Photo of the Day: Star Trek Voyager Boys Reunion January 18, 2012

by Anthony Pascale , Filed under: Celebrity,VOY , trackback

More than a decade after the show went off the air, the actors from Star Trek: Voyager still like to get together in Los Angeles for a dinner. And just in time for Voyager’s 17th anniversary, actor Robert Duncan McNeill shared a photo from this week’s gathering of the Voyager boys (sans one). Check it out below 


Voyager Boys Reunion

This week is is the 17th anniversary. What better time for the boys of Voyager to get together for a reunion? Actually the actors from Star Trek: Voyager have been getting together regularly, but for the gathering last night Robert Duncan McNeill sent out a photo via Twitter. We can see Garrett Wang (Kim), Robert Beltran (Chakotay), Ethan Phillips (Neelix) Robbie McNeill (Paris) and Robert Picardo (The Doctor). If you are wondering where Tim Russ is, Robbie tells TrekMovie that he usually shows up for their dinners, but wasn’t available this week.

@RobbieMcDunc: Voyager traditional boys steak dinner… A farewell to Neelix who’s moving back to NYC! We’ll miss him!!!

Voyager Actress Jeri Ryan wasn’t  there either, but she did retweet the photo saying "Aww, my boys…!! <3"

Happy anniversary to Voyager and thanks for the memories guys

Tuvok, as a Vulcan, can’t eat steak. Vegetarian and all.

I always had a soft spot for Voyager. I thought it was a good balance to DS9 at the time. In a way, both series complimented eachother. DS9 had the story arc and was written more to evoke a sense of conflict and tension. Perhaps a precursor of sorts to Galactica. Voyager worked with standalone episodes and ensured the sense of security around the “family” its strength and enduring hope of returning home. It’s great to fall back on the classic feel-good-by-the-end trek.

Once again we see the true core of Star Trek: FAMILY!!

4. Craiger - January 18, 2012

They used more technobable to save the day then any other series. I did like it when they finally made contact with the Alpha Quadarant.

I know some people complain about Voyager (that it didn’t live up to its’ potential, Janeway wasn’t a good captain, etc.) but I share your fondness for it as well; it’s the first Trek series I watched regularly.

6. jas_montreal - January 18, 2012

Robert Beltran is fake.

7. rm10019 - January 18, 2012

So good to see them all enjoying their time together.

8. JordanHoffman - January 18, 2012

I have nothing to say except “this is awesome.”

9. Rick Sternbach - January 18, 2012

Raising a margarita the the whole crew!

10. Rick Sternbach - January 18, 2012

TO the whole crew!

11. MC1 Doug - January 18, 2012

It’s been 10 years since the show went off the air?????

Where has the time gone?

12. The Retroist - January 18, 2012

Would love to sit in on one of these dinners.

13. Paul Belfi - January 18, 2012

Too bad the surviving TOS series cast cant be like this… TNG cast is still very close from what I understand… it’s sad.

14. Michael Hall - January 18, 2012

@ 7: agreed. I never was much of a Voyager fan–to this day, there are episodes I’ve never seen, which can’t be said of any other Trek series–but the show did turn out some decent stories on occasion, and in any event it’s good to see these guys enjoying themselves this way. It hardly seems possible that it’s been seventeen years. (And Mr. Sternbach, I’ve been an admirer of your work even much longer than that.)

15. N - January 18, 2012

I thought the Voyager cast hated each other, or Robert Beltran hated everyone or something. I love Voyager, I grew up with it and DS9. Can’t believe I was barely hitting double figures when it ended.

16. VZX - January 18, 2012

Wow. So awesome! I’ll raise my beer to them!

This is really, really cool. I wonder, do the Voyager girls get together at all?

17. Ziro - January 18, 2012

awesome! Hope we’ll see a more complete reunion picture in may this year when almost all of the cast we’ll appear at a UK convention

18. MJ - January 18, 2012

What is that loser Garret Wang doing at this reunion? He is a bitter malcontent who has continually been negative on his Trek days, thinking that Trek owes him something. What a hypocrite for him to show his face with other cast members. I bet the other actors were whispering “a-hole” under their breath.

19. sean - January 18, 2012

I guess Garret shat’nered in your cereal, eh?

20. N - January 18, 2012

@18 Bet you any money you’ll find more complaints from Robert Beltran

21. Horatio - January 18, 2012

Imagine going out to eat one night and looking over at the table next to you and seeing those guys!

My wife would have to scrape me off the floor!

22. Red Dead Ryan - January 18, 2012

Nah, Garrett Wang has been angry that he never got to direct an episode, has suggested that “Voyager” should have gone the “Scrubs” in space comedic route, and stated he wanted to punch William Shatner in the stomach because Shatner apparently didn’t recognize him.

Wang was also late for work numerous times during “Voyager”s early seasons.

