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?  

In this episode of To The Journey, hosts Suzanne Williamson, Zachary Fruhling, and Kay Shaw compare their top three desert-island episode picks from season three of Star Trek: Voyager, in search of the answer to that age-old question: Who is coming over for "Coda" night?

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.  


In this episode of To The Journey, hosts Zachary Fruhling, Suzanne Williamson, and Kay Shaw take a dive into a Borg maturation chamber as they discuss the fifth-season Voyager episode "Drone."

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.

Vorik Character Analysis.  

Tuvok wasn't the only Vulcan aboard Voyager. In contrast to Tuvok's elder-statesman Vulcan persona was the more youthful and more enthusiastic Ensign Vorik. Being a youthful Vulcan, however, is not without its challenges. Your first Pon Farr can be especially disorienting when lost in the Delta Quadrant, 70,000 light years from the nearest Vulcan female. Just ask the apple of Vorik's eye and the object of his chemical-imbalanced affection, Lieutenant Torres.

In this episode of To The Journey, hosts Kay Shaw and Zachary Fruhling scratch the Vulcan seven-year itch with a character analysis of Ensign Vorik, including his internalization of Tom Paris's 20th-century advice not to lose one's Vulcan cool.

"Pathfinder" Commentary.  

Fans of Star Trek: The Next Generation were treated to not just one, but two, Next Generation cast members reprising their roles in the sixth-season episode of Star Trek: Voyager, "Pathfinder": Dwight Schultz as the nervous but endearing Lieutenant Reginald Barclay, and Marina Sirtis as Counselor Deanna Troi.  

In this episode of To The Journey, hosts Zachary Fruhling and Kay Shaw sit down together for a "Pathfinder" audio commentary while fellow To The Journey host Suzanne Williamson is temporarily lost in some holographic fantasy along with Lieutenant Barclay and Commander Chakotay (who, coincidentally, forgoes a Starfleet uniform in favor of his Maquis leather, both in Lieutenant Barclay's holographic fantasy, and in Suzanne's).

The Void.  

With Voyager trapped inside a region of space absent of any matter, and under threat of siege by numerous alien vessels, Captain Janeway goes recruiting to form a mini-Federation alliance with the captains of some of the alien vessels, to pool their resources, to provide for their mutual protection, and to increase their collective chances of returning to normal space.  


In this episode of To The Journey, hosts Kay Shaw and Zachary Fruhling are joined by Trek.fm content manager Justin Oser as they spread the good news of Captain Janeway's budding alliance in their discussion of the seventh-season Voyager episode "The Void."

The Hirogen (VOY) and the Hunters (DS9: "Captive Pursuit") Comparison.  

It's clearly unethical to hunt another sentient being for sport; well, unless you are the Hirogen in Star Trek: Voyager or unless you are the Hunters in the first-season Deep Space Nine episode "Captive Pursuit." But while nicely-pressed red uniforms and glow-in-the-dark space helmets may be the hunting attire of choice for the Hunters in "Captive Pursuit" (hearkening back to the great English redcoat fox hunts of old Earth), the Hirogen took the sport of hunting to a more violent and more visceral level.  

In this episode of To The Journey, hosts Zachary Fruhling and Kay Shaw compare and contrast the tribal and nomadic Hirogen from Voyager with the more gentlemanly Tosk-hunters from the first-season Deep Space Nine episode "Captive Pursuit." Did the Hunters in Deep Space Nine provide the germ of the idea, and the model for, the more violent Hirogen in Voyager? And what is the Federation's moral responsibility to those being hunted, Tosk or otherwise, in light of the Federation's respect for the universal rights of individuals, in light of the non-interference policy of the Prime Directive, and in light of having tolerance for other cultures without those pesky human notions of morality?  

Plus, we break mid-show for a very special announcement from fellow To The Journey host, Suzanne Williamson, who has successfully sought out new life!

Lieutenant Carey Character Analysis.  

Recurring character Lieutenant Joe Carey may have met an untimely demise in the seventh-season Voyager episode "Friendship One," just missing the ride back home to the Alpha Quadrant in "Endgame." But the mild-mannered Starfleet engineer, with hair ever-so-slightly reminiscent of Chief O'Brien's, made a big impression on Voyagerfans, despite appearing in relatively few episodes of Voyager.  


In this episode of To The Journey, hosts Kay Shaw, Suzanne Williamson, and Zachary Fruhling go hunting for poisoned apples and accept a friendly lunch invitation for a character analysis of fan-favorite recurring character, Lieutenant Joe Carey (after being exonerated from giving Federation technology to the Kazon, of course).
