To The Journey 130: Dust to Dust / by Charlynn Schmiedt

"Ashes to Ashes" Rewrite.

Hey, do you remember that ensign who died three years ago? No? It's okay, neither do we. But guess what, she's back! And she looks nothing like her former self! What the heck is going on? 

The above is the essential premise for "Ashes to Ashes," a Voyager Season Six story that had several interesting ideas behind it, but fell short of its potential. In this episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan rewrite "Ashes to Ashes" and reveal how they would take this kernel of an idea and make it pop into something with more drama, emotion, and overall intrigue.

Running Time: 49 minutes 29 seconds
