When Captain Lorca is abducted by the Klingons, Burnham must decide whether to go to bat for the tardigrade, which may be sentient, and is certainly in pain in its new role as ship navigator/supercomputer.

It's Voyager 100th episode, and it's a doozy. The episode opens to find Voyager buried under a sheet of ice and a much older Chakotay and Harry Kim executed a daring plan to save it.

If there were an organ responsible for fandom, it would be visibly erect right now.

Exciting podcasts news!

I have been working diligently to get the archive of episodes to our new host at podbean. At the moment, all of Discovery, all of DS9, and everything we have recorded through season 5 of Voyager is now up. Just refresh whatever service you get your podcasts from and you should see them.

I've also updated the Podcasts page at the top with links to our Podbean, Stitcher, and iTunes pages. It's been really great seeing all the downloads for Discovery. More people downloaded the last Discovery episode than the premiere, so that must mean we're getting new listeners, right? And people seem to be downloading the older stuff as it loads, so that's super fun, too. If your listening and have an opinion, comment, disagreement, or just feel like discussing the minutiae of Star Trek like we do, feel free to leave a comment or his us up on twitter at @treknobabblers or our Facebook page.

Stay tuned as after I have consumed another cubic meter of coffee (otherwise known as 1 Janeway), I will start polishing up and uploading the TNG podcasts next.

Voyager finds an eerily accurate simulation of Starfleet Command, right down to Bootby tending the gardens. Chakotay and Tuvok go undercover to find out who or what is behind it.
