Episode 64: The Worst of TNG Season 7

Having sex with space ghosts. Discovering long-lost siblings. Masaka!

Transporter Room 3, Episode 64

Subscribe:

Yep, it's time for Transporter Room 3 to take the final season of Star Trek: The Next Generation to task. With recent news that Season 7 is finally coming to Blu-ray this winter, Scott and Phil revisit the lowest points of one of TNG's most uneven seasons.

From "Sub Rosa" (cringe) to "Masks" (double cringe), you won't want to miss our spot-on (read: snarky) analysis of these craptastic episodes.

We also debate the pros and "Khans" (I regret nothing!) about the rumored return of William Shatner as James T. Kirk in Roberto Orci's Star Trek 3.

And no ep of TR3 would be complete without a funeral for another Red Shirt. Who gets the torpedo tube this week? Listen now and find out!

Become a Red Shirt of the Week!

Now, finally, here's your chance to support the Star Trek podcast with the mostest!

Yes, we are now whoring ourselves out: You can buy a Transporter Room 3 T-shirt to help us keep the podcast going. And in the process, you can become a Red Shirt of the Week too!


Picking up one of our unique TR3 shirts does not guarantee you'll survive your next landing party... in fact, it pretty much guarantees the opposite. But at least you'll go out in style.

The sale of these shirts operates through Teespring, which collects the pre-orders on the shirts. You aren't charged and the shirts don't ship until we hit a target goal of a specific amount of pre-orders, which means if you really want one of these shirts, you should convince your friends/loved ones/Tribbles to buy one/100/infinity too. The proceeds from the shirts will help to support the podcast's basic operational costs.

So, you know, make it so...

Episode 63: Why You Must Watch DS9's "Doctor Bashir, I Presume" Right Now

We're back -- in record time -- with another new episode of Transporter Room 3. But spoilers follow for anyone who hasn’t watched this episode which first aired in… 1997!

This week, we go back to Deep Space Nine for a review of one of Season 5's more underrated hours, "Doctor Bashir, I Presume." A.k.a., "Julian's a Khan!"

The other half of the station's most popular bromance is revealed to be genetically enhanced with the same outlawed eugenics that gave birth to Khan Noonien Singh. Bashir soon goes on a wrath-seeking rampage, infecting the crew with Ceti eels and…

*record screech* Oops. Sorry. How'd our fan fiction get in here?

Uh, moral and ethical debates ensue as we boldly tackle this solid episode.

Another Red Shirt of the Week also pays a visit -- and you'll never guess who it is. And we also give a tiny update on Star Trek 3: The Search for More Money.

Episode 62: Travelling Back in Time to DS9’s “Children of Time”

And we're back! Transporter Room 3 caught a wee 'bout of Shore Leave and a little too much LDS, but we're here with another installment -- this time talking about one of our new favorite episodes of DS9: "Children of Time"!

And if this timey-wimey ep about Sisko and Co. having to decide the fate of their future decedents isn't one of your favs, this podcast will surely fix that.

We also talk what's in store for the Next Gen Season 7 Blu-ray and fill one more torpedo tube with another Red Shirt of the Week. Our latest victim hails from Star Trek: Insurrection and to say anything more would spoil the (plastic-surgery-gone-wrong) fun.

Episode 61: There Are Four LIGHTS! Reviewing TNG Season 6 on Blu-ray

Picard and Co. are back in amazing HD for Season 6's Blu-ray release, and Scott and Phil got your review!

Transporter Room 3, Episode 61

Subscribe:

Season 6 features some Trek highs ("Relics," "Tapestry," "Chain of Command") and lows ("Man of the People," "The Quality of Life") but everything looks damn good in 1080p -- even the Exocomps! And especially a few brief glimpses of DS9 in the two-parter "Birthright."

But is the set worth your hard-earned latinum? Listen and find out!

We also (literally) beam in a Red Shirt of the Week from Season 6, only to lose him on the transporter pad. *pours green drink in his honor*

So add a fourth duty shift to the rotation, keep proper count of them torture lights, and listen to TR3!
