Star Trek: Voyager

Episode 156: Bride of Chaotica!

SPACEMAN FIRST CLASS

Star Trek has always had some wonderfully fun episodes to break up the drama in a season, and Star Trek: Voyager is no exception!

Season 5’s “Bride of Chaotica!” is a great homage to the sci-fi movie serials of the 30’s and 40’s like Buck Rogers and Flash Gordon, but this one has a decidedly Star Trek twist on it.

We’ll talk about what makes this episode so great and why it’s one you should watch again. It even gets Bill’s thumbs up–and he’d never seen it before!

Plus, don’t forget to listen for your special discount code from FanSets in this week’s episode!

CONFRONTING THE PAST

This week, we take a look at the Star Trek: Voyager episode, “Jetrel,” which is an amazing first season installment of the third live-action spinoff series.

Dr. Ma’bor Jetrel created a weapon fifteen years ago that was used against the Talaxians. 300,000 of Neelix’s people–including his own family. Now, Jetrel has come looking for Neelix who cold be terminally ill with Metremia, and Jetrel has been working on a cure.

We’ll talk about this standout episode from Voyager’s freshman season and the incredible performances from both James Sloyan and Ethan Phillips and whether or not either character achieves any sense of redemption.

Episode 127: Harry Kim Must Suffer

STILL AN ENSIGN

Man, has this guy been through a lot.

Ensign Harry Kim of the Starship Voyager. Operations Officer of the only Starfleet vessel in the Delta Quadrant. In seven years, he has seen a lot of things happen.

The problem is, they’ve happened to him. Harry could be the most abused character in the history of Star Trek and, this week, Dan and Bill will take a look at the oft-tortured and long-suffering ensign. They’ll discuss some of the more creative ways he was tortured and consider why he wasn’t promoted once by Captain Janeway.

Plus, there’s news on a new book on TOS, award nominations for Star Trek: Discovery, a brand-new podcast from Dr. Trek, and we’ll fondly remember DeForest Kelley who would have been 98 years old this week.

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!
