Whoa, another Trekabout special? Hold us back! This time, we’re happy to have on the show Drew Ackerman, creator and host of the thrice-weekly sleep aid podcast Sleep with Me. Billed as a “A Lulling, Droning, Boring Bedtime Story to Distract Your Racing Mind”, Drew recounts TNG episodes as bedtime stories. This week he’s telling the story of “Rascals”, so he heads over to the Trekabout Bunker to talk about baby Guinan, Ro, Keiko O’Brien, and Picard.
The Kazon return in “Maneuvers” and Seska has some shocking news. Then, in “Resistance”, the crew is shocked to find out that fascists aren’t usually reasonable.
You know that Neelix jealousy subplot we’ve been complaining about for a couple of weeks? They decided to give it a whole episode and it’s called “Parturition”! You know that Janeway gothic horror holonovel? Well, they sort of give it its own episode and it’s called “Persistence of Vision”!
This month for the monthly patrons-only podcast, to thank those who help to keep Trekabout listener supported, Eric and Richard sat down to discuss Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Spoiler alert: they hated it.

We kick off Star Trek: Voyager’s second season with “The 37s”, where the crew is now tempted by an offer of a new home. Then, in “Initiations”, the Kazon are tempted by Chakotay. Well, someone’s got to be.
Hey it’s the end of the first season of Star Trek: Voyager! In “Jetrel”, Neelix’s history is revealed to be somewhat darker than originally thought. Then, in “Learning Curve”, Tuvok is revealed to be a dour stick-in-the-mud.
Some things happen in “Cathexis” and actors perform lines, and that’s about all we can say about whatever the hell that was. Then, in “Faces”, Star Trek: Voyager gives us a character study of B’Elanna Torres, complete with body horror.