23. Montreal_Paul - January 18, 2012

Is it me, or is Robert Duncan McNeill starting to look like Drew Carey?

Actually watching Voyager right now. It was very well written and I did enjoy it a great deal. It had great story telling and I really liked the premise.

24. cleverclogs - January 18, 2012

I would love VOY to come to blu-ray!

25. The ste - January 18, 2012

This is awesome. Really amazing to see the guys still meeting up. Family is so right.

26. CarlG - January 18, 2012

@13: Agreed, feuds just make me sad. I always want the people who work on stuff that I like to enjoy making it as much as I enjoy watching it.

27. CarlG - January 18, 2012

Robert Picardo is the only one who’s barely changed, he IS a frigging hologram! :)

28. Paul Belfi - January 18, 2012

@26: Well said – agree COMPLETEY

29. ilker - January 18, 2012

We love you guys! Cheers :)

30. Anthony Thompson - January 19, 2012

Probably the best series since TOS. It’s great that they all get along so well. Garrett is a lot of fun at the conventions. : )

31. danielcraigsmywookiebitchnow - January 19, 2012

Thats soo cool, I eat with my work colleagues at the Palm Resturaunt on santa monica blvd aswell every week, very cool!!

32. Snickleboom - January 19, 2012

I think Robert Beltran took issue with the writing and story lines on the show, not his fellow actors. Can’t say I blame him. 10 years is a long time to reflect and look back on something that was a big part of your life. Its really nice to see them all together like that. Robbie McNeill was such a young, baby-faced guy when Voyager started and now he’s the father of a 21 year old woman…sheesh!! Where has time gone?!?!

33. The Commodore - January 19, 2012

I liked Voyager from the start. I liked all the technobabble. IMHO Voyager tried to be more TNG than TNG. And I liked it. I still like it of course.

34. captain_neill - January 19, 2012

Happy anniversary to Voyager, I loved Voyager and still enjoy watching it. I am always defending it as a lot of friends did not like it.

It is not my fav Trek and some characters were underused, but I still think there is great stuff in the show.

35. captain_neill - January 19, 2012



Robert Beltran has been vocal about the show and given how little they gave Chakotay I can’t say I blame him. Watching the DVD special features it is celar he was a lot of fun on the set.

36. Neil Douglas - January 19, 2012

Great articles the last few days

37. be flat - January 19, 2012

Blasphemy alert:

Been rewatching Voyager since last month (I actually had no idea that an anniversary was due). Still my favorite series (actually VOY created my interest in Trek). Having watched TNG after VOY I must admit that something was missing in TNG. TNG lacked a main “premise” or sth – VOY had this “journey home”. TNG was just about exploration – I had no feeling of series “progressing” through the seasons and the finale seemed very “unexpected”. For me, VOY is TNG done right. (TNG started off with very lame episodes – the Bynars? – come on. How lame was that?) The Doctor was a far more interesting and developed character than Data was. I could go on… but instead: I won’t.

38. Trek Or Treat - January 19, 2012

Love to see photos like this. It’s none of my business but I’m glad these guys still get together and get along unlike the TOS crew. I doubt there are “Voyager Girl” get togethers like this. My guess is there’s no tight relationship between Kate and Jeri. That’s what I’ve gathered from conventions and from the (admittedly often full of BS) internet. I’d like to think Roxann and maybe Jennifer Lien are still tight with everyone.

Wouldn’t you love to be a fly on the wall during one of these? I wonder if they talk a lot about the VOY glory days?

Hear Hear to all of the above who defend Voyager. Was it perfect? Absolutely not. But I’ve always had a soft spot for it too.

39. I'm Dead Jim! - January 19, 2012

Voyager is not my favorite series but I think if I had walked into that restaurant and saw them all at the table like that, I might have wet myself, a little.

40. J.A.G.T. - January 19, 2012

So Robert Beltran is having a Martini? – He’s doing it RIGHT!

41. Niall Johnson - January 19, 2012

Can’t wait to see them in Vegas this coming August!

42. Commodore Mike of the Terran Empire - January 19, 2012

I like Voyager. They had some really great Eps. Some not so good. But the ones that were on were simply fantastic. Good to see everyone having a good time these many years later.

43. ST:EXP - January 19, 2012

They’re all sitting around at dinner making fun of the freaks they had to shake hands with at the convention.

Funny Nelix became the slender one of the group.

44. Desstruxion - January 19, 2012


45. Steve-o - January 19, 2012

I dont know that i could contain myself if i was serving at the restaurant and turned to look a my latest table to find the heroes of my childhood..

I’d prolly faint.

46. Scott - January 19, 2012

I was more of a TNG fan, but my favorite character on Voyager was Robert Picardo as “The Doctor”. I loved his sense of humor!!

