Andy and Jessica talk:

  • The moments vs the plots
  • Jeri Taylor
  • Star Trek fostering careers
  • First impressions of Captain Janeway, Tuvok and Chakotay (Chakotay!)
  • Indian? Native? Indigenous?
  • The new doctor and holosuites, holodecks and holoships
  • Neelix & Kes
  • The Caretaker. Oh, that crazy evil Caretaker.
  • Wouldn't be a pilot without the Prime Directive
  • DS9 & Voyager overlap
  • STLV! We'll be going in 2018 and hope to see you all there!

Andy’s Suggestions

  • Parallax (Season 1, episode 3): We assign some crew positions and see B'elanna become Chief Engineer.
  • Time & Again (Season 1, episode 4): What do we do when life simply stops on a planet and we might have the opportunity to save them?
  • Learning Curve (Season 1, episode 16): Tuvok sets up a Maquis training program and gets a lesson in leadership.
