This week on Standard Orbit, host Zach Moore is joined by Tim Robertson, host of The Observers Notebook and Generations: A Star Trek Podcast to discuss NASA's Voyager program - the inspiration for V'Ger from The Motion Picture.

Was Voyager's mission really to learn all that was learnable? Why were there only two Voyager probes and not the six Star Trek promised us? How much longer will the Voyagers be operational? Science fiction meets science fact in this week's Standard Orbit, boldly listen!
