Desert Island Episodes - Voyager Season 4.  

Season 4 of Star Trek: Voyager saw a great deal of change with the departure of Kes and the arrival of Seven of Nine. But it's also safe to say that Voyager hit its full stride in season 4, with the exploration of Seven of Nine's reclaimed humanity and some of the most memorable episodes in Voyager's entire run.  

In this episode of To The Journey, hosts Zachary Fruhling, Suzanne Williamson, and Kay Shaw continue their "Desert Island" series, comparing their high-stakes choices for the top three Voyager episodes from this season that they would take with them to a desert island, forsaking all other episodes from season 4 forever. Find out who's coming over for Voyager night in whose desert-island hut, and who's watching which season 4 episodes alone.

Daddy Issues.  

While the crew of Voyager rightly constitute their own adopted family aboard Voyager, an important aspect of many Voyager characters' backstories is their troubled, or at least challenged, relationship with their respective fathers and father figures. From Tom Paris's sense of inadequacy in living up to Admiral Paris's expectations to The Doctor's ongoing attempt to build a relationship with his father-figure and creator, Dr. Lewis Zimmerman, the crew of Voyager frequently explores the murky realm of parental and familial relations.  

In this episode of To The Journey, hosts Kay Shaw, Suzanne Williamson, and Zachary Fruhling explore the complex and often troubled paternal relationships of the Voyagercrew, building new bridges and tearing down old walls along the journey!

Defending "Threshold."  

The second-season episode "Threshold" is generally acknowledged to be one of the weakest episodes of Star Trek: Voyager. But in this episode of To The Journey, hosts Suzanne Williamson, Kay Shaw, and Zachary Fruhling respond to a recent challenge to give their best defense, an apologia in the classical Greek sense, of "Threshold," discussing only its merits and leaving any criticism of "Threshold" in their quarters.  

From the physics of traveling at Warp 10 and occupying every point in the universe simultaneously to the importance of "Threshold" for the character development of Tom Paris and his (um, professional) relationship with Captain Janeway, find out whether "Threshold" can be salvaged from the ash heap of Delta Quadrant history and reestablished as part of the pantheon of important and valuable episodes of Star Trek: Voyager.

Spooky Voyager.  

It's the haunting of To The Journey! In this special Halloween episode of To The Journey, hosts Kay Shaw, Zachary Fruhling, and Suzanne Williamson go in search of the scariest, spookiest, and downright creepiest episodes, moments, and imagery in all of Star Trek: Voyager.

New To The Journey!
“Macrovirus? Tastes Like Chicken!”
Desert Island Episodes - Voyager Season 3.

If you could take three, and only three, episodes from season three of Star Trek: Voyager with you to a desert island, and not just any desert island, a desert island on a planet deep inside the Delta Quadrant 70,000 light years from home, which episodes would you choose?

Drone.  

What do you get when you cross a few Borg nanoprobes, a piece of 29th-century holographic technology, and the DNA of a Starfleet ensign? One extremely souped-up 29th-century Borg drone! But this drone also comes with a human heart, willing to sacrifice himself for the well-being of his Voyager collective.

Tom Paris and B'Elanna Torres Relationship Analysis.  

We see precious few genuine romantic relationships onscreen in Star Trek, and arguably the relationship between Tom Paris and B'Elanna Torres is the most fully developed relationship in all of Star Trek. Over the seven-year run of Star Trek: Voyager, we see the full progression of Tom and B'Elanna's romantic relationship, from their initial status as slightly antagonistic colleagues, to their developing friendship and courtship, to their eventual marriage and the birth of their daughter, Miral. 


In this episode of To The Journey, hosts Kay Shaw, Suzanne Williamson, and Zachary Fruhling take an in-depth look at the high points, and the low points, of Voyager's resident opposites-attract couple, Tom Paris and B'Elanna Torres.

Counselor Troi in Voyager.  

Some fans of Star Trek: The Next Generation who didn't follow Voyager's seven-year trek home from the Delta Quadrant may not realize that Marina Sirtis reprised her role as Counselor Deanna Troi in three different episode of Star Trek: Voyager. Some people even (audaciously) maintain that Counselor Troi was a more sophisticated and effective counselor in Voyager as she counseled her colleague and friend, Lieutenant Reginald Barclay, than she was in Star Trek: The Next Generation.


In this episode of To The Journey, hosts Suzanne Williamson, Kay Shaw, and Zachary Fruhling are joined by Amy Nelson, co-host of Trek.fm's dedicated Next Generationpodcast Earl Grey, for a discussion of Marina Sirtis's three appearances as Counselor Deanna Troi in Star Trek: Voyager.
