In this episode of To The Journey we're talking Voyager! But not Voyager, the show; this time we're talking Voyager, the ship! From Delta Quadrant upgrades to socializing the bio-neural gel packs, join hosts Suzanne Williamson, Zachary Fruhling, and Kay Shaw as they push the envelope at Warp 9.976 and compare notes on what they love about the U.S.S. Voyager and which parts of Voyager's design don't quite add up.

Before and After.  

In the third-season Voyager episode "Before and After," we get a glimpse into one possible future for the Voyager family. In this future we see Captain Chakotay (pips and all), First Officer Tuvok (still in gold), Security Officer Neelix (also in gold), Dr. van Gogh (with holographic hair plugs), Harry Kim as Tom Paris's son-in-law (bromanced as ever), and our first peek into the notorious Year of Hell.

Tuvok Unhinged.  

Vulcans are generally known for being calm, cool, rational, and collected. But every once in a while even a Vulcan can come unglued at the seams. And our favorite Vulcan member of the Voyager crew, the one and only Mr. Tuvok, is no exception. Over Voyager's seven-year journey, we see Tuvok mind melding, Pon Farring, cake baking, wax flower making, flashbacking, emotion repressing, brain igniting, and even strolling onto the bridge sans uniform! (Okay, that last one was just a bad dream, but still....)

"Emanations" Commentary.  

What happens when we die? Is it simply "lights out"? Do we commune with our ancestors in some kind of afterlife? Or are we sucked into a subspace vacuole, swept away to decompose into a web of biopolymer residue on some backwater asteroid in a distant planetary ring system? In this episode of To The Journey, join hosts Zachary Fruhling, Kay Shaw, and Suzanne Williamson for a commentary on the first-season Voyager episode "Emanations." Join an away mission to the afterlife with Zachary, Kay, Suzanne, and Ensign Kim. But don't forget your biopolymer silk T-shirt for your debut in that big Lady Gaga concert in the sky!

Robert Beltran and Roxann Dawson may not have had much one-on-one screen time together as Cmdr. Chakotay and Lt. B'Elanna Torres.