47. Admiral Archer's Prize Beagle - January 19, 2012

Oooh, Cake.

Sorry, – easily distracted.

(I like cake!)

48. Admiral Archer's Prize Beagle - January 19, 2012

Six layers….

49. Brock - January 19, 2012

Voyager was a very flawed series with poor showrunning and little sense of direction/originality, but yeah, it is a very entertaining show to watch if you can overlook all its problems.

50. Orb of the Emissary - January 19, 2012

Aawww, I miss Voyager! It was awesome! I’ve been re-watching Star Trek again (all 5 series), and I’m up to season 6 of Voyager. May it Live Long and Prosper!!

51. sean - January 19, 2012


I think you’re confusing ‘blasphemy’ with ‘insanity’. It’s okay, it happens.

52. Rela - January 19, 2012

Voyager is my favorite star trek series. I miss Voyager! I can not believe that so many years have passed.

53. DS9 IN PRIME TIME - January 19, 2012

i love voyager!! Started watching it again about 2 weeks ago with my girlfriend. Were on season 2 disk 2 now. just got done watching 3 eppisodes in a row this morning :)

54. Seneschall - January 19, 2012

Just got all 7 seasons of Voyager. Once I get some time, I’ll rewatch the entire thing, one every day, perhaps 2 on the weekends with a good Merlot.

And Robbie McNeill looks more like a science professor now, rather than the loose cannon pilot of Voyager & the Delta Flyer.

55. Hat Rick - January 19, 2012

I think that Voyager is the red-headed stepchild of Trek (unless that role is taken by Star Trek: Enterprise, in which case I would concede that it is the auburn-headed stepchild, instead).

Voyager, like Star Trek: Enterprise, is rather underestimated.

Like good Merlot (a red wine), Voyager ages well.

I am “reddy” for more Voyager. I intend to watch it underneath a redwood tree, or in Redding or similarly red-themed city, underneath the good old red, white, and blue waving readily in the breeze.

Or a Federation flag. Whatever.

56. Rico - January 19, 2012

Awesome picture! Glad these guys have managed to stay in touch.

57. Joe Siegler - January 20, 2012

Surprised we haven’t seen Robert Beltran complain about something connected to Star Trek yet at this.

58. Joe Siegler - January 20, 2012

Also, Tom Paris looks a lot like some of Randy Quaid’s looks in this picture.

59. *drooling* - January 20, 2012

Wonderful to see almost all male cast members having fun and sharing memories. You rock, guys!!!!

See you in Europe soon? :-))

60. Paris Fan - January 20, 2012

Too bad a Voyager reunion movie would be logistically impossible. The way the characters’ arc went — and unlike any of the other Trek characters, they DID have arcs — they would likely have scattered in different directions upon return to the Alpha Quadrant. Thanks to Robbie MacNeill for tweeting this — really great to see that reunions are possible at least in RL.

61. royal girl - January 21, 2012

Hello trek fans. It’ good to see them together again. If they read
this I want the cast of Voyager to know that their character was believable
and I was well entertained for 7 years. Luv you all esp Capt Janway!

62. Hat Rick - January 22, 2012

I think that every one of the actors in the photos could appear in a Voyager reunion movie. Especially if the events of that movie happened ten years after the series conclusion.

[/smart-alecky mode]

Seriously, though — most of the actors don’t look that different. Wang, for example, looks relatively the same, as does Picardo.

I happened to catch Picardo in one of those crime procedurals / lawyer shows in current production — I think it was a CBS show — a few days ago, and he played someone testifying on the stand. His profession? What else? A doctor. I thought that was a kick in the pants.

63. be flat - January 22, 2012

#51: Wow, that was really inspiring. You definitely convinced me and I’m forced to withdraw everything I said.

64. =/\= - January 22, 2012

I’m not much of a Trekkie; I only like Voyager. But Voyager is SOOOO different from the others, and it actually has a purpose- getting to the Alpha Quadrant. Not just going around the Quadrant doing the usual business. Voyager is lively, entertaining, and almost makes me want to stop my career and invent holodecks so we can all experience the awesomeness of Voyager.
As for a movie… DEFINITELY. Granted, it could be tricky; Paris wouldn’t look at all the same. But I am holding out for a Voyager movie, and I will be the first to submit ideas for it. Species 8472 attacks Neelix’s colony in the Delta Quadrant, maybe?

65. Phil - January 23, 2012

For the performers on the show who voiced complaints, it is possible to have problems with your job but get along with your co-workers….

66. wudang - January 23, 2012

Truly shocking to see Beltran there! I thought he hated everything trek related. I don’t recall anyone forcing him into some sort of indentured actor servitude, where he had to play that character.

67. RedG - March 26, 2012

Great show and all but that piece of cake looks delish! is represented by Gorilla Nation. Please contact Gorilla Nation for ad rates, packages and general advertising information.
