To The Journey 69: Lindsay Crouse is a Saint!

Casting Could-Have-Beens.

Finding the perfect actress to play the role of Janeway was a long and difficult process— especially after the first pick, Genevieve Bujold, quit after two days of shooting. In this episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan talk about several people who auditioned for Janeway, as well as others who auditioned for main roles. Could you imagine the series being helmed by Lindsay Crouse, Patty Duke, or Joanna Cassidy? What about Claudia Christian as Seven of Nine? Listen on as Tristan and Char imagine the possibilities.

To The Journey 68: Creepy Pleasure

Worst Aliens of the Week.

Seeing the parade of new aliens on Voyager was usually fun. But sometimes it's good riddance when you never see a person or alien species again. In this episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan talk about the aliens they were glad they didn't see beyond one appearance. Char was glad she wasn't creeped out by Gath beyond "Prime Factors," and Tristan didn't miss the ungrateful Caatati after "Day of Honor." Listen on and find out which other aliens made Char and Tristan's lists!

To The Journey 67: Zombified

One vs. Doctor's Orders.

Many Star Trek fans complain when a newer show "recycles" a plot from a previous series, but what if the same plot is used on two Trek shows in unique ways that make them flourish within their respective series? In this episode of To the Journey, Char and Tristan compare and contrast Voyager's "One" with Enterprise's "Doctor's Orders." We discuss the merits of having a dog for companionship, Seven's "dream" of being in the North Dakota tundra, and which hallucinations we liked best.

To The Journey 66: Secretly in Love

Season Four Marathon.

Reset buttons, genocide, catsuits, and Janeway in a tux. These are just a few of the things that Voyager threw our way during its fourth season. And in this episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan pick their top five episodes for a lazy Sunday Season Four marathon. With so many fantastic episodes in Season Four, it's tough to whittle it down to just five. How can you pick one two-parter without the other? We do our best! See if you agree!

To The Journey 65: Neelix's Pimp Coat

Costumes on Voyager.

When it comes to storytelling, it's not just about what the characters do or say—it's also about what they wear. And Voyager certainly treated us to a wide range of eye-popping fashion. Some were great, some were ludicrous, and some were... well... Neelix.

In this episode of To The Journey, Tristan and Char delve deep into what kind of quality lay within the literal fabric of Voyager. Whether it has red piping, half-jackets, or underboob, the TTJ team is all over it. We discuss our favorite and least favorite outfits and how, when people get lazy, they turn into Halloween candy.

To The Journey 63: The Q and the Earl Grey


He started off as the veritable "bad boy" of the universe and the king of mischief on TNG, but some argue that he didn't exactly stay that way. In this episode of To The Journey, Charlynn and Tristan are visited by the folks from Earl Grey and finish their discussion of Q with a look at his appearances on Voyager. Both crews argue the merits and faults of "Death Wish," "The Q and the Grey," and "Q2." *FINGER SNAP followed by WHOOSH*

To The Journey 62: CHA-KO-TAY

Living Witness Commentary.

What would you do if you woke up 700 years in the future but you felt like only a day had passed?

They talk about pilgrim fashion sense, the correct pronunciation of our peppered XO’s name, and, of course, the importance of revisionist history. So sit back, relax, and pop in your DVD… do it!

To The Journey 61: The Third Path

The Talaxians.

They're cooks, traders, smugglers, warriors, and narcotics dealers—just like us! We don't hear about Talaxian culture in much detail over the course of Voyager, but in this episode of To The Journey Char and Tristan get down to the nitty gritty on what it means to always have an X in your name. Would you forsake your kind and go to Earth or get cozy with a local woman on an asteroid? That's just one of the questions we seek to answer.
