To The Journey 121: Be Informed

"Emanations" and "Half a Life" Comparison.

We often watch Star Trek because it makes us ponder heavy topics. Certain episodes drive us to consider how we feel about life after death and the treatment of our elders as they require more help from others. In this episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan discuss these themes as they compare Voyager's "Emanations" with TNG's "Half a Life." Each episode deals with ritual suicide from a slightly different angle. Listen on and find out what Char and Tristan think of these episodes, the messages contained therein, and whether they prefer one episode over the other.
