Episode 80: The Crying Vulcan and His Starship Commander

Welcome back, listeners. We're fresh from our recent visit to the set of Star Trek Beyond (more on that later). But as promised, first we have to get all emotional with our review of "Sarek"!

Transporter Room 3, Episode 80


This week we shed a tear over that great TNG episode, which brought the beloved TOS character to Picard’s Enterprise. This episode of Next Generation has everything: a bar fight, Picard yelling at Riker, Wesley really yelling at Geordi and more -- Bendii Syndrome for everyone!


Plus, Patrick Stewart tells us whether or not he’d ever put the Starfleet duds on again, and a very special Red Shirt glows his silver eyes at us. He truly went "where no man has gone before" (hint)!

But about Star Trek Beyond… While we can't say much about our visit to Justin Lin's first Trek movie set, the few things we can say you're gonna want to hear.

Transporter Room 3, Episode 80



  1. Great episode, as usual. Picard's scene at the end *should* be hokey, yet it ends up being anything but.

    Might I suggest (if it hasn't been covered already) a look back at some of the utterly forgettable TNGseason 1 episodes? Some of them (Angel One, Home Soil, Symbiosis... okay, every frigging one) don't even seem like proper Star Trek episodes. It's as if most of the first season is a completely different show.

    1. Great idea, Mike -- though we might hurt ourselves from all the laughter at those episodes!

  2. Another great show guys!!!
