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.

To The Journey 155: Holographic Sex on the Beach

Top Five Tom/Harry Moments.

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. On Voyager, Tom and Harry had the ultimate friendship. In this episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan reveal their top five moments between these two friends. Did your favorite Tom and Harry moments make their lists?

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.
