A Star Trek podcast by two guys who are a bit embarrassed to have a Star Trek podcast. After reviewing all of Star Trek: The Next Generation and DS9, we're reviewing Star Trek: Voyager from beginning to end. Check out The Greatest Discovery, our spinoff about all the new Star Trek series!
When Neelix and Tom Paris are fighting, television law stipulates they must be forced into a close-quarters mission together. But when their shuttle crashes on a planet with a rough exterior, it’ll be up to Neelix to make something out of what’s left over. How many words do you know? What’s the best musical instrument for a bum-out? Did someone forget to fry the puppet? It’s the episode that’s harder to pull off than the average home viewer might realize!
When Kes’s second birthday party gets interrupted by another nebula, it honestly comes as a shock that the thing that gets messed up isn’t the holodeck. But when the crew keep running into Lieutenant Baxter in the ship’s labyrinthine hallways, they start making beret face. What’s the legal drinking age for Ocampa? Does saying, ‘ahh!’ count as a speaking part? What character on the show has the most Garbage Pail Kid name? It’s an episode with a…significant…comment from Adam Pranica.
When Ensign Kim wakes up in a strange bed, his day begins like many others. But when his sense of reality is challenged by the owner of a coffee shop, he’ll have to decide whether or not to leave the Delaney sisters behind forever. What happens to un-spent sexual equity? Why not use the entire Star Trek buffalo? Where do you even buy a changing partition? It’s the episode that’s so full of good ideas, it might break Star Trek.
When Kes’s body start’s reacting to the presence of horny aliens trying to bang the ship, Neelix tries to make the situation all about himself. But when the Okampa goes through premature puberty, the implications of fraternization among the crew start to become a pressing matter. Why aren’t we checking for nubbins? Who’s taking the odds of Ensign Wildman surviving this experience? Why does Neelix wear so many layers? It’s the episode we recorded while standing up in a closet with a sailor.
When Doc Holoday wakes up to an empty ship, his workload increases dramatically. But when Lt. Barclay appears, the doctor must choose between accepting his circumstances as real, or trusting the worst possible person imaginable to be his reality sherpa. Are fry pans a renewable resource? Who would put Barclay in charge of anything? How hard would it be to live in a charade forever? It’s the episode that’s escapes the haunted house the first try!
When Chakotay is taken prisoner for abducting a 13 year old, the punishment seems like it might be worse than the crime. But when a trail of starship wreckage leads the Voyager to him, they’ll come dangerously close to allying with Kazon in the process of conducting their rescue...
When the Voyager crew thaws out some people they’ve found in a Delta Quadrant cryogenic chamber, it turns out they’re just as far from home as the crew is. But once they meet the other inhabitants of the planet, everybody begins to warm up to the idea of staying there for good. Does Voyager have enough landing struts? What is Tuvok’s job? Is there any on-set jargon unknown to us? It’s the episode that will result in the total destruction of your worldview!
When a Maquis crewman pulls a rotten gelpack out of a wall, Tuvok takes great umbrage with his can-do attitude. But when the captain decides that attitude needs an adjustment, it will be the Vulcan security chief’s job to bring a rabble up to lower deck level. What about going to a chip way to ship? How does one deal with butt sweat on an away mission? What could disappoint Neelix more than having his lungs removed? It’s the episode where we finally realize this is our job now
When James Sloyan comes aboard and points to his character’s name, Neelix is consumed with emotion as he has to share the Voyager with a war criminal. But when that man might be the key to Neelix’s own survival, the Morale Officer will have to swallow his pride to help save his people. Is Neelix spilling soup due to trauma? Is he part Tamarian? Why weren’t the simulations this gross? It’s the episode that has an extra minute of cold open for no reason at all!
When the Vidians return, their custom order BLT does not respect the original vision. But when Chakotay goes to the kitchen to see what’s going on, what he finds there will have a negative impact on their food safety rating. Is there anything on the dark web worth paying for with a credit card? Does Kronos have a top-40 radio station? Is “finding out” the only possible option for “fucking around”? It’s the episode that’s put on a little crooked.
