Nichelle Nichols has died on 30th July 2022

 Legend in her own lifetime R.I.P. Nichelle Nichols has died on the 30th July 2022: Trailblazing' actress who played the friendly Lt Uhura in Star Trek as our beloved Communications Officer aboard the USS Enterprise NCC 1701. She was 89. Nichelle Nichols broke barriers for black women in Hollywood like Whoopi Goldberg and got involved with the Space Programme NASA recruiting folks who weren't just white men but people of colour boldly recruiting  from  where no-one came before. 

The youngest and third woman into space was Sally Ride. Guy Bluford was part of the original Mercury Seven. Not to mention former cosmonaut and the first person of African heritage into space in 1980, Arnaldo Tamayo Méndez - They have all become famous astronauts. Nichelle was the kind of person who could get out there and inspire imaginations. "Hailing Frequencies Open Captain" It was Martin Luther King (fan of Star Trek) who said 'You Have Been Chosen'

Who Is Star Trek Picards Season 3 Mystery Character?

 Hi Trekkers, Who is the mystery character appearing in Star Trek Picard Seasons 3? Officially Paramount has stated LeVar Burton (Geordi La Forge), Michael Dorn (Worf), Jonathan Frakes (William T. Riker), Gates McFadden (Dr Beverly Crusher), Marina Sirtis (Counsellor Deanna Troi), and Brent Spiner (Data) will materialize alongside Patrick Stewart (Jean-Luc Picard)! 



Aside from Stewart, the two other original Picard cast members who will return for the show’s season 3 are Jeri Ryan (Seven of Nine) and Michelle Hurd (Raffi Musiker). 

 Original Picard stars Santiago Cabrera (Chris Rios), Alison Pill (Agnes Jurati), Evan Evagora (Elnor), and Isa Briones (Dahj/Sutra/Kore Soong) all confirmed revealed that they are not coming back for the show’s final batch of episodes.


Frakes, Sirtis, and Spiner have already appeared alongside Stewart in previous seasons of Picard, but it will be the first time that they will be joined by Burton, Dorn, and McFadden. 

Word has it Star Trek showrunner Terry Matalas will surprise fans.

Though the showrunner didn’t name or give any details away, he did indicate that the comeback of this "mystery character"  hits hard.

 “There’s one character who is in Next Gen who I was like, ‘I really want this character to come back.’ And when they did, that was weirdly more thrilling than everything else in totality.”

Star Trek Picard's Season 3 release dates are as follows:

Hi Trekkers, I've been watching Star Trek TNG again which makes this the 3rd time! round the United Federation of Planets again. 😁

In episode 121, THE ARSENAL OF FREEDOM, The USS Enterprise NCC 1701-D is following up on clues which eventually lead to a technologically advanced world called Minos. The mystery is... what happened to everybody on the planet?

  When Picard and co are greeted by holograms, The 607 salesman seen here is automatically activated and so full of his "extra firepower, complete weapons systems" talk, you'd never guess this technological defence wizard killed everyone on the planet including his creators.  


 So when the Enterprise-D away team beam down, Riker is greeted by a techno knock off imitating his friend Paul Rice in the jungle who is in fact..... one of the planets deadly weapon systems. So can this possibly get any worse? Well yes it does for starters Riker gets snared in a techno bubble trapping him. This meant the Captain had to beam down leaving Geordi in charge of the Enterprise-D. 



 Meanwhile killer drones swoop in for the kill and attack.  QUESTION: Why is sophisticated technical equipment still functioning on a planet devoid of life? We soon learn from the proud Echo Pappa Series 607 Salesman!



 Crusher is hurt by her fall into the Cavern, Meanwhile killer defence technology is still analysing Riker, Data and Tasha for humanoid target practise so it can construct stronger deadlier weapons! Now that only happens in Star Trek!


Why the doctor and Captain beam down is a mystery, after plunging 50 feet into a Cavern, poor Beverly struggles for her dear life. Its cool when Picard asks for options and Beverly beats Data with the answer!

PICARD: Give me some options, Data, quickly.
CRUSHER: Why don't you just shut it off?
PICARD: Is that possible?
CRUSHER: Why not? It's a machine, isn't it?
PICARD: Shut it off.
SALESMAN: Why? You haven't seen half of what this beauty can do.
PICARD: We've seen enough.
SALESMAN: Does that mean you're going to buy it?
PICARD: Yes. Yes, we've seen enough. You've made a sale.
SALESMAN: You won't be sorry.

  Meanwhile Laforge is in starship command faced with a huge challenge, as the planet soon begins attacking the ship as well!!!!!


 Basically it's a tale of survival as well as of growth for Laforge. Very simple, very direct and yet very enjoyable. Worth watching. So whose side were you rooting for? -  

1. USS Enterprise-D "beam down" away-team or 
2. Minos search and destroy superior firepower drones?

Question: What did Picard do to save everyone from extermination?

Whoopi Goldberg (Oscar and Golden Globe Winner) aka Guinan aboard the starship USS Enterprise NCC 1701-D in Star Trek the Next Generation is back. Thats right. Goldberg who has massive fans across the world and her awards speak for themselves was invited by Patrick Stewart himself onto the new Star Trek series.


