Episode 32: The Next Generation Hits the Big Screen. Again!

Transporter Room 3 went where no man hasn't gone before -- to the movies -- to watch in glorious, face-melting HD two episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation's second season.

Transporter Room 3, Episode 32


"Q Who" (which is harder to pronounce aloud than you'd think) and "The Measure of a Man" were screened this week to celebrate TNG's upcoming Season 2 release on Blu-ray, and the results were a damn good time. We're pretty sure buying a ticket to sit down with underdressed, overweight pals and watch episodes from a 25-year-old sci-fi TV show is exactly what someone has in mind when they say the phrase "Nerd Prom." My only regret? All this bi-coastal nonsense kept me and my date, Scott Collura, apart!

Ahem. So do both episodes hold up? Of course they do. But one holds up more. Which one? Listen and find out!

And as always, we add another soiled Red Shirt to the incinerator -- and appropriately enough, this week's junior-ranking collateral damage hails from Season 2 of The Next Generation. He's just one of the many helmsmen who picked the wrong day to be on duty when the Enterprise encountered a spacial anomaly. (Important safety tip: If you ever encounter a disembodied, sentient, vaguely-Asian face -- run. Like you stole something.)

So fire up the Winamp player or whatever the kids are using these days and listen to Episode 32 of TR3! Love, Phil.
