Neelix.

What’s the Delta Quadrant’s answer to Siri and Google Maps? Why Neelix, of course! The king of the leola root is not many a Star Trek fan’s favorite, but we all agree he was a necessity to the Voyager crew. In this episode of To The Journey we take a close look at Janeway’s Sacajawea. Lorrie likes his “ask forgiveness, not permission” attitude, Char liked him when he wore spaghetti, and Tristan just generally likes him. How do you feel about the “bar rodent”?

To The Journey 34: Space Alzheimer’s

Fury Rewrite.

Kes was a sweet, kindhearted, loving little sprite when she left Voyager—and then came the episode “Fury.” We couldn’t let our girl go out like that, so this week we each salvage or totally rewrite the agony we saw onscreen. Char decides Kes needs to go all Al Gore in Ocampa, Tristan hooks her up with “man unknown,” and Lorrie uses the “Bob Newhart” approach. What would you have done with the hot mess that was “Fury”?

The Vidiians.

From the moment we saw them in “The Phage” to the mention of their cure in “Think Tank,” the Vidiians were an enemy to our intrepid crew. In this episode of To The Journey we tackle one of Voyager’s most horrifying villains, including what made them such a terrifying threat, our impressions of them as a race, and our respect for their survival techniques. Char makes us never look at Klingon B’Elanna the same way again, Tristan once again impresses us with his impressions—this time as Roxann Dawson with plastic teeth—and Lorrie might never use a quilt again without looking closely at the pattern.

To The Journey 32: No Palm Trees On Vulcan

Blood Fever Commentary.

It’s time to roll around in the dirt in this episode of To The Journey as we watch and discuss Voyager’s legendary Pon farr episode. Vorik chooses B’Elanna as his mate, and she punishes him for it. Tommy Boy shows his creamy center as he acts like a gentleman towards the woman of his dreams. Tristan does commentary in the style of Arnold Schwarzenegger… doing commentary. Char imitates… someone. And Lorrie likes the shiny-shine costumes. Get your DVD or Netflix ready, and watch along!

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?
