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 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 50: Science Vessel Done Right

Voyager. Our Ship.

From the first moment we saw her docked at Deep Space 9, we all knew Voyager was different than any ship we’d seen before. Learning about her technical specs and seeing her do cool things—like actually landing on a planet—made us like her more and more. In this episode of To The Journey we turn our attention to Voyager, our lovely ship. Charlynn thinks she turned out just right, Tristan thinks she’s sexy (from the other side of the room’s discussion), and Lorrie thinks she’s aerodynamic. Any way you look at her, she’s perfect for the show. What did you think of the little ship that could?

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 48: Sub Unit

Samantha and Naomi Wildman.

In this episode of To The Journey we continue our character analysis series with our favorite Katarian and her mom. Even though Naomi only had nineteen appearances, she made quite an impact on Voyager. She most definitely won the award for Least Annoying Kid on Star Trek. Tristan enjoyed the many versions of Naomi, Char cringed at her long gestation and horrifying birth, and Lorrie thought the writers just forgot about impregnating Samantha altogether. How do you feel about the pint-sized Captain’s assistant?

What Voyager episodes would you watch if you had five hours to spare? In this episode of To The Journey we talk about our sentimental favorites and those episodes we just keep coming back to over and over again. Tristan remembers his dad’s feelings about Voyager, Charlynn gets her J/C moments, and Lorrie relives her first Voyager experience. What’s your ideal marathon?
