The Void.  

With Voyager trapped inside a region of space absent of any matter, and under threat of siege by numerous alien vessels, Captain Janeway goes recruiting to form a mini-Federation alliance with the captains of some of the alien vessels, to pool their resources, to provide for their mutual protection, and to increase their collective chances of returning to normal space.  


In this episode of To The Journey, hosts Kay Shaw and Zachary Fruhling are joined by Trek.fm content manager Justin Oser as they spread the good news of Captain Janeway's budding alliance in their discussion of the seventh-season Voyager episode "The Void."

Voyager Controversies.

Introducing the new To The Journey with hosts Suzanne Williamson, Kay Shaw, and Zachary Fruhling! For their first assignment in the Delta Quadrant, Suzanne, Kay, and Zachary lay their Voyager cards on the table, sharing their thoughts on the things they love—and hate—about Voyager. From the status of crew relationships such as Janeway/Chakotay and Neelix/Kes, to their thoughts on controversial episodes such as "Fair Haven" and "Threshold," Suzanne, Kay, and Zachary take the bridge in search of coffee nebulae and leola root stew!

183: It's a G Thing

Create a New Character.

With all the untapped potential Voyager had, it's not much of a surprise that "what if" speculations are a regular component of To The Journey. And guess what — this week is yet another scenario where Char and Tristan let their imaginations do the talking. This week, they add a member to the crew, describe his or her role on the ship, and explain how this character integrates with the other regulars. And before you ask, no, this isn't a "replace Seven of Nine with another character" discussion; in fact, that was already done on TTJ 135! This character is someone new who isn't replacing anybody.

But wait — aren't there plenty of people already in this large ensemble cast? Yes. Is there really a void another character could fill? Absolutely, yes. Listen and find out how Char and Tristan made their scenarios work.

174: Grand Theft Starship

Writing TNG's "The Game" into Voyager.

Addiction is a powerful and potentially destructive thing. We saw just how quickly the cycle can start (and spread) in The Next Generation's "The Game," where a seemingly innocent game from Risa turned into a mind control ploy as a way of taking over the Enterprise. In this episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan take the story from "The Game" and rewrite it into the Voyager paradigm. Without a Starfleet Academy cadet and a young Ashley Judd aboard, who will save the ship? Tune in and find out.

To The Journey 51: Coping Mechanism

Dealing with the end of Voyager.

How do you cope with the loss of a great show? In this episode of To The Journey Char and Tristan answer that very question in this week’s episode. Voyager ended with what some might call a “fizzle” as opposed to a “bang.” So where do you go from there? Marathons? Novels? Comics? Audiobooks? Fanfic? Garage reenactments where nothing weird is going to happen? Listen and find out.

To The Journey 30: Deal with the Devil

Janeway’s Treatment of the Prime Directive.

Throughout Voyager’s run, our intrepid captain often faced criticism for behavior which seemed to violate Starfleet General Order 1. In this week’s episode of To The Journey we discuss our varied opinions about Captain Janeway’s decisions. Was she an altruistic savior of the Delta Quadrant or a selfish, stubborn interloper?

To The Journey 28: The Toby of the Delta Quadrant

Harry Kim.

He’s Voyager’s forever green ensign, frequent victim of misfortune, and the topic for this episode of To The Journey. Charlynn, Tristan, and Lorrie delve into the man, the mystery, the enigma that is our Ops officer. From his constant brushes with death, to his ill-fated captaincy and his troubled romantic life, we talk about what we love and find endearing about this character. Do you think Harry deserved another pip on his collar?

The hairstyle-challenged thieves of the Delta Quadrant are on deck for this episode of To The Journey. Were these former slaves of the Trabe really the villains the Voyager producers meant them to be, or were they just misunderstood? Charlynn, Tristan, and Lorrie discuss the culture, failings, and what-ifs of the Kazon. Were they worthy of their LA street gang origins, or were they just salon accidents?

To The Journey 26: Lego Borg Queen

Those Bad Guys.

They’re the characters we can’t live with, and can’t live without. In this episode of To The Journey Tristan, Charlynn, and Lorrie have a three-round discussion of the characters we love to hate. Our list takes us from “Caretaker” all the way to “Endgame” with plenty of stops in between. We learn that Lorrie finds “Unforgettable“‘s Kellin quite forgettable, Char wishes Seska would’ve chosen better frenemies, and Tristan finds Red, I mean Annorax, a compelling creep. Who did you love to hate?

To The Journey 25: Icheb Is Dead

What if Voyager never got home?

At some point, every Voyager fan has wondered what would have happened if the crew hadn’t gotten home in “Endgame.” In this episode of To The Journey Tristan and Char discuss what might have been had the final installment of the series played out differently—whether that meant returning to Earth several decades later, settling on a planet in the Delta Quadrant, or going out in a blaze of glory. One thing’s for sure in all of these scenarios: In Tristan’s universe, Icheb is dead.

