Episode 115: Workforce

A DIFFERENT LIFE FOR THE CREW

Bill was watching BBC America recently and came across two Voyager episodes he’d never seen.

It was the season 7 two-parter, “Workforce,” in which the crew finds themselves kidnapped by an alien race and put to work in their industrial plants.  Their memories have been altered and they have no memory of the life they know.

We’ll examine this episode in true Trek Geeks style and tell you the things we liked, as well as some of the things we didn’t. Plus, we’ll take a look at some central questions this episode raises for us.

Believe it or not, there’s one aspect of this story on which Bill and Dan disagree! Find out what it is in this week’s episode.

Plus, there’s lots of news regarding Star Trek: Discovery, brand new pins from our friends at FanSets, and the very first installment of Discovering Trek: A Star Trek Discovery Companion has been released and you can subscribe right now!

TimelessFIFTEEN YEARS OF GUILT

One mistake can change everything.

That’s the lesson learned by Ensign Harry Kim in the 100th episode of Star Trek: Voyager.

This week, Dan and Bill dive in on the episode and discuss some of it’s finer points. Make no mistake: this is some of the best material the writers ever gave Garrett Wang, and we’ll talk about why.
