"Fury" in the Mirror Universe.

In the previous episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan set the stage for the next installment of the mirror universe series, so why not keep going? It's time for Kes' revenge!

Three years have passed between the story written in the last TTJ and this one, which means some serious shenanigans have gone down aboard the ISS Intrepid. With the balance of power always in flux in the mirror universe, who's controlling what — and whom? And meanwhile, what has Kes been doing since she fled the Intrepid? She returns, just as she promised to Tuvok and B'Elanna, but what tricks does she have up her sleeve? Tune in and find out how Char and Tristan wrap up their Voyager mirror universe.

That's right, this is the last episode that will feature the mirror universe because Char and Tristan have an important announcement: They will end their four-year tenure on To The Journey with episode 190, set for release on Nov. 10.

"Resolutions" Commentary.

Sometimes when things in life get tough, you've got to indulge in a little bit of comfort. For Char and Tristan, that comfort is a heaping serving of Janeway and Chakotay goodness. In this episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan indulge in "Resolutions," the episode that drove the J/C shippers wild 20 years ago...and still does. It's got the implausible romance setup of a man and a woman alone together on a planet, a bathtub, headboards, ancient legends, and of course, a primate. All the makings of a perfect love story for two people coming from vastly different backgrounds, but slowly coming together...until Tuvok and the Voyager crew come racing back to New Earth and rip them away from all that could have been. Le sigh.

"Muse" Commentary.  

The Voyager story has always been epic in scope, with its 70-year journey home being reminiscent of Odysseus's ten-year voyage home to Ithaca after the fall of Troy in the ancient Greek epic poem, The Odyssey. With this epic scope of the Voyager story, it's no accident that Kelis, a poet and playwright from an alien society reminiscent of ancient Greece, finds creative inspiration in the mission logs from the wreckage of the Delta Flyerin the sixth-season Voyager episode "Muse."  

In this episode of To The Journey, hosts Suzanne Williamson and Zachary Fruhling give an audio commentary on "Muse" and explore whether the Voyager story, or perhaps Star Trekin general, really has the power to end wars and create peace through drama as inspiration and cathartic release.

Favorite Captain Janeway / Seven of Nine Moments.  Kate Mulgrew and Jeri Ryan shared a lot of of screen time as Captain Janeway and Seven of Nine in seasons 4 through 7 of Star Trek: Voyager. Most of these moments, however, seem to fall into one of three categories: (1) Seven of Nine learns something about humanity from Captain Janeway, (2) Captain Janeway and Seven share a heartfelt bonding moment, and (3) Seven of Nine gets under Captain Janeway's skin.

Voyager in the Mirror Universe.

The closest Voyager ever got to a Mirror Universe episode was "Living Witness," which portrayed the crew as ruthless toward those it encountered, and with quicker tendencies toward violence. Despite these similarities, this depiction was actually a historically inaccurate portrayal of Voyager's actions in the Delta Quadrant. This episode whet the appetites of many Voyager fans and served as a sampler of what the Mirror Universe might have been like. In this episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan take up the suggestion of several listeners and set the stage for what might have transpired in the Delta Quadrant Mirror Universe.

Create a New Character.

With all the untapped potential Voyager had, it's not much of a surprise that "what if" speculations are a regular component of To The Journey. And guess what — this week is yet another scenario where Char and Tristan let their imaginations do the talking. This week, they add a member to the crew, describe his or her role on the ship, and explain how this character integrates with the other regulars. And before you ask, no, this isn't a "replace Seven of Nine with another character" discussion; in fact, that was already done on TTJ 135! This character is someone new who isn't replacing anybody.

But wait — aren't there plenty of people already in this large ensemble cast? Yes. Is there really a void another character could fill? Absolutely, yes. Listen and find out how Char and Tristan made their scenarios work.

Voyager. Our Ship.

From the first moment we saw her docked at Deep Space 9, we all knew Voyager was different than any ship we’d seen before. Learning about her technical specs and seeing her do cool things—like actually landing on a planet—made us like her more and more. In this episode of To The Journey we turn our attention to Voyager, our lovely ship. Charlynn thinks she turned out just right, Tristan thinks she’s sexy (from the other side of the room’s discussion), and Lorrie thinks she’s aerodynamic. Any way you look at her, she’s perfect for the show. What did you think of the little ship that could?

What if Janeway Died, Part II.

WE LOVE JANEWAY! She is our captain! Please read on and listen.

Losing a main character on a Trek series is no small matter, but losing a captain would have been doubly problematic, had it happened. That's why Char and Tristan speculated what would have happened if Janeway had died in To The Journey 113, "Harry Gets Promoted." However, they only got through Season Three, which leaves four more years of "what ifs" to ponder. Have tissues at the ready, because in this episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan pick up where they left off in TTJ 113 and discuss areas of seasons 5-7 where Janeway could have died and why.

Kes.

Our next character analysis takes us to the lovely underground home of the Ocampa and its gift to Voyager, Kes. In this episode of To The Journey as we explore the pixie’s life from her introduction in “Caretaker” to her departure in “The Gift.” All of us agree we love her spirit and taste for exploration, and that the writers of Voyager should have used her more often. Char loves her dishing out the snark to the Doctor, Tristan loves her backwards kangaroo maternity clothes, and Lorrie thinks her telekinetic powers should have been used to do cooler things that just melting Tuvok’s face. What did you like about Kes?

Workforce Rewrite.

Don’t you hate it when Input Error 415 and Command Code Violation 2308 ruin your day at the office? So do we. And we’re going to do something about it. In this episode of To The Journey we rewrite of the lovely two-parter “Workforce.” We take the lukewarm show and try to inject some life into it. Tristan turns the work planet into a gulag, Charlynn squeezes some J/C love out of it, and Lorrie wants the Doctor to save the day. What would you do with “Workforce”?
