Star Trek: Voyager's Two-Parters, Edition 1
It's a hot time in the Star Trek Universe - the trio talks about their hopes and excitement for the upcoming 2020 Star Trek shows.
They also look at the long form storytelling of 1990's Star Trek: Voyager. As with many Trek series, they made use of two-parters to either end/start a season or provide a larger story in the middle of the season. They examine the episodes "Basics," "Future's End," "Scorpion," and "Year of Hell." Were these stories worthy of two episodes or could they have been told another way?
