To The Journey 63: The Q and the Earl Grey


He started off as the veritable "bad boy" of the universe and the king of mischief on TNG, but some argue that he didn't exactly stay that way. In this episode of To The Journey, Charlynn and Tristan are visited by the folks from Earl Grey and finish their discussion of Q with a look at his appearances on Voyager. Both crews argue the merits and faults of "Death Wish," "The Q and the Grey," and "Q2." *FINGER SNAP followed by WHOOSH*

To The Journey 62: CHA-KO-TAY

Living Witness Commentary.

What would you do if you woke up 700 years in the future but you felt like only a day had passed? Thankfully, you don't have a backup module like the Doctor does.  In this episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan do their own live commentary for the season four episode "Living Witness." They talk about pilgrim fashion sense, the correct pronunciation of our peppered XO’s name, and, of course, the importance of revisionist history. So sit back, relax, and pop in your DVD… do it!

To The Journey 61: The Third Path

The Talaxians.

They're cooks, traders, smugglers, warriors, and narcotics dealers—just like us! We don't hear about Talaxian culture in much detail over the course of Voyager, but in this episode of To The Journey Char and Tristan get down to the nitty gritty on what it means to always have an X in your name. Would you forsake your kind and go to Earth or get cozy with a local woman on an asteroid? That's just one of the questions we seek to answer.

But don’t worry, folks, we’ll talk about her worst ones soon.

To The Journey 58: Pixel Junkie

Voyager on Blu-ray.

It was a bit of a surprise when CBS announced that Star Trek: The Next Generation would receive an HD “makeover” due to the amount of work involved. However, these Blu-rays have fast become fan favorites, and now it seems likely that every Trek incarnation will eventually be released in this format. In this episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan discuss which episode moments they most look forward to seeing in HD, as well as extras they want in addition to the episodes. Oh, and Char blows Tristan’s mind at one point in this episode.
