Top Harry Kim Moments.  

When stranded in the Delta Quadrant it's important to have a spirit of youthful optimism. In Star Trek: Voyager, this youthful optimism is provided by none other than Ensign Harry Kim. Brimming with excitement for his first deep space assignment, Ensign Kim is practically the poster figure for the ideal Starfleet officer. But along Voyager's sever-year journey home, we see Ensign Kim learn to stand up for himself and even break a rule or two from time to time. And while Ensign Kim doesn't often get to be in the limelight, he does get to take the center seat (well, on the night shift at least, twice a week). In this episode of To The Journey, hosts Suzanne Williamson and Zachary Fruhling compare their picks for the top Harry Kim moments in Star Trek: Voyager.

Seasons five through seven of Star Trek: Voyager are known for their many memorable episodes featuring the great on-screen chemistry and friendship of Robert Picardo and Jeri Ryan as The Doctor and Seven of Nine, so much so that one might naturally think that seasons five through seven are really just the Doctor/Seven show!

Favorite Tom Paris / EMH Moments. 

Tom Paris and The Doctor may have been an unlikely comedic duo, but over seven seasons, both in and out of sickbay, they somehow became Voyager's Odd Couple. The relationship between Tom and The Doctor, however, runs deeper than mere comedy. Beneath all of the friendly banter, and the mostly friendly ribbing, lies genuine friendship, mutual respect, and lessons in life and humanity for both Tom and The Doctor.

In this episode of To The Journey, hosts Suzanne Williamson, Zachary Fruhling, and Kay Shaw share their favorite character moments between Voyager's irrepressible helmsman and its acerbic but compassionate Mark I Emergency Medical Hologram.

Favorite Kes/Tuvok Moments. 

Considering that Kes and Tuvok are perhaps the calmest, coolest, and most collected characters in Star Trek: Voyager, the moments they share together onscreen are remarkably volatile and intense! But despite this intensity, their friendship and working relationship are characterized by sincere trust, mutual respect, and admiration. Tuvok frequently serves as a mentor for Kes, guiding her as she explores and develops her unique mental abilities. And Kes, in turn, helps Tuvok balance his logic, his emotions, and his relationships with the rest of the Voyager crew. In this episode of To The Journey, hosts Zachary Fruhling, Suzanne Williamson, and Kay Shaw peer beyond the subatomic to share their favorite Kes/Tuvok moments in Star Trek: Voyager

Favorite Captain Janeway / Seven of Nine Moments. 

Kate Mulgrew and Jeri Ryan shared a lot of of screen time as Captain Janeway and Seven of Nine in seasons 4 through 7 of Star Trek: Voyager. Most of these moments, however, seem to fall into one of three categories: (1) Seven of Nine learns something about humanity from Captain Janeway, (2) Captain Janeway and Seven share a heartfelt bonding moment, and (3) Seven of Nine gets under Captain Janeway's skin.

Robert Beltran and Roxann Dawson may not have had much one-on-one screen time together as Cmdr. Chakotay and Lt. B'Elanna Torres.

171: The One Where B'Elanna Goes to Hell

Episodes that Exceeded Their Potential.

Have you ever cringed at those one-sentence episode summaries on Memory Alpha or Netflix? You are not alone. Sometimes they break down the plot so simplistically that the summary makes the episode sound boring, cliche, or downright bad. Sometimes they barely describe the plot at all. The lesson to be learned here is that one should not judge an episode based on these descriptions.

In this episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan take that lesson to heart and list their top five episodes that exceed their potential. On paper, the plots of these episodes might not sound enticing, but they shined on screen. Some that made the list are fan favorites. Others are highly overlooked. All of them excelled as episodes of Voyager.

165: Intuition

Top five Janeway/Seven Moments.

One of the most complicated relationships on Voyager was the constant struggle between Captain Janeway and Seven of Nine. Janeway, always in need of a reform project, almost bit off more than she could chew with the former Borg drone who struggled with her separation from the collective and forming an individual identity. The process put the two constantly at odds and was a heavy point of focus in the last half of Voyager's run. In this episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan list their five favorite moments between the two characters, ranging from tough times to simple moments of friendship.

