The crew debates whether the eponymous chute is actually more of a duct, Tom and Harry get the clamp, and Janeway makes deals with terrorists for some reason.
Janeway does her best Ripley impression, Neelix gets gooped, and The Doctor botches his first away mission. Featuring Harry on jazz flute probably. And a new shipping game!
While Mario was on an away mission to Comic-Con, we put together a clip show of deleted scenes from episodes 1-6! We explore what would happen if holodecks were real, the proclivities of certain face-tattoo’d crew members, and human-avian relations. Note that the safety protocols are disabled for this episode (in other words, super NSFW).
Mario found a for-reals murder mystery episode. It’s Tom’s word against the victim’s, and Tuvok’s on the case! A bird-woman vamps.
It’s a Janeway/Chakotay ship and Jenn is the only one onboard with it. Acting Captain Tuvok can’t get no respect.
Quantum Anarchist Jim recommended Voyager season 2, episode 16, “Meld”, where Tuvok gets inside the mind of a murderer and struggles to resist killing Neelix.
On Chief Philosophy Officer Lou’s recommendation, we all watched Neelix struggle with an existential crisis in Voyager season 4, episode 12, “Mortal Coil”. Chakotay wasn’t much help.
Temporal Timekeeper Mario’s suggestion (Voyager season 5, episode 14, “Bliss”) is discussed at length by the crew. Or is it all a pitcher plant fever dream??? (Don’t worry, it’s real)
The crew kicks off the podcast by discussing Holodeck Programmer Jenn’s recommendation of Voyager season 2, episode 23, “The Thaw”, and addresses such questions as: can the crew conquer fear itself? And why would you ever plug Harry into an Inception machine?
