Episode 24: Does Prometheus Mean Star Trek 2's in Trouble?

So because Prometheus is a mess script-wise, does that mean writer Damon Lindelof is gonna bring a similar narrative litter box to Star Trek 2?


Of course not. But assuming the worst about one project given its single connection to another is kinda how the Internet works, and since everyone else is talking about Ridley Scott's Star Trek V Prometheus, Transporter Room 3 wanted to get in on the action.

We talk about what didn't work in the movie, the few things that did and why someone needs to go all "How many lights do you see?" on Lindelof and cure him of confusing ambiguity with effective mystery building. (It was either this or a "Shades of Gray" clip show. You're welcome.)

Oh, and want some real Star Trek 2 production news? Don't worry, we've rounded up all the latest scoops. We also find a few funny/interesting connections that Ridley Scott's movie has to Star Trek V. ("Why is God angry? And why does he look like a 'roid-ed out Powder...?")

Then beam on over to The Original Series episode "Arena" for our Red Shirt of the Week -- a victim of mortar shelling, 23rd Century-style!
