168: "Ghost Captain"

Episode Comparison.

It has been awhile since Char and Tristan have compared an episode of Voyager to another episode of a Trek series. In this episode of To The Journey, they are doing it in full force. Not only do they compare plot points of Voyager's "Coda" to The Next Generation's "Cause and Effect," but they throw TNG's "The Next Phase" into the mix as well. It is a three-for-two bargain that examines the intricacies of recurring time loops and discusses what officers should do if others mistake them for dead. We hope this will prevent listeners from entering distortions in the space-time continuum, blowing up their ships every day for 80 years and being none the wiser.

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 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.

To The Journey 105: Don't Forget the Orchid

"Tuvix" and "Similitude" Comparison.

There are times when an idea is so good that you can't use it just once...right? Intentionally or not, the Trek writers have used similar plots for episodes of different series. Case in point: Enterprise's "Similitude" and Voyager's "Tuvix." Both spawn controversy about one's right to live, even if it means sacrificing another. The captains — Janeway and Archer — face grueling decisions surrounding that debate. Each circumstance ends with the death of someone. In this episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan compare the similarities and differences between "Tuvix" and "Similitude" and determine if one episode executes the story better than the other.

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.
