160: Bartering with the Irish

Season Six Essential Voyager.

Popular opinion among Voyager fans states that the show hit its peak in seasons four and five. If that is true, then where do the last two seasons stand in comparison to Voyager's heyday? In an effort to answer that question in this episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan return to their Essential Voyager series. They examine each episode for its importance to the characters, Voyager's journey home, the series as a whole, and condense the season down to mandatory viewing. Listen and find out if Season Six measures up to totals from previous seasons, or if it falls short of expectations...much like a malfunctioning holographic boyfriend.

To The Journey 159: Conversation is Irrelevant

TTJ AMA 2.

Char and Tristan know that listeners love it when they get a little personal. Some of the most popular episodes of To The Journey do just that, and it's the same reason why they did a Reddit-style "Ask Me Anything" in TTJ 137. That episode received so much of a response that Char and Tristan decided to open the floodgates once again and solicit questions from Twitter, The Babel Conference, and via email. In this episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan answer questions from listeners about art, their thoughts on the X-Files revival, who they would not want to be alone with in the Delta Flyer, and so much more. Many thanks to everyone who sent in questions!

To The Journey 158: Broken Delta Flyer

Five-episode Janeway Marathon.

Longtime To The Journey listeners know that Char and Tristan love marathoning Voyager on a lazy Sunday afternoon. They have created marathons for all seven seasons in episodes past. Now they are tackling character-centric marathons. In this episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan each make a list of five episodes they would marathon about Voyager's fearless leader, Captain Kathryn Janeway. She is intelligent, can be a complete badass when the time calls, and though she is compassionate, she does not suffer fools gladly. Once you have listened to Char and Tristan's picks for a Janeway marathon, chime in with your own on The Babel Conference on Facebook or on Twitter (@ohtheprofanity and @TheInsaneRobin).

To The Journey 157: Mãsh

Voyager Rewrite of TNG's "Captain's Holiday."

What do you do when your captain refuses to take a much-needed vacation? As a crew member, you conspire with your peers and *make* it happen. That's what the crew of the Enterprise-D did to Captain Picard, and in this episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan do the same to Captain Janeway. With no prior preparation, Char and Tristan craft a rewrite of TNG's "Captain's Holiday" and give it a Voyager spin. Listen on and find out what sort of shenanigans ensue when Janeway meets her Vash.

To The Journey 156: Matt Ships Seven/Bashir

Voyager in the Dominion War.

Char and Tristan love playing "what if" and this week they have a humdinger. In this episode of To The Journey, Char, Tristan and special guest Matt Rushing ponder just what might have happened if Voyager had made it home during the Dominion War, an important storyline in Deep Space Nine. They explore the possibilities of when and how Voyager made it home, as well as how Voyager could have played a unique part in ending the war. Also -- perhaps most importantly -- what does Voyager do when the Dominion War is over and the series still has two more seasons to produce until its conclusion? Listen on to hear all of this and more.

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? Listen on, find out, and let us know your favorite moments on Twitter (@ohtheprofanity and @TheInsaneRobin) or Facebook (The Babel Conference).

To The Journey 154: Resting Vulcan Face

"Twisted" Commentary.

Bottle shows aren't often highly regarded among the fans as standouts since the lack of budget is often apparent in the final cut. However, the Season Two episode "Twisted" sits among Tristan's favorites. It's a bottle show, yes, but it still has enjoyable character moments. Watch along and listen as Char and Tristan lose themselves in their commentary for "Twisted," where Char pays extra attention to Robert Beltran's behavior and Tristan...wait, where did Tristan go?!

To The Journey 153: Mosh Pit of Emotion

"Infinite Regress" Rewrite.

One of Char and Tristan's favorite things to do on To The Journey is rewrite an episode of Voyager that could have used some extra love. On the block this go around is "Infinite Regress", an episode that is dynamic but lacks the long-term impact of a synthetic pathogenic virus. Grab your Kadis-kot board, listen in and find out how Char and Tristan would give "Infinite Regress" a new personality (or multiple) in their rewrites of this episode from Voyager's fifth season.

To The Journey 152: Prax is Essential

Essential Voyager, Season Five.

It's time once again for Essential Voyager! In this round, Char and Tristan take on Season Five. For a season with several standouts and solid quality overall, it might have been easier to say "just watch them all" and leave it at that, but that doesn't make for good podcasting. Instead, Char and Tristan did their homework and examined each episode for essential-worthy status. Just how many episodes did they keep and how does that affect the overall percentage of Essential Voyager overall? Tune in and find out.

To The Journey 151: Hot Rod of the Delta Quadrant

The Small Things.

Char and Tristan love Voyager, no doubt about it. But it is not just the epic two-parters and the hope of getting home that make the show tick — it is the smaller details that make it endearing as well. In this episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan discuss the finer elements of Voyager that they find captivating. Some things became a part of the show seemingly by accident, like Janeway's roster of hairdos through the seven-year run. Others were done quite intentionally, like the design of the Delta Flyer, and were so unique to Voyager that they couldn't go unnoticed. Please chime in on The Babel Conference, Twitter (@ohtheprofanity and @TheInsaneRobin) or email Char and Tristan (trek.fm/contact) and share the smaller details you cherish the most.
