164: The Naked Dessert

Rewriting DS9's "Fascination" into Voyager.

Tristan and Char have been on a creative streak lately. Two episodes ago, they conducted a session in the writer's room and improvised an episode live during the recording. Then, they explored what Voyager might look like in the JJ-verse. For this episode, they are still feeling the creative vibes, so Char and Tristan are back in the writer's room for a rewrite of Deep Space Nine's "Fascination." In this Season Three episode, a Bajoran holiday ritual mixes with telepathy and the crew starts forming unlikely infatuations with one another. Since Voyager never got its version of this "Naked Now"/"Naked Time"-esque storytelling, Char and Tristan take the premise from "Fascination" and rework it into Voyager. Who pursues whom and do they make out? You will have to listen to the episode and find out.

163: Ample Nacelles

Voyager in the JJ-Verse.

Star Trek loves playing with timelines. We have seen every incarnation of the franchise play with possibilities outside of what we consider "our" timeline, from Edith Keeler in the 1930s to Captain Janeway on in the 29th century. Aside from the "prime" universe and the Mirror Universe, we now have the Abramsverse. In this episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan envision what Voyager and her crew would be like in the timeline created in the JJ Abrams-produced films. They discuss the likelihood of a Vulcan on the ship, a CGI alien as a regular cast member, the aesthetics of key areas of the ship, and much more. And yes, lens flares are still a thing in the 24th century.

162: Undercover Chef

Episode On the Fly.

Char and Tristan have been recording To The Journey every week for the last 3+ years. One of the things they have learned in that time is that they make a crackerjack writing team. They have also learned that they have fun thinking on their feet. In this episode of To The Journey, they do both and write an episode of Voyager on the fly. That's right — with no preparation beforehand, they hit record and develop a full-length episode live on the podcast! This go round, the story centers around Tuvok, where he puts his undercover investigative talents — and his principles as a Vulcan Starfleet officer — to the test.

160: Bartering with the Irish

Season Six Essential Voyager.

Popular opinion among Voyager fans states that the show hit its peak in seasons four and five. If that is true, then where do the last two seasons stand in comparison to Voyager's heyday? In an effort to answer that question in this episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan return to their Essential Voyager series. They examine each episode for its importance to the characters, Voyager's journey home, the series as a whole, and condense the season down to mandatory viewing. Listen and find out if Season Six measures up to totals from previous seasons, or if it falls short of expectations...much like a malfunctioning holographic boyfriend.

To The Journey 159: Conversation is Irrelevant

TTJ AMA 2.

Char and Tristan know that listeners love it when they get a little personal. Some of the most popular episodes of To The Journey do just that, and it's the same reason why they did a Reddit-style "Ask Me Anything" in TTJ 137. That episode received so much of a response that Char and Tristan decided to open the floodgates once again and solicit questions from Twitter, The Babel Conference, and via email. In this episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan answer questions from listeners about art, their thoughts on the X-Files revival, who they would not want to be alone with in the Delta Flyer, and so much more. Many thanks to everyone who sent in questions!

To The Journey 158: Broken Delta Flyer

Five-episode Janeway Marathon.

Longtime To The Journey listeners know that Char and Tristan love marathoning Voyager on a lazy Sunday afternoon. They have created marathons for all seven seasons in episodes past. Now they are tackling character-centric marathons. In this episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan each make a list of five episodes they would marathon about Voyager's fearless leader, Captain Kathryn Janeway. She is intelligent, can be a complete badass when the time calls, and though she is compassionate, she does not suffer fools gladly. Once you have listened to Char and Tristan's picks for a Janeway marathon, chime in with your own on The Babel Conference on Facebook or on Twitter (@ohtheprofanity and @TheInsaneRobin).

To The Journey 157: Mãsh

Voyager Rewrite of TNG's "Captain's Holiday."

What do you do when your captain refuses to take a much-needed vacation? As a crew member, you conspire with your peers and *make* it happen. That's what the crew of the Enterprise-D did to Captain Picard, and in this episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan do the same to Captain Janeway. With no prior preparation, Char and Tristan craft a rewrite of TNG's "Captain's Holiday" and give it a Voyager spin. Listen on and find out what sort of shenanigans ensue when Janeway meets her Vash.

To The Journey 156: Matt Ships Seven/Bashir

Voyager in the Dominion War.

Char and Tristan love playing "what if" and this week they have a humdinger. In this episode of To The Journey, Char, Tristan and special guest Matt Rushing ponder just what might have happened if Voyager had made it home during the Dominion War, an important storyline in Deep Space Nine. They explore the possibilities of when and how Voyager made it home, as well as how Voyager could have played a unique part in ending the war. Also -- perhaps most importantly -- what does Voyager do when the Dominion War is over and the series still has two more seasons to produce until its conclusion? Listen on to hear all of this and more.
