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.

Voyager Controversies.

Introducing the new To The Journey with hosts Suzanne Williamson, Kay Shaw, and Zachary Fruhling! For their first assignment in the Delta Quadrant, Suzanne, Kay, and Zachary lay their Voyager cards on the table, sharing their thoughts on the things they love—and hate—about Voyager.

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

"Author, Author" Commentary.

Just about any episode centered around The Doctor is likely to be entertaining. What's better than that? Well, what about an episode that's as entertaining as it is thought-provoking? Cue Voyager's "Author, Author," which aired in the last third of the seventh season. Motivated by the knowledge that EMH Mark I holograms like himself have been relegated to menial jobs, The Doctor has written "Photons Be Free," a holonovel that is loosely based on his experience aboard Voyager. But when the crew sees thinly-veiled exaggerations of themselves being portrayed in the program, they're not exactly happy. Join Tristan and Char in this episode of To The Journey as they break out the quills, the smoking jackets and the Netflix as they comment on the shenanigans that ensue as The Doctor fights for his intellectual property rights.

188: Year of Fury

"Fury" in the Mirror Universe.

In the previous episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan set the stage for the next installment of the mirror universe series, so why not keep going? It's time for Kes' revenge!

Three years have passed between the story written in the last TTJ and this one, which means some serious shenanigans have gone down aboard the ISS Intrepid. With the balance of power always in flux in the mirror universe, who's controlling what — and whom? And meanwhile, what has Kes been doing since she fled the Intrepid? She returns, just as she promised to Tuvok and B'Elanna, but what tricks does she have up her sleeve? Tune in and find out how Char and Tristan wrap up their Voyager mirror universe.

That's right, this is the last episode that will feature the mirror universe because Char and Tristan have an important announcement: They will end their four-year tenure on To The Journey with episode 190, set for release on Nov. 10.

187: Purple Stuff

Voyager Mirror Universe, Part 5.

In the same way that little kids will repeat an action if it makes an adult laugh, Char and Tristan are here to give the listeners what they want. And what they want is more adventures aboard the ISS Intrepid, better known as the Voyager mirror universe. Char and Tristan started creating their interpretation of the mirror Voyager crew in the Delta Quadrant back in TTJ 114, and in this fifth installment written on-the-fly, the story's focus centers on Kes and Neelix. They have both been indentured servants in exchange for being rescued by the Kazon shortly after the Intrepid found itself in the Delta Quadrant. After three years of serving the crew, Neelix thinks it's time he and Kes moved on, but Janeway doesn't think they have repaid their debt in full. What now? Tune in to this fifth installment of the Voyager mirror universe and find out.

186: All Natural Borg Birth

Origin of the Borg.

Ask a Star Trek fan about the how the Borg collective got started, and you might hear a few different theories. One is that the collective was started after V'ger joined with Decker in Star Trek: The Motion Picture. Others point to stories in Star Trek literature that reveal the Borg Queen's rise to power over countless millions. But the truth is, nothing in canon states how the Borg came to be. Therefore, as promised at the end of the last show, Char and Tristan put their collective heads together and come up with their own version of how the Borg originated in this episode of To The Journey. Did their story match up to any theories of your own? Contact us at trek.fm/contact or on Twitter (@ohtheprofanity and @TheInsaneRobin) and let us know!

185: Time Traveling Neelix

Voyager as an Animated Series.

Star Trek's animated series is an often overlooked edition in the show's extensive catalogue. Yes, it was short-lived and yes, it wasn't always good, but it also made the most of telling Star Trek stories in an animated format — especially on a ridiculously low budget. But when we say that The Animated Series has an important place in Trek lore, don't take our word for it; instead, tune into Trek.fm's Saturday Morning Trek, which explores all facets of Star Trek in the 1970s.

In this episode of To the Journey, Char and Tristan ponder an animated version of Voyager. How would it be developed and distributed if it were being produced today? What sort of stories would it tell? How would animation lend itself to new things that couldn't have been done on the live action series? They think through these questions and more, so tune in and let us know what you think of the idea of an animated Voyager series.

184: Janeway Sideboob

"Resolutions" Commentary.

Sometimes when things in life get tough, you've got to indulge in a little bit of comfort. For Char and Tristan, that comfort is a heaping serving of Janeway and Chakotay goodness. In this episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan indulge in "Resolutions," the episode that drove the J/C shippers wild 20 years ago...and still does. It's got the implausible romance setup of a man and a woman alone together on a planet, a bathtub, headboards, ancient legends, and of course, a primate. All the makings of a perfect love story for two people coming from vastly different backgrounds, but slowly coming together...until Tuvok and the Voyager crew come racing back to New Earth and rip them away from all that could have been. Le sigh.
