To The Journey 31: Jeri of Ryan

Seven of Nine.

Voyager’s resident Borg is next up on our continuing character analysis. Her introduction radically changed the landscape of the show, bringing the character into the spotlight time and time again. We discover that Char wanted Seven to go grunge, Lorrie enjoyed her “Borgness,” and Tristan still harbors a secret cardboard standup of her in a closet in his parent’s home. Were you able to resist or was it just futile?

To The Journey 30: Deal with the Devil

Janeway’s Treatment of the Prime Directive.

Throughout Voyager’s run, our intrepid captain often faced criticism for behavior which seemed to violate Starfleet General Order 1. In this week’s episode of To The Journey we discuss our varied opinions about Captain Janeway’s decisions. Was she an altruistic savior of the Delta Quadrant or a selfish, stubborn interloper?

To The Journey 28: The Toby of the Delta Quadrant

Harry Kim.

He’s Voyager’s forever green ensign, frequent victim of misfortune, and the topic for this episode of To The Journey. Charlynn, Tristan, and Lorrie delve into the man, the mystery, the enigma that is our Ops officer. From his constant brushes with death, to his ill-fated captaincy and his troubled romantic life, we talk about what we love and find endearing about this character. Do you think Harry deserved another pip on his collar?

The Kazon. 

The hairstyle-challenged thieves of the Delta Quadrant are on deck for this episode of To The Journey. Were these former slaves of the Trabe really the villains the Voyager producers meant them to be, or were they just misunderstood? Charlynn, Tristan, and Lorrie discuss the culture, failings, and what-ifs of the Kazon. Were they worthy of their LA street gang origins, or were they just salon accidents?

To The Journey 26: Lego Borg Queen

Those Bad Guys.

They’re the characters we can’t live with, and can’t live without. In this episode of To The Journey Tristan, Charlynn, and Lorrie have a three-round discussion of the characters we love to hate. Our list takes us from “Caretaker” all the way to “Endgame” with plenty of stops in between. We learn that Lorrie finds “Unforgettable“‘s Kellin quite forgettable, Char wishes Seska would’ve chosen better frenemies, and Tristan finds Red, I mean Annorax, a compelling creep. Who did you love to hate?

To The Journey 25: Icheb Is Dead

What if Voyager never got home?

At some point, every Voyager fan has wondered what would have happened if the crew hadn’t gotten home in “Endgame.” In this episode of To The Journey Tristan and Char discuss what might have been had the final installment of the series played out differently—whether that meant returning to Earth several decades later, settling on a planet in the Delta Quadrant, or going out in a blaze of glory. One thing’s for sure in all of these scenarios: In Tristan’s universe, Icheb is dead.

Strong Character Episodes.

Voyager often gets pooh-poohed for poor character development. This week we prove that completely wrong. In this episode of To The Journey, Tristan, Charlynn, and Lorrie discuss episodes that showcase the development of various characters on Voyager. Each choice reflects a facet of the characters, from “Faces” to “One.” We learn that Char loves sad clown Neelix, Lorrie extols Harry’s Jean Valjean martyr side, and Tristan, well he just gives Tuvok some love.

To The Journey 23: Talking Tommy

Thomas Eugene Paris.

It’s never easy being the son of an Admiral. Expectations run high and the pressure can get to even the best of us. In this episode of To The Journey, Char, Tristan, and Lorrie talk about Tommy-boy and the character arc that made him wonderful to watch. From playboy to daddy, the growth of his character made him one of the most realistic crew members on Voyager.

To The Journey 22: Not Shades of Grey

Shattered Commentary.

With Tristan in Sickbay, Char and Lorrie talk about the Voyager “clip episode” that wasn’t: “Shattered.” We look at the missed opportunities in a seven-year retrospective—such as Seska’s possible romantic re-entanglement with Chakotay or Chakotay’s choice to not violate the Temporal Prime Directive and tell Kathryn about the ship’s future.