"Guinan" stars in Star Trek Picard opposite the character Picard "your answers are not in the stars and they never have been" which adds spiritual realism boldly going where no-one has gone before on two levels. 1) Goldberg appeared 29 times already in Star Trek TNG as Guinan centuries older and wise beyond her years. She looks great for 100 in Times Arrow 2) now here she is again with the "Picard" 400 years younger but in a different timeline.


  Ido Aghayere steps into the role as Jean Luc's "oldest friend" Guinan in season 2 episode 4 in "Watcher"  She plays the divergence 2024 version of Guinan in a  timeline trekkers won't remember because the "new Guinan" timeline  hasn't occurred. The reason we know this to be true is Q (John De Lancie) has been messing around with time again up to his old tricks again!. So instead of the United Federation of Planets we see a divergence and Confederation of Planets!


How many seasons will Star Trek Picard have?

Three seasons

MARCH 6, 2022 - It's looking like more and more of a certainty that Star Trek: Picard will end with just three seasons. Picard showrunner Terry Matalas shared a photo from the set over the weekend, seemingly saying goodbye “forever” to Star Trek: Picard.


In the US, Star Trek: Picard season 2 is out now on Paramount Plus, with new episodes releasing every Thursday. Viewers outside of the US can watch season 2 now on Amazon Prime Video. New episodes hit the platform every Friday, the day after they air on Paramount+.

Is Star Trek: Picard coming to Netflix?

Exclusive: Star Trek's Discovery And Picard are Coming To Netflix.

Do you think Guinan is a Time Lord like Dr Who?

Guinan has had dealings with Q and the Continuum. Why is  Q afraid of her?

JEREMY HAWKINS TRIBUTE RIP - 'warp speed mr. sulu...'

 Hi Trekkers, Heres a JUNE 2012 Report To The Transporter Room comments thread I'm re- posting in honor of Jeremy Hawkins who died in January. He was our blog buddy who stopped by to say Hi over the years. Its always a shock when COVID strikes, so stay safe people. Jeremy was good at co-hosting with A to Z and it won't be the same anymore.

 His graphic blog artistry illustrates happiness delivered by a gifted mind he shared with whomever asked. thanks Jeremy. When you get the time hop over to amazon and buy something, book or t-shirt to support the family. Mine is arriving on the 17th of February.  

Report to the Transporter Room Comments

  1. Congrats Spacerguy! You got me with Spiner. LOL

  2. i am here at the transporter... do i use a key to turn it on. hehe!

  3. Spiners good at telling these yarns maurice, he does a classic Picard impersonation too.

    Totally Jeremy. You'll find the transporter key beside the retro toys.

  4. i just went to the local comic book store where they have a collection of toys.. they had the galoob's 1988 star trek next gen figures... for like four bucks each. i almost got a few, but i had no money... but the original [more recent] classic set of the bridge that includes figures... was worth half, i think it is time to play with my set. warp speed mr. sulu... you play the theme in your head, like i am.

    damn you economy!

  5. I love these retro toys especially the ships! I've warped around the galaxy with them too, hehe. Its really tough cheese missing the Galoob bargains, Jeremy. These retro toys are sooo cool 'cos well when TNG got huge we were big kids, so the toys took off ahead warp fact 9, hehe.

    I suppose the nerd in me loved building and painting AMT's model ships too, (the ones with really cool sound effects and flashing lights) but you couldn't really play with those. My Enterprise is on the shelf crying out for me. It was more fun being the engineer and putting her together. I thought all the instructions and wiring would melt my head but instead I got off building USS Enterprise NCC 1701 and it taught me something. Perservere to the end. It was really worth it. Scotty would have been proud. I felt like an accomplished Starfleet engineer, just kidding but you know what I mean.

  6. Too much Star Trek info, my head is about to explode.

  7. Then you know exactly how Security Officer Mitens feels, hehe.

  8. Who’s the absolute most terrible, awful blogger on the planet? Me!!! :-o

    My sincere apologies for taking so long to get over here, Spacerguy. Would you believe me if I told you the transporter malfunctioned and sent me to another far off galaxy and it’s taken me this long to get back? No...I didn’t think so.

    I’m running so far behind on everything, including commenting on blogs, it’s ridiculous. I truly am so pleased and honored that you thought of me (because I love your blog & I love Star Trek) and hope you’ll forgive my inexcusable tardiness. (Congrats on your awards!)

  9. No worries Susan, pesky transporters! Do you want me to send my engineer over? hehe

Hi Trekkers, Star Trek TNG episode "The price" is hosting a bunch of dignitaries aboard the USS Enterprise NCC 1701-D. Its interesting to discover who has their eyes on the Barzan wormhole. Smooth talking Betazoid negotiator Rals shenanigans with Deanna Troi's was just sheer co-incidence right? I don't think so. I mean it can't be easy being the Enterprise-D counsellor. 

Image Owner Creator:  Paramount Pictures and or CBS Studios

So with the Barzans gathered and the greedy Ferengis around who slings his hook into Deanna? Ral. His plan (being an empath himself) was to sway the bidders emotions like he was doing with Deanna. 

Meanwhile Geordi La Forge and Data  find out the "wormhole shortcut" joining the Gamma Quadrant and the delta Quadrant together isn't so stable. Would have been real neat too. A cool 200 light years shaved off starship spaceflight if the wormhole hadn't been rife with subatomic fluctuations. Yup, it was a dud. Only the Ferengi found out too late! 

 Something very strange is happening to this wormhole