Strong Character Episodes.

Voyager often gets pooh-poohed for poor character development. This week we prove that completely wrong. In this episode of To The Journey, Tristan, Charlynn, and Lorrie discuss episodes that showcase the development of various characters on Voyager. Each choice reflects a facet of the characters, from “Faces” to “One.” We learn that Char loves sad clown Neelix, Lorrie extols Harry’s Jean Valjean martyr side, and Tristan, well he just gives Tuvok some love.

To The Journey 23: Talking Tommy

Thomas Eugene Paris.

It’s never easy being the son of an Admiral. Expectations run high and the pressure can get to even the best of us. In this episode of To The Journey, Char, Tristan, and Lorrie talk about Tommy-boy and the character arc that made him wonderful to watch. From playboy to daddy, the growth of his character made him one of the most realistic crew members on Voyager.

Shattered Commentary.

With Tristan in Sickbay, Char and Lorrie talk about the Voyager “clip episode” that wasn’t: “Shattered.” We look at the missed opportunities in a seven-year retrospective—such as Seska’s possible romantic re-entanglement with Chakotay or Chakotay’s choice to not violate the Temporal Prime Directive and tell Kathryn about the ship’s future.

To The Journey 21: No Answers. Just Questions.

Photonic Lifeforms.

TNG had Moriarty. DS9 had Vic Fontaine. But Voyager... had the motherload. From the EMH to Michael Sullivan, were these characters real or were they just lights and computer programs? In this episode of To The Journey, Lorrie, Charlynn, and Tristan go in deep to tackle the topic of photonic life; but instead of answering the question they may just create a few more.

To The Journey 19: Female Bad Person

The Voyager Movie.

The Original Series had its movies, and TNG was followed by some great features of its own. Loyal fans of Voyager demand equal treatment! We don’t require much—maybe a movie that deals with snippets from each of the post-Voyager novels and rewrites “Endgame”? Perhaps a sci-fi thriller pitting the Voyager crew against an unstoppable villan? Or simply a trip back to the Mirror Universe of “Living Witness” bringing the evil Voyager head-to-head with Prime Uni Voyager? In this episode of To The Journey, Charlynn, Lorrie, and Tristan share their ideas for the perfect Voyager movie. What are yours?

 

NOTE: This episode contains MASSIVE SPOILERS for the Voyager relaunch novel series.

To The Journey 18: Daddy Issues

B’Elanna Torres.

This week we show our love for B’Elanna Torres in our in-depth character analysis. From Maquis rebel to Starfleet darling, B’Elanna was a rich and well-developed part of the Voyager crew. We all agreed that she was one of our favorites. So, Qa’Pla and listen to us sing her praises.

To The Journey 17: Dismissed!

Badass Janeway.

Sisko was a yeller, Picard gave flowery speeches, and Kirk was uber dramatic. And Janeway, our intrepid leader? She ran the gamut from almost inappropriate banter to just plain “dress-you-down” guilt. In this episode of To The Journey, Tristan, Charlynn, and Lorrie discuss the one-liners and eloquence that make Janeway so memorable. We know you have your favorites, so give ours a listen. In her own words, “Do it!”.

To The Journey 16: Catfights and Catsuits

Kes vs Seven.

Kes, the sweet little innocent pixie, and Seven of Nine, the Borg who took her place. In this episode of To The Journey, Tristan, Charlynn, and Lorrie talk about the feels they had when Kes left and the “development” that occurred when Seven was added to the Voyager cast. Should Kes have stayed? Well, we know that Tristan’s cardboard cut-outs of Kes and Seven got along, so perhaps it would have worked. But, only if cut-out B’Elanna was there to break up the fight.

To The Journey 15: Save Him for a Rainy Day

Romance on the Love Boat in Space.

Valentine’s Day is in the air, and everyone’s fancy turns to love. Or, at least, to “like.” In our romance-filled episode, we discuss the pairings we adored, the couples that Cupid should’ve ignored, and the alien-crew twosomes we wanted to see continue. Char spills her adulation for Jaffen, Lorrie purrs for Kashyk, and Tristan again stuns us with his fervent allegiance to Michael Sullivan. Happy Valentine’s Day!

To The Journey 14: Guilty Pleasures

Episodes we for some reason love.

We all enjoy things that are bad for us. Things like cheeseburgers, soda, and Lady Gaga. Every single Star Trek series has it’s bad episodes—and Voyager is no exception. Charlynn and Tristan discuss the episodes that they love but can’t defend. These episodes get the hatred and eye rolls they deserve but that will never stop the To the Journey crew from loving them to death. Listen in as Char and Tristan list their top three guilty pleasure episodes.

