Eye of the Needle.

When Voyager first started making its way home from the Delta Quadrant, the crew were full of hope that they would find a way home that was as quick as the one that stranded them. In “Eye of the Needle,” such a thing almost happened, and the helping hand came from a familiar foe: the Romulans.

In this episode of The Ready Room, we’re joined by Charlynn Schmiedt, Will Nguyen, and Zachary Fruhling to discuss this story from when Voyager was still fresh, the Doctor’s identity dilemma, the crew’s family connections, and the science behind it all.

In our news segment we take a first look at Hallmark’s 2016 Star Trek ornaments lineup, William Shatner and the Autobiography of Captain James T. Kirk, and discuss Idris Elba’s role as lead villain in the first Peggverse film.
