Although DS9 is generally considered the crown-holder when it comes to dark Trek stories, the good ship Voyager also saw its fare share of morally murky and extreme confrontations. So what happened when, during the fifth season finale/sixth season premiere, the writers pitted Starfleet against Starfleet in the Delta Quadrant? This week hosts Cam Smith and Tyler Orton battle the urge to break into song while revisiting the memorable Equinox two-parter, which sees Janeway channeling her inner Ahab while pursuing rogue captain Rudy Ransom and his desperate, corrupted crew. Although not as lauded among fans as Scorpion or Year of Hell, there's plenty of fodder for discussion, as the duo grapple with serious Janeway and Chakotay friction, John Savage's intense guest star performance, curious lunch menu-themed nicknames and one particularly nagging question: is the Equinox's dramatic journey a better realization of the show's juicy premise than what Voyager delivered???
