Episode 103: Patrick Stewart and Ensign Ro Beam on Down

You guys, “Ensign Ro” is the sh**. Both the character and her debut episode, which we're breaking down this week on Transporter Room 3!

Our first look at the "Bajora" -- and that's not a typo -- and the beginnings of the Cardassian-Bajoran conflict that would shape DS9 are all here. Darker than most Next Gen episodes, full of double-crosses, political intrigue, and shady Starfleet Admirals, this Season 5 classic arguably plays better now than it did 26 years ago.

We also have Captain Picard himself, Patrick Stewart, offering his take on the current political climate. And not one but eight Red Shirts get eulogized. All that, plus a Discovery update.

Pull up a chair in Ten Forward, grab some of Aunt Adele's tea and listen now!

Episode 102: Phil and Scott at Tanagra! Why 'Darmok' Still Holds Up 25 Years Later

Transporter Room 3 beams on down with another review, and this time it’s Season 5's "Darmok." And we do the whole podcast in metaphor! (I kid, I kid.)

This classic Trek is both an all-timer for the series and the genre, and we break down why. (And we also throw some shade at Riker's questionable command strategy while Picard is getting his "Shaka, when the walls fell" on.)


We also have some Star Trek: Discovery to discuss, and Scott serenades us with The Ballad of Sorrow that is dealing with Eaglemoss customer service. And a Red Shirt, obvi.

So brush up on the Epic of Gilgamesh, go all "Temba, his arms wide" and listen now to our newest episode!
