To The Journey 143: A Stenographer's Dream / by Charlynn Schmiedt

Episode Comparison. 

Would you believe Will Riker if he said he wasn't putting the moves on a woman? What about former inmate Tom Paris if he claimed he didn't murder someone, but the victim's memories show otherwise? If you said "no," watch TNG's "A Matter of Perspective" and Voyager's "Ex Post Facto." Each episode uses the reputations of the story's main characters, Riker and Paris, against them. It is up to science and cold, hard facts (respectively) to prove their innocence. In this episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan put on their detective hats and scrutinize Voyager's "Ex Post Facto" with TNG's "A Matter of Perspective." Does one mystery stand up better than the other? Examine the evidence and find out.

Running Time: 46 minutes 25 seconds
