Episode 136: Is It Black Alert at Star Trek: Discovery Right Now?

Black Alert. Black Alert. Star Trek: Discovery just lost its showrunners, but it’s not like that’s happened before. (Oh wait!) We dive in on the behind the scenes drama in this week’s TR3, and then we also review another batch of Next Generation Season 5 episodes while we’re at it.

Transporter Room 3, Episode 136


There’s some Mirror Universe-style machinations going on behind the scenes at Star Trek: Discovery lately, with showrunners Aaron Harberts and Gretchen Berg getting bumped while Alex Kurtzman takes the day to day reigns of the enterprise… urm, Discovery.

Scott and Phil dive into what it all means, and how it could affect Season 2 of the show. Plus, they also cover some of the inside chatter on other possible happenings in the world of CBS All Access and Star Trek. Could a beloved character return for his own show?! Eh, probably not…

And then it’s time for more TNG Season 5 chatter, with “Imaginary Friend,” “I Borg” and “The Next Phase” all coming into focus. And of course, another Red Shirt crosses our path… even though you can’t see him!

  1. Since, Jean Lucas is an archaeology buff. Would like to see an ex-captain Picard as a Indiana Jones type character traveling around the galaxy in search of the origins of the Borg or even the Q. Maybe when he finds the origin of the Q he will become a Q and go back in time and stop the US from sending out the scout probe Voyager and erase the Star Trek motion picture from canon.
