To The Journey 106: Pyrokinesis

"Cold Fire" rewrite.

The time has come again when Char and Tristan pick an episode of Voyager and give it a little TLC. This time, it's Season Two's "Cold Fire," where Voyager encounters the Caretaker's mate, Susperia, and a group of Ocampans who have embraced and honed their telekinetic abilities. Let us not forget the bonus of Kes accidentally boiling Tuvok. Listen on and find out what Char and Tristan would have kept in, removed, and how they would have transformed "Cold Fire" into a less contrived story and a more compelling hour of television.

To The Journey 98: 99% Sexy Time

Remember Rewrite.

Episode quality varies greatly in Voyager's body of work, ranging from exceptional to downright pitiful. Most episodes fall somewhere in between these extremes, and they are the best candidates for a TTJ-style facelift.

In this episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan share their ideas for how they would bring more life to Voyager's "Remember," a Season-Three story where the romance of Romeo and Juliet collides with the genocide that occurred during World War II. We also briefly discuss Born With Teeth, Kate Mulgrew's memoir, which will be published in April 2015. The audio clip inserted in this episode is from TotallyKate.com.

To The Journey 89: Amnesia Love Story

Unforgettable Rewrite.

Chakotay-centric episodes rarely make fans' lists of favorites. Whether it's the writing, story, or the performance, they just don't stand out. For Char and Tristan, the ill-designated "Unforgettable" from Season Four tends to be just the opposite of what the title implies. In this episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan share their thoughts on how they would make "Unforgettable" a bit more indelible. Listen on and find out what they liked, what they didn't, and how they would bolster this episode so that it would live up to its title.

To The Journey 79: Neelix Lost his Shoes

Displaced Rewrite.

Not all Voyager episodes are winners. Some are downright ugly and others are forgettably mediocre. Season Three's "Displaced" fits the latter, and in this episode of To The Journey Charlynn and Tristan give this story a rewrite. Both agree that the episode needed better action sequences and more of them, but differ on who should save the ship. Did Char appreciate the rarely seen "Action Chakotay!" sequences and want more of them? Did Tristan find yet another way to bring the monkey from "Resolutions" into the mix? Listen on and find out what they would have done to improved "Displaced."

To The Journey 71: Have You Been Naughty?

Darkling Rewrite.

In this episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan rewrite Voyager's "Darkling" from Season Three. They agree that letting The Doctor "try on" new personalities is fun and describe how they would more effectively let Robert Picardo chew the scenery. They also discuss how they would rshape Kes' romance into a deeper and more meaningful B-plot.

To The Journey 64: Murder Cave

"Innocence" Rewrite.

Ever wonder what "could have been" with Season Two's "Innocence?" In this episode of To The Journey, Charlynn and Tristan delve deep into the episode's full potential as they rewrite and discuss kids who aren't really kids, mosquito nets as clothing, and what actually happened to Ensign Bennett.

To The Journey 56: Why We Have Fanfic

Resolutions Rewrite.

Thousands of Voyager fans have written Janeway/Chakotay fanfic to rework “Resolutions” to their liking. And in this episode of To The Journey, Tristan and Char join in. Tristan goes for the Harlequin romance angle, while Char doesn’t stop at just one episode and instead writes a three-part epic. Listen on and find out what exactly Tristan and Char had Janeway and Chakotay do in their idealized visions of “Resolutions.” And, of course, we speak at length about our favorite primate.

To The Journey 49: Bat’leth to the Face

Workforce Rewrite.

Don’t you hate it when Input Error 415 and Command Code Violation 2308 ruin your day at the office? So do we. And we’re going to do something about it. In this episode of To The Journey we rewrite of the lovely two-parter “Workforce.” We take the lukewarm show and try to inject some life into it. Tristan turns the work planet into a gulag, Charlynn squeezes some J/C love out of it, and Lorrie wants the Doctor to save the day. What would you do with “Workforce”?

To The Journey 41: Just His Gloves

The Fight Rewrite.

Sometimes after watching an episode, don't you just shake your head and think "I could've done better than that!"? So it is with “The Fight.” In this episode of To The Journey we all try our hands at either throwing out the whole thing and starting over, or keeping the least painful parts and turning it into hopefully something better. Char has Chakotay feel the love, Tristan has the man face his defective gene head-on, and Lorrie just throws in an homage to "Rocky." What would you have done with "The Fight"?

To The Journey 34: Space Alzheimer’s

Fury Rewrite.

Kes was a sweet, kindhearted, loving little sprite when she left Voyager—and then came the episode “Fury.” We couldn’t let our girl go out like that, so this week we each salvage or totally rewrite the agony we saw onscreen. Char decides Kes needs to go all Al Gore in Ocampa, Tristan hooks her up with “man unknown,” and Lorrie uses the “Bob Newhart” approach. What would you have done with the hot mess that was “Fury”?
