Trek Geeks #209: Blink of an Eye


Our year-long celebration of Star Trek: Voyager’s 25th Anniversary continues and, this week, we look at one of Voyager’s best.

“Blink of an Eye” from Season 6 puts the crew in a situation we’ve never seen: stuck in the orbit of a planet where time passes much faster. They witness centuries of development of this planet and shape much of the society’s progress.

We’ll discuss what makes this such an amazing episode of Star Trek, along with standout performances and the questions it makes us ask.

Every note of music you hear on Trek Geeks is the amazing work of the band Five Year Mission. They’re writing one song for each episode of Star Trek–and we are HUGE fans!

They even have a rather eponymously named podcast here on the Trek Geeks Network! This week, their kids take to the mic to tell us what they’ve learned about Star Trek from dudes in a Star Trek band! Subscribe now on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, and wherever you download podcasts!

5YM, of course, is every note of music you hear on Rewind, and we couldn’t be more grateful. Go get yourself a copy of all their CDs: Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, Year 4, Spock’s Brain, and The Trouble With Tribbles. It’s easy–head on over to RIGHT NOW and get that physical media in your hands!
