To The Journey 87: Timmy Likes Phasers / by Charlynn Schmiedt

Introducing Kids to Voyager.

When asking fellow fans how long they've been watching Star Trek, "I've been watching it since I was a kid" is a common response. Many of us became cognizant of Star Trek when we were quite young. The franchise means a great deal to us as we grew up with it. Now those of us with children are introducing Star Trek to our kids, in hopes of propagating the next generation of Star Trek fans. 

In this episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan take a suggestion from a listener and name the top five episodes of Voyager they would show to a young child, in hopes that they would be intrigued and entertained but not be subjected to content that would push the rating above PG.

Running Time: 30 minutes 25 seconds
