To The Journey 150: Strength, Passion, and Vulnerability

Vaughn Armstrong.

He's a man who has played several roles in Trek, from a Klingon in TNG to a semi-regular character on Enterprise, and several other roles in between. You could say he is everywhere in Trek. No, we're not talking about Jeffrey Combs, but we are talking about a man who belongs to an elite club of actors that have played seven or more different characters throughout the Star Trek franchise (Jeffrey Combs, J.G. Hertzler, Randy Oglesby, and Thomas Kopache are the others).

In this special 150th episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan talk with Vaughn Armstrong about his long-lived acting career; how he achieved and maintains his success; some of his favorite memories from working on the Trek shows; The Enterprise Blues Band; and much more.

To The Journey 149: Warnog

Prixin 2015.

First Ancestor's Eve...and now Prixin? How the time does fly! The holiday season is upon us and Char and Tristan have been busy setting up for Voyager's celebration of Prixin. This year's festivities are happening in Engineering, and that's not boding well for Tristan, who's having some...er, difficulty, with his supervisor. Meanwhile, Char is not fond of Neelix's "better than eggnog substitute." She's also in charge of the mistletoe. Put on your favorite "ugly sweater" and join in the fun as we celebrate Prixin once again in this special holiday edition of To The Journey.

To The Journey 148: Holograms Run Amok

Season Four Essential Voyager

Here they go again, Char and Tristan are back with Essential Voyager! This time, they tackle Season Four and examine each episode for essential-worthy status. If the episode has meaning to Voyager's mission home or contains essential character moments, it remains in the timeline. Otherwise, it's chucked from the season faster than Janeway can say "TIIIIME'S UP!" Which episodes from the fourth season prevail and which ones lose their safety net, so to speak? You'll have to tune in to this episode of To The Journey and find out.

To The Journey 147: Dreaming of Neil Armstrong

"11:59" Commentary.

For many the holiday season is a time filled with food, festivities, and family. It is also a time for reflection — to remember those before us, what has happened in the past year, and look to the future as we approach a new year. In this episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan wax sentimental as they deliver a commentary on the Voyager Season Five episode "11:59." They reflect on their own ancestors, as well as the Janeway lineage; how Q could have made this episode better; how sometimes you can't help but live the rest of your life in the place where your car breaks down; and much more. Happy Ancestor's Eve, everyone!

To The Journey 146: Black Lace Nightie

Voyager's Mirror Universe, Part Three.

One of the most original things Char and Tristan have created on To The Journey is a vision of what Voyager might look like in the Mirror Universe. In previous episodes, they established how the ISS Intrepid got lost in the Delta Quadrant, gave backstory to the characters, and rewrote "The 37s" in Mirror Universe style. Now they're at it again, and in this episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan write a story on the spot that takes place in their Mirror Universe. That's right — with no prior planning, they create a story from start to finish on the podcast. Tune in and find out what's happening in the latest installment of the Mirror Universe saga.

To The Journey 145: Mr. Vulcan

Top Five Tuvok and Neelix Moments.

Like Quark and Odo on Deep Space Nine, Neelix and Tuvok are the resident odd couple on Voyager. By their very nature, they are a juxtaposition. Tuvok is disciplined and orderly, whereas Neelix will improvise and work his way through things as he goes. Tuvok is a master at controlling his emotions, while Neelix expresses his emotions with exuberance. When it comes to soup, Tuvok prefers his plomeek bland but Neelix must have some spice. Despite these vast differences, at the heart of their friendship is trust and respect. In this episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan break down their top five moments between Tuvok and Neelix.

To The Journey 144: Darmok 101

"Nemesis" Rewrite.

Chakotay-centric episodes are typically not highly-rated among the Star Trek fanbase. Most of them leave a lot to be desired, but "Nemesis" might be an exception. The episode explores what war does to the mind, and may have greater significance in our post-9/11 culture than it did when it first aired in 1997. In this episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan take another look at what they thought was a mediocre episode. However, they realized they were both wrong but amped it up in their rewrites anyway. Listen on and find out how they would improve one of Season Four's most underrated and overlooked episodes.

To The Journey 143: A Stenographer's Dream

Episode Comparison.

Would you believe Will Riker if he said he wasn't putting the moves on a woman? What about former inmate Tom Paris if he claimed he didn't murder someone, but the victim's memories show otherwise? If you said "no," watch TNG's "A Matter of Perspective" and Voyager's "Ex Post Facto." Each episode uses the reputations of the story's main characters, Riker and Paris, against them. It is up to science and cold, hard facts (respectively) to prove their innocence. In this episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan put on their detective hats and scrutinize Voyager's "Ex Post Facto" with TNG's "A Matter of Perspective." Does one mystery stand up better than the other? Examine the evidence and find out.

To The Journey 142: Bromance Forever

Essential Voyager, Season Three.

The time has come again for Essential Voyager! This time, the victim...er, subject, is Season Three. Char and Tristan review each episode and determine if it's necessary viewing or if it's better off being destroyed by sweaty Janeway and her phaser rifle. It is a season that arguably has the greatest ups and downs in terms of story quality. Does that make Char and Tristan's lives easier or more difficult when determining if an episode is essential to the Voyager story as a whole? Listen on and find out if their choices surprise you.

To The Journey 141: You're Both Jerks!

Top Five Favorite Moments from Season Six.

You know Char and Tristan love their top five lists. You know that they also love their multi-part series, dissected season by season. In this episode of To The Journey, they do both! Char and Tristan looked through everything in Voyager's sixth season, exploring all the nooks and crannies, and made a list of their top five moments. In a season with serious standouts such as "Tinker, Tenor, Doctor, Spy," it's not a matter of if an episode made their lists, but which moment. Just how predictable were Char and Tristan with their picks, anyway? Did something from "Fair Haven" make Tristan's list? How many Janeway/Chakotay moments did Char put on hers? The results may (or may not) surprise you. Tune in and find out.
