Trek Geeks #92: Equinox


EquinoxThis week, we’ll take a look at the fifth season cliffhanger/sixth season premiere of Star Trek: Voyager!

“Equinox” premiered in May of 1999 and told the story of a second Starfleet ship stranded in the Delta Quadrant, the U.S.S. Equinox, and its crew has been doing some very dark things to get home.

We’ll discuss the events of this episode and some of the fantastic character moments and Captain Janeway’s obsession with going after Captain Ransom and whether or not that was in character for her.

We’ll also talk about the genocide committed by the crew of the Equinox and whether there was any possible justification for their actions. Plus, we’ll look at whether Chakotay should have relieved Captain Janeway of her command in this episode.

Plus, we’ve got LOTS of news on Star Trek: Discovery including leaked photos and brand new casting information!

It’s all in episode 92 of Your Independent Star Trek Podcast!
