    11: Captain Harry Kim On The Bridge

    11: Captain Harry Kim On The Bridge

    In the latest of our character-focused episodes, Frank Wu joins Jean to talk about Harry Kim. Frank is a four-time Hugo Award winning artist, who recently designed the bookcover for the Klingon translation of The Art of War. He is a super enthusiastic fan of all things Star Trek. We touch on some of the issues related to Asian representation in Kim’s character. Kim is possibly the least upwardly-mobile Starfleet officer ever, having spent at least 7 years as an ensign. For this episode, we watch “Nightingale” (S7E8), in which Harry gets his chance to take over as captain of...

    10: Commander Chakotay and The Kazon Kid

    10: Commander Chakotay and The Kazon Kid

    Podcaster and comic con host Moisés Chiullán joins Jean to talk about Star Trek’s first Native American main character and a great first officer, Chakotay. We also chose to focus on the episode “Initiations,” in which Chakotay is ensnared in a Kazon rite of passage, to pay tribute to Aron Eisenberg, best known for portraying Nog on Deep Space Nine for seven seasons. Eisenberg passed away this fall at the age of 50. As Robert Beltran noted, “We both had a good time. Aron’s a lot of fun to work with. He’s got a wide range and he can do...

    9: Tuvok Defying Gravity

    Our guest this week is prolific podcaster from Trek.fm, Justin Oser, who co-hosts Earl Grey and The Line, the latter focused on the new Picard series. Given Seven Of Nine’s return in Picard, Justin’s been rewatching Voyager and recently watched one of our favorite episodes, Gravity (S5E13). Rewatching together gave us a chance to talk about another favorite character, the Vulcan Tuvok, played by Tim Russ, and one of the great series guest stars, Lori Petty, whose character falls in love with him....

    8: A Conspiracy of One

    Photonic fleas, be free! In this episode, Australian engineer and podcaster John Chidgey comes aboard to make the case for The Voyager Conspiracy (S6E9) as one of the must-watch Voyager episodes on Jean’s Voyager Viewer’s Guide. He argues that it is a crucial moment in the relationship between Captain Janeway and Seven Of Nine, whereas Jean labeled it as a “skip, unless you’re interested.” (Bonus: there are some great moments for Janeway-Chakotary shippers.)...

    7: Photons Be Free

    On this episode, Jean talks to Barbara Greenberg, a publishing professional who provides editorial services to publishing houses and independent authors, an avid sci-fi reader, and a huge fan of Star Trek since 1966. Barbara and Jean met in the 1990s, when they both worked in book publishing and have been BFFs ever since. Because of Jean has been laid up by knee surgery, Barbara traveled to Portland from NYC to spend a week helping out. This episode, the first one since Jean’s mishap in Trieste, was recorded with a makeshift setup on the bed. For this episode, we chose...

    6: The Other Endgame

    6: The Other Endgame

    On our previous episode, guest Kathy Campbell came on to discuss the pilot of Voyager, “Caretaker.” On this episode, Guy English is here to discuss the finale, “Endgame.” Guy was recently a panelist on The Incomparable’s episode about what makes a good (or bad) TV series ending. Turns out, we both like the Voyager finale better than we remembered. (Spoiler alert: all our episodes have spoilers, but Endgame is double trouble. You have been warned.)...
