Episode 20 - Captain Janeway's Transporter Trolley Dilemma

Release DATE: January 18, 2023

Ethan takes us back for a rewatch of an episode of Star Trek: Voyager, titled “Tuvix.” A miscalculation with the transporter causes two crewmates to be merged into a new being. Captain Janeway has quite the conundrum in front of her and Judaism has a few pieces of advice for her. Also, we help prepare the rabbis for important decisions they will need to make in regards to replicators.


The theme music for Torah Smash! was created by Shawn Fogel. You can check out Shawn's bands and studio work at
