We also have some Reader Mail regarding Rios and his EHs, and a Red Shirt from Commander Riker himself!

This week, we review "Absolute Candor" with nothing less than what the episode's title promises. More Reader Mailbag is in store as well, as we try to figure out why Synths are bad but EMHs are good.

So put down your paper books, turn on your Emergency Hospitality Hologram, and listen now to Transporter Room 3's newest ep.

Episode 180: Picard Ep. 3 Brings Back Hugh, EMHs… and ‘Engage’

"The End Is the Beginning" is a fitting title for Star Trek: Picard's third episode, as it starts with Picard's Starfleet resignation and ends with his first deep space mission in 14 years.

There's a lot of spinning plates here -- the secret history of the Borg Collective, the two Romulan siblings who only speak in bad '90s action movie villain-ese, and Picard's new Firefly-type crew. So what did we think? Listen and find out!


We also have some reader mailbag that asks a BIG question regarding the rogue androids and, of course, there's a Red Shirt. Well, what's left of him.

So take a hit off Raffi's vape, get comfy, and listen now to TR3!
