or Tristan's "Decisions" — you like better. Go to trek.fm/ttj and cast your vote for your favorite, or suggest a title of your own!

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.
