To The Journey 74: Borgified Codpiece / by Charlynn Schmiedt

Drone Commentary. 

In 2014, where serialized storytelling is the norm on TV, sometimes a self-contained episode is refreshing. Voyager’s “Drone” fits that bill with its concise beginning, middle, and end—all in 45 satisfying minutes. In this episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan bring you a commentary for the fifth-season episode “Drone.” We discuss 29th Century Borg attire, the merits of episodic television done right, and how Jeri Ryan’s phenomenal performance episode gives us all the feels.

Running Time: 54 minutes 19 seconds