To The Journey 13: My Son the Amoeba

Q2.

Sometimes an episode just doesn’t live up to its potential. In this week’s episode of To The Journey, Lorrie, Charlynn, and Tristan take a look at the episode “Q2” and delve into its good and bad points. We also discuss what we would do if the show had been ours to create: Q Sr. has a midlife crisis, Q Jr. confronts his role as the savior of the Continuum, and Junior takes Aunt Kathy on her own Tapestry ride when we let our imaginations run wild. In related news, Tristan confesses that in his next life he wants to write fan fiction.

Tuvok.

Moving down the line we tackle another in-depth character analysis, setting our sights this time on Tuvok. In this week’s episode of To The Journey, Lorrie, Charlynn, and Tristan discuss Voyager’s resident Vulcan and discover that, although he was not true to character to begin with, he quickly grew into an integral part of the crew. Tuvok became a Maquis spy, a mentor, a moral compass, and a mutiny writer. And as we find out, Tristan likes him equally as well as he likes B’Elanna… although that remains to be seen.

To The Journey 11: Neelix Handles Your Underwear

Non-renewable Resources.

One of the many issues facing Voyager was the replacement of needed items without the luxury of going to a Starbase. In this week’s episode of To The Journey, Charlynn, Tristan, and Lorrie discuss replicator rations, leola root, and the on-again off-again difficulty of finding deuterium. Neelix’s new job as laundress is revealed, as well as Tristan’s need to see corn growing in the aeroponics bay.

To The Journey 10: Hot Mess

Threshold.

Like a Janeway hairstyle change or a Harry Kim near-death experience, some things are inevitable. So it is with Voyager discussion and Brannon Braga’s hot mess called “Threshold.” Yes, we had to tackle the episode everyone loves to hate sooner or later—and there’s no time like the present. In this episode of To The Journey hosts Tristan Riddell, Charlynn Schmiedt, and Lorrie Sears mix together Robert Duncan McNeill’s performance, great character moments by the doctor, and the genius that is Neelix. With all these ingredients, who needs lizard babies?

You love him or you hate him, but it’s hard to feel lukewarm. Everybody has an opinion on the XO of the Voyager, and Tristan, Lorrie, and Char are no different.

Alpha-Quadrant Aliens in the Delta Quadrant.

Underrated Voyager Episodes.

Sometimes, an episode just doesn’t get the love it deserves. This week, Tristan and Char tackle this problem and discuss three of their favorite underrated episodes, while also taking on Lorrie’s choices as well, since she was stuck in sickbay. We learn that Tristan is a sucker for character stories, Lorrie likes the episode where Janeway shoots germ-creatures with her big bulging biceps, and Char’s favorite part of “Tattoo” is where we see Chakotay’s bare behind. Oh, and the monkey is discussed as well.

Children on Voyager.

It was brought up early in the series that having children aboard Voyager may be necessary if it really did take 70 years to get home. For a ship ill-equipped to raise children, this was a challenge that Janeway and Co. had to face with the arrival of Naomi Wildman. Later on, we got the Borg kids and the birth of Miral in the series finale. Tristan, Char, and Lorrie discuss children aboard Voyager, whether we should have seen or heard about more kids being born on the ship, and sexy onscreen Q mating.

Holodeck Programs.

They’ve been around since TNG, but Voyager arguably used them the most. When the crew needed some R&R from the daily rigors of life in the Delta Quadrant, we saw them hanging out in Sandrine’s, the tropical resort program, Fair Haven, and more. Tristan, Lorrie, and Char discuss all of these popular hangouts, and we learn that Tristan would buy a Flotter doll if he could.

Captain Janeway.

Whether it was negotiating with Romulans in the middle of the night or putting Kazon bullies in their place, Captain Janeway did it all with her “compassionate badass” command style. In this week’s episode of To The Journey, hosts Charlynn Schmiedt, Tristan Riddell, and Lorrie Sears talk in-depth about Voyager’s captain, including first impressions of Kathryn Janeway, Jeri Taylor’s novel Mosaic, and favorite Janeway moments. And, of course, we talk about Captain Janeway’s addiction to coffee.

The Maquis.

When the Caretaker’s array forced together Starfleet and Maquis crews, the potential for conflict was established in a way not really tested before in Star Trek. And while the first few episodes explored the tense relationship aboard the close quarters of a small Intrepid Class ship, the dramatic promise was quickly lost on the writers. In this week’s episode of To The Journey, hosts Charlynn Schmiedt, Tristan Riddell, and Lorrie Sears explore the Maquis, including the build-up and the declawing, the need for continuity when exploring this concept, and how the relationship between Chakotay and Janeway influenced the course of Maquis-Starfleet relations. Plus we find out what Tristan would do if he had a monkey.
