Tread Perilously — Star Trek VOY: Timeless

Tread Perilously’s Star Trek month continues with an episode of Star Trek: Voyager called “Timeless.”

Fifteen years after the U.S.S. Voyager crashed on Planet Hoth, Harry Kim and Chakotay steal Borg technology to prevent the accident which took the lives of their shipmates. Meanwhile, fifteen years in the past, Harry prepares to test a new quantum slipstream drive. If successful, the Voyager will return to the Alpha Quadrant within moments. Will Harry be able to transmit badly need math to his past self? Will Starfleet arrest the him for high crimes against the Federation? Will Chakotay sell out his ethics to collaborate again? And will Captain Geordi LaForge see honor in what the Voyager survivors intended to do?

Justin learns why Harry gets so few feature stories. Erik immediately gets frustrated by another Voyager episode in which time travel negates catastrophe. Alex Kurtzman’s stewardship of the brand leads to an examination of Federation/Romulan relations. The pair debate whether or not the episode’s cold open is good. They also try to figure out how a modernized Harry Kim would work. It somehow leads to a discussion of Wil Wheaton’s teeny-bopper moment. Erik recasts Neelix as the true Vulcan Kolinahr test and Justin calls out Starfleet for its lack of sexual harassment guidelines.
