Keep up with all the Star Trek event news and reports at TrekMovie.com.
Seven of Nine should get her own show.
She had a interesting life after Voyager and before Picard.
What will she do after Picard… It remains to be seen.
I would prefer a Voyager show, including all of them again, as a family. if they had the unique experience of being lost for 7 years, they must be very close to each other. Would be cool to see some action and fun in the search for Neelix. He still far away, right?
She certainly should! She’s one of my favorite characters on Picard and I love she is as feisty as ever lol. Can’t wait to see her again next season.
I agree — SHE CARRIED VOYAGER.
Voyager without her was pretty much unwatchable. Janeway was annoying, Chakotey an afterthought, Tuvok underutilized, and that irritating doctor hologram…don’t get me started. LOL This is all just my personal opinion, of course.
Picard and what that overrated pompous fool Chabon (“he won a Pulitzer though”) wrote was catastrophic for Seven’s character and the growth she had in Voyager. She would be better off back as a drone in the Collective.
Buh, she’s edgy and cool, downing shots, vaporising people and phaser toting in this interesting, dark Trek universe…
“overrated pompous fool Chabon (“he won a Pulitzer though”) ”
Well which is it? You seem confused?
I feel like the Voyager cast get better with age. Seems like a real family at times, very much TNG lite.
I agree that both the show and the cast have aged well, but have to object to the “TNG lite” labeling.
Voyager was very much it’s own show, with a mandate to get out and see new worlds and civilizations, away from the politics of the Federation. While the objective was to get home, there was an incredible amount of exploration on the way.
It wasn’t my own favourite Trek show in its first-run, but watching it with our kids, and seeing their genuine love and admiration for the characters and the technology, has given me a great deal of respect for the series.
Totally true. I was originally a STNG Fan and later learned to appreciate Voyager, DS9, and Enterprise with the same respect…same now with the new shows. I have my favorite show, but now I appreciate all of them very much.
Voyager is a real Family, all of them together, wish we can see them together one more time.
I will celebrate with joy to see them on the screen again. A wiser Captain Janeway. The Doc scolding Seven for her tough choices. Belana and Tom with their human klingon kids. Tuvok and T’Pel with their kids.
A great opportunity for the producers to improve Chakotay and Harry. Both were amazing amid the poor writing and character development.
It’s amazing how well Voyager has aged TG47. Like so many I like it more today than when it originally ran (and I liked it then too). And maybe it is partly being disappointed with the new stuff too but I just love all the fun episodes the show has even if its still flawed. But its mandate on exploration is what makes it a great show to watch! Voyager will never be forgotten and will continue to be a bit part of Star Trek fandom. I’m really hoping we see a few more characters show up on Picard in the future too. Seven has to have a reunion with someone. ;)
I agree albatrosity. The Voyager cast seems very tight knit these days. I’m glad Mulgrew worked things out with Ryan and its fun to see everyone together. I listened to one of the new Delta Flyers podcast with Garret Want and Robert McNeil. It’s obvious they become just as close friends in real life as their characters were. And they are a lot of fun to listen to on that podcast. I don’t plan to listen to all 170 episodes lol but I’m going to listen when they talk about some of the big key episodes or my favorites of the series.
I disagree. I don’t think Mulgrew and Ryan get along beyond smiling and pretending for Star Trek events — as a fan, I can’t get behind how Mulgrew treated Ryan for years — that was just so wrong (and trust me, this is why we will never see Mulgrew on Picard outside perhaps a single cameo at some point). And the backstabbing stuff that the entitled jerk Garrett Wang has pulled over the years against Mulgrew, Berman and Braga — those aren’t the kind of things that are easily forgiven.
I give them all credit for playing nice for fan events, but the acrimony in this group is more like what we had in TOS group. This group is not like a “real family” like TNG and DS9 casts truly are.
For the sake of COVID and fan good will though, it’s very nice to see them doing this.
Please, tng is no where near in the same class as Voyager!! And it’s the same reason why I won’t watch that dumb show, picard. They could of come up with a better title than that pompus idot,who cried his eyes out to be in another StarTrek series. I would hope they will have enough sense to have Voyager’s cast in their own show again! They deserve it!
