The Hirogen (VOY) and the Hunters (DS9: "Captive Pursuit") Comparison.  

It's clearly unethical to hunt another sentient being for sport; well, unless you are the Hirogen in Star Trek: Voyager or unless you are the Hunters in the first-season Deep Space Nine episode "Captive Pursuit." But while nicely-pressed red uniforms and glow-in-the-dark space helmets may be the hunting attire of choice for the Hunters in "Captive Pursuit" (hearkening back to the great English redcoat fox hunts of old Earth), the Hirogen took the sport of hunting to a more violent and more visceral level.  

In this episode of To The Journey, hosts Zachary Fruhling and Kay Shaw compare and contrast the tribal and nomadic Hirogen from Voyager with the more gentlemanly Tosk-hunters from the first-season Deep Space Nine episode "Captive Pursuit." Did the Hunters in Deep Space Nine provide the germ of the idea, and the model for, the more violent Hirogen in Voyager? And what is the Federation's moral responsibility to those being hunted, Tosk or otherwise, in light of the Federation's respect for the universal rights of individuals, in light of the non-interference policy of the Prime Directive, and in light of having tolerance for other cultures without those pesky human notions of morality?  

Plus, we break mid-show for a very special announcement from fellow To The Journey host, Suzanne Williamson, who has successfully sought out new life!

Lieutenant Carey Character Analysis.  

Recurring character Lieutenant Joe Carey may have met an untimely demise in the seventh-season Voyager episode "Friendship One," just missing the ride back home to the Alpha Quadrant in "Endgame." But the mild-mannered Starfleet engineer, with hair ever-so-slightly reminiscent of Chief O'Brien's, made a big impression on Voyagerfans, despite appearing in relatively few episodes of Voyager.  


In this episode of To The Journey, hosts Kay Shaw, Suzanne Williamson, and Zachary Fruhling go hunting for poisoned apples and accept a friendly lunch invitation for a character analysis of fan-favorite recurring character, Lieutenant Joe Carey (after being exonerated from giving Federation technology to the Kazon, of course).

Desert Island Episodes - Voyager Season 2.  

It's no secret that Zachary, Kay, and Suzanne are fans of the second season Voyagerepisode "Resolutions," especially with its Janeway/Chakotay fodder for the imagination. But there is more to season 2 of Star Trek: Voyager than "Resolutions"! From weighty life-or-death decisions in "Tuvix" to essential Chakotay backstory in "Tattoo," season 2 is where we begin to know and love the Voyager family.  

In this episode of To The Journey, hosts Zachary Fruhling, Kay Shaw, and Suzanne Williamson compare their top three "desert island" picks from season 2 of Star Trek: Voyager. Find out which episodes that Zachary, Kay, and Suzanne would take to their respective desert islands, forsaking all other episodes from Voyager season 2!

The Sequel.  

When To The Journey hosts Kay Shaw, Zachary Fruhling, and Suzanne Williamson wrote their first hypothetical Voyager feature film, The Progenitors (To The Journey 198: The Progenitors), there were always plans for a sequel, especially as The Progenitors left more than a few loose ends to tie up. From the Voyager crew being stranded aboard a 29th-century time ship to the sudden and inexplicable appearance of Henry Starling, The Progenitors created more questions than it answered. In this episode of To The Journey, join Kay, Zachary, and Suzanne in the writers' room as they aim higher, go deeper, and pull no punches while crafting their Voyager sequel, The Progenitors II!

Favorite Tom Paris / EMH Moments. 

Tom Paris and The Doctor may have been an unlikely comedic duo, but over seven seasons, both in and out of sickbay, they somehow became Voyager's Odd Couple. The relationship between Tom and The Doctor, however, runs deeper than mere comedy. Beneath all of the friendly banter, and the mostly friendly ribbing, lies genuine friendship, mutual respect, and lessons in life and humanity for both Tom and The Doctor.

In this episode of To The Journey, hosts Suzanne Williamson, Zachary Fruhling, and Kay Shaw share their favorite character moments between Voyager's irrepressible helmsman and its acerbic but compassionate Mark I Emergency Medical Hologram.

Dragon's Teeth.  

Resurrecting an ancient civilization is tricky business, especially when the Prime Directive is on the line, and doubly so when that ancient civilization has access to subspace corridors that could shave thousands of light years off your trip home to the Alpha Quadrant. Such is the situation in which we find Captain Janeway and the rest of the Voyager Crew when Seven of Nine takes it upon herself to awaken the Vaadwaur, asleep for 900 years in stasis pods after the near total annihilation of their planet.

In this episode of To The Journey, hosts Zachary Fruhling, Suzanne Williamson, and Kay Shaw have an ancient-world-style throw-down over the sixth-season Voyagerepisode "Dragon's Teeth." Join Zachary, Suzanne, and Kay as they resurrect an ancient civilization, accept that it is raining, and walk with dignity while listening to some less-than-cheerful Talaxian nursery rhymes (in the old tongue, naturally).

Lon Suder. 

It's Murder on the Delta Quadrant Express! The second-season Voyager episode "Meld" may not have been much of a murder mystery, since the whodunnit is resolved so quickly. "Meld," however, introduced us to one of the most memorable characters in all of Star Trek: Voyager, the not-quite-empathetic and disturbingly intense Betazoid, crewman Lon Suder.  

In this episode of To The Journey, hosts Kay Shaw, Suzanne Williamson, and Zachary Fruhling, along with Lieutenant Tuvok, take a deep dive inside the mind of Lon Suder. Do they find that everyone contains a tiny bit of Lon Suder inside? And is every Lon Suder perhaps really a mild-mannered botanist at heart?

Hobbies on Voyager.  

Facing a 70-year journey from the Delta Quadrant back home to Federation space, the crew of Voyager, out of necessity, finds plenty of ways to pass the time, from holo-photography and opera to Kadis-kot and Kal-toh. But which hobbies from the 20th and 21st centuries have survived into the 24th century, and which hobbies have faded into historical obscurity (perhaps to be revived by Tom Paris)? In this episode of To The Journey, hosts Suzanne Williamson, Kay Shaw, and Zachary Fruhling discuss the many hobbies and pastimes seen throughout Star Trek: Voyager.
