Episode 29.5: Star Trek Into Darkness -- Really?!

Episode 29.5 of Transporter Room 3 explores what happens when powerful Hollywood types fear a punctuation mark...

This past weekend, reports confirmed that J.J. Abrams' new Star Trek film will be titled Star Trek Into Darkness. Colon averse, Team Abrams is, so we get a title that is laughable at worst and shoulder-shrug at best. So we figured we needed to squeeze a quick half-a-podcast out of our colons to discuss! The nerdebate rages here!

But before we submit that title to some "how many lights do you see?" scrutiny, we revisit Episode 29's discussion from last week about Voyager's "Equinox, Part I and II," with help from an old interview with Trek writer Ronald D. Moore. Here, the Battlestar Galactica rebooter clubs Voyager like a baby seal over "Equinox's" story problems, going in-depth about why he thinks the show lacked a unique fingerprint.



And no TR3 would be complete without a Red Shirt of the Week -- this time, we give you double the cannon fodder for half of a normal episode! That's right, two Red Shirts working in tandem to court one of the worst phaser deaths ever. Haven't guessed who they are yet? Hint: They're racists. O.K., one more hint: Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.

Episode 29: Voyager Vs. Equinox Vs. TR3

You had a choice: What should we devote our next episode to -- celebrating the 30th Anniversary of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, one of the genre's best films ever, or talk about Star Trek: Voyager... one of the genre's, well, shows?

Shotgun-to-the-face surprisingly, you selected Voyager. So we strapped on our phaser rifles and threw away our Prime Directive to talk Season 5's "Equinox, Parts I and II," arguably one of Janeway and company's finest. It's Voyager vs. Equinox, another ship that got Caretaker'd to the Delta Quadrant but without Neelix's stew or Janeway's revolving hairstyles to keep them company. Equinox went dark, like zero dark thirty dark. And no I don't know what that means either. But listening to our velvet voices break down the two-parter might clarify.


But first, TR3 tackles tons (read: two or three) news blurbs about the production of J.J. Abrams' You Mean There's Still Not a Trailer Yet? Seriously?! Star Trek 2. Will Nimoy beam on back as Spock Prime? What does Spock Un-Prime have to say about his big action scene? And is Benny C. Batch really Khan?

Oh, and fans of Star Trek: The Next Generation? Ya might wanna dust off the Cmdr. Maddox cosplay -- we've got the release date for TNG's second season on Blu-ray!

All that and a Red Shirt of the Week await you in Episode 29 of Transporter Room 3, the Internet's finest piece of ear food!