Somewhere a pig just flew for the first time.
If Jeri Ryan and Kate Mulgrew still do not get along, Jeri definitely wished Kate a happy birthday on instagram. Maybe it was a fake nicety but I dont think she would have went through the trouble. I choose to believe that one of them chose to be the bigger person and extended an olive branch to the other. I cant say for sure which one initiated it, but I believe they have an amicable relationship now. I still dont think they will braid each others hair, but I do think they exchange cordial verbage when in each others presence. If not, then they are still great actresses! Because when those cameras rolled on the set I would have never known there was any animosity between the two. Still my favorite Star Trek show.
25 years? I’m feeling old now. Stop counting after..5 years. Just say its the 5th anniversary of the 5th anniversary of Voyager. :) I’ve always enjoyed the show during its initial run. I think it was a good character ensemble show although I would have liked maybe a few less Seven of Nine centered episodes and threw in more storylines fleshing out the other supporting cast like Harry Kim.
With the success of the newer Trek series, it should be easier to do after Trek shows for DS9 and Voyager. Of course, you couldn’t get everybody together.
Poor Jennifer Lien. First booted from the show, then ignored for the 25th reunion, while Kate Mulgrew says, “the entire cast is assembling”.
You apparently haven’t heard about her sad mental illness and and associated criminal history?
All the more reason to include her. Someone really needs to check in on Jennifer Lien…
Perhaps they did and she declined. Or, it may not be appropriate to invite her if she doesn’t have representation.
This kind of event may be more than she is up for, and they would have to be respectful of that.
A better question is, “Where’s Tuvok?” I didn’t see Tim Russ mentioned. Not the entire cast without Tuvok.
I’m hoping it was a mistake. Russ should be there.
Love Jennifer Lien, hope she was invited. Agree they should not say “entire crew assembling” without her.
She probably can’t be within 500 yards of school children.
Wow will definitely be watching this if I can! I’m really loving these live virtual events they are now doing these days. The First Contact one with Frakes discussing the movie was great and this sounds like a lot of fun too to see everyone back. As someone who has only been to two conventions in their entire life I prefer something like this more and I don’t have to travel. ;)
I love Voyager. I didn’t get to see it until years after it aired, and immediately did not understand why so many people seemed to dislike it. Still don’t, but you hear fewer of those nowadays.
The same thing happened with DS9 and Enterprise. The same thing is happening with Discovery and Picard. We the Fans always complain. =P
Finally, something I will want to watch. My favorite Star Trek series for sure.
Hey guys, I just wanted to congratulate you on having you own podcast. I really hope I will be able to meet you this August in LasVegas. I’ve never been to a StarTrek Convention in my life and I would like to before I die. Take care!!
This sounds cool. I watched all of Voyager during it’s initial run, and found it to generally be a solid, entertaining show. My only gripe at the time was that it was all a little to ‘clean,’ for a lone ship stranded on the other side of the galaxy. A little more grit would have been nice, a bit more suffering.
No Kes? LOL
These reunitings are great fun. I certainly don’t reject them or dislike them. They don’t reignite my enthusiasm for Star Trek and make me put faith in plans for the new series though. My faith that it will be anything like the old way evaporated long ago.
What, personally, I want is a Star Trek done in the traditional way with positive outlooks, with good level attitudes, and with no political agendas of the current era. Perhaps a sense of innocence and kindness in all despite there, perhaps, being some level of sinister elements in the galaxy.
Star Trek is not about the present days TV/Movie tropes of Darkness and constant grey areas of Right Vs Wrong. No real goodness or light in the universe… Either you adhere to the narrative of what Star Trek is and always has been or make an entirely new IP and stop stealing Star Trek’s ID to make a quick buck.
Yeah, you make an interesting point, I often say that Trek doesn’t need to conform to modern TV tropes, the modern TV tropes need to conform to Trek’s optimism.
Is Tuvok not going to be there? I didn’t see his name in this list of characters from Voyager.
I hated Deep Space Nine Star Trek Voyager was my favorite Next Generation so so wasn’t that crazy about it loved every character on Voyager I wish it would come back
