180: Flip Your Ship

A Chakotay/B'Elanna Prequel.

Before finding peace at Janeway's side aboard Voyager, Chakotay was a self-described "angry warrior." A former Starfleet officer, he joined the Maquis to fight for his home planet against the Cardassians, and we unfortunately know little else. A recent listener email suggested that Char and Tristan write a pre-"Caretaker" story about the "angry warrior," so in this episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan do just that. They write an episode on the spot that starts with Chakotay telling a story to the senior staff during Ancestor's Eve, which takes us all back to Chakotay and B'Elanna's Maquis days. The story reveals several things, such as how Chakotay recruited B'Elanna into becoming his chief engineer about the Val Jean, but also a detail about Chakotay's life that few know. It shocked Janeway and it might shock you, so tune in and find out what it is.

179: Mic Whip

"Bride of Chaotica! Commentary.

One of the most incredible parts of the convention experience is the cosplay, whether putting a costume together yourself or simply admiring the craftiness of others. With Star Trek Las Vegas still on their brains, Char and Tristan thought it was finally time they tackled a commentary of "Bride of Chaotica!" That way, they could talk about some of the incredible cosplay they saw at STLV that was inspired by this episode, and discuss which character(s) from Captain Proton they'd choose if they were dressing up. And, in the midst of Captain Janeway burying herself in the part of Queen Arachnia, Char and Tristan could justify talking incessantly about Kate Mulgrew's prowess — not that they need a reason for that, but a convenient segue doesn't hurt. So queue up this Voyager fan favorite and listen as Char and Tristan talk about why they appreciate this episode so much.

178: Viva TTJ

Star Trek Las Vegas.

Every year around the first weekend in August, the Rio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas is taken over with people dressed in Starfleet uniforms from every era, as well as Andorians, Klingons, Tellariates....and even Fear?! Ohh my! Star Trek Las Vegas takes the honor of being the largest Star Trek convention in the world, and this year was even bigger thanks to the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the original series. In this episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan report live with guest Matt Hansen from The Nerd Party about the whirlwind time they had at Star Trek Las Vegas. They discuss what it was like when they met in person for the first time, the panels they attended, and the favorite things they experienced while at the convention. Even if you were at the convention yourself, this is an episode you don't want to miss!
