Tread Perilously — Star Trek Voyager: Living Witness

Tread Perilously’s attempt to tread safely continues with the Star Trek: Voyager episode called “Living Witness.”

Seven hundred years after the Voyager encountered the Kyrian civilization, an archeologist tells the tale of how the Federation warship unleashed a bio-weapon on the planet in exchange for a way home. The incident led to lasting tension with the nearby Vaskan civilization as the latter now occupies the former’s homeworld. And just when it seems the Kyrian archeologist has learned all he can about the Voyager incident, he discovers a back-up of the Emergency Medical Hologram. The reactivated Doctor presents a substantially different version of their shared history. Will he dismiss the Doctor as fake news?

Seven of Wine‘s Jacqueline Lopez joins Erik and Justin to discuss the notion of the Dark Federation, smiling Vulcans and why Tom Paris sucks in all realities. Justin makes fun of the aliens with nipples on their foreheads. Jacqueline explains the different pronunciations of “Chakotay.” Justin considers the horror of waking up 700 years in the future. Erik tries to find the source of his Tom Paris hatred. Jacqueline introduces the term “Bragadocious” and reveals her favorite single hour of Voyager. Also, Erik avoids calling out Rick Berman for a change.
