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 Kazon. 

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?
