To The Journey 48: Sub Unit

Samantha and Naomi Wildman.

In this episode of To The Journey we continue our character analysis series with our favorite Katarian and her mom. Even though Naomi only had nineteen appearances, she made quite an impact on Voyager. She most definitely won the award for Least Annoying Kid on Star Trek. Tristan enjoyed the many versions of Naomi, Char cringed at her long gestation and horrifying birth, and Lorrie thought the writers just forgot about impregnating Samantha altogether. How do you feel about the pint-sized Captain’s assistant?

To The Journey 45: Kenneth Batman Schweitzer

The Doctor.

Some characters stand out more than others in the Trek universe; and Voyager’s Doctor is one of them. In this episode of To The Journey we discuss the reasons why he is so memorable, from his extensive development throughout Voyager's seven-year journey to Robert Picardo's distinctive performance. We also discuss the list of names Doc tried but ultimately dumped. Char’s favorite is Schweitzer, while Tristan thinks he should have chosen Batman. Which name would you have chosen for The Doctor?

Kes.

Our next character analysis takes us to the lovely underground home of the Ocampa and its gift to Voyager, Kes. In this episode of To The Journey as we explore the pixie’s life from her introduction in “Caretaker” to her departure in “The Gift.” All of us agree we love her spirit and taste for exploration, and that the writers of Voyager should have used her more often. Char loves her dishing out the snark to the Doctor, Tristan loves her backwards kangaroo maternity clothes, and Lorrie thinks her telekinetic powers should have been used to do cooler things that just melting Tuvok’s face. What did you like about Kes?

Neelix.

What’s the Delta Quadrant’s answer to Siri and Google Maps? Why Neelix, of course! The king of the leola root is not many a Star Trek fan’s favorite, but we all agree he was a necessity to the Voyager crew. In this episode of To The Journey we take a close look at Janeway’s Sacajawea. Lorrie likes his “ask forgiveness, not permission” attitude, Char liked him when he wore spaghetti, and Tristan just generally likes him. How do you feel about the “bar rodent”?

To The Journey 31: Jeri of Ryan

Seven of Nine.

Voyager’s resident Borg is next up on our continuing character analysis. Her introduction radically changed the landscape of the show, bringing the character into the spotlight time and time again. We discover that Char wanted Seven to go grunge, Lorrie enjoyed her “Borgness,” and Tristan still harbors a secret cardboard standup of her in a closet in his parent’s home. Were you able to resist or was it just futile?
