Don't forget your box of tissues for this episode of To The Journey, as hosts Kay Shaw, Zachary Fruhling, and Suzanne Williamson compare and contrast the tearjerker episodes "Real Life" (Star Trek: Voyager) and "The Offspring" (Star Trek: The Next Generation). From the respective motivations of The Doctor and Lt. Commander Data in exploring family life, to lessons learned from love and loss, Kay, Zachary, and Suzanne laugh and cry together as they discuss these emotionally charged, fan-favorite episodes of Voyager and The Next Generation.
