To The Journey 120: After Dessert / by Charlynn Schmiedt

Top Five Janeway/Chakotay Moments. 

Behind a top-notch captain is always a top-notch first officer. Kirk and Spock shared a deep and intricate friendship that went far beyond duty. Picard and Riker always knew they could count on each other. Sisko and Kira used the differences in their points of view to see the bigger picture together and make well-rounded decisions. And Janeway had Chakotay, who was not just her first officer, but the person she eventually trusted most on the ship, developed a deep friendship with...and possibly more? The Voyager writers toyed with the idea of a Janeway/Chakotay romance when fans vocally took note of Mulgrew and Beltran's onscreen chemistry. Though the writers didn't fully go through with the idea, they gave the "J/Cers" moments that launched thousands of fanfics. In this episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan list their top five Janeway/Chakotay relationshipper moments and try not to squee too much in the process.
