199: Animal Guide Venn Diagram

Top Five Chakotay/B'Elanna Moments. 

Robert Beltran and Roxann Dawson may not have had much one-on-one screen time together as Cmdr. Chakotay and Lt. B'Elanna Torres. But the moments they did share on-screen were memorable and helped to establish a strong sibling-like bond between these two former members of the Maquis. From brother-sister banter to tough-love interventions, hosts Zachary Fruhling, Suzanne Williamson, and Kay Shaw compare their top five Chakotay/B'Elanna Moments in Star Trek: Voyager.

Thirty Days. 

Of all the characters in Star Trek: Voyager, perhaps Tom Paris had the greatest degree of character growth during Voyager's run, developing from an immature ex-convict into a responsible Starfleet officer and helmsman, and a loving husband and father. The fifth-season episode "Thirty Days," however, sees Tom Paris once again in trouble with the law, and with Captain Janeway. But this time, the broken and newly demoted Ensign Paris spends his thirty days in the brig because he acted on his principles and his conscience, defying orders from the captain who gave him his second chance only five years before. In this episode of To The Journey, hosts Zachary Fruhling, Kay Shaw, and Suzanne Williamson share their thoughts on Tom's seafaring aspirations and on the inner struggles of Voyager's beloved fly-boy.

195: Without the Hot Pants

Top Five Doctor/Seven Moments.  

The character interaction between The Doctor and Seven of Nine provided some of the most charming, the most amusing, and the sweetest moments in all of Star Trek: Voyager. In this episode of To The Journey, hosts Kay Shaw, Zachary Fruhling, and Suzanne Williamson compare their top five Doctor/Seven moments. From duets to first dates, and from synthehol tolerance to portraiture, Kay, Zachary, and Suzanne share 30,000 gigaquads of research data on the compatibility of a Borg and a hologram.

194: Come Sail Away

Coda.  

It's safe to say that Voyager fans generally have strong feelings about the third-season episode "Coda." Janeway/Chakotay shippers tend to embrace this episode for its tender and impassioned portrayal of the special bond between Commander Chakotay and Captain Janeway. And although "Coda" suffers from the Voyager reset-button effect (after an impressive number of Janeway death scenes!), "Coda" reveals the depth of affection that the Voyager crew share for their beloved captain. From old-fashioned resuscitation techniques to the contrasting portrayals of tenderness and suspense, hosts Suzanne Williamson, Zachary Fruhling, and Kay Shaw bare their souls about all things "Coda."

192: But It Never Really Happened

Voyager Continuity.  

Voyager is sometimes criticized for not having the same degree of continuity as Deep Space Nine or Enterprise. But in this episode of To The Journey, hosts Kay Shaw, Suzanne Williamson, and Zachary Fruhling discuss various examples of continuity in Voyager, from callbacks to previous episodes to continuity with the rest of the Star Trek universe. Together Kay, Suzanne, and Zachary argue that, despite all-too-frequent use of the dreaded episodic reset button, Voyager has its own unique brand of storytelling continuity that serves the development of Voyager's overall tale.

What Made Voyager a Family.

In the beginning, stranded in the middle of uncharted space was a divided crew against a slew of enemy aliens. It's a miracle Voyager got home at all, much less in seven years. But Voyager was the little ship that could, and one of the biggest reasons why was due to its crew. The transition of uniting Starfleet and Maquis crews into one had its initial hiccups (Seska and Jonas, anyone?), but eventually the people running Voyager became more than just a crew. They became a family.

In this last episode of To The Journey hosted by Charlynn Schmiedt and Tristan Riddell, they discuss everything that made Voyager a family. They parallel how real-life circumstances might have united the actors that portrayed the crew, how a family atmosphere was portrayed on the show (or in some cases, maybe not enough), and how that cemented the show's place as a unique entity in the Star Trek universe.

To all of our Trek family, we thank you for joining us for our four glorious years of talking Voyager. To The Journey! —Tristan and Char
