To The Journey 84: Even Nerds Can Be Fit / by Charlynn Schmiedt

Voyager as the "Soundtrack to Your Life."

Star Trek fans are well known for their loyalty to the franchise, and their devotion is a part of why the shows still have life today. Many fans started watching some incarnation of Trek at a young age and will remain fans for life. Tristan and Char are no different, and in this episode of To The Journey they talk about how their teenage years were influenced by Voyager. We discuss some of our favorite memories of how Voyager came to be intertwined with their life experiences (and vice-versa) and became a part of the "soundtrack to their lives." Listen on and hear about how "Threshold" influenced Char's life (no, really), find out which episode resonates with Tristan as the point when he knew he was locked in as a Trek fan, and much more.
