This year, Star Trek: Voyager is celebrating its 25th anniversary, so what better way to do that but with a rewatch of the seven-season series? And now, a couple of the stars of the show are stepping up to guide you on that journey back through the Delta Quadrant.
Paris and Kim together again
This morning, Star Trek: Voyager star Robert Duncan McNeill (Tom Paris) announced that he has teamed up with co-star Garrett Wang (Harry Kim) on a new podcast called The Delta Flyers. The new pod promises inside stories as the pair plan to rewatch every episode of Voyager, with the first episode arriving in early May.

Work continues on Voyager documentary
Another thing for fans to be excited about is an upcoming documentary all about Star Trek: Voyager, which is currently being put together by the same team behind the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine documentary What We Left Behind. Shooting began in March on the official Star Trek Cruise. Producer David Zappone shared some details on social media back in March, and has tweeted about the doc as recently as this week.

Zappone’s social media updates indicated he was able to get footage with a number of Voyager stars on the cruise, which was also celebrating the 25th anniversary of the show, including a reunion panel attended by Kate Mulgrew, Garrett Wang, Jeri Ryan, Tim Russ, Roxann Dawson, Ethan Phillips, and Robert Picardo.

STLV celebrating Voyager’s 25th
The next big event for Voyager’s 25th anniversary is planned for the Star Trek Las Vegas convention in August, assuming it doesn’t get postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. The event will include Voyager stars Kate Mulgrew, Jeri Ryan, Robert Beltran, Roxann Dawson, Tim Russ, Ethan Phillips, Robert Picardo, Garrett Wang and Robert Duncan McNeill. In addition to celebrity panels, Creation is also planning special presentations and screenings of the top five favorite Voyager episodes.
Cocktails with Kate
As a way to reach out to her fans during the pandemic, Kate Mulgrew has announced she will begin hosting “virtual happy hours” with fans every Thursday. For each event, Mulgrew will select six fans to join her in a Zoom meeting. Mulgrew asks fans to write 3-4 sentences “about how this period of enforced isolation has changed you, your life, and your perceptions of our society” and send your submission to email@example.com, and she will choose the participants each week.