Bromance is a beautiful thing. The Original Series had Kirk and Spock. TNG had Data and Geordi. On Deep Space Nine, it was all about Miles and Julian.

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 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.

To The Journey 138: George Clooney Found His Janeway

Top Five Out-of-Character Moments.

Whether it's due to a temporal rift or an alien virus, one of the most common ways that we as a Star Trek audience know that something isn't right is by making a character say or do something they normally would not. Our heroes sift through clues that help them determine what is going on so they can make things right...usually. There are times that these out-of character moments aren't as intentional but make it to the screen nevertheless. Sometimes it's a small glitch from a new writer or director who doesn't fully know a character. Other times, it's a glaring mistake that stems from sloppy and inconsistent writing. Whatever the reason, it's frustrating to the viewer. In this episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan break down their top five out-of-character moments on Voyager, ​from microwormhole-sized gripes to macroviral errors.

To The Journey 131: Army of Evil

Top Five Season Five Moments.

Like Voyager's fourth season, the fifth season was solid throughout. Standouts such as "Bride of Chaotica!," "Night," "Counterpoint," "Timeless," and several others really made this year of Voyager's journey home shine. In this episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan slip into their Captain Proton cosplay and take on the painstaking task of choosing their top five moments from Season Five. With so many excellent moments to choose from, some were inevitably left out. Listen on and find out if your favorites made their lists.

To The Journey 129: Alien Love

Top Five Tom/B'Elanna Moments.

Some couples were simply meant to be. That was the case for Tom and B'Elanna on Voyager, where a series of innocent flirtations eventually blossomed into a beautiful marriage that eventually included a child. It was one of the few couplings in Star Trek that was built to last and portrayed with realism. From hot 'n steamy romance to standing by their commitment to one another, Tom and B'Elanna had several relationship moments that fans enjoy. In this episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan pare their favorite Paris/Torres moments down to just five and discuss them.

To The Journey 120: After Dessert

Top Five Janeway/Chakotay Moments. 

Behind a top-notch captain is always a top-notch first officer. Kirk and Spock shared a deep and intricate friendship that went far beyond duty. Picard and Riker always knew they could count on each other. Sisko and Kira used the differences in their points of view to see the bigger picture together and make well-rounded decisions. And Janeway had Chakotay, who was not just her first officer, but the person she eventually trusted most on the ship, developed a deep friendship with...and possibly more? The Voyager writers toyed with the idea of a Janeway/Chakotay romance when fans vocally took note of Mulgrew and Beltran's onscreen chemistry. Though the writers didn't fully go through with the idea, they gave the "J/Cers" moments that launched thousands of fanfics. In this episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan list their top five Janeway/Chakotay relationshipper moments and try not to squee too much in the process.

To The Journey 116: This Man's My Friend

Top Five Season Three Moments.

Season Three of Voyager was filled to the brim with notable moments. A second appearance by Q, the solidification of Tom and Harry's bromance, The Doctor's holofamily, and eyebrow-raising dialogue between Kathy and Coco were just a few of the highlights of Voyager's third year. So, what's the cream of the crop? In this episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan catalog their top five moments from Voyager's third season. Listen on and find out if one of your favorites made the cut.

To The Journey 92: BA XO

Most Memorable One-Liners.

One thing all Star Trek fans can agree on is that each show has its fair share of brilliant one-liners. Whether it's profound words coming from Spock or a snarky retort from The Doctor, every series has a variety of notable quotes. In this episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan divulge just a few of the Voyager one-liners they consider the most enduring. In the interest of keeping the podcast at its usual length, they stopped at five apiece, but could have easily traded examples of the witty remarks all day.

To the Journey 87: Timmy Likes Phasers

Introducing Kids to Voyager.

When asking fellow fans how long they've been watching Star Trek, "I've been watching it since I was a kid" is a common response. Many of us became cognizant of Star Trek when we were quite young. The franchise means a great deal to us as we grew up with it. Now those of us with children are introducing Star Trek to our kids, in hopes of propagating the next generation of Star Trek fans. 

In this episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan take a suggestion from a listener and name the top five episodes of Voyager they would show to a young child, in hopes that they would be intrigued and entertained but not be subjected to content that would push the rating above PG.
