Episode 26: The Next Generation in HD. Hell. Yes.

Episode 26 of the Transporter Room 3 podcast kicks off just in time to celebrate the release of Star Trek: The Next Generation on Blu-ray!

Transporter Room 3, Episode 26


Twenty-five years after Picard and the space cheerleader outfit made their debut, Season 1 of Next Gen launched their HD premiere in style by screening two episodes in movie theaters nationwide. Scott and our most popular (read: only) guest star, Jordan Hoffman, Trek'd (*dodges tomatoes*) to see how "Where No One Has Gone Before" and "Datalore" hold up in 1080p. Jordan joins us to discuss!


We also have the nerd equivalent to a 'Nam flashback, as we reflect on our tour of the most recent Comic-Con. Scott reveals a close encounter with an unexpected "7 of 9" cosplayer, while Phil blames Karl Urban's non-reveal of Star Trek 2 footage on Dr. McCoy doing a little too much LDS. (Reference!)

And of course we got another Red Shirt of the Week to eulogize! This time, we go outside the ranks of Starfleet to profile one of "Datalore's" many underage causalities at the snowflake-y hands of the Crystalline Entity! 

All that and 30% more Jordan Hoffman than the usual podcast fare await you and your listening holes!
