Please remember to listen to the spaceship's discovery report this time. Data from an earlier boundary crossing was lost because they didn't tune in that day.

you know, I liked Voyager!

There, I said it.

roughly 11 billion miles (18 billion kilometers) from the sun.

how far is that in Rhode Islands?

The boundary take months and months to pass through, its not like a discrete border. Or is that the story they are feeding everyone because they were asleep at the wheel.

What do you think the likelihood is that these people still watching the probes have no idea wtf is going to happen or what they are talking about?

Ned Stark: roughly 11 billion miles (18 billion kilometers) from the sun.

11,000,000,000 miles / 49 miles = approximately 22,4489,796 Rhode Islands.

I just came here to mention the Oort cloud, and possibly make a groan-inducing joke like, "If they can handle interstellar space, there's no telling how far they Oort to go."

I watched season... probably 5... when it aired. Thought it was great. Watched most of 6 as well but then stopped due to life getting in the way. Several years later, (2002, maybe 2003) I figured I'd rewatch from the begnning. Holy cow was it horrible. I stopped after season 1 and never even considered looking back.

Fast forward to now, when all of Trek is on Netflix Streaming. I got it in my head to watch EVERYTHING in production order. I watched TOS, then Next Gen, then started DS9, and just recently I got to Voyager. I figured I'd give it the old college try, but gave myself an out: If I specifically remembered the episode, how horrible it was, and how it ended... I could skip it.

I have yet to skip one episode. I did skip a 90-second or so segment when Janeway was learning about her Spirit Guide (possibly the worst 90 seconds of Trek ever, and that's saying a lot) but that's *it*. I'm well past the halfway point of Season 1 and going strong.

So yeah, Voyager gets a bad rap, even by me, and it's pretty much undeserved. Is it perfect? No way. Is it good TV? Sh'yeah.

Yeah I'm working my way through season 2 of Voyager right now and in the same boat. If I remember a bad episode, it get's skipped. Same thing with TNG.

I watched all 7 seasons on netflix.

She was the only thing that made the last few seasons worthwhile.

My god, but that is one beautiful woman.

Not something to brag about.


Voyager was is awful.

The absolute best character was the Doctor, aka the EMH. The best episode was where he had to stop Romulans from stealing a prototype Starfleet vessel with the help of... Andy Dick(?!).

So am I in a time loop or are these things "about to leave the solar system" every 6 months for the last 10 years or so?

If only the Doctor hadn't given Andy Dick the subroutines for genitalia, Starfleet would have won the war against the Dominion two years earlier.

If there is one thing that bugged me the most about ST:VOY it was the stunt casting in the middle/late
period of the show's run, though I really can't complain since by then I'd stopped watching it altogether.

In the previous decade Voyager penetrated the Solar System's hypodermis. Now it's headed for the epidermis and will squirt out into interstellar space like a popped zit. Unless David Brin was right in "The Crystal Spheres."

Are you seriously suggesting that a NASA Employed, formally educated Space scientist isn't the most qualified person to make deductions, predictions, and analysis on data from Voyager? Because, frankly thats retarded. Im not exactly sure what your point here is.

The best episode of Voyager, and won one of the top 10 episodes of Trek, was "Timeless", when the ship crashed and was buried into a glacier with the crew all dead. Awesome sauce.

Godspeed, Voyager 1. First in Interstellar Flight.

"Voyager 1, which launched on Sept. 5, 1977, is roughly 11 billion miles (18 billion kilometers) from the sun. Its twin Voyager 2, which blasted off on Aug. 20 of the same year, is 9.3 billion miles (15 billion km) from the sun."

They launched Voyager 2 a few weeks before Voyager 1?

Yep. Even though Voyager 1 was launched two weeks after Voyager 2, its reaching the outer system faster because its launch gave it a shorter trajectory.

So Voyager 2 launched first, but its taking a longer curved path and thus is actually slower/later.
