Episode 173: The Best Voyager Episode You’ll Never See

CBS and Viacom have finally reunited and Star Trek is primed for some truly big things. So, what does that future look like for the movies and TV shows as Paramount hopes to do for Trek what Marvel and Star Wars has done for their franchises? We’ll break it down.

And thanks to @TrekDocs, we got a look at Michael Piller’s never-produced but awesome plan for Voyager’s Season 4 cliffhanger featuring Q, Chakotay hunting down Torres, and Janeway fighting the Dominion with DS9. Yup, it’s a good one.


And our Red Shirts beam in from TNG this week, just before being literally blown out of existence. So replicate yourself a cup of Janeway’s coffee and listen now!

The Shat is a force to be reckoned with, and he’s returned to TR3 for a chat about Star Trek livin’. In our discussion, the man who helped to create Captain Kirk recalls his first Trek convention -- and the accompanying fear of the event -- talks about the Quentin Tarantino Star Trek movie, looks back at his greatest regret from directing Star Trek V: The Final Frontier, and much more.


Then we get to our Red Shirt of the Week, and this is someone who hits home, and hard, for Jim Kirk. Even if it’s just a temporary death. Yes, those count too!

So put on your TMP-era wrist communicator, remind those around you that you need your pain, and listen to the latest episode of TR3!

With the Star Trek Las Vegas convention happening right now, we spoke to the once and future Riker about the return of the character on the Picard show and more. Frakes gives us an update not just on William T. but also on what he’s directing next, he recounts his earliest (most hilarious?) con experience, and he also looks back on the difficult time in his life when Hollywood put him in “director jail.”


And then, of course, we have our Red Shirt; this week’s unlucky soul is someone near and dear to Riker, in fact…

So walk like you’re trying to knock the wall down with your head, take a seat Riker-style, and listen to the latest episode of TR3!
